Through Violet Eyes is the first science-fiction alternate history novel by Stephen Woodworth featuring the "Violet" detective Natalie Lindstrom. It was written in 2004.

Plot summary[edit]

The novel is set in an alternate present-day setting where a small percentage of people are born with violet irises and the ability to channel the dead. The government has stepped in and regulated their lives, using them as tools in murder trials. When it becomes clear that a serial killer is targeting the Violets themselves, FBI agent Dan Atwater is paired with Natalie Lindstrom, a Violet, to investigate. Moments after dying, the victims take over Natalie's consciousness, bringing their tale of the Faceless Man who killed them and their suspicion that he may be working with someone on the other side.[1]
