A murder has Seattle on edge, and it falls to a pacifist empath—and a notorious empath hunter—to find the killer before it’s too late

It’s the middle of the night when part-time police consultant and full-time empath Reece gets an anonymous call warning him that his detective sister needs his help. At an out-of-the-way Seattle marina, he discovers that three people have been butchered—including the author of the country’s strictest anti-empathy bill, which is just days from being passed into law.

Soon, Reece’s caller arrives: a shadowy government agent known as The Dead Man, who is rumored to deal exclusively in cases involving empathy. He immediately takes over the investigation, locking out both local PD and the FBI, but, strangely, keeps Reece by his side.

As the two track an ever-growing trail of violence and destruction across Seattle, Reece must navigate a scared and angry city, an irritating attraction to his mysterious agent companion, and a rising fear that perhaps empaths like him aren’t all flight and no fight after all…

Mystery & urban fantasy blend with slow-burn enemies-to-lovers romance in a new trilogy from Allie Therin. Liar City is a twisty, banter-filled mystery that stars a a violence-averse empath one R-rated movie away from a nervous breakdown.

Tadhg:

After a nasty breakup with my manipulative ex, I returned home to Seattle to lick my wounds. I’m done with relationships. From now on I’m focusing on my career.

There are just a few problems with this.

One, it’s not that easy for a Deaf man to succeed in a Hearing world, even with the right degree and experience.

Two, Quinn MacDougall. He’s my co-worker. He’s also incredibly talented, driven, and distractingly handsome.

Three, he’s hearing. And that’s the biggest problem of all. Can someone who isn’t Deaf ever truly understand and accept me?

***

Quinn:

Nothing is more important to me than family, and someday I’ll have my own. Well, I will, If I can ever find the right guy. Sadly, I can’t seem to make family and romance mesh. So for now, I’m concentrating on my career and getting a promotion at work. That is until my company hires a hot-shot architect with all the right credentials to easily snag the position.

I should resent him, but Tadhg Byrne is supremely talented and incredibly sweet. He’s also drop-dead gorgeous. And even though we have a ton in common I can’t ask him out. Why? We work together, and that’s just a disaster waiting to happen.

Plus, there’s the communication issue. He’s Deaf, my ASL is rusty as hell, and he’s just been through a really bad breakup. How could I possibly convince him to take a chance again with me?

Excerpt

To say it had surprised me to see the hot guy from the coffee shop at my new job is an understatement. Quinn. His name is Quinn. And he’s adorable. Wait, no. He isn’t adorable. The way he’d concentrated on signing had been adorable. Okay, not adorable. It had been nice. Or fine, even. Yeah, definitely just fine.

And there’s nothing wrong with professional interest. Which obviously is all this is. My heart is racing because of first-day nerves. That’s totally understandable and has nothing to do with the almost frightening level of attraction I’m feeling.

Fuck. Fuck fuck fuck. Fine. He’s attractive. But under no circumstances will I do anything about it. I don’t need that complication. No hookups, no dating, no relationship. I’m fine just as things are. Plus Quinn doesn’t know ASL. Okay, he seems to know the basics, but I have no interest in playing instructor. Not with ASL, anyway. Wait! Jesus, what is wrong with me? Even thinking about that with a coworker, especially one I just met, is supremely stupid.

I watch Quinn leave and remind myself he’s a distraction, no matter how hot he is. But damn, Quinn MacDougall is very hot. In fact, he ticks all my boxes. Tall? Check. He’s at least six-feet. Blue eyes? Check. They are a beautiful deep blue, and I could lose myself in their velvety depths. Even his dark red hair and smattering of freckles work for me. And Fit? Dear god, check. Quinn has the broad chest, back, and seriously wide shoulders of a swimmer. I’ll bet he’s a breaststroke man. I very purposely do not imagine him in a competition speedo. Walking around the office with a hard-on would not be a good idea.
