James Patterson uses a first person narrative throughout Four Blind Mice, switching between the main characters as the story unfolds. In the beginning, the narrative is from the perspective of the character Alex Cross. Since Alex is a detective, and a psychologist, Patterson uses the opportunity to delve into a more internalized style of narrative, where Alex is examining his own motives for carrying on the employment that keeps him away from his family for extended periods, and forces him to delve into the minds of some of the most twisted criminals in the country.
