Overrated by the Author
Paterson spent several minutes at the beginning of this audio book tell us how good the book is. Clearly he did not listen to it.
It is bloody for the sake of being bloody. It has ?Police Activities? that make no sense, such as, exhuming a body to look at it, then doing nothing else with it. The protagonist is utterly unbelievable, though the crimes are only partially so.
All in all it is not a book to bother with.

Narration a Disappointment
Admittedly I've not read/listened to the Alex Cross books in chronological order. That being said by the time I started listening to Violets are Blue Alex Cross had become embodied by Peter J Fernandez. Violets is a sequel to Roses are Red narrated by Peter. To go from Roses to Violets is a disappointment. The person voicing Alex Cross while having a dramatic voice, reads much too quickly for Alex. Alex does nothing quickly he's a thinker and doesn't give away much. This narrator seems to be in a hurry to get the story over with. The story is the culmination of the Alex Cross/Kyle Craig story line begun in Roses are Red, it would have been served the story best to keep the same narrator.
