It’s Los Angeles.
JAKE LOGAN, a struggling young actor with a Harvard background, hasn’t gotten a part in months.
A chance meeting with an old friend leads to an unusual new gig—as a private tutor for APRIL KIM, a highly intelligent seventeen-year-old from a wealthy Asian family whose life’s goal is to attend Harvard.
But there’s a big problem. Jake soon discovers that April is a devious, manipulative, backstabbing overachiever who will stop at absolutely nothing to get what she wants.
It’s a battle of wills, and what starts out as a simple relationship between teacher and student quickly turns much darker.
By the time Jake tries to escape, it’s too late. The family’s dark gravity pulls him back, plunging him even deeper into April’s twisted psyche—
—where he ultimately discovers her deepest secret.
It’s a new twist on your favorite old story. It’s fast, fun, and smart. It’s a JAKE LOGAN PRIVATE TUTOR MYSTERY.
