We’ve made it no secret that bestselling author Joseph Finder’s Guilty Minds is one of our favorite books of 2016. The question is, coming off such a strong novel, how will Finder top himself next year? Now, thanks to the author himself, we have our very first clue.
Finder took to social media this afternoon to announce that his next book, titled The Switch, is scheduled for release on June 13, 2017.
Big news! My new book THE SWITCH is coming out next June. Keep an eye out for more information soon! https://t.co/qNFZLx9ubx

While the author didn’t give us much, announcing only the title and release date, I do have a few insider details I can provide.
Back in March, when we reported Finder’s new three-book deal with Dutton, I was told by a source with his publisher that his 2017 novel would not be a sequel to Guilty Minds. Instead, Finder would be taking a break from Nick Heller, his series protagonist of three novels, to write a standalone book about a man who finds himself caught up in a government conspiracy.
After that conversation (in March), I was definitely under the impression that Finder would return to his Nick Heller franchise in 2018, and possibly again for the final book on his current deal a year after that. So while his next novel will be a standalone story, there should be plenty more Heller in the future.
The truth is, we’ll be reading whatever Finder writes. Without question, he’s one of the genre’s top novelists and is always a safe bet to deliver adrenaline-pumping thrillers that keep you on the edge of your seat.
