My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Holy hell this book was fun! Set within the old-boys-club world of academia, They Never Learn is unsettling, smart and absolutely riveting.

Scarlett is an English professor who murders men who abuse and/or rape women for sport. But when the college decides to investigate the growing body count and she loses control with her most recent victim, she has to avoid detection and keep her secret life, secret. Meanwhile, Carly, a first-year college student, becomes obsessed with making her best friend’s sexual attacker pay.

As a protagonist, Scarlett definitely toes the line between vigilante and sociopath. I don’t think she’s exactly a vigilante because there’s no question that she doesn’t give a single care at all that she’s murdering people. But equally, I don’t think she’s actually a sociopath. She was capable of love and worrying about people other than herself, and not just in a how-will-it-affect-me sort of way. But that juxtaposition, Scarlett’s flaws and her back story, make her all the more intriguing.

Dark and twisted with a snarky, feminist serial killer protagonist. It’s everything I wanted and didn’t even know I needed. For fans of My Lovely Wife and Killing Eve, They Never Learn is full of feminist rage, hot lesbian sex, and sharp, edgy prose with a breathless ending and characters you’ll feel like you know!
