About this title

Synopsis:

Twenty years after a young woman is killed in their midst during a wild Halloween party at college, a circle of friends living in Cleveland falls prey to a brilliant serial killer hot for revenge.

Review:

Richard Montanari combines some unusual ingredients (the ethnic sociology of Cleveland, Ohio; the poetry of T.S. Eliot; the eccentricities of e-mail and chat rooms) with some of the more familiar elements of genre fiction (the hungry journalist who lucks into a good story; a series of current crimes linked to an old atrocity) to excellent effect in The Violet Hour. Writer Nicky Stella--beseiged by debts and responsibilities of his own--tries to save his career by finding out why poetry students who went to a party at Case Western Reserve University 20 years ago are suddenly dying in very nasty ways. With its ecclectic mixture of new technologies and classic mystery plotting, The Violet Hour is a sleek and dark story of delayed revenge. Montanari's equally chilling, well-received first thriller, Deviant Way, is available in paperback. --Dick Adler
