That monstrous villain Gary Soneji is back in Cat & Mouse, the fourth book in James Patterson's series about Alex Cross, a police forensic psychologist, but he's not alone. In seeming support of the premise that you can never have too much of a bad thing, Patterson has thrown a second serial killer into the mix: Mr. Smith, a mysterious killer terrorizing Europe while Soneji practices his own brand of evil along the Eastern Seaboard. With two killers to track, Cross has his hands full--and Patterson has another hit. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

With "Cat and Mouse", he escelates the dark brutality and suspense, bringing back a dispicable villain from the past and creating an even more intriguing one. Gary Sonjei (from "Along Came a Spider") escapes from jail, and his hell-bent on vengeance to Alex Cross. He murders grandoise amounts of people, and spills their blood like water. Alex wonders, Why would Gary Sonjei be so disorganized, so blatantly insane. In the past, he murdered people in an organized way, but now, he's just totally insane. I haven't read "Along Came a Spider" yet, but this book is just as enjoyable for me not even having read it. As the mysteries thicken with Sonjei, Thomas Pierce, another detective, is working on one of the most bizarre murder cases of today-a mysterious man named Mr. Smith, who performs autopsies on his victims, WHILE they're alive. Mr. Smith is brought in to help on a case involving someone who may or may not be an accomplice to Gary, and things escalate to an exciting and terrifying climax. This book really tells a great tale, involving such themes as infidelities, humanity, love, and trains (read the book and find out) :). It's one of the most shocking and suspenseful books I have ever read, and it's sooooo hard to put down. It's a masterpiece, in my opinion, and ranks with Patterson's "Roses Are Red". Brilliance! Sheer brilliance!!
