Ruthin Library Reading Group – 13th June, 7.30

The Insect FarmThe Insect Farm – Stuart Prebble

When 20-year-old Jonathan Maguire wakes up in a pool of blood and with a dead body beside him, his shock and grief quickly turn to panic. Being arrested for murder will prevent him from fulfilling the promise he made to his parents – that after their death he would take care of Roger, his mentally handicapped older brother. Roger lives in a strange and complex world of his own creation – populated by millions of tiny insects – his insect farm. As the police move in, it emerges that Roger may know far more than he has revealed, and the action hurtles towards a stunning conclusion.
