The malign criminal genius of Roses Are Red is fixing to give Alex a hard time once again. The FBI joins Patterson's dogged cop in a particularly unsettling investigation: two San Francisco joggers have been viciously murdered and are found suspended by their feet, with all the blood drained from their corpses. And when further brutal deaths follow in California and on the East Coast, Alex is forced to contemplate the bizarre possibility of modern-day vampires, although his instincts point him to one of the many sinister religious cults that flourish on the West Coast. Aided by Jamilla Hughes, a streetwise young woman detective from San Francisco, Alex finds that he has to crack not one but two impenetrable mysteries to stop further bloodletting.
Patterson fans expect the extremely concise, page-turning chapters (116 of them here!), along with a reluctance to dawdle over details of his hero's personal life, and both characteristics are firmly back in place. If you can resist reading this one in just a few sittings, you deserve some kind of a thriller reader's medal. --Barry Forshaw, Amazon.co.uk --This text refers to an alternate Hardcover edition.

Violets Are Blue by James Patterson is a gripping story, but not one for kids. Involving murder and vampires it keeps you interested. Read morePublished 3 days ago by K. Nolting

James Patterson is a master of suspense. This book ties up some loose ends dangling from several of Alex Cross's cases. Loose ends he did not know existed. Read morePublished 10 days ago by Rowan

Typical Patterson page Turner. A book you could put down, pick up without looking interest . I highly recommend it.Published 21 days ago by Capt. Jack
The book was ok, but very predictable. Way too much about vampires for my taste. Not nearly as good as the other Alex Cross books. I was glad when I was done.Published 1 month ago by jane dumas
As always James has written in such a way that I couldn't even think about putting the book down. It's great how he can blend every part of the story around Alex Cross.Published 1 month ago by kevin s killough
