Product Description

When a teen boy receives a written warning from his friend to avoid his church and leave his remote island town immediately, he's terrified-his friend died weeks ago! He knows danger is up ahead when he realizes that his friend's dead man's switch computer program has been activated. Unsure who to trust, he sets out alone to unravel a dark conspiracy. Soon, the seeker soon becomes the hunted in an unknown wilderness. The only hope for escape is a trigger-happy hermit-a man with his own secrets to hide.

Editorial Reviews

"Dead Man's Switch was a very intriguing book and I could hardly put the book down! Every chapter was interesting and suspenseful. This book will captivate the young adults who read it and I am looking forward to introducing the book to the older students!"
Dale Ketcheson, Early Years Literacy Support/Reading Recovery, Rivererheights School

"I could not put this book down. This thriller moves right along, from one perilous and nail-biting situation to the next. Not only that, but the book touches on major issues important to people whose future will be more and more wrapped up in technological advances—privacy, security, and power. I will recommend this for my middle- and high-school students."
Yvonne M. Lacy, M.L.S., librarian, Liberty Christian School

"This book is in particular suspenseful, a page-turner. It would make a great movie!"
Sandy Lange, Literacy Center Coordinator, Lake Pend Oreille High School

    I've been a fan of Sigmund Brouwer's books since I read the Legends of Laramie series. He has a way to make the characters real and is able to mix the real with the fiction effortlessly and bring you into the story. When I saw that he had a new book for YA coming out I knew I had to read it. And it is safe to say, Dead Man's Switch didn't disappoint!

    Dead Man's Switch takes you on a wild ride as you follow William King, or Lyon King to his friends, as he works his way through a mystery his friend Blake had set up for him. What scares King though is that Blake is dead, so Blake knew that people were after him and set up this Dead Man's Switch, King realizes that with the information he is uncovering, these people will be after him as well and he can't trust anyone in charge. So he has to work through these clues as fast as he can before the ones chasing him catch up.

    The twist and turns of this story kept me wanting to find out what was going to happen next. This was also a story that, if I had to set it down, I could pick it back up and be right back in the story with no problem. I also enjoyed that King fit his age. He was a smart kid, but he did need help and seeing that made this story all the better.

    Dead Man's Switch had a slight Hunger Games/ Matched feel. It's a story that could easily be a set up for a dystopian, wow! It is one that makes you think about what is going on out there that we don't know about. The remote setting of this story amplified that feeling.

    This was a fun book!

    Thank you to Harvest House, I received a copy of this book for free in exchange for an honest review.

    Tautly-written with intense, action-packed scenes, "Dead Man's Switch" will grab you from the beginning pages and then hurtle you to the end! Brouwer does a fantastic job at building up the tension as the story progresses along, all viewed through the eyes of the intriguing youth William King. William is not your typical character, as he is living on a remote island with little contact with those living on the mainland. As such there is a certain mystique about him and his friends, and I liked the element of the unexpected that this gave not only to William but the other characters as well. I also enjoyed the way the author explores his relationship with his father, and the manner in which loving families are celebrated. While the story doesn't present a clear gospel message in and of itself, God can be clearly seen in the story, not only in the conversation William has with his dad, but also in the beauty of self-sacrifice and laying down your life for others. While written primarily for the young adult audience, I am certain that people of all ages will enjoy the interesting plot and the themes of power and betrayal, as well as considering what happens when we blur the lines between right and wrong.

    I strongly recommend this novel and award it 4 out of 5 stars.
