Format: Mass Market Paperback
I have noticed that after a while, James Patterson's books all seem the same. In the fourth Alex Cross novel, "Cat and Mouse", Cross must combat his old enemy Gary Sanji, who has arrived out of nowhere to take revenge on him. Also, Senji has a secret. And there is also a new villian thrown into the mix; Mr. Smith, who is murdering people all over Europe and in the U.S. On his trail is Agent Pierce of the FBI. How these two storys combine is pretty thin for my taste. The whole book seemed way to contrived. I usually like Patterson's books, but this one, while fast paced and exciting (loved the chase through the New York subways), just dosn't hold up to logic very well, even worst here than usual. Cross is in love with his kids' school principal, who lost her husband in the previous book "Jack and Jill". She seems to be just there to give Cross somthing to do between cases. All in all, I really didn't like this one as well as I did the others.

Again, another novel by James Patterson in the Alex Cross series that will get your attention- and not let go!
This is one of my favorites of Patterson's, having read it a few years ago it still sticks out in my mind as a fast-paced thriller. And the more I read of Alex Cross, the more I like him. With two mad-men out to get Cross, you can't guess what will happen in this book! Never a dull moment.
If you're looking for a new author to try in the crime thriller genre, you should definitely add Patterson to your "to-read" list!

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Cat and Mouse went awry and James Patterson didn't have the time or desire to go back and fix it before the publication date.
First, I'm not a fan of the Gary Soneji character who Patterson dotes on in all his novels. I liked having the threat of Soneji in Jack and Jill, but as a main character, he becomes a tedious, repetitious attempt for Alex Cross to create a psychological profile. It is plain annoying. Then Mr. Smith felt like a scrap of writing that Patterson had lying around that he wanted to use somewhere. The second, first person narrator through the mid section of the book was an obvious and unsatisfying attempt to attach it. Bad!
What's good? I love the primary characters. Alex, Nana, Jannie, Damon, Christine Johnson are excellent. The relationships are outstanding. John Sampson is also a very cool character and was severely underused in this story. Tom Pierce got too much focus and Sampson was forgotten. James Patterson falls way short in this one.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
This was the first Patterson novel I've read, and I'm not sure if I'll read another one or not. First, I thought the murders committed in the book were overly-violent. If that's not something that bothers you, you may like this novel better than I did. The other thing that bothered me was that I found some of the plot twists a little beyond belief. I like plot twists that are cleverly constructed so I find myself thinking "yeah, why didn't I catch on to that?" not "where did that come from?". Maybe I missed something when I was reading the book, but I just found some of it too far-fetched for me. I did find myself wanting to keep reading, though, so it wasn't bad. I guess I just prefer other authors better than this one.

This kept me trying to guess what would happen next. I will probably never be a detective. One of the best! Actually, I have
never read an Alex Cross mystery that hasn't captured me to the fullest!

James Patterson is one intelligent writer/person. He keeps his readers glued to his stories. Many thanks again, Mr. Patterson.

Format: Hardcover
Couldn't find a physical copy of Jack & Jill, the third installment in the Alex Cross series, in my local library, so I put one of one of their three downloadable copies on hold, but that was almost 3 weeks ago, and I'm still waiting for notification that a copy is ready for download. In the meantime, I skipped ahead to the fourth installment in the series, Cat & Mouse. There is nothing in book four that ruins book three if read out of order. After all, the books are written so that the reader can start reading any book in the series and not be lost. Each book contains adequate explanation in the first few chapters to provide the reader with enough background information. That being said, I would still really like to read Jack & Jill once it's available for download.

He's baaaaaack! Gary Soneji, that is. After escaping from prison, Soneji returns to wrap up his unfinished business with Alex Cross. Add to that a second, and completely independent serial killer, Mr. Smith, and Cross has his work cut out for himself. Then there is the matter of Christine Johnson, the principal of Cross's kids' school, and the widow of one of the victims of book three.

This book was okay, but not nearly as captivating as its predecessors. In my opinion, Patterson has attempted to cram too much into this novel, resulting in a disjointed plot that jumps back and forth between two continents, and two killers. The subplot of Cross's relationship with Johnson, however, is both necessary and enjoyable, and is poised to become a critical turning point in Cross's career and personal life.
