· The Mentor: A Thriller by Lee Matthew Goldberg (‘96) He may have innocuous leather elbow patches on his jacket, but Professor William Lancing is no ordinary professor. He thinks he is like Meursault, but whereas Camus’ hero has (if anything) Asperger’s, William has homicidal psychopathology, and that’s just for starters. His unlikely nemesis is Kyle Moore, a former student of the good (not!) professor and a rising star in the editorial world, to whom William submits a manuscript that rates a 10 on the gore-a-meter.

People in this book “mess with” each other to such an extent that I felt the author was messing with me. Somebody is crazy. Could it be Kyle after all? The plot twists and spins. More than once, I was really surprised.
