    1. I m not a big fan of detective novels but I read this book during the time when this was the only available novel at home, a time when ebooks have not been invented yet The story was interesting enough to make me finish it.


    2. Reading a James Patterson novel is akin to eating soggy cereal eatable but not necessarily the first choice for breakfast With that being said, I gave this one four stars Call me a hypocrite, if you like But the rating is not so much on Patterson s skills as a writer which he has few, in my opinion rather the rating deals with his skills as a storyteller which he excels at FOUR BLIND MICE stars Alex Cross, a homicide detective with too much education Morgan Freeman played the character in two mo [...]


    3. As usual, listened to a Patterson murder mystery when driving to Virginia in the middle of the night I need something that will keep me awake although I m glad this one didn t have gunshot sound effects, as that sent my dog into a tizzy last time but that I don t need to pay close attention to I mean, no matter what, Alex Cross is going to swear this is his last case it won t be , he is going to fall madly in love with someone, he is going to wax poetic about how much he loves his children while [...]


    4. Could be my favorite Alex Cross novel yet The book moved along at a good place and was very complicated in terms of the actual murders and who was behind them Cross is ready to retire, but Sampson recruits him to check out a murder in which his friend, Sergeant Ellis Cooper is accused The murders are quite brutal and there s a patter going on, but the army appears to be covering something up Things also start to heat up with Cross and Jamilla Hughes as well.I definitely thought the book was well [...]


    5. This is Patterson s eighth Alex Cross novel, and I have to admit, I ve been a lot impressed The guy is prolific and popular, and his other books have been pretty good.My biggest complaint is that around page 300, I discovered that Cross, the main character, is African American, not white like I d assumed And it was a fair assumption Patterson is on the back cover of the book, and he sure looks like a white guy to me My problem isn t with the character s race, it s with having to readjust my men [...]


    6. Warning There are some spoilers within this review but I m just way too lazy to just type out the whole formula thing to hide certain stuff Read at your own risk and I m sorry While reading Four Blind Mice has Cross dealing against a trio of killers Oh, and since the Mastermind is in jail Alex is thinking about retiring from the Washington Police Force Now of course one would realize that Alex isn t going to actually retire retire Yeah, he might quit the force but I have a feeling that he s goin [...]


    7. I don t really hold any expectation of James Patterson novels beyond basic entertainment at the afternoon television sitcom level it passes the time, but rarely is memorable.Thankfully this novel wasn t so bland as many of his others a pretty decent story line, somewhat based in reality there were some serious massacres in Vietnam which once found out about were covered up and despite ample evidence were never prosecuted and enough mystery and suspense to keep the pages turning.Like his over nov [...]


    8. Many people have never experienced what Alex Cross has, or came close to it When Alex decides to retire from being a homocide detective, but an interference with a childhood friend of his, John Sampson, comes along with a case Cross knows he can not refuse Cross agrees to take the case This will be his last case He doesn t realize how dangerous and complicated the case turns out to be until he has dug himself in so deep that there is no turning back for him or Sampson Sampson explains to Alex th [...]


    9. This is the 8th book with Alex Cross, but the first I read involving that character Will have to read the others.Alex and his good friend John Sampson look into the murder conviction of a man John served with in Vietnam While looking into the case they find discrepancies and cover ups in the military records Other similar cases are found as they seek the truth behind several military personnel, with previously clean records, being convicted of heinous crimes and sentenced to the death penalty.Se [...]


    10. I have read and enjoyed James Patterson in the past, but can honestly say that this will be the last Patterson book I will read I was truly disappointed in the lack of storytelling and writing ability The book had no depth, and the story suffered for it As I read the book I got the impression that Mr Patterson was simply trying to crank out a book as quickly as possible, and could not be bothered with such things as descriptive detail or creative plotting I did not find the characters or their b [...]


    11. I really liked this book It s about Alex Cross and his hunt for the Three Blind Mice This group is made up of three war veterans turned hitmen Alex Cross is put on the case to stop the rampaging hitmen This story is full of action and suspense I loved how James Patterson developed the characters throughout the book and made you really root for Cross and really despise the bad guys, and these bad guys are no joke the worst.Just an overall great book and I d highly recommend it.



