Publisher's Summary

Two killers, one operating in America and the other in Europe, have chosen the FBI's Alex Cross as their prey. One is the megalomaniac Gary Soneji, Cross's nemesis from Along Came a Spider, who takes Cross on a train ride to hell. The other, Mr. Smith, spreads panic through Europe when he strikes London, then Paris. Mr. Smith has been eluding another agent, Thomas Augustine Pierce, and now Pierce must put the case on hold. Narrated by renowned stage and screen actors Anthony Heald and Keith David, this suspenseful novel will leave the listener wondering who's the cat...and who's the mouse.

    "Glad I did..."

    Almost didn't purchase this book because all the previous reviews talked about the bad audio quality of the book, and how hard it was to hear it. I like to read series in order so I purchased Cat and Mouse anyway. I am glad I did...

    Either this is a new issue or they have resolved the audio issues, because I had no trouble hearing the book. And I want to note that I have hearing issues that can make it difficult to understand some things depending on the circumstances. I would recommend this book. By the way, I downloaded format 4.

    The story kept me interested, even though I'm not a fan of abridged versions. Reading the series in order was important to me and I'm happy I went ahead and bought the book.

    "DO NOT BUY THIS VERSION!"

    The sound quality is SO bad! It is inAUDIBLE.com! The book may be great, but you'd never know...you can't hear it.

    "Terrible Audio"

    This book had a pretty decent plot. It was typical Alex Cross. However, the audio was so bad that I could not listen to it for more than about 30 minutes at a time. I will not download anymore books unless they are available in format 3 or higher. It was a waste of a credit!

    "Beware sound is Terrible"

    The story was great, what I could understand that is!!! I should have paid more attention to the other reviews listed here. SOUND QUALITY IS VERY BAD, DO NOT BUY THIS VERSION.

    "hard to listen to"

    the story was great and very exciting at the end, but it was hard to listen to because it had poor sound quality. when the music kicked in it sounded horrible and was hard to hear the reader. good listen, just not a good listen for maybe a first time listener.

    The entire story, there was really no part that wasn't exciting.


    What about Anthony Heald and Keith David ’s performance did you like?

    Each made their characters more memorable.

    Story
    "My worst use of a credit ever."

    First, I hate abridged books, and I overlooked that significant word when I purchased. It jumps from action scene to action scene without letting any feelings for the characters develop or any sense of curiosity to build. Second, the sound effects were terribly annoying in this book. I didn't have any audio difficulties that other readers mentioned, but the background music and whispering voices signifying thoughts were someone's very bad idea. The fact that the book was abridged probably added to that nuisance factor, as the sound effects in audio books typically accompany the most dramatic scenes, which of course are the only ones to be found in an abridged version. I would have given zero stars for performance had I had the option, and for the story I would have given a question mark. Story development just isn't adequate in abridged books.

    "Abridge edition leaves gaps in story line"

    The abridged additions leave out a lot of the background and Alex's thought process. Patterson is such a great writer, and much of the depth of the story line is lost with the abridged recordings. It is not just with this book but others that are abridged as well.
