Reviewer: Anne K. Edwards
A tale that reaches deep inside the reader to evoke emotions you'd rather not deal with. A story that could have been taken from the front pages of the newspaper in any large city. Katherine McDonald works in a field where most who choose it as a career suffer quick burnout, that of dealing with abused children, those who are lost to society before they are teens. Someone is murdering boys who seem to have no one to care about them, and the murderer wants Katherine to know it is her fault they die. A mystery with horror woven into the pattern by a very talented author, Cynthia Webb, The Color of Emptiness will keep you reading, hoping somehow the innocence of childhood can be restored. Highly recommended as a read you won't soon forget, a story that is a social commentary on throwaway kids andthe system that tries to deal with the problem. A story that will make you want to weep.
