Flipping the Switch

Katherine Covell

Alison and Simon lost their daughter to a careless driver who escaped serious punishment. Decades later, at a beach resort in Thailand, they meet other tourists who have suffered similar losses because of cruel or careless people.

When the group learns the careless driver has killed another child, they discuss if killing a person is ever justified, and if they could do it. Conversation about how far they might go to avenge or protect children leads to a series of life-altering events for all of them.
