Alex Cross is back, to face his most complex and formidable villain yet, a man known as The Weasel, who threatens to destroy all Alex holds dear. Things are looking great for Alex Cross. He is in love with a very special woman and even a series of ghastly murders he's investigating can't diminish his happiness. Cross's pursuit of the killer quickly produces a suspect- a British diplomat named Geoffrey Shaffer. However, proving that Shaffer is the murderer is a difficult challenge. The diplomat engages in a brilliant series of surprising counter moves, in court and out, and Cross and his fiancee become the targets of a deadly cabal of killers masterminded by Shaffer. Pop!Goes the Weaselis James Patterson at the peak of his power. It's his most dynamic and powerful psychological thriller to date. Here is a villain no reader will forget, a love story of great tenderness, and a plot of relentless suspense and heart pounding pace. Booksellers and readers will soon discover why James Patterson is at the very top of his field and one of the finest suspense writers of his time.

Cross is attempting to catch Death, the revolting, sadistic killer know as Geoffrey Shaefer who kills his victims by playing a role playing game called the Four Horsemen. A well done suspense thriller but some implausible situations deter from the plot such as the disappearance of Christine which goes on far too long before we find out what happened. A somewhat rushed and very unusual ending which may well extend to the next novel.

Good book, but not one of the better ones in the series. A part of the book occurs in court, so it takes away from the parts that I like best in the series; being in the mind of the killers.

Though I've read and enjoyed a number of Patterson?s books, his Alex Cross novels are by far my favorite. Just when you think his villain ? and Cross? latest nemesis ?can?t get any more evil, psychotic or complex, Patterson introduces another chilling antagonist to rival all previous deviants. Pop Goes The Weasel is a fast-paced book I ignored burning eyes to finish late into the night... a great addition to the Alex Cross collection.
