Another fantastic read from Patterson, I cannot get enough of the Alex Cross series. The entire series is fraught with betrayal, fear, suspense, love and good old detective work from the dragon slayer himself.
Violets are Blue follows on from Roses are Red which ends on a huge cliffhanger, thankfully Violets are Blue makes sure all questions from the previous book are answered in true Patterson style.
The book also focuses on a spate of horrific killings, the victims are found hung upside down and drained of all blood. Cross isn’t a believer of vampires but after this case he just might be. Alex Cross is left feeling burnt out and miserable after the last case and so feels under immense stress to solve this case as fast as possible.
I cannot really say much more about the book without giving too much away so I will have to leave it there. Other than to say Detective Alex Cross is fast becoming my favorite male hero of all time, and I would recommend reading this series to anyone and everyone.
