The Game Changer by Dave Dröge is a gorgeous read, a beautiful mix of crime, intrigue, and thriller, featuring great and interesting characters. Henk van Wijnen-Swarttouw is a successful entrepreneur, but his business is not without shady dealings and he may not escape charges of corruption and tax evasion this time around. At the same time that his company is about to go under, Henk has a new challenge. His daughter, Julia, who has just turned eighteen is very intelligent and has her own plans, and they may be just the contrary of everything the dubious entrepreneur has stood for. Her obsession for art and her recent involvement with the Moroccan named El Bachir, coupled with her dream about sustainability, are issues that challenge Henk. Readers are introduced to a powerful drama taking place between father and daughter, each poised to change the other.
I adored the way Julia's character is developed and how aptly she justifies the title of this absorbing novel. She is intelligent and determined. The conflict evolves around her and themes like art, education, love and passion, among others, are neatly built into her world. The writing is gorgeous, laced with manifold descriptions that are vivid and captivating. The plot is complex, propelled forward by a multilayered conflict and the compelling and believable characters. There is a nagging sense of suspense that dominates this work, evoked through the shifts in perspective and scenes. The narrative voice is so clear it has readers absorbed. Dave Dröge is a gifted writer and The Game Changer is a great piece of entertainment.
