Miki Radicci, a 16-year-old famous artist, leads a secluded life in New York City. Not that she wants to dodge the press and celebrity; she wants to avoid people all together since she has the psychic ability to experience other people’s physical and emotional pain when near them. It gets so bad for her to handle that not even Xanax and alcohol can relieve the pain. When she accidentally experiences the murder of a prominent business student from NYU, Miki attracts the attention of the police and the killer who threatens her and her family. But Miki doesn't really know enough to identify the killer. She experiences the death but can't see his face. Miki decides to learn as much as she can about the killer by delving into the victim's secret life. She follows an urban underground trail that leads to goth modeling, a snuff internet site, and low level criminals. As she discovers the limits to her psychic talents and her ballsy actions, she realizes that the killer is not who she thinks it is, but rather someone close to her life. A Black Deeper than Death is a YA urban noir fantasy and also a start of a series.
