Description

“Let's be honest: Who hasn't fantasized about shooting someone in the face with a hunting rifle?”

One day, a thirteen-year-old girl decides to startle a classmate. Instead, she accidentally kills him.

And she likes it.

Over the years, she begins experimenting with murder. Her victims are, of course, people that deserve it: a careless driver, a CEO of an energy corporation that is destroying the planet, a rapist. Every crime scene is flawless — untraceable and made to look like an accident or suicide. But, as she sleepwalks through her day job and lives in a crummy apartment, one thing becomes increasingly clear: she needs more.

Because nothing compares to the thrill of violent retribution.

Editorial Reviews

A chilling justification of a life of violence, as nonchalant as it is grim.

— Kirkus Reviews

Kurtness writes smoothly … Readers into passive-aggressive fantasies will best appreciate this one. 

— Publishers Weekly

This chiseled writing, this extraordinary character and this particular humour may seduce the most difficult reader

— Le Devoir
