In this nightmarish tale, a third-rate detective is faced with an impossible crime, as bodies are turning up without their brains and without any indication of how the organs were removed. His only lead - an attractive landlady - becomes more than a lead and drives him into a world of terror, where his sanity is questioned and he must stop the monster before she does more evil. Or should he join her? Does he even have a choice, or will he just be driven by terror?

"This engrossing genre bender combines police procedural, male romantic suspense, science fiction, and/or fantasy, nourish pursuit thriller, and gross-out horror story." (Ellery Queen's Mystery Magazine)
"This is no book for the squeamish, since it describes horrific procedures, steamy sex, and some pretty out there occult beliefs. That said, Empties can be a fascinating adventure for mystery fans who like a dash of weirdness with their murders." (Mystery Scene)
