    " In what he claims to be his last case before retiring from the DCPD, Detective Alex Cross helps his longtime friend and partner John Sampson investigate the case of Sampson's old Vietnam buddy Sergeant Ellis Cooper who was convicted of first-degree murder and sentenced to death by lethal injection by the U.S. Army. However, Cooper proclaims his innocence up to the final moments when he is executed. Now, to clear his name, Cross and Sampson decide to continue their investigation and discover that he, among many others, were set up by three former Army assassins who go by the nickname of the Three Blind Mice. Very suspenseful and fast moving book which is the trademark of Patterson. However, it seems that Cross' character is really starting to get a little tired and he should really be retired by Patterson entirely. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mousie Garza | 2/4/2014

    " I've really enjoyed this book. It did get a litle slow about halfway in, but the rest of the book compensated for it. This book really gets you thinking of this that have a already happened. I'm not gonna spoil the book for those who haven't read it. All I can say is that you should read it. "

    " Third time to read this series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kaye | 1/13/2014

    " Book 8 of the Alex Cross series. Also found this story line compelling. Alex's partner Sampson has more of a roll as he and Alex work to solve a series of seemly unrelated murders in the military. All of which someone has already been caught and often executed for. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 James Stuart | 1/10/2014

    " Unbelievable, fantastic plot. However, characters and action and suspense were good. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 A.R. Voss | 1/5/2014

    " I haven't been a James Patterson fan; I find most of his works as medicare at best. However this one was more interesting than some other ones I had read. It was an interesting murder mystery. I guess I have to give it to this author, he writes a lot and has plenty of imagination. But at what cost? (From what I hear, great amounts in his bank account, therefore, kudos to him.) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Carrian Cheney | 12/28/2013

    " Good book, and I always like a mystery, but I hate language or sexual innuendo so every now and again you have to move over language, but it's still pretty good "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kim | 12/12/2013

    " James Patterson always delivers a fascinating, action-packed thriller. Practically a non-stop thrill with a great plot. Love the short, stunning chapters. Impossible to put down. "

    " I only liked this book. I think it was longer than it could have been. It seemed to drag in parts, but it was still a pretty good book. I'll keep reading the series, because I still love Alex Cross. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nick | 11/11/2013

    " Without giving anything away, this is an interesting twist on the basic Patterson story. After 7 previous Cross novels, a pattern starts to appear. This book was a refreshing deviation from the common story. "

    " "Finished up Four Blind Mice and as usual James Patterson never lets you down. It's always a good read. Scares me to think that perhaps there could be some truth to some of this story." "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Emily | 5/7/2011

    " Again, not a very good read. Not as smoothly written and hard to get through because the plot got boring. "

    " Honestly? I didn't feel like there was a whole lot of the actual mystery in here. It all seemed rather clear-cut, right from the beginning. Not his best. "

    " A great book in the Alex Cross series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Shaft | 2/9/2011

    " Another great story from James Patterson. Definitely a solid story but I could not recommend it as a jumping on point as by this point in the series too many references are made to past important events. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jody | 2/6/2011

    " An Alex Cross novel-need I say more? Lots of thrilling plot twists. "
