Four Blind Mice is classic Patterson. Whilst Alex Cross is about to focus on romance with his newfound lady Jamilla, a friend-of-a-friend is sitting on death row, having been convicted of a gruesome murder in which three women were killed and their bodies painted blue. Naturally, Alex can’t leave it alone and decides as usual to take on one more case…


A fairly exciting read, in which we also see inside the minds of those who actually did the crime. Knowing who is guilty before the end is one of those methods of crime fiction writing I’m never quite sure about, but Patterson makes it work in a genuinely good novel.
