Books | Fiction / Thrillers / Psychological
From the author of the “raw, ingenious, and utterly fearless” (Wendy Walker, USA TODAY bestselling author) Temper comes a dynamic psychological thriller about two women who give bad men exactly what they deserve—perfect for fans of Killing Eve and Chelsea Cain. Scarlett Clark is an exceptional English professor. But she’s even better at getting away with murder. Every year, Dr. Clark searches for the worst man at Gorman University—professor, student, or otherwise—and plots his well-deserved demise. Thanks to her meticulous planning, she’s avoided drawing attention to herself…but as she’s preparing for her biggest kill yet, the school starts probing into the growing body count on campus. Determined to keep her enemies close, Dr. Clark insinuates herself into the investigation and charms the woman in charge. Everything’s going according to her master plan…until she loses control with her latest victim, putting her secret life at risk of exposure. Meanwhile, Gorman student Carly Schiller is just trying to survive her freshman year. Finally free of her emotionally abusive father, all Carly wants is to focus on her studies and fade into the background. Her new roommate has other ideas. Allison Hadley is cool and confident—everything Carly wishes she could be—and the two girls quickly form an intense friendship. So when Allison is sexually assaulted at a party, Carly becomes obsessed with making the attacker pay...and turning her fantasies about revenge into a reality. “A gorgeously-written ragestorm of a thriller” (Wendy Heard, author of The Kill Club), They Never Learn is a feminist serial killer story that you won’t be able to put down.

"This book reminded me a lot of the show ‘Dexter’. Very intriguing! Unfortunately I did see the twists coming, but still a great read. "
"This book was very different from what I’ve ever read. I loved the bi representation and thought, as a bi women, it was shown very well. The main female mane characters are complete opposites and the contrast in the chapters were interesting. Usually when I get duel povs I find myself favoring one of the other but I didn’t do that with this book. There aren’t as many kills in the book as I expected I think there was only 3 and I honestly thought there would be more. The book moved very slowly after the first chapter. But I somehow kept reading probably because it was just so unique."
"Such an amazing read…couldn’t put this book down!"
"27. They Never Learn- Layne Fargo 5⭐️- deliciously dark and full of revenge against male predators. Good twists and turns. I love the ending. 🤔👍🏻 "
"Saw a girl review this one in tik tok and thought it sounded good. Loved it. Somewhat predictable but then other parts weren’t at all."
