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.

Worth a read. Ending wasn’t great but instill enjoyed it.

Odd premise, good page turner

The premise of this books is truly strange; a professor recruits psychopaths to college in order for them to participate in a study he is conducting. The book moves among the perspectives of three main characters, Andre, Charles and Chloe; they are well-developed and it’s interesting how they describe each other. The other characters in the book aren’t as fully fleshed out and I had a hard time differentiating between Emma and Elena; couldn’t the author have chosen names that weren’t so similar?!
The book kept my attention very well and I am impressed this is the author’s first book; I look forward to reading what she writes next.

Just awful!

The DSM (Diagnostic and Statistical Manual) should never be allowed in the hands of a fiction writer. This drivel is the unfortunate result. Save your time. Take a hard pass on this fantasy.
