The Mentor by Lee Matthew Goldberg #BlogTour #Review

My review:

Professor William Lansing has been writing a novel for a long time and is itching to be discovered.  When he reads the paper and sees Kyle Broder's name along with an article about Kyle's newest book deal, he is in awe.  You see, William was Kyle's mentor during collage and helped Kyle through a tough time.  A time that Kyle would like to forget.

Maybe this is William's chance to finally make a name for himself.  He decides to call Kyle in the hopes that his manuscript will finally receive the attention that William is sure that it deserves.  He is convinced that he has written a masterpiece.

Kyle is happy to hear from his old Professor and agrees to read the book.  Kyle is interested to see his former Professor's work because he is sure that it will be an interesting read.  Little did he know, his professor has a twisted side and it all becomes apparent within the first few pages of reading a disturbing plot.

Kyle cannot in good conscience pass William's book along to his superiors.  He tries to tell William nicely that his publishing company will not be interested in the book.  William doesn't take the news in stride.  He is willing to do whatever it takes to see his precious masterpiece in print.

How far will William go to fulfill his dream?

After reading the synopsis, I had a feeling that I would enjoy this book.  I had no idea that it was going to suck me in and leave me wanting more.  The relationship between the two main characters is astounding.

I was shocked by William's book in a way that was totally unexpected.  I love when a book takes me by surprise.  The Mentor is a thrilling tale that is unlike anything I have read in the past.  If you enjoy a good suspenseful read, then you should introduce yourself to The Mentor.
