The Switch Book Review


””



Title: The Switch
Author: Joseph Finder
Published: June 13, 2017, Dutton
No. of Pages: 384
Cover Price: $28.00 Hardcover, $13.99 Kindle



The security line at the airport is not a pleasant experience, even when everything goes well. But when Michael Tanner gets home from a business trip, he learns that he has the wrong laptop and the result may become deadly. The Switch by bestselling author, Joseph Finder, tells the story of Tanner, owner of a fledgling coffee company. He opens the laptop to find that the password is on a sticky note, and that it belongs to a powerful US Senator. He also finds that the laptop has top secret security information. Tanner makes some very bad decisions and doesn’t turn the laptop over to the senator, and as the story evolves, learns just how powerful and unscrupulous politicians and government agencies can be.

Reading this novel is similar to reading the headlines of major newspapers where corruption and deception are the norm for politicians and where regular citizens have no recourse against it. The story will grab readers immediately, and the novel will be very difficult to put down. It is reminiscent of some of the political issues in modern-day politics, i.e., unexplained deaths, suicides, and accidents, as well as politicians stopping at nothing to keep their power and save face.

Joseph Finder again shows why he is a bestselling author – he has excellent storytelling abilities and is able to focus on issues that are relevant to what is presently going on in the world, i.e., dirty politics, politicians who are willing to do anything to cover up their lack of ethics and blatant dishonesty, as well as an uncanny ability to twist the truth and fool vulnerable constituents. His characters in The Switch are well-developed and believable.

If you want to read something to make you feel good about politics, you’ll want to skip this one. It is highly recommended, however, for anyone who isn’t living in a dream world where politicians are telling the truth and aren’t dangerously guarding their power.

Special thanks to NetGalley for supplying a review copy of this book.
