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 Scrubs by Simon Janus (Simon Wood) is a weirdly twisted ride though a prison experiment. James Jeter is a serial killer who happens to be the focus of the experiment that took place in the prison where he was sentenced. By hooking Jeter up to a feeding tube that contains the hallucinogen wormwood, Jeter is able to open up ‘The Rift’ which is an alternate world that houses all of his victim’s souls. With hopes of being able to control ‘The Rift’ and make money, inmates are offered the chance to enter ‘The Rift’ in trade for early release. Of course ‘The Rift’ isn’t puppies and rainbows since it is the mind of a psychotic serial killer and the inmates are subjected to horror with bizarre twists. Michael Keeler suffers from a tremendous amount of guilt after a robbery went horribly wrong. He accepts the offer to enter the weirdness that is ‘The Rift’ since he feels like he deserves whatever comes to him. While there he learned about Jeter’s last victim, a young boy, who wasn’t located before Jeter was sentenced to prison. Keeler made it his mission to find the boy’s soul in ‘The Rift’ and bring him out safely. Does Keeler save the little boy or just create more problems? You will have to read this awesome and twisted tale to find out! Due to the graphic nature in this book, I’d suggest that it be read by only mature adult audiences.
