The Farm by Tom Rob Smith (September 2015)

If you refuse to believe me, I will no longer consider you my son...

Daniel thought that his parents were safely in Sweden, enjoying a peaceful retirement on their remote farm.  With a single phone call, everything changes.

 Your mother...she's not well, his father tells him.  She's been imagining things - terrible, terrible things.

In fact, his mother has been committed to a mental hospital.

Then she calls Daniel: Everything that man has told you is a lie.  I'm not mad...I need the police...

Whom should he believe, whom should he trust?  Daniel becomes his mother's unwilling judge and jury as she presents him with an urgent tale of secrets, lies, and a crime and conspiracy that implicates his own father.  It is for him to examine the evidence and decide for himself: who is telling the truth?
