Four Blind Mice: Alex Cross, Book 8

Alex Cross is preparing to resign from the Washington Police Force. He's enjoying the feeling; not least because the Mastermind is now in prison. And Alex has met a woman, Jamilla Hughes, and he is talking about the future. Then John Sampson shows up at the house, desperate for Alex's help. Three young military wives have been brutally killed during a 'girls' night out' and Sampson's friend, a master sergeant at the army base, stands accused.

Publisher's Summary

Alex Cross is preparing to resign from the Washington Police Force. He's enjoying the feeling; not least because the Mastermind is now in prison. And Alex has met a woman, Jamilla Hughes, and he is talking about the future. Then John Sampson shows up at the house, desperate for Alex's help. Three young military wives have been brutally killed during a 'girls' night out' and Sampson's friend, a master sergeant at the army base, stands accused.

Uncovering evidence of a series of suspicious murder convictions, Alex and Sampson are determined to infiltrate the closed world of the military. But what is the army trying to hide? And do the mysterious symbols daubed on the house of the accused mean that there are more sinister forces at work?

With his trade-mark razor-sharp plotting and adrenaline-filled action, James Patterson takes us on a rollercoaster tale of suspense, politics, and intrigue that proves once again that he is, quite simply, in a class of his own.

    "Not bad, but predictable as usual"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    The book wasn't bad, but it wasn't great. The story was interesting enough, but Patterson's formula of introducing a minor character early in the book that comes back in a plot twist later on is tiring. It's in every one of his books. The worst thing is, he expects the reader to be shocked. However consistent readers of his books will be anything but.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    The fact that it was a military-based story. Usually, it's just a civilian killing people and causing trouble. This was a welcome change. Least interesting (as usual) was the scenes with Alex and Nana Mama. Especially in this book, Patterson creates scenes where we should be concerned with Nana. But I find myself not caring about her at all. She just slows down the story IMHO.


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    The narrator sounded good most of the time, easing into the role as if he had been reading since the beginning of the series. However, at times he speaks in a halting voice and inflection that reminds me of Zapp Brannigan from Futurama. This is not a good thing for a thriller.


    Was Four Blind Mice worth the listening time?

    I guess. It was something to pass the time while travelling.


    Any additional comments?

    Patterson needs to change his writing formula. He is so damn predictable, it's frustrating and boring: Story told from Cross's and the villains POV. Minor character introduced at some point early in the story and then forgotten. Events play out. Cross catches killer. Other evidence points to other parties being involved. Minor character turns out to be the ringleader behind everything. Rinse and repeat for next book. Don't be such a hack, James. Do something original for once
