Empathy for a Killer by Sarah Masters


Finding a killer isn’t easy, but someone’s got to do it…

Detective Burgess Varley is called out to view a dead body. It isn’t one of the best things about his job—but putting killers away for the rest of their lives? Now that’s one of the best. Problem is, the victim has something in her mouth that has always scared Burgess—something that links him to the killer without him even knowing it. And that link is more than Burgess might be able to handle.

Detective Shaw Peters, Burgess’ partner for several years, loves Burgess in ways he perhaps shouldn’t. Or ways that Burgess won’t accept, anyway. But Shaw isn’t one to back down from a challenge, and as well as being by Burgess’ side on the hunt for a killer, he has his own mission to accomplish—getting Burgess to admit they’re meant for each other. It won’t be easy, but by God, he’s going to give it a try.

With Burgess and the killer learning things about themselves, their lives, and each other that they previously hadn’t known, life—and death—is about to become serious.

Shaw and Burgess are police partners. Shaw wants more out of the relationship, however, if this book was supposed to be deemed a romance, as well as a mystery/thriller, then it failed. This book was purely thriller.

This was a twisted, totally engrossing story. You watch the killer go through different phases, flashbacks, and come to the realization of who he is. Throughout his journey, you see how difficult his life had been.

Then you have Burgess. He had a difficult time growing up, but for a very different reason. While he's trying to figure out who this person is, he has to face his own past and demons.

Coming together, the killer and Burgess have to understand each other and because of that, they develop a sense of togetherness.

Masters wrote a well-developed murder – who done it story – that, while somewhat predictable, was very entertaining.
