Detective Alex Cross has never believed in vampires. But when two joggers are found slain in a manner that suggests a macabre ritual, he has to reconsider. Someone believes in vampires enough to have committed a series of bizarre murders that appear to be the work of one. Local police are horrified, and even the FBI is baffled. Cross takes on the case and plunges into a netherworld of secret clubs and role-players, a world full of poseurs and playactors—and someone demented enough to have crossed the line from dark ritual to real blood. At the same time, a lethal super-criminal from Cross’ past—known as the Mastermind—is stalking him, taunting him, and threatening everything he holds dear. Cross has never been closer to defeat, or in greater danger. In a shocking conclusion, Alex Cross must survive a deadly confrontation—only to discover at last the awful secret of the Mastermind.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Particularly juicy...Enjoyably spooky...Bottom line: bloody good creepfest.” People
“Another page-turner...You won’t be able to put ‘Violets’ down until you’ve reached the back cover.” New York Times
“As exciting as anything Patterson has written.” Publishers Weekly
“Patterson is first-rate as he explores the shadowy world of American vampires, fetishists, cults, tattoo parlors, and the prosthetic fang business...Daniel Whitner performs Cross, and Kevin O’Rourke plays all the villains. Both are accomplished readers. Whitner has Cross...down pat, while O’Rourke does a chilling job of creating the Mastermind and the two beautiful psychopaths who play with tigers.” AudioFile
“Fans of James Patterson’s resourceful cop Alex Cross will be relieved to find that he’s back on familiar territory with Violets Are Blue—and, more importantly, that this is one of the best Alex Cross thrillers yet...If you can resist reading this one in just a few sittings, you deserve some kind of a thriller reader’s medal.” Amazon.com, editorial review
“Taut, fast-paced, and leavened with Patterson’s dark sense of humor, Violets Are Blue is a wickedly entertaining read, an old-fashioned story about the powers of good and evil. Mark another notch on Patterson’s belt: This book puts the thrill in thriller.” Barnes & Noble, editorial review
