D.C. Detective Alex Cross has seen a lot of crime scenes. But even he is appalled by the gruesome murders of two joggers in San Francisco's Golden Gate Park, killings that look more like the work of savage beasts than humans. Local police are horrified and even the FBI is baffled. Then, as Cross is called in to take on the case, the carnage takes off, leaving a trail of bodies across America and sweeping him to Savannah, Las Vegas, New Orleans, Los Angeles ... as his nemesis, the merciless criminal known as the Mastermind, stalks him, taunts him, and, once again, threatens everything he holds dear.… (more)

I really enjoyed this book. I read it on our trip for the holidays. Another page turner. Was wondering the whole time when Alex would find out who the Mastermind was. Ready to read the next one. ( )

This was not one of my favorite books in the Alex Cross series. I found it too wordy and drawn out. ( )

it just keeps getting better. Each Alex Cross book is better than the last. I love it! ( )

Lorna got it at fenlon books. Vampires? Really? not a great book. ( )

Violets Are Blue follows directly on from Roses Are Red's lightning bolt ending where the identity of the Mastermind was, perhaps, revealed depending upon how you interpreted the final lines of the book.

Pleasingly, the answer isn't simply revealed here, instead the truth is danced around, and what would appear to be contrary evidence to the answer is presented, whilst also confirming evidence giving credence to the potential identity of the Mastermind is also presented. It's quite a compelling story arc, all the while there is a pair of vampire emulating killers on the loose across the country killing numerous people in a graphic depraved manner.

After this crime is solved, the story the returns to the Mastermind arc where after tying into several events & points of previous books the identity is revealed in a climatic and satisfying ending. ( )
