Publisher's Summary

The fourth heart-stopping novel in James Patterson's Alex Cross series. Just as Alex Cross is beginning to feel that life is good and he is finally coming out of the depression he's been in since the death of his wife, he is called to Union Station train terminal - a man is on the loose, firing at random into the swarming crowds of travellers.

Psychopath Gary Soneji seems determined to go down in a blaze of glory, and he wants Alex Cross to be there. Will this be the final showdown?

Unfortunate voice over choice

I tried, I really did, but in the end the mispronunciations of key character names, the cringeworthy character accents... I could not go past one hour.. will read instead

You are Best to READ this BOOK

The narrators are very difficult to listen to. I would have thought that there should be some quality control with narrators. Apparently not. After 10 chapters, I just couldn’t cope with the narrators anymore so I return it.

So, I will have to read this one.

Horrific narrator

The slow drawn-out drawl absolutely ruins it for me. I couldn't listen to it for more than an hour. Guess I'll have to read the book.

Jeff Harding Awesome

What made the experience of listening to Cat and Mouse the most enjoyable?

Jeff Harding's entertaining narration.

What did you like best about this story?

I enjoy Alex Cross books and the story was very good.

Any additional comments?

Raj Ghatak was very poor, with robotic, bland narration.

Long and Tedious

Not the best storyline from Patterson. Really two stories strung together for over 120 chapters!
Alex Cross role seems to have been as the storyline punchbag.
Little suspense but overdone gruesome murders ugh!

Slightly disappointed

Once again the story was very good, but the different narrator spoilt it very slightly

Jeff Harding should not narrate this book

Jeff Harding is good for other books but ruined it for me here. Not being racist but he really went over the top trying to be Black which killed the enjoyment for me.
