WITH RED HANDS

WITH RED HANDS is Stephen Woodworth's exciting sequel to THROUGH VIOLET EYES. In the previous book the reader met the Violets, a gifted group of people born with violet eyes and the ability to channel the souls of the dead.
In WITH RED HANDS a character from the previous novel, Natalie Lindstrom, has decided after her previous struggle with a serial killer, to leave the government sponsored group and raise her five-year-old daughter on her own.
Natalie has chosen to make her living channeling for the public and keep her life as private as possible. She soon finds this may be impossible when a well known murder case comes to trial and it appears that the violet the government has put on the witness stand is lying.
This is something that was before thought impossible. Natalie is asked to help determine if lies are being told and how that is possible.
Winding through the story is the story of Natalie's youth, her mother's insanity and the reappearance of "The Thrasher," a serial killer who was executed on her mother's testimony but who seemingly drove her to be institutionalized.
I liked the first book, THROUGH VIOLET EYES and I loved WITH RED HANDS. Stephen Woodworth has created characters that this reader likes and wants to know more about. Please bring on the next book featuring the violets.
