For Chicago sociology professor Amelia Emmet, violence was a research topic — until a student she’d never met shot her. Now he’s dead and she’s back on campus, trying to keep up with her class schedule, a growing problem with painkillers, and a question she can’t let go: Why? Enter Nathaniel Barber, a graduate student obsessed with Chicago’s violent history. Assigned as Amelia’s teaching assistant, he’s hoping she’ll approve his dissertation topic: the student attack on Amelia Emmet.
