Scarlett Clark is an exceptional English professor. But shes even better at getting away with murder. Every year, she searches for the worst man at Gorman University and plots his well-deserved demise. Thanks to her meticulous planning, shes avoided drawing attention to herselfbut as shes preparing for her biggest kill yet, the school starts probing into the growing body count on campus. Determined to keep her enemies close, Scarlett insinuates herself into the investigation and charms the woman in charge, Dr. Mina Pierce. Everythings going according to her master planuntil 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 confidenteverything Carly wishes she could beand 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. Featuring Layne Fargos trademark propulsive writing style (Kirkus Reviews) and sinister, of the moment (Chicago Review of Books) suspense, They Never Learn is a feminist serial killer story perfect for fans of Killing Eve and Chelsea Cain.

oof, they never do learn. Listened to this one pretty quickly, and even tho there are many heavy moments, it felt more so like a thriller, one of those which keep you interested and not just completely bummed out when the heavy bits hit.

A very entertaining, dark revenge thriller. A female professor gets revenge on men that do not pay for their wrongs. This is a fun twisty story that is very satisfying. I may be a little twisted for saying that but 🤷‍♀️4⭐️

Here‘s my #20in4 TBR! Finished They Never Learn, which I absolutely fell IN LOVE WITH. Scarlett reminded me of Joe from You. Her dark inner thoughts were perfection, and left me rooting for her.

Next up, I‘m starting on The Power.

Andrew65 Great to have you with us, good luck. 😊👍 4mo

My #8thBookOf2021 for #August was this female serial killer revenge story that I enjoyed maybe a bit too much. Scarlett is a professor at college who in her spare time hunts male sexual predators amongst the student & teacher population and making them pay. I‘m really hoping there‘s a 2nd book! #12BooksOf2021

Andrew65 Sounds great. Stacked. 6mo

My June pick for #12BooksOf2021 hosted by @Andrew65

I loved this, probably more than I should as non-pyschopath. Scarlett is a bit like Dexter, she likes to kill bad men. She usually picks one deserving lecherous man a year, but it seems her deeds might be catching up with her. It's also interspersed with student Carly's story as she becomes obsessed with bringing her friend's attacker to justice... but more her idea of justice.

Andrew65 Looks great. 6mo

176 of 2021. Scarlett Clark is a successful professor. She also is a serial killer targeting men who commit crimes against women. Carly is a college student struggling to find her identity. Told from two viewpoints, It was a fun read. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Bk5 of August & Bk2 of #AwesomeAugust #readathon is done. And what a book it was! It was so good I couldn‘t put it down once I started, it just sucks you in and keeps you there till the end. You hear all the statistics about campus date & gang rapes and it makes me feel both enraged & helpless, so to read a story where women get their vengeance was quite satisfying. Not often you‘re cheering for the killer! #BookspinBingo #PennyPerPage #Pageathon

Finally able to sit up & hold a book again!The past two days have been horrible pain days,worst in a very long time. Doesn‘t help menopause has started I think, with hot flushes & night sweats. Soooo much fun🙄So I thought I‘d start this feminist version of Dexter where a Lit Professor is a serial killer in her spare time, taking out the rapists & perverts on her campus. I can think of a few I‘d put on my hitlist🤔Books great so far #AwesomeAugust

Ok I usually don't say this but YOU NEED THIS BOOK. Holy crap, just go out and buy it, or get it on audio and just read it! I finished it in one sitting and flew through it! This is probably the best book I've read this year, if not, of all time. I am so impressed! Every single time there was a twist I audibly gasped! I never picked up on any of the twists even tho they were in my face! I loved this book SO MUCH!! Spectacular writing! 5/5!!!

I bought this months ago simply based on the title and the blurb that said it was “perfect for fans of Killing Eve” and it did not disappoint. I‘m always up for a saucy revenge novel. 😈👍🏼

TrishB Bonkers prices in U.K.! I can have a hardback for (cd or a paperback for (cf ?‍♀️ those gates look like the Shankly gates at Anfield ? nothing to do with the story I‘m guessing. 11mo

Finished this audiobook yesterday morning on the way to get my car washed. It was quite the thriller told from the viewpoints of Carly, a freshman in college, who is awkward and findsherself drawn to her roommate. And also from the viewpoint of Scarlett, a professor at the same university, who takes it upon herself to dish out justice to men who have done very bad things to women. 👇

tracey38 It takes until the middle of the book to see how these two storylines relate to each other. This thriller had me wanting to find out what happens next. 14mo

Wow! What a fun read! I won't give spoilers but I recommend you read this! It's told in alternate narrator. One of a new freshman in college and the other in a professor's POV. But! The professor is a serial killer of abusive men.

Read it!

❐ Psychological Thriller
❐ Some Jane Doe vibes
❐ Serial killer or vigilante...???
I recently listened to Temper by this author and I liked this better than that...I still had some issues, but overall it was altogether entertaining. A college professor who preys on sexual predators...what‘s not to like? Although the ending fell apart for me a little bit, I would still definitely recommend...especially if you enjoyed Jane Doe.

Perils of academia as Scarlet targets tenure, but she‘s on the hunt as well for men who deserve killing for sexual and peer abuse. She‘s getting away with murder but suddenly there‘s a woman who is on an equally focused hunt for the killer. Fast, fun, and a twist at the end which left me very smiley 😊! #queerlisty

Last year I flew through Temper even though it wasn‘t a hit for me, so I knew I‘d need to check out her new one, especially since it‘s a revenge style thriller.

I received this via NetGalley. It was a first read for me by Layne Fargo. Scarlett Clark is an English Professor, who is at the top of her profession, but is she getting away with murder? The reader already knows that she has killed abusive men, but the whole point of the book is why. I really enjoyed the point of view of the killer and figuring out the motive and how it started. I will be reading more of Fargo.

I like the premise of this book, it just didn‘t hit me as hard as ‘Temper‘ did. 🤷🏻‍♀️ One good twist, but the other you see coming. Between a pick and a so-so, but I do like her style, so a pick.
