Bloody Valentine is a very short (122 pages) murder mystery in the Quick Reads series by James Patterson. Valentine's Day, and mega-rich restaurant owner, Jack Barnes, is planning to take his pregnant wife away for a weekend. But before they can even meet for lunch, Jack receives an exquisitely wrapped but shocking gift that will change his life. The story follows the movements of Jack, his wife, Zee, and the cruel and clever killer as the violent murder is planned and carried out. Inspector Amy Stuart and Sergeant Ben Miller (possible characters for a later novel?) set out to solve the Bloody Valentine. Set in London, this is essentially a locked-room mystery, and, perhaps because it has not been co-written with another author, it is quite good for a very short read.

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.
