“Let’s be honest: Who hasn’t fantasized about shooting someone in the face with a hunting rifle? … Every day I look a murderer in the eye. There she is, through the looking glass.” A thirteen-year-old girl accidentally kills her classmate and discovers she has a taste for it.

Her face is her best alibi and she leaves every crime scene flawless. As she sleepwalks through her day job, one thing becomes increasingly clear: she needs more…
Revenge is sweet.
