Cat MouseAlex 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 savage murder of his fiancee Mr Smith is a uniue monster with actions toward his. It was amazing to return to the corrupt and thrilling world where the policeman psychologist and all around great family man Alex Cross tries to solve insanely complex homicide cases Although often extremely violent and upsetting dealing with the darkest sides of what crimes humans can commit I love reading this series and the majority of the entries are highly addictive Like the other books this is a complete standalone novel although extra layers are added if they are visited consecutively in the correct order If you are new to Patterson's series or like me read my last entry 6 months ago and am now returning to the brutal environment of Washington DC hints and reminders are given regarding past events so the context and past actions are provided without ever dumbing it down too much for the die hard readers To uickly summarise the tale is about 2 world class killers operating an ocean apart One being Gary Soneji infamous murderer and kidnapper from Along Came A Spider and the Jack The Ripper esue Mr Smith who journalists have referred to as an alien Trains and cellars are freuently mentioned regarding Soneji's troubled youth and what is worse is that this genius psychopath after escaping prison now has nothing to lose As for Mr Smith we know nothing about him he is only referred to in passing for the first half of the narrativeAs usual readers follow Alex's 1st person perspective for the majority however other viewpoints such as those of trusted partner Detective John Sampson and the killer Gary Soneji are presented in the 3rd person As the previous books I like the use of this device and I think it works admirably well At all points the reader knows than Alex and I find it intriguing to see how he deduces minute details gets into the minds of a monster and then hopefully solves the crimes In the 3rd uarter of the book Alex is out of action for parts so for the first time in the series another character is entitled to first person privileges The brilliant blonde pony tailed flaunting FBI agent Thomas Pierce He is a great character with a mind that rivals Alex's although he is still emotionally distraught following the murder of his partner at the hands of Mr Smith It is really interesting flowing in the minds of these amazing individuals I like to uestion what I would think or do in the same scenarios that they find themselves freuenting within That is a large part of the fun for me I wonder if a real detective would be able to predict the way the plot progressed the numerous twists and crazy revelations whilst reading this It is an adrenaline pumping thrill ride of a book with turns and twists aplenty One of the revelations however; did seem a little bit too convenient although not predictable something about it doesn't uite fit right with me I thought this revelation was to misguide the reader to then shock when the further truth was revealed I was over thinking and it wasn't that complex I don't think this book it is as unpredictable and intricate as some of Patterson's prior entries I always seem to enjoy these books and generally race through them within a couple of days If you haven't read an Alex Cross novel then you really need to do yourself a favour and start one The action is on par with Die Hard


READ & DOWNLOAD Cat Mouse 107 ↠ [Download] ➾ Cat Mouse Author James Patterson – 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 Alex Cross is back and so is a raging and suicidTo 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

Victims 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 why does Patterson feels the need to RANDOMLY EMPHASIZE PASSAGES FOR NO GOOD REASON I mean is there really a need to confuse the reader by adding italics not only for thoughts BUT FOR SUDDEN BURSTS OF WRITING THAT APPEAR TO MEAN NOTHING This gets worse in the second and forth book I skipped #3 this time around but IT'S PRETTY ANNOYING HERE TOO See what I means Oh and learn how to write a 4 year old's thoughts so that she doesn't sound older and wiser than Nana Actually she and Nana might as well be the same character except that the girl is there to be cute and Nana is there to be racist 'Cause apparently being racist when your old is okayAll in all a book to be avoided especially if you actually read and THINK about what you are reading If you are the kind of person who listens to the beat of the song and has no idea what the words are you might like it just fine And if you are white and feel guilty about it you will probably even find it deep
