Publisher Description

On the verge of resigning from the DC police force, Detective Alex Cross knows he can’t refuse this case. His partner John Sampson has a friend who has been framed for murder and is facing the gas chamber. His accusers? The United States Army. As a new woman in Cross’ life brings him hope in the face of a devastating loss at home, Cross and Sampson go up against codes of honor and silence three ruthless killers. But a bigger threat lies in wait: their controller, a lethal genius who will introduce Cross to new depths of terror … the last of the Four Blind Mice.

"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."

— Kaye (4 out of 5 stars)

Fernandez captures the confident character of Cross and reflects the gravity of the story’s plot. Michael Emerson brings chills as he delivers an edge to the calculating, emotionless killers as they plan each murder. The background music and sounds enhance the presentation, and the accomplished readers add breadth and realism to the characters and cultures portrayed.”

    " 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. "

    " 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. "

    " 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.) "

    " 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. "
