When Scott and Linda Gardner hire Julian Sawyer to tutor their troubled teenage son Brandon, Julian seems like the answer to a prayer. He's bright, courteous, refined, and connects with Brandon in a way neither of his parents can. They embrace Julian almost as a member of the family. But the tutor has his own dark agenda. For Julian, the Gardners are like specimens in jars, creatures to be studied - and manipulated. Each member of the family unintentionally reveals a secret to the tutor, giving him just the ammunition he needs to destroy them, one by one. Only Ruby, the Gardners' eleven year-old daughter, senses that Julian might not be what he seems and sets out to combat this seductive evil. Download and start listening now!

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lisa | 2/9/2014

    " This novel is astounding. The author's talent relies particularly in the portrayel of not only his characters, but the relationships between them. The plot was suspenseful and kept me turning the pages-- the twists were revealed towards the end, not too soon! Although this book was a delight, something seemed a little off. I'm not sure what, though. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Sharra | 1/27/2014

    " I have to say, I was very disappointed with the ending. It seemed rather rushed, in my opinion. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Carrie | 1/8/2014

    " The best P.A. book I've read... and very surprising(: "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Gina | 12/30/2013

    " Was partly entertaining, highly creepy, somewhat inexplicable, but the little girl! The little girl is the stupidest and the smartest character while also the most boring and the most interesting somehow. Plus she loves Sherlock Holmes so she's awesome. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lori | 12/22/2013

    " Loved it, really good suspenseful story. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 PokeyPuppy | 11/25/2013

    " Abrahams' writing is very understated, which I like. And although the villian is not at all likeable as a person, he is understandable and interesting. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Trisha | 11/24/2013

    " Had my heart pounding during some of the chapters. What a fun read right before bed!! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Joe O'c | 11/16/2013

    " Very Good; family hires a tutor for their high school son, and the youngest in the family - a girl fascinated by Sherlock Holmes - begins to tie increasingly troublesome events to him. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Amber Kolb | 11/13/2013

    " I really liked this book. It sucked me in right from the beginning and I wanted to keep reading to see what happened next. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sherri | 11/4/2013

    " It was a bit scary, but totally predictable. Plus, it was way too sad to do that to the dog! "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Judy | 10/5/2013

    " Author took to long to get to the exciting part. Finished it so I would know what happened. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Elizabeth | 1/23/2013

    " I vaguely remember reading this book. I believe it was good but I can't remember why. I think it was pretty suspenseful in some parts but I'm not sure. "

    " What a tough read!! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dawn | 4/1/2012

    " This books took me awhile to get into, but it ended up being pretty suspenseful. Julian was very creepy. I kept wondering what he was going to do to the family. The young daughter seemed to be the only one with any brains in the family. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lorraine | 2/17/2012

    " There was no thrill to this thriller! "

    " Twists and a good thriller with some interesting characters. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Paul Marshall | 11/19/2010

    " You just know something's going to happen and Abrahams keeps you tightly tethered to the thick plot until it finally snaps in a nail biting conclusion. The picture of John Lennon kept coming to mind as the face of the tutor. "

    " Creepy but intriguing. Makes you think about people who look like they are " all that" on the outside but maybe a psychopath underneath it all.
    I liked the little girl--good character development. "
