Sarah Broadhurst's view...

Terrific, you’ve got to read this one. It’s a race-against-time thriller with a husband/father forced to commit crimes (including murder) to protect his kidnapped wife and child. Talk about warped, especially when you find out why! The emotions, both good and evil, that run through the book set it above most in this area, and the perverted mind manipulating the action is brilliantly drawn. Great stuff.

Comparison: Simon Kernick, Richard Montanari, David Peace.

Here's what one of our members thinks of her bag
A big thank you for the two Lovereading bags I ordered, which have arrived safely. I love mine and will use it with pride. The bags are lovely quality, sturdy and support a good cause in the Rewrap initiative; I think they make the perfect accessory for any book lover. The second bag was a gift for my sister and she says she will take it to her next book group meeting to help spread the Lovereading word. Once again, many thanks. Emily Wright

Synopsis

Switch by Grant Mckenzie

How far would you go to save the ones you love? Would you run five traffic lights in a row? Would you rob a store at gunpoint?

Would you commit murder?

Security guard Sam White’s life falls apart when he arrives home to find his house a burnt-out shell with the bodies of his wife and daughter inside. Then he receives a phone call from a man who claims that his wife and child are alive and Sam can still save them.

But first, he must complete a few simple tasks.

Sam joins forces with Zack Parker whose life has also been ripped apart by the same sadistic kidnapper.

Together they plunge into the dark, labyrinthine underworld of Portland, Oregon. And into a race against time to discover the identity of the kidnapper and save their families before it’s too late.

My horizons have been broadened by some of the books I have been lucky to review and I expect it to be no different in the future.
