    Fargo's second psychological thriller (following Temper, 2019) will satisfy her fans and delight revenge aficionados everywhere. Scarlett Clark is a popular English professor at Gorman University. But Scarlett has a secret: "I've spent the last sixteen years murdering men who deserve it." All of her victims have come from the university community, so it's no surprise that campus officials decide to appoint a special investigator. In her initial arrogance—and, later, thanks to a heated romantic relationship—Scarlett puts her secret life at risk. Meanwhile, Gorman freshman Carly Schiller is trying to keep a low profile, but her roommate, Allison, has plans for her, and the two students develop an intense friendship. When Allison is sexually assaulted, Carly becomes obsessed with making a frat boy pay. Intense is the key word here, and the author does an astonishingly good job in getting inside the heads of Scarlett and Carly as they take turns narrating. A Shakespeare class on Titus Andronicus is cleverly inserted into the story: "Vengeance is in my heart, death in my hand, Blood and revenge are hammering in my head."
