The premise of the book is that one of the protagonist’s is a serial killer of men who abuse or sexually assault women. The protagonist and several other characters have experienced sexual assault themselves. Several professors in the university where this book takes place have sexual relationships with their students. One of the main characters is drugged and assaulted. Aside from the trauma of sexual assault itself, there is also a great deal of rape apologia in the book. This apologia clearly identified as morally wrong, but it could still be hard to hear for some audiences.
