In Cat & Mouse, things get too close to home. Two killers, one operating in America, one in Europe believe Alex Cross is the only worthy opponent in the deadly game each has planned. Villain Gary Soneji is back. He vows his last act on earth will be taking the life of Alex Cross. But first he wants to have some fun. Union Station, Washington, and Penn Station in New York are scenes of chaos as Soneji creates a train ride to hell. With time running out, Cross must predict Soneji’s next move—the lives of thousands of innocent commuters hang in the balance.

Meanwhile, a second game of cat and mouse is being played. Thomas Augustine Pierce is referred to by the FBI and Interpol as “St. Augustine” for his uncanny ability to catch killers. He has been chasing his demon, Mr. Smith, since his fiancée was brutally murdered.

But when the Soneji case takes a baffling new twist, Pierce must put the Mr. Smith case on hold to assist in a special investigation.  Will Cross, or Pierce, figure everything out before it’s too late? From DC to Delaware, New York to Paris, Cat & Mouse will take you on a heart-pounding adventure.
