Being hired to tutor Sinclair’s son and to spend the summer living on this author’s estate, must have been akin to winning the lottery for a talented young writer yet to land a publishing deal. Liam’s work, however, extends beyond tutoring. He’s tasked by Sinclair to help him with his IT troubles, whenever his printer or computer acts up. That’s when Liam begins to see Sinclair’s true face.
