In The Switch by Joseph Finder, a traveler picks up the wrong laptop at the airport. It just happens to belong to a US Senator and contains details about a NSA surveillance program. A tug of war ensues between a reporter, who wants to expose the secrets and Senator’s chief of staff, who wants to recover put a lid on the secrets and save his boss’s hide. As in any good thriller, the action “whizzes by quickly and suspensefully” (Kirkus Reviews). In A House among the Trees by Julia Glass, the sudden death of a successful children’s writer leaves the survivors to grapple with his legacy. His intimates dispute his will while a filmmaker intrudes with plans for a documentary. Glass’s story of personal and artistic legacies is “as grippingly readable as it is thoughtful” (Kirkus Reviews).
