In September, Cross makes his big-screen debut when Paramount releases Kiss the Girls, starring Morgan Freeman. There will be a huge advertising and publicity push for the movie, and Warner Books will release a paperback tie-in edition.
In October, Warner Books publishes the paperback edition of Jack & Jill -- Patterson's most successful Cross hardcover to date, with more than 350,000 copies sold. Warner will mount an extensive television and print advertising campaign.
And then, in November, it's time for the main event: Cat & Mouse. James Patterson delivers his best Alex Cross novel yet -- and your blockbuster thriller for Christmas 1997.
Who is the cat? And who is the mouse? In this top-of-the-line shocker, Patterson pulls out all the stops -- and delivers more page-turning excitement than a bookshelf of ordinary thrillers.
