If you ever read Tom Rob Smith’s Child 44 trilogy, you can expect his latest effort, The Farm, to be just as good although it is very different. Daniel’s parents have retired to a farm in Sweden which is his mother’s native country. Daniel wants to visit them someday but has been putting it off because he has been keeping the fact that he is a homosexual and in a serious relationship with someone a secret. One night he receives a panicky phone call from his father telling him his mother has been admitted to a hospital because of mental issues that have apparently been growing worse and worse. Daniel immediately makes plans to go to Sweden only to receive another call from his dad saying his mother has checked herself out of the hospital, and he doesn’t know where she is. Next his mother calls him and says she is on her way to London and tells him not to believe anything his father tells him. She says she has found out that his dad is involved in some bad things, and now he and his friends are trying to silence her. Most of the rest of the book is Daniel’s mom, Tilde, telling him everything and showing him her evidence. Together they hide from Daniel’s father who has followed Tilde to London. Daniel then travels to Sweden to discover the truth on his own. Fast paced with surprising twists and turns. Highly recommended.
