Cat Mouse

Summary Cat Mouse

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. 35I liked it but wasn’t as into as I was the previous three of the series Still set up for a good continuous of the series I liked the crime plots and I especially liked the twists in the Pierce case The Cross crime plot was actually solved too easily in my opinion There was no grand lead up to it so to speak and not too much to consider twists or turns The characters are amusing to follow in this series I have been told by so many that the Alex Cross series will become my favorite James Patterson co authored series but I’m still holding on to the Michael Bennett series as my favorite so far We will see after some Cross books though My uick and simple overall uick and good read but it did take me way longer but that had to do with my dissertation edits responsibility over the book

James Patterson ☆ 8 Free read

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

    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

    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

    Why do I keep picking up Alex Cross novels when I am constantly dissapointed? Is it because I read Kiss the Girls when I was much younger and at that time found it enjoyable? Ah the blissful pleasures of ignorant youth Maybe it is just because there happen to be so many in every airport bookstore that I just can't resist This book was apparently thrown togeather with no regard for cohesive story line no thought of how time passes and no thought of how real people think and feel Alex Cross who used to be kind of heroic is left looking silly and juvinile Why does he keep putting his family and girlfrind in danger if he is so smart and such a good guy?Ahh No James Patterson

    This book is so hard to describe I can only say it is like the hot girl who will talk to you but she has horrible breath You can't help but stick around and hey she's talking to you which is a bonus but in the end you just can't get around the fact that you know kissing her would be like licking a public toiletSo what you might ask is so likeable about the book?The story is awesome and Patterson can write a thriller like no one else The story segments are great It is the big picture that makes it fall apart I actually commented on it in an earlier review how I was afraid I could see the pattern emerging The moment Thomas Peirce was mentioned and he was going to be a doctor did anyone not know he was going end up being Mr Smith? And if you did do you start drinking before noon?It was just so telegraphed and not a surprise at all And that makes it very hard as a reader because the line to line writing is so good but it just sucks when you know how it is going to end thirty pages in And at least for myself it doesn’t help that I still couldn’t put it downBook 5 better not have someone in the FBI a cop or another person “on” the investigation doing the deed And for Christ’s sake please move Alex or put bars and your doors and windows Your kids were almost murdered Nana almost died and you have now been assaulted twice in your house Maybe if you are hunting crazy people you should invest in some better security And that reminded me after kids are attacked in their own home and beaten I don’t think they snap back to normal so uicklyArghhh I really liked reading it but disliked it as a whole even though I liked it Damn you pretty girl with bad breath

    Just like Jack and Jill Cat and Mouse forces Alex to take on two murderers again One killer is the Gary Soneji who was introduced to us in the first book Along Came a Spider He's dying from AIDS and wants to go out with a bang Oh and he most definitely wants his revenge on Alex Cross for putting him in jailThen there's Mr Smith who is off kidnapping and killing people in France He basically taunts the police because he calls them when there's a new victim and then later when he tells them where they can find the body Seems like a fun challenge for Alex right?Well yes it was This book was a pretty uick read due to the really short chapters which I really loved because it just makes you consume the book so much uicker Then off course Cat and Mouse definitely delivers some really good twists and turns Alex sort of finds love but I didn't really care about that part I just wanted the murders solved and killers behind bars or deadI saw some stuff coming like how Mr Smith really was and I was so freaking happy that I guessed right and other stuff I had no idea would happened I'm so glad that I got the chance to read this book because I'm loving this series so far I can't wait to dive into the next book

    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

    Would you be an assassin? When is being the bad guy ever good? Is being an assassin a good or a bad thing? Do killers have different problems then regular people?

    This book is perfect for someone looking for a completely predictable awfully written over played detective story Patterson's writing style in Cat and Mouse is hideous He constantly is switching from the first person views of one character to another leaving the reader still trying to find the meaning in the pointless two page chapter before it Not to mention Patterson divides the book into two sections that are not even relatable Halfway through the book Patterson switches from the Soneji case to the Mr Smith case as if it were a new book All the endings are extremely predictable but somehow the worlds most perfect detective Alex Cross couldn't figure it out Along Came a Spider was good Kiss the Girls was great Jack and Jill was OK but the fourth book Cat and Mouse was horrible Even with my love with the series from the first two books I will absolutely not continue the series Unless you are looking for a book to put you to sleep stay away from Cat and Mouse
