I've read two of his Tim Rackley books and really like his style of writing. Very interesting to follow. I first read The Program and found it interesting and thinking to myself, How could someone ever let themselves be brainwashed by a cult and give up everything they have to include children. And then I picked up Kill Clause, it's the book before. I felt like I already knew the characters and has an idea of what was going on since it's the same deputy marshall in the book. Hurwitz is a young author, cute too;-), and he is writing good books. They keep you interested through the whole book and you find yourself being a huge fan of Tim Rackely in a big hurry. I'm going to have to look for his other books to since he has such good books. If you do read them I recommend you read them in order, they do stand alone but in order allows you to follow the story closer.
