James Jeter, the notorious serial killer with a sixth sense, holds court inside London’s Wormwood Scrubs Prison. He’s the focus of the “North Wing Project.” Under the influence of a hallucinogen, Jeter can create an alternative world known as “The Rift” containing the souls of his victims.
Pardons are on offer to inmates who’ll enter The Rift. Michael Keeler has nothing to lose and little to live for. He’s sent into The Rift to learn the identity of Jeter’s last victim.
It’s a mission where the guilty can be redeemed, but at a price…
The book features original cover and interior art by Alan Clark.
What They Are Saying About The Scrubs :
“The Scrubs is one merciless piece of work, in both the setting of Wormwood Scrubs prison and its colorful, even tragic, inmates, Simon has created a terse, tense, and powerful novella that closes in on the reader like the worst case claustrophobia you’ve ever had. An excellent achievement, and a real milestone in Simon’s career.”
