Well, I just can’t seem to get enough of the Detective Alex Cross series, all of Patterson’s books have been great so far but I have found that I have really gotten into this series. They are also better read in the order they came out as James Patterson takes the time to set up each character so as the books go on the reader feels they are deep inside the pages of the book.
Four Blind Mice is the eighth book in the Alex Cross series and it has him and his best friend and partner John Sampson trying to figure out why one of Sampson’s army pals is being sentenced to death for a crime he claims he didn’t commit. This book highlights the difficulty of police work when trying to uncover a cover up but it hasn’t had any of the usual racial slurs that Cross has faced before.
The book also has many of the characters that I have grown to know and love, like nana mama who as she gets older I find my self worrying that she might not be around much longer and that makes me sad…..especially as she isn’t even real! Alex’s kids, Janie, Damon and Alex Jr are all there and seem to be shaping up to be fantastic people. We see some relatively new characters like Alex’s new love interest Detective Jamilla Hughes and we even meet some new characters like a possible love interest for the big old bear Sampson.
These books are a great read full of complicated crimes and complicated lives which with the help of Nana Mama and Sampson still manage to put a smile on my face at the end of each book. If you are looking for a great series to read then this is it!!
