Reviewed by Lorraine Carey for Readers' Favorite

This is my third book by Mian Moshin Zia. I knew I was in for another great read. Young Mike Zander has been accepted into the School of Scholars, a most prestigious graduate school. He and his family are elated. Not long after Mike arrives at school, he is noticed for his high level of intelligence as most of the students use him for doing their work. However, Mike does not feel used at all as he is a true loyalist by nature, and feels he is helping his fellow students. I could feel an ache for Mike all throughout the book as Mian has that ability to really create three-dimensional characters. Mike is admired by the girls and one even goes so far as to propose to him. Mike has great respect for his teachers and is drawn by fate to an elderly professor, Madam Shirley. He even goes on to call her his sister as she feeds this mutual bond. She counsels Mike and she is his muse.

Well, folks, fairy-tale land just got ‘ugly’ here as the tables turn on Mike and he is wrongly accused of her murder. He serves a prison sentence, only awaiting his release so he can avenge her death and find the real killer. Upon his release, he sets off to find and hunt down who ruined his life. Be ready for a surprise ending - one you’ll never see coming. That’s what I love about Mian’s novels. As an educator, I really enjoyed reading about the college environment and could relate to the close bond some students have with their teachers. I believe this is an excellent read for educators.
