Baker & Taylor
Scott and Linda Gardner are delighted to be able to hire the capable Julian Sawyer to tutor their troubled teenage son, Brandon, unaware that this enigmatic man is concealing a dark agenda of his own that will destroy the family, and only Ruby, the Gardners' eleven-year-old daughter, realizes the danger.

Blackwell North Amer
When Scott and Linda Gardner hire Julian Sawyer to tutor their troubled teenage son, Brandon, he seems like the answer to a prayer. Capable and brilliant, Julian connects with Brandon in a way neither of his parents can. He also effortlessly helps Linda to salvage a troubled business deal and gives Scott expert advice on his tennis game. Only eleven-year-old Ruby - funny, curious, devoted to Sherlock Holmes - has doubts about the stranger in their midst who has so quickly become like a member of the family. But even the observant Ruby is far from understanding Julian's true designs on the Gardners.
For Julian, the Gardners are like specimens in jars, creatures to be studied - and manipulated. Scott is a gambler with no notion of odds, festering in the shadow of his more successful brother. Linda is ambitious, hungry for the cultured stimulation Julian easily provides. Brandon is risking his future late at night in the town woods. And Ruby - well, she's just a silly little girl. And in that miscalculation lies the Gardner family's only possible salvation.

I found this to be a really entertaining book - and the family endearing. Its one of those worth reading and like that we get to know the family first before all goes haywire!
