Per Gary Soneji la vendetta è l’unica ragione di vita: uccidere Alex Cross, il detective che ha contribuito a farlo rinchiudere nella prigione da cui è appena evaso. Lo vuole morto, e ha un piano per attirarlo in trappola: una serie di attentati nelle stazioni ferroviarie di Washington e New York. Contemporaneamente, sulla sponda opposta dell’Atlantico, Thomas Pierce, dell’FBI, sta braccando Mr. Smith, uno psicopatico che rapisce donne e uomini a caso e li fa ritrovare, pochi giorni dopo, fatti a pezzi, come le tessere di un misterioso puzzle. Due serial killer e due detective, apparentemente, ma chi è il cacciatore e chi la preda? C’è forse un legame tra le due vicende? E chi sarà la prossima vittima?

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'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 M Leggi tutto
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 t Leggi tutto
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 C&P of the first Cross book since a Leggi tutto
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 lick Leggi tutto
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 putti Leggi tutto
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 care". The things the alpha Leggi tutto
3.5* I 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 t Leggi tutto
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 th Leggi tutto
GAG!! Maybe 2.25 stars. I'm usually a huge Alex Cross fan, the first two books - shit scary. Number 3... meh. But this one?? Seriously?! It basically read like two books - the first half with Soneji was a flop, I didn't find that necessary, yes it was creepy but pretty disappointing. And (ok, maybe I Leggi tutto
