From the Editor

The Mentor raised my blood pressure. Was it the emotionally charged beginning that started the spike? I was in turmoil, reading frantically and feeling as vulnerable as the characters on the page. As the story unfolded, a paranoid feeling grew inside me that made me question the characters’ every motive. Everyone is a potential suspect.

The book opens with a valiant police officer—Eric Shaw of Scotland Yard—coming to the rescue as a young girl realizes the gruesome murder of her family was not just a dream. Eric’s strong presence and calm voice immediately assure her that she is safe now, she can come out from under the bed, he can help her.

Twenty years later we meet an older, more established Eric leading Scotland Yard’s forensics department and see that our trust in him was well placed. He is assisted by a promising (and beautiful) young protégé who tries to lure him out of his comfort zone. There is no greater compliment than “I look up to you,” but how close is too close? In this line of work, Eric knows not to get his emotions involved. And can he afford distractions when a killer is on the loose?

If the twists and turns torment you and drive you to increasingly paranoid thoughts, remember: it’s only fiction.

- Gabriella Page-Fort, Editor


Editorial Reviews

From the Author

The main character is a chief forensics detective, Eric Shaw, who investigates a series of murders that seem related to a cold case involving a person he cares for.
The border between investigation and crime becomes blurred in a story that isn't exactly about finding the culprit, but rather observing how the main character decides to react to his findings.

This is the first book in a trilogy. The second book, Syndrome, and the third book, Beyond the Limit, are currently only available in Italian.

A note about The Mentor.
Although I included some real information about the organization of police forces in London, I nevertheless took full artistic license concerning professional positions of numerous employees, as well as the logistics and procedures utilized by the Forensic Science Service Laboratory and Murder Investigation Teams of London's Metropolitan Police Service in order to better adapt them to the plot.  

This edition was published in the United States, therefore it was translated from Italian into American English.
