    Temper is a twisted tale of what happens when violence, ambition, and the taste for blood take center stage. Kira is a young actress who has caught the eye of notorious bad-boy theater director Malcolm Mercer, landing her first starring role in his latest production. Malcolm's business partner, Joanna, has suffered for years from his capricious sexual pursuits and selfish refusal to allow anyone else the chance to shine. Joanna, threatened by Malcolm's new interest in Kira, begins to look for ways to undermine both of them in pursuit of her own chance at the spotlight. As the story ominously intensifies towards the play's opening night, Malcolm's behavior generates animosity and passion from Kira and Joanna, and it's clear their stories are quickly spinning out of control. Temper alternates narrators between Kira and Johanna and builds a sense of danger and suspense that will keep readers guessing, literally until the last page. Fargo's first novel features complicated female characters and will be well received by fans of Gillian Flynn and Tana French. Copyright 2019 Booklist Reviews.
