This year Valentine's Day isn't for romance. It's for murder.

Mega rich restaurant owner Jack Barnes and his second wife Zee are very much in love. However, their plans for Valentine's Day are about to be torn apart by the most violent murder.

Who is the strange figure plotting this sick crime? Who hates Jack that much? There are plenty of suspects living in Jack's fancy block of flats. Is it them, or could it be the work of an outsider with a twisted mind? One thing's for sure, the police have got their work cut out solving this bloody mess.

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Marilyn | 2/18/2014

    " Quick read. Not as good as some of his other books. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Cláudia | 2/16/2014

    " This is a quick read, perfect for a plane journey from London to Lisbon :) The story is gory enough, it keeps us interested for the 120 pages, no special surprises but there was no time for it :) "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Lushbug | 2/15/2014

    " A predictable short story by Patterson. The ending didn't really make Any sense and the blurb' murder isn't murder if its necessary' has no relevance to the story. The gruesomeness of the murder didn't make sense either.odd stuff! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rhys O'shea | 2/14/2014

    " Knocked it off in one night (in fact, finished about 15 minutes ago)I bought it for Mum from bookdeposity seeing as she almost exclusively reads James Patterson but when i saw it was little I thought I'd give ti a read. 2 hours later and I was finish and now hooked, each chapter is left on a cliff-hanger which, well, enough of it is answered straight away to not keep you going "COME ON!!!" but enough is left unanswered to just keep you wondering who or raise more suspicion. Mum said that all his novels are like this and I certainly will be reading more of his once my HSC is done with. Keep me guessing until the last chapter (I usually get them early) but I changed who several times. Almost like a sprint read, so much fun to read in one night. Adds a bit of spice to normal reading. "

    " I'm not a big reader, but trying to get into books more this year. So this was great as it only took a couple of hours to finish. It kept me interested, and I enjoyed it, the ending was a bit quick, but overall, an enjoyable read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Brooke | 1/20/2014

    " Meh, an ok short read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sian | 1/20/2014

    " Really enjoyed it. Would've liked it more if it was a thicker novel as with the rest of James Patterson. James Patterson is one of the best writers out there "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Siobhan O' Sullivan | 1/20/2014

    " it was alright! I wouldn't read it again "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Monika | 1/19/2014

    " As usual James Patterson doesn't disappoint with 'Bloody Valentine'. A thrilling murder mystery of the best kind, this quick read will have you riveted until the very last page. I just wish it could be a bit longer. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Rachael Clark | 12/30/2013

    " Easily predicted and ended too abruptly "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Marie Boland | 12/23/2013

    " excellent great quick read for a train journey "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nancy | 12/2/2013

    " A good little murder mystery story. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Donna | 11/29/2013

    " Nice way to pass a little time. It's only 81 pages, so it just moves quickly along, throwig in a gory bit that causes seasoned cops to fear nightmares. If you're a horror movie fan, I think your imagination will fill things in nicely. Enjoy! It's definitely a winner! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jillian | 11/14/2013

    " James Patterson always manages to deliver interesting intense thrillers and this was no exception. For a quick read it was riveting. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Helen | 7/28/2013

    " I should have know it would be gore-ily unpleasant when I spotted the warning at the front of my e-book. A disturbed mind imagines this! Still, quite gripping and a page turner. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Melanie | 5/29/2013

    " Short story....it was pretty good for the length!! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Susan Huckabay | 3/3/2013

    " Really short for a Patterson book. A good afternoon read, but bloody as title indicates "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tanya | 11/17/2012

    " Was a short story for a James Patterson book, but it was an amazing story. Loved it! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Terrie | 10/14/2012

    " Bloody Valentine is a fast paced Whodunnit Mystery which keeps you guessing until the end. Although very short, I found this a compelling read with an interesting story line albeit a bit gory and gruesome in places. It's the first James Patterson book I've read, but it definitely won't be the last. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sarah | 9/1/2012

    " short and sweet read it in an afternoon as couldnt put it down "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Samantha | 8/25/2012

    " This book was a nice easy read but by no way one of his best book. But then again can you really expect to have brilliant read out of 122 pages? It's ok if you are bored n need to take up an hour or two. N that is what I did for me. "

    " It was a very quick read! It was a great story, but would have liked it better if it were a longer story. I figured out who was guilty for the very start, but was suprised as to why! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nick Gilbert | 6/19/2012

    " Very short(INTENTIONALLY SO) but a GREAT read! "

    " I only picked up this JP as it was one of the Quick Reads as I have to admit I have gone of his books of late (no where near as good as the original Alex Cross ones) but this was OK. Fast paced and kept you guessing - read it in a couple of hours. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Michelle | 11/5/2011

    " If you want a quick read it is fine - I had finished it on a 2 hour plane journey. I was disappointed as I have enjoyed his other books. "