    12. After reading two lengthy, complex, and rather difficult novels, I decided to turn to a nice easy read to recharge my engines once again I ve read all of the Alex Cross series leading up to this one and enjoyed most of them even if they weren t exactly well written But this one fell short and I hope it isn t a trend in the making.The best Alex Cross novels are those in which he goes up against a criminal mastermind of one stripe or another In this one, though, the bad guys revealed very near the [...]


    13. My time with Alex Cross may be coming to an end The previous novel, Violets are Blue, was one of the worst things I ever read, and this was better, but that isn t saying much.Dont read this review if you dont want all the plot points ruined.Here are some reasons why this book isnt worth your time.The plot is massively complex, apparently a former Vietnamese soldier Luu , came to the US after the war and started a gang He eventually kills a bunch of people and is sent to death row at a federal pr [...]


    14. In FOUR BLIND MICE, Patterson takes an intriguing premise an investigation into a group of Vietnam vets being framed for murder and turns it into a complete and utter waste of time No scene stands out in this novel, nothing feels the least bit real or convincing The romance, the family drama, and the dialog are almost unbearable in their cheesiness Even the mystery solving is boring The only breaks in the case come from Cross browsing through old army files and conducting searches on Lexus Nexus [...]


    15. There s not much new with this installment of the Alex Cross series Cross is drawn into a case involving some Vietnam era Rangers who ve been setting up other Army soldiers in brutal murder cases Alex is also trying to decide whether to continue as a detective or do something else Patterson gives the reader his usual staccato chapters and twists Recommended if you re looking for a quick, relatively mindless story.


    16. For being a first time James Patterson reader, I am now hooked This was an awesome book and I was hooked and caught in from page 1 I would recommend this book to everyone I do have to start from the first Alex Cross book to get the idea of what has been going on with this character and once I do that all will be good lol Definite read


    17. 4.5 stars Great way to finish up my reading goal for the year Love these books and seem to forget all about how exciting they are until I finally read another.




    18. Time taken to read 2 days on and offPages 416Publisher HeadlineSource GiftBlurb from 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 arm [...]


    19. First and foremost, this is a quick and easy read I forgot to bring a book of my own along with me for Christmas dinner, so picked it up at the Mom s house on Christmas afternoon while the bird was in the oven for three hours I didn t read the whole book that day what with breaks to chat and mash the potatoes It took about an hour this afternoon to finish it off.That s pretty quick for 387 pages.But it s not really 387 pages, of course Really, it s probably around two thirds of that Here s a typ [...]


    20. I m filling in the blanks on the Cross saga, can t remember reading this one before but then, what can I remember In this edition Cross is teamed with best buddy John Sampson once again Though Cross has decided to leave the force, he gives in to Sampson s pleas for help with a friend of his This friend, Sgt Ellis Cooper has been found guilty for the murder of three women, a brutal and despicable crime Cooper swears he s innocent but he s on the way to execution nonetheless As hard as Alex and Sa [...]


    21. I guess reading these books now are a little beneath the talented writers that are invading my bookshelf James Patterson was a fitting introduction to reading all those years ago, mainly after watching Kiss the Girls, Cat and Mouse was the very first novel I read I m clearing out my bookshelf and there are a few of these books that fell to the side, probably rightly so James Patterson has very clunky exposition and the twists mainly arrive from the soap opera style he has developed over time, Ky [...]


    22. It s pretty good.I guessSo, I don t like writing negative reviews of books Mainly because there s no point I read books because I enjoy them and sometimes for the literary genius but the latter obviously does not apply to books by James Patterson.Hence, I want to like this book But s sort of boring in some ways and a tiny bit anti climatic The action is unnecessary and feels forced But, it s still thrilling So, no problem.What Ireallyliked about the book was the amount of effort that Patterson s [...]


    23. No telling why I liked this one so much but I did This was definitely one of his top thrillers A cat and mouse chase till the very end Titled appropriately Patterson tends to go a bit out there with some of his crime patterns, so much so that I was beginning to wonder if I was going to finish the series But this one has reeled me back in Innocent ex military men being convicted of murders and killed on death row Cross can t save them all, but he definitely puts a stop to the pattern I might add [...]





    24. I really enjoyed this book because it kept me interested and I never knew what to expect next I enjoyed the ending of the crimes and how Dr Cross all four of the four blind mice I think it was interesting that the original three blind mice didn t know who was the fourth blind mouse that was paying them to commit the murders I thought it was interesting that all the clues led back to the Vietnam War It was also weird that the army didn t want to cooperate with Dr Cross s investigation I was very [...]
