    Several best-selling authors were kind enough to read an advance copy of Switch and offer an opinion. Here's what they had to say: ?A terrific little-guy-in-big-trouble thriller . . . think Saw meets Payback moving at warp speed ? with the emphasis on warp.? ? Lee Child, #1 ...

    This was a great read. It was full of action, suspense, and heartfelt moments. I liked how the perspective changed between 2-3 plot lines so we got to experience the best of each story. One of the features of the book is that the protagonist gets a call from the "watcher" and he te...

    You will like this book if you like fast-paced thrillers, like those by Linwood Barclay or Harlan Coben. The story premise is original and the writing is good. It's tightly plotted and suspenseful. I really identified with the characters and felt their pain as they faced some diffi...

    I like books written by Canadian authors (McKenzie was born in Scotland but lives in British Columbia) and mysteries ... so this book appealed to me. I started it yesterday and it was hard to put it down! The chapters are short and snappy ... and I kept saying, "I'll just read on...

    What a great Debut novel. I will definitely read more of this author's books. Fast paced, edge of the seat, very well written, and short chapters, I love short chapters, makes it easier to put the book down when one has to. Double kudos to Mr. McKenzie for this outstanding story. ...

    I won a paperback copy of ?Switch? by Grant McKenzie, on Goodreads.com and am posting an honest review. I gave it a rating of 4 stars. This face-paced thriller keeps you turning the pages. I kept trying to find a stopping point to insert my bookmark, but was so engrossed in the ...

    As genre fiction, a great read. I've been reading so much experimental and avant-garde fiction, it was a nice break to read "Switch." Exciting, with passages of fine language. I look forward to reading more by Grant McKenzie between bouts of Beckett :) ...

    Reason for Reading: The summary of this debut book by a resident Canadian had me very interested. All I can start out with is a big WOW! This is not quite my usual fare of thriller which usually consists of the serial killer variety so I was not prepared for the intense serial-ness ...

    How far would you go to save your family?,what would you be willing to do to save them?,that is the dilemma that Sam White has to face as his life is torn apart by someone who has kidnapped his wife and child, as well as who can he trust as his life spirals out of control. As a pare...

    If you like Harlan Coben you'll like Grant, his writing Is fast paced and exciting, you feel like you're on a roller coaster when you're reading safely in bed .... ...

    this was an exellent story, fast paced, couldnt put it down. Should be made into a movie ...

    Several best-selling authors were kind enough to read an advance copy of Switch and offer an opinion. Here's what they had to say: ?A terrific little-guy-in-big-trouble thriller . . . think Saw meets Payback moving at warp speed ? with the emphasis on warp.? ? Lee Child, #1 ...

    This was a great read. It was full of action, suspense, and heartfelt moments. I liked how the perspective changed between 2-3 plot lines so we got to experience the best of each story. One of the features of the book is that the protagonist gets a call from the "watcher" and he te...

    Failed actor and full-time security guard, Sam White, is coasting through life, trying to provide for his family, when a phone call changes everything. His wife and daughter have been kidnapped and will be returned only if Sam does what the caller asks, and what he asks is criminal, to...

    You will like this book if you like fast-paced thrillers, like those by Linwood Barclay or Harlan Coben. The story premise is original and the writing is good. It's tightly plotted and suspenseful. I really identified with the characters and felt their pain as they faced some diffi...

    I like books written by Canadian authors (McKenzie was born in Scotland but lives in British Columbia) and mysteries ... so this book appealed to me. I started it yesterday and it was hard to put it down! The chapters are short and snappy ... and I kept saying, "I'll just read on...

    What a great Debut novel. I will definitely read more of this author's books. Fast paced, edge of the seat, very well written, and short chapters, I love short chapters, makes it easier to put the book down when one has to. Double kudos to Mr. McKenzie for this outstanding story. ...

    I was really impressed by this book, especially to say it is a debut novel by the author, it had me captured so I didn't want to put it down. Fast moving story with twists which reminded me of Harlan Coben's style of writing ...

    Very enjoyable debut novel. Fast paced, interesting plot and characters. Made me wonder what I would do in the same situation. Great book for the plane or beach or a rainy day! ...

    I won a paperback copy of ?Switch? by Grant McKenzie, on Goodreads.com and am posting an honest review. I gave it a rating of 4 stars. This face-paced thriller keeps you turning the pages. I kept trying to find a stopping point to insert my bookmark, but was so engrossed in the ...

    As genre fiction, a great read. I've been reading so much experimental and avant-garde fiction, it was a nice break to read "Switch." Exciting, with passages of fine language. I look forward to reading more by Grant McKenzie between bouts of Beckett :) ...

    Book was told to be a great fast passed read by a lady by the name of Liz at a chapters store Love what she shows me as all excellent reads This one was fantastic short chapters that make you want just one more and action story line A great book and one hard to put down ...

    Excellent read! The question that every reader will ask themselves is... How far would you go? If you like a good mystery sprinkled with revenge you'll love this book. I can't wait to read the next Grant McKenzie book. ...

    A nutter-stole-my-family thriller from first-time author Grant McKenzie. It moves at a phenomenal pace and is an easy read. The plot stretches credibility too far in places but it's a decent entertainment for reading on the beach. ...

    Mature read..but you know that. A in depth mystery and twisted adventure. Glad I had the chance to read. *follows basic mystery blackmail plot. ...

    Really good read that made me think, what would I do? Great debut book! ...

    I couldn't put this down, Great story and great pace ...

    Not too bad. Very quick read, fast-paced also. Would make a good movie. ...

    Very good, streamlined no-hold-barred thriller. The book only falters at the conclusion. I found the underlying motive of the villain to be unconvincing for the amount of mayhem created. The story also seems to end too abruptly. But it was a fun ride! ...

    Canadian author - - fabulous read. ...

    4.5* ...

    Tightly woven with some surprise elements. ...

    This was a great read. It was full of action, suspense, and heartfelt moments. I liked how the perspective changed between 2-3 plot lines so we got to experience the best of each story. One of the features of the book is that the protagonist gets a call from the "watcher" and he te...

    You will like this book if you like fast-paced thrillers, like those by Linwood Barclay or Harlan Coben. The story premise is original and the writing is good. It's tightly plotted and suspenseful. I really identified with the characters and felt their pain as they faced some diffi...

    As genre fiction, a great read. I've been reading so much experimental and avant-garde fiction, it was a nice break to read "Switch." Exciting, with passages of fine language. I look forward to reading more by Grant McKenzie between bouts of Beckett :) ...

    A nutter-stole-my-family thriller from first-time author Grant McKenzie. It moves at a phenomenal pace and is an easy read. The plot stretches credibility too far in places but it's a decent entertainment for reading on the beach. ...

    Not too bad. Very quick read, fast-paced also. Would make a good movie. ...

    Very good, streamlined no-hold-barred thriller. The book only falters at the conclusion. I found the underlying motive of the villain to be unconvincing for the amount of mayhem created. The story also seems to end too abruptly. But it was a fun ride! ...

    Canadian author - - fabulous read. ...

    4.5* ...

    Tightly woven with some surprise elements. ...

    Talk about blood and guts! This book had them both in spades. The plot was coherent, the writing ok, but the shock of all the violence overshadowed all for me. ...
