The Insect Farm

The Insect Farm

An eerie debut suspense novel that explores how little one man may know his own brother–and his own mind.
The Maguire brothers each have their own driving, single-minded obsession. For Jonathan, it is his magnificent, talented, and desirable wife, Harriet. For Roger, it is the elaborate universe he has constructed in a shed in their parents’ garden, populated by millions of tiny insects.
Roger is known to all as a loving, protective, yet simple man, but the ever-growing complexity of the insect farm suggests that he is capable of far more than anyone believes. Following a series of strange and disturbing incidents, Jonathan begins to question every story he has ever been told about his brother–and if he has so completely misjudged Roger’s mind, what else might he have overlooked about his family, and himself?

Reader Reviews


"Chilling and suspenseful, rich and human."—Lee Child, #1 bestselling author of Personal

"Only rarely do a gripping psychological crime story and a literary writer's insight and masterful style coincide. But The Insect Farm has that distinction. You'll read this book fast, so compelling is the story, then--I guarantee--go back and read it again to savor the author's gift for rich, lyrical writing. A tour de force."—Jeffery Deaver, bestselling author of Solitude Creek

"The opening few pages of The Insect Farm so grabbed me that I couldn't stop reading. This is one of the most original, surprising, and even shocking suspense thrillers that I've come across in a long time."—David Morrell, bestselling author of Inspector of the Dead and Murder as a Fine Art
