Kill Switch pulls you in and throws surprises all along the way. At the opening it appears that Daniel or Young Man as his grandfather calls him, is spending his last summer caring for his Da, an eccentric old man with Alzheimer's. Daniel was always close to Da and he wonders why his dad never was. Then it seems that stuff he remembers may not be make believe, but the memories of a life and career not for the Department of Agriculture, but a life of violence. When 2 guys he worked with keep showing up because Da's starting to talk about his past too much and want to put him in a home, Daniel decides it's time to go on the lam with his cousin.

Lynch's writing is tight, never using unnecessary words to create this thriller, rather going for the ambiguous. What is clear is that Daniel turns out to be more like his Da then we thought. Perhaps his dad knew more than Daniel thought he did.
