Cat & Mouse

by James Patterson
As told by James Patterson

Grand Central Publishing | November 1, 1998 | Mass Market Paperbound

Cat & Mouse is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 5.
Alex Cross is back-and so is a raging and suicidal Gary Soneji. Out of prison and dying from the AIDS virus he contracted there, he will get revenge on Cross before he dies. In addition, we are introduced to a new pair of rivals whose paths cross that of Alex and Soneji. Thomas Augustine Pierce has been chasing his demon, Mr. Smith, since the savage murder of his fiancee. Mr. Smith is a unique monster, with actions toward his 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 Cross.When 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 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 killing.The 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 survives?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nothing is what it seems! It doesn't take long before being immersed in this booking, soaking in the characters that are well developed in a short time. The story unfolds so smoothly, giving away very little - you almost want to read it again to see what you missed! Patterson's is definitely on my reading list now...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cat and Mouse It was nice to visit again with Alex Cross, his children, his grandmother and his partner Sampson on the trail again of Gary Soneji. Cat & Mouse had a lot of twists and turns. Along with Alex and Gary, we were also introduced to Tom Pierce and Mr. Smith. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and look forward to the next Alex Cross adventure.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Cat and Mouse Well! I finished reading this and could have thrown the book across the room or at the author himself if he would have been anywhere near. He probably would have just laughed at me and said "gotcha". I love his books; they are a fast read and most of them are page-turners, with short chapters that help with the suspense. I have read nearly everything he's written and have recommended them to customers. This book will be no exception, but I'm still frustrated with him because of the unsettling ending.

From the Jacket

A murderer named Gary Soneji patiently waits in the basement of Alex Cross's home in Washington. He has come to kill Cross and his family. That's just the beginning of the greatest page-turner in years. Two mind-numbing killers -- one operating up and down the East Coast of America, one in Europe -- believe Cross is their only worthy opponent. They dare to ask the ultimate question: Is Alex Cross about to die? You won't put CAT & MOUSE down until the question is answered.

As the bodies pile up, and Cross is nearly murdered in his own home, the game of cat and mouse leads to one final trap, and it's anyone's guess who'll survive.
