Audiobook Review: Cat & Mouse

Book cover
Title: Cat & Mouse (Abridged)
Author: James Patterson
Genre: Mystery, Suspense
Pub Date: December 2007, Hachette Audio


The latest of installment of the bestselling Alex Cross series finds James Patterson's intrepid Washington, D.C., homicide detective besieged by not one, but two deadly killers. To make matters worse, Cross has fallen deeply in love with Christine Johnson -- last seen in Jack & Jill-- a relationship that leaves him and his family all the more vulnerable to the deadly game his murderous opponents have devised. 

My Thoughts

My apologies for the drought between reviews. Work has kept me VERY busy lately. I did manage to get through this audiobook during my commutes over the past week and was glad to be listening to books on CD again.

I have not read many of Patterson's Alex Cross novels, but those that I have read so far have generally been exciting and suspenseful. Cat & Mouse was no exception. As always, I can live without the sex that Patterson inevitably includes but without a doubt he knows how to write a thriller that will keep you on your toes. One downside to this audiobook was that the quality of the recording was not that great--there are two readers and they were obviously recorded in different conditions; the two recordings just did not seem to blend together very well.

Overall, while the poor recording quality was distracting, I did enjoy this book and look forward to listening to more Patterson novels soon. His books, with their short chapters, really do work well for my commutes.

My rating: 3 stars

  1. Sadly, I haven't read any James Patterson. . . YET. I've heard great things, so maybe I'll start with an audio cd.
