Forty-nine-year-old Violet Ramspeck is the envy of the Upper East Side. Wealthy, witty, and childless, she harbors secrets of self-destruction, devoting all of her time to others as an artistic socialite turned trophy wife.
Without warning, Violet discovers her adoring husband of twenty-four years is having an affair with a twenty-three-year-old bartender who is an exact, younger replica of Violet. Upon learning of his plans for divorce, Violet's inner sanctum deteriorates as she morphs into a sadistic captor of the strong-willed, millennial mistress she keeps naked in the basement of her expansive townhome.
Meanwhile, Violet's prisoner--Allegra Adams--spends every waking moment trying to escape her luxurious prison. She soon discovers her mental games prove more effective than her physical attempts to run, challenging everything Violet has ever known about her husband, her values, and her sanity.
The epic struggle between two flawed women fighting over the same man is profound.
Lovers of Grimm's fairy tales will enjoy this suspense-filled, action-packed battle of two minds. With unforeseen twists and turns, the shocking twist ending will have you talking about VIOLETS ARE RED for years to come.
