Overview

Jillian Talbot seems to have everything: a lovely home in Greenwich Village, a small circle of close friends, a handsome and passionate lover who has just proposed to her, and a glamorous career as a bestselling author of suspense novels. Her writing has captivated thousands of fans, but she has always been safe from the terrifying scenes she creates. Until now. Somewhere in the shadows of New York City, someone is watching her. He knows her every move, her every fear, almost before she knows it herself. He is as devoted as a lover, courting her in his own mysterious way - leaving notes in her mailbox, gifts on her doorstep, messages on her answering machine. His motives are as cryptic as the name he goes by: Valentine. But his intentions are deadly clear. For Jill Talbot, the terror has just begun. Wherever she runs, he will find her. And soon she will meet him on his terrible day of judgment. His triumphant day. Her darkest day. Valentine's Day.

    Disturbing But Plausible

    'Valentine' shows the danger of fooling with those you don't know anything about. Victor Di Morta was already scarred psychologically when he reached Hartley college what should have been a breakthrough for him turns to trauma when a group of girls play a cruel prank on him made crueler by the fact he is already disturbed at the hands of abusive parents. 'Valentine' is an excellent character study of this perpetrator and his attackers. I felt DiMorta was perfectly justified in doing what he did, especially to Sharon Williams, and I thought the murdering of his parents was deserved. One sympathizes with all the characters throughout, but DiMorta is the most compelling, the kind of sympathetic perpetrator one would think of Ethan Black having created. Forget the 'Valentine' movie. This is the real thing and the story that should have been filmed. Remember at the start of 'Baby Jane' when the child Blanche looks into the camera and says 'I won't forget. You BET I won't forget.' This is the story of one who lives by that principle.

    This gives a feeling to suspense.

    The ending was one of the best i've seen in a long time. Tom Savage actually fullfilled what mystery and suspense should be in fiction.

    Holds Up Amazingly Well

    I first read 'Valentine' about seven years ago, when I found it in a bin at work. The title and author were unknown to me at the time and the book impressed me on an initial reading. I am happy to say it still does; on a reread I'd found there were still some details that eluded me, but even knowing as much as I did, Savage's skills at characterization and plot development make the story compelling. What is essentially an ordinary stalker story is made fresh and exciting. And without spoiling anything, what makes the book interesting is how Savage objectifies everyone's motives--even the killer's in the book--so one knows why everyone behaves as they do, and as a result a little compassion for each is generated. Itis a shame the movie did not film Savage's story as is, for it is far superior to what was presented onscreen. If your knowledge of the movie has kept you from reading the book don't let it; 'Valentine' is worth the experience.

    VALENTINE: the best book

    I really loved the book. Couldn't put it down. In facted I am reading it again right now. I just love how you think this person is the one who did it, but then you find out it was another person. I went and watched the movie when it came out in theaters. I liked it. It had the same suspense as the book. But the book was better. I think that all people who like suspense should read this book.

    Who's the Real Victim?

    I made the tremendous mistake of going to see the movie 'based' on this novel by Warner Bros. instead of reading the book first. The real victim of the movie is the book. They butchered it! If people don't read the book, they'll never realize what a great suspenseful plot and characters the movie could have had. I'm bad, I skipped to the end to see exactly what was going on, but I was still constantly asking 'how' did the culprit manage to do the things he did. A really engrossing read.

    Busboy who loves the WWF & now has a goal of reading every book by Tom Savage after reading the most incredible book ever: VALENTINE June 11, 2001

    When I saw the cover of the book, it looked like a stupid romance book. I later saw the movie & I remember on the cover it said 'Now a major motion picture.' I then new this was a book for me because it had all the right stuff: mystery, suspence, worry, romance. The ending will absolutely blow you away. From what I've read on the internet, Tom is a wonderful writer, but he needs to write more books. Don't miss the chilling movie (one of the best movies ,but it has a different plot than the book & it is not even near as good as the book.) & you definately can't miss the book.

    I was shocked at the ending

    I can ALWAYS figure out whodunit, except in the case of Tom Savage's books. This is the first of two that I read in one weekend and I was fooled by the ending in both this book and Scavenger. I could not stop reading Valentine until it was finished and then immediately went to Scavenger. I'm only sorry I could not find more Tom Savage books. I can't wait to get caught up with him and then I will be in agony until the next one comes out. Like all great suspense writers, he doesn't churn these out like Harliquen Romances -- there is some actual thought that goes into the writing. I'm just blown away!

    It Was Wonderful

    I have never read a book as thrilling as this one. I couldn't put it down. I finished it exactly on Valentine's Day. I would recommend it to anyone who loves to be thrilled and kept in suspense to the very end.
