Thank you! Archly improbable multiple psychokiller tale featuring Patterson's dignified Washington, D. Before he dies or even suffers any of the disease's ghastly symptoms , he wants to avenge himself on Cross, who helped capture him. After creeping into the Cross family cellar and ominously rifling the laundry, Soneji, who we learn developed a psychotic fixation with trains when he was denied a Lionel set as a child, departs on a series of cinematic massacres along Amtrak Metroliner stops, leaving drops of Cross's blood as clues.

Soneji blames Cross for the time he has spent in jail for his crimes and wants to punish him. First, however, Soneji want to commit crimes he knows will make him famous long after he dies. While Cross tries to find Soneji and stop his crime spree, he finds himself pulled into another case, the case of Mr. Smith, a cruel and ruthless serial killer. Cat and Mouse is an exciting novel of mystery and crime that will please even new readers to the Cross series. Alex Cross is called to Union Station where someone is shooting people sniper style. Before arriving, Cross gets a phone call from Gary Soneji.
In London the killer dubbed Mr. Smith by the press is conducting a live autopsy. Smith explains to his victim what he will be feeling and that he envies his victim. At union station, Soneji opens fire on the crowd with a rifle. Cross and Sampson receive a call from Soneji letting him know where he is. Cross was expecting Kyle Craig, who had faxed Cross a letter asking for help with the Mr. Smith case.
