Emily Burton has boundary issues.
A powerful psychic empath, she feels the emotions of everyone around her as if they are her own… and it’s driving her mad. In a last-ditch effort to overwhelm her empathic senses, she flees small-town Wisconsin for Manhattan. There she’ll give her true self a week to emerge from the chaos. If that doesn’t work there’s always her father’s gun.
Emily’s plan is simple enough—she just doesn’t count on falling in love. Tumbled into a growing romance with a handsome young man, her edges begin to come into focus. But all under the shadow of terror. A madman stalks the city, wielding his victims’ worst fears like a knife. The media call him the Phobia Killer and now he wants Emily.
Emily Burton plunges into a labyrinth of humanity where she’ll either find herself, her life and her love, or the monster and death.
Praise for EMPATHY by readers like you:
"I loved this book: the plot, the characters, and especially the writing which was wonderful. Mr. Richmond writes beautifully and I found myself time and again noting a particular description or adjective or turn of phrase for its artistry. After I read it, I bought one for my daughter, and then another for my mother, and now my best friend's birthday is around the corner. . . I read at least a book a week, commonly mysteries, and this was better than many, many others I've bought. Very enjoyable; I read it quickly. I hope you enjoy it too. And I hope he publishes his next one soon because I'm waiting for it." --GD
