Four Blind Mice

by James Patterson

Little, Brown And Company | November 18, 2002 | Hardcover | Large Print

Four Blind Mice is rated 2.4286 out of 5 by 7.
Detective Alex Cross is on his way to resign from the Washington, D.C., Police Force when his partner shows up at his door with a case he can''t refuse. One of John Sampson''s oldest friends, from their days together in Vietnam, has been arrested for murder. Worse yet, he is subject to the iron hand of the United States Army. The evidence against him is strong enough to send him to the gas chamber.

Sampson is certain his friend has been framed, and Alex''s investigation turns up evidence overlooked-or concealed-by the military authorities. Drawing on their years of street training and an almost telepathic mutual trust, Cross and Sampson go deep behind military lines to confront the most terrifying-and deadly-killers they have ever encountered. Behind these three highly skilled killing machines there appears to be an even more threatening controller. Discovering the identity of this lethal genius will prove to be Cross''s most terrifying challenge ever.

On his visits home, Alex must confront another, more harrowing mystery: what''s the matter with Nana Mama? As he explores the possibility of a new relationship with a woman who offers him new hope, Alex must also confront the fact that his beloved grandmother is only human.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from OMG!!!! This book is no where near better than any of the others. I was actually sort of disappointed. This book was boring. No adrenaline, no much romance, although there are a few good scenes (cough, cough). Anyway the ending was nothing compared to the others. There was no action no learning anything it was all just boring. I'd advise you to read another book in the James Patterson series.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great book by a great writer The book reads as fast as a movie except better. Patersons style of writing and the plot as usual makes this another "can't put down till your finished " novel

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gripping with Suspense Detective Alex Cross and his partner John Sampson are relentless in their determination to uncover the identity of true killers of several solved gruesome murders that appeared to be open and shut cases but turn out to be anything but. Riddled in cover up, controversy and the grey wall of silence, these murders cases engulf Cross and Sampson as they persevere for answers to uncover the truth. Good Luck on putting this book down before it's finished!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Shameless Rip-Off !! I'm a fan of Alex Cross (and Alex Delaware too by the way), so I'm pained to say that I should have listened to the warnings of others here about this book. Patterson is ripping us off here and it will be a long time before I buy another one of his books. Too bad... he used to be so good.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from I'd Rather Watch Paint Dry It took me a little over an hour to read this book which I'm sure is more time, effort and thought than Mr Patterson took in writing it. The publisher would have been better off binding a bunch of blank pages together as this would have been more interesting than the entire book.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Cross on auto-pilot I have NOT read Four Blind Mice.I have become so totally put off by James Patterson's lack of effort that reading his newest two page chapters full of poorly developed,thin,recycled drivel is a waste of time and a frustrating exercise.It's too bad,really, I used to love the Alex Cross series. I guess I matured as a reader faster than Patterson has as a writer.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from losing his touch I have been a HUGE fan of James Patterson for quite some time now, but I have to say he is losing his touch. Four Blind Mice is predictable, and some of the dialogue is laughable, (not in a good way). It seems he could do so much more with the character of Alex Cross - but that he rushed everything just to finish the book on time. Hopefully the next will be an improvement.
