Item description for Pecking Order by Chris Simms...

“Chris Simms has created a completely new landscape of fear.”—Denise Mina

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

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.

Reviews - What do customers think about Pecking Order?

Refreshingly different  Jul 31, 2007
Again (after reading 'Outside The White Lines') excellent characterisation from Simms. Especially Rubble, the chap who lives in a caravan on the battery farm where he works.
He's approached and 'hired' to do some undercover work and having always longed to be in the army, yet never been successful, he finds his new job thrilling and much more satisfying than wringing the necks of diseased or injured birds on the farm. His only worry is how long his new job will last!

It was a fascinating, if disturbing, insight into battery farming and threw up some interesting parallels between the lives of the chickens and those elderly and infirm in society. All too often we close our eyes to the plight of others, knowing that they are unhappy or lonely. Just as many of us never consider the conditions egg laying hens have to endure on battery farms. We know it goes on of course, and if pushed we think it's unacceptable, but five minutes later have moved on to thinking about something more pleasant.

Rubble is a character who could be described as sick, strange, sad, gullible and mercenary but I'm pretty sure you'll be unable to dislike him.
