Product Description

From Amazon

In this latest thriller from perennial bestselling author James Patterson, Washington cop Alex Cross gets involved in his partner's effort to save the life of an old Army buddy who's facing execution for a horrendous and inexplicable murder spree in North Carolina. The Army's evidence against Sergeant Ellis Cooper, a decorated Vietnam vet, is overwhelming, which isn't surprising since it's all been planted by a quartet of killers whose reason for framing the erstwhile hero isn't revealed until long after they are. The big secret is who set the murderers loose, and in true cliffhanger fashion, Patterson keeps it under wraps until the very end. Meanwhile, his usual blend of action, violence, fast pacing and uninspired-though-serviceable prose prevail, and will probably do so all the way to the top of the bestseller lists. --Jane Adams --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

From Publishers Weekly

This audio version of Patterson's latest Alex Cross thriller moves smoothly and with great energy. The story is one of Patterson's best: just as Cross is about to retire from the Washington, D.C., police and head out to California to pursue an attractive romantic possibility, he's pulled into an intriguing case in North Carolina by his partner and best friend, John Sampson, who asks Cross to help him prove that an old Vietnam colleague of Sampson's couldn't have killed three women in a particularly brutal manner. With two excellent readers splitting up the good guys' and bad guys' voices between them, the story never wanes or goes off-track. Broadway veteran Fernandez gives a strong performance of Cross and Sampson and adroitly brings Cross's crotchety grandmother to life. Emerson frighteningly portrays the villains, subtly differentiating the characters with his voice.

Fast moving, past, present and a view of the future. Hard to accept that the army would not have been more up front. Good adventure

5.0 out of 5 stars FOUR BLIND MICE April 17 2014
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
I adore reading James Patterson's Alex Cross novels. Some one gave me "Kill Alex Cross". I enjoyed it immensely, to the point that I am going through the series, from the initial book. I have not been disappointed with any of the stories.

This was another great puzzler detective mystery with lots of twists and turns. I always enjoy the references to past characters and situations. This helps new readers catch up and reminds us diehards where things began.

I was VERY disappointed in VIOLETS ARE BLUE and I swore I'd never read another James Pattersn again, well I lied to myself really, THE BEACH HOUSE was okay and then I decided that every author deserves a second chance (though I think some people give him too many).
FOUR BLIND MICE puts Alex Cross back to his normal self. He's logical again, smart again, and the kind that actually needs help again, and Sampson has a big role in this book unlike the past two Cross novels.
The book is very discriptive and grabs your attention from the get go. The book is action packed and I can't help but admit that the book is heart pounding and keep this in mind "expect the unexpected" because this book is full of plot twist.
For those who've been keeping up with the Cross series, good, because you know how important Sampson is, well this book effects Sampson more than Cross this time around. Whild this doesn't seem like the best idea, it shows that Patterson actually has something in store for all his characters.
This is possibly by far one of the better Cross books. To be truthful I didn't have that much faith in this book, but it was surprisingly good.

3.0 out of 5 stars Four Blind Mice Doesn't Deliver Oct. 29 2011
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Alex Cross is back for an eighth installment in Patterson's thrilling series, only this time he's helping out his partner John Sampson look into a case in which an army buddy of Sampson's is facing execution for triple murder in North Carolina. The army's evidence is strong, so Cross and Sampson have to race against the clock to try and prove that the convicted man is actually innocent. They quickly discover that Sampson's friend has been set up, as have a number of other soldiers, and the question becomes, by who?

Personally I found this installment less effective than its predecessors. It is typical fast paced Patterson, but I simply didn't care for the army cross over plot.

4.0 out of 5 stars Don't be cross July 26 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio Cassette
The plot of this book is intriguing; far superior to those detailed in both "Roses are Red" and "Violets are Blue." In short, Cross's partner, John Sampson, faces a personal crisis: his old army superior is on trial for murder. In typical Patterson style, he is, of course, innocent. Sampson knows this and enlists (no army pun intended) the aide of Cross to help solve this travesty. The deeper they dig into this frame up, they bigger the conspiracy they uncover. Many more murders bearing striking similarity to that of their current case are found (big surprise!). It is learned that this string of murders goes all the way back to Vietnam...Like always, you get a fast-paced book and numerous chapters from the killer's perspective. Also recommended: BARK OF THE DOGWOOD

3.0 out of 5 stars Cotton Candy - Good Without Substance April 7 2004
The story moves rapidly. It is laced with violence and death, spiced with thought provoking sermons about capturing family moments and sprinkled with not so subtle jabs at the business of war and some thereby employed.
If you need Spock-like logical characters, this tale is not for you. Patterson's Detective Cross will annoy you when he repeatedly puts himself in harm's way - sometimes alone. Likely equally annoying will be the fact the Patterson does not slow the plot by taking time to explain how Detective Cross and his partner John Sampson are able to spend weeks solving crime(s) with no apparent connection to the District of Columbia - their employer.
Read for entertainment, not to escape the ugliness that life brings to some.
