(2004)
A novel by

 
 
A gripping psychological crime novel that follows the success of his first, Outside the White Lines.

Rubble lives in a caravan and works on a battery farm. Totally oblivious to the outside world, he spends his days disposing of the sick and injured chickens. One day a mysterious visitor arrives and sees Rubble’s childlike naivete combined with an ability to kill without compunction. Soon Rubble is employed on a sinister secret project.

Rubble’s only chance of realizing how he’s being cruelly used lies with the one person he confides in: a phone-line fortune-teller. But just how disturbing must her caller’s revelations become before she is prepared to take action? In this chilling thriller, Chris Simms plunges once again into the darkest reaches of human psychology: what it is that drives one person to kill another.
