Publisher Description

Edgar Award Nominee for Best First Novel

Named a New York Times Best Thriller of 2021

"I devoured this riveting book through a day of travel...My desire to rush to the end clashed with my desire to savor every word. Who would be the last psychopath standing?” — New York Times Book Review

"Fresh, fast-paced and fiendishly clever! If you love watching true crime and wonder about the psychopaths among us, this is the book for you!" — Lisa Gardner, #1 New York Times bestselling author

You should never trust a psychopath. But what if you had no choice?

It would be easy to underestimate Chloe Sevre… She’s a freshman honor student, a legging-wearing hot girl next door, who also happens to be a psychopath. She spends her time on yogalates, frat parties and plotting to kill Will Bachman, a childhood friend who grievously wronged her. 

Chloe is one of seven students at her DC-based college who are part of an unusual clinical study of psychopaths—students like herself who lack empathy and can’t comprehend emotions like fear or guilt. The study, led by a renowned psychologist, requires them to wear smart watches that track their moods and movements.

When one of the students in the study is found murdered in the psychology building, a dangerous game of cat and mouse begins, and Chloe goes from hunter to prey. As she races to identify the killer and put her own plan for revenge into action, she’ll be forced to decide if she can trust any of her fellow psychopaths—and everybody knows you should never trust a psychopath.

Don't miss Vera Kurian's chilling upcoming novel, A Step Past Darkness, where a group of six teenagers witness something tragic in an abandoned mine, which comes back to haunt them 20 years later.

Disappointing End to Great Book

I really enjoyed this book but found the ending to be disappointing. I suspect the author started writing this book with no clear path to the end and that starts to become apparent around chapter 50, give or take a few.

I loved the humor

I like psychological thrillers. While this one was a little different than what I usually read, it was still really good. A book about psychopaths going to school. It was quirky, and I found myself laughing out loud at times. Worth the read.

Too Many Perspectives

Story bounced around from person to person a little too much for my taste with too many points of view. Didn’t finish. Loved the concept, but fell short for me.
