Detective Alex Cross is back, and he’s in love. Unfortunately, a series of chilling murders in Washington intervenes, with a plot twist you will never forget. Cross’ ingenious pursuit of the quirky killer produces a suspect, a British diplomat named Geoffrey Shafer. But proving that Shafer is the murderer becomes a difficult and deadly task. As the diplomat engages in a brilliant series of surprising countermoves, both in and out of the courtroom, Cross and his fiancée become hopelessly involved with the most memorable villain Cross has ever faced.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Terror and suspense that grab the reader and won’t let go. Just try running away from this one.”

    Ed McBain, New York Times bestselling author

  • “Patterson’s well-oiled suspense machine grinds away with solid precision.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “Once again, James Patterson proves that he's more than capable of conceiving engaging, cunning stories that transcend the serial killer subgenre. Pop Goes the Weasel works as an intense character portrait that will leave readers moved and electrified.”

    Tom Piccirilli

  • “Brilliantly terrifying…so exciting I had to stay up all night to finish it.”

    Daily Mail

  • “Patterson’s best book to date…The book is impossible to put down. Patterson has another guaranteed bestseller on his hands, and fans will be clamoring for the next Alex Cross adventure.”

    Library Journal

  • “Akin to a slick Hollywood action flick, Pop Goes the Weasel doesn’t have time for meaningful character development or thoughtful moral analysis. And it doesn’t need to. Its winning formula is based on short scenes, addictive plot progression, and mean dialogue.”

    Amazon.com, editorial review

  • “Roger Rees’ crisp, clear voice represents the psychopathic killer, Shafer, and his role-playing game cronies; Keith David’s warm tones bring Alex Cross, his family, and police companions to the fore…Replete with sound effects and music that match the scenes perfectly, Patterson’s tale of murder and mayhem will ensnare listeners until its horrifying end.”

    AudioFile

  • “Kinky mayhem, a cartoonish villain, regular glimpses of the kindly Cross caring for his loved ones, and an ending that spells a sequel: Patterson’s fans couldn’t ask for more.”

    Kirkus Reviews

  • A New York Times bestseller
  • A USA Today bestseller

    " A really good book! Was exciting and liked the writing style. The only thing for me to lose a star is the rushed ending. Also not complete closure on all of the characters in the end. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Babs | 8/2/2011

    " Of all the Patterson books this was my least favorite. The ending didn't lend itself to closure and did not seem to be one that would continue either. However, Dr. Cross is one of my favorite characters... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rita | 7/24/2011

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Angela | 5/12/2011

    " Fast moving with a courtroom scene at the end. Though I am starting to think that Alex Cross should have a sign around his neck telling people to stay away, anyone who knows him could be in serious trouble. And this is only the 5th book. Fun, easy read. "
