I'm grateful to the Great American Read for enticing me to start reading the Alex Cross series Cat and Mouse is the 4th book in the series and I'm officially hooked I like the characters and the plots are suspenseful and engrossing Cross' nemesis serial killer Gary Soneji returns in Cat and Mouse Soneji is bound and determined to kill Detective Alex Cross once and for allbut he's going to do it his waythe violent and crazy way While Cross and his partner John Sampson are chasing after Soneji another killer is playing games with the FBI Mr Smith is diabolical and extremely savage in his killings He tortures people to death with the preciseness of a surgeon The two cases come together with a violent clashing of killing styles leaving both Cross and Sampson reeling This book has plenty of action investigation and surprises I kept thinking I had it figured outonly to have the plot take another twist leaving me guessing again Very enjoyable story This series does seem to have it out for any woman that Alex Cross shows interest in howeverthat particular plot device is getting a bit old after 4 books But I like this seriesand I'm willing to overlook a relatively small annoyance My favorite character by far is Nana Mama She's in her 80's and feisty but she loves her family And she gives some great advice Cross' partner John Sampson is a great supporting character I also enjoy Cross' kids Janie and Damon They are wise and love their daddy I listened to the audio book version of Cat and Mouse The particular audio book my library offered is narrated by Jeff Harding His reading is okhe reads at a nice pace and all that ButI found his voice annoying and his attempts at accents to be less than stellar Why would a publisher hire a white actor to voice a black main character I much preferred the previous Alex Cross audio book I listened to narrated by Ron Butler Harding's attempts at the voices of Cross and Sampson were ridiculous If the main character in a novel is black then PLEASE hire a black actor to narrate the audio book I was constantly pulled out of the story by the really bad attempts on Jeff Harding's part to sound blackjust bad I hope the next few audio books the library has are read by Ron Butler or similar actors So much enjoyable So the book is excellent This audio book could have been much better with a different narrator On to the next book The Alex Cross series has 25 bookswith #26 coming in Nov 2018 I have a lot of reading and listening to do

Review Cat Mouse

Cat MouseVictims so insane so unimaginable that he is thought of as not of the earth Pierce known in the business as St Augustine because of his track record for catching killers and his invaluable status to the FBI and Interpol may even be better than CrossWhen things heat up and Alex is in a near death coma following an attack in his own home Pierce goes to Washington to help with the investigation But just as he begins. Wow I can't believe I used to like this book All of the things I came to hate about the later books of the series are actually WORSE in this book I have tried to keep spoilers to details to they won't ruin the plot Also fair warning a lot of this review is a CP of the first Cross book since a lot of my issues are the same1 The fact that Patterson spends half the book writing about how evil white people are drives me nuts Keep in mind that Patterson was a 46 yo married wealthy while male from Palm Beach FL writing about what it's like to be a 38 yo single father living in a crime ridden poor neighborhood in DC Really If it were only Patterson's apparent self hatred I would just feel pity for him However he managed to repeatedly glorify reverse racism while fitting in racist cliches than I ever would have thought possible Check out how many times fried chicken and ribs shows up in the first three four books Also Alex's obsession with white women To say nothing of the language and the discussions of the man slavery and why the blues is the only good music ever created Oh and every white cop is an A2 SPOILER ALERT Plot issues Despite repeated conversations about jurisdictional arguments and police being territorial Cross again jumps jurisdictions like they don't exist There isn't even a lame FBI excuse this time Why does every evil serial killer criminal in the world have the hots for Cross Granted he's a sexy black man it's not racist 'cause the book says so but seriously he hasn't caught THAT many bad guys at this point in the series and yet they ALL come looking for him The FBI KNEW who Smith was and let him keep running around Okay if you want hard and fast proof fine But when you KNOW who he's chasing for his next victim maybe put the guy under surveillance The reasons for suspecting Mr Smith's identity are weak Eually weak is the discovery as to how he choses his victims And the ending And basically the whole Mr Smith plot Had Patterson just stuck with arch nemesis escapes from jail again he might have had something another BatmanJoker rip off anyways Instead he adds in a second unnecessary killer and it drags on and on and on and3 Cross is revoltingly perfect He balances family women and job perfectly He never gets angry with his kidsNana or they with him He is gorgeous and impervious to beatings shootings etc sorry I already forget which violence took place in which book In this book he is firebombed and never missed a beat or becomes less attractiveHe has NO issues what so ever except for the occasional oh ya and I miss my wife Another reader said this but I must take the time to agree why does every characters have to have crappy relationships Cross comes from a broken home himself and is a single dad due to a murdered wife His love interest has a broken home and everyone around her died of cancer4 Cross' women While this one manages to avoid death or maiming this is apparently because she was attacked her husband killed and she was held hostage in book #3 Which continues the women exist only to cause Alex pain series Man Alex Cross has it worse than Batman Also this is 33 on the description of Alex hasn't felt this close to a woman since his wife died Except for Jezzie And Kate And the next 3 women he hooks up with But congrats to this one for lasting than one book5 I hate the writing style The tendency to go from first person to third person and MANY third persons at that drive me tweaky Pick one I also don't like the short abrupt chapters that appear to do no than lengthen the book Also

Cat Mouse Summary ´ 2 Â Alex Cross is back and so is a raging and suicidal Gary Soneji Out of prison and dying from the AIDS virus he contracted there he will get revenge on Cross before he dies In addition we are introduced to a new pair of rivals whose paths cross that of Alex and Soneji Thomas Augustine Pierce has been chasing his demon Mr Smith since the To piece together the mystery of how Gary Soneji could have mortally wounded Cross after he was believed to be dead he is summoned to Paris with a postcard from Mr Smith inviting him to a very special killingThe body count is high the tension the highest and the two killers on the loose are watching every move their pursuers make Who is the cat and who is the mouse What and where is the final trap And who survive. I usually find James Patterson a bit ho hum but there is nothing ho hum about Cat and Mouse Alex is once again faced with two psychopaths but this time round they are both masters of the macabre The violence held within is pretty graphic so let your watch word be take careThe things the alpha villain Mr Smith does are particularly gross Who'd want to be a medical examiner Not me There really is a lot going on so there is no time get bored let alone make a cup of coffee This time round author James Patterson decides to show us that Alex Cross is not infallible after all Alex is brutally beaten and shot in his own bedroom The pace is fast and unrelenting and the murders are for the most part pretty grossA few small criticism Mr Smith is revealed just a bit too early for my liking There is no humour The end could have been better and the dialogue between Alex and his loving family and Alex's love interest is still really cringe worthyBut for all that the book deserved 4 stars
