I adore reading James Patterson's Alex Cross novels. Some one gave me "Kill Alex Cross". I enjoyed it immensely, to the point that I am going through the series, from the initial book. I have not been disappointed with any of the stories.

By Lawyeraau TOP 100 REVIEWER on Dec 5 2002
Format: Mass Market Paperback
This book starts out as an intriguing thriller. A series of murders is sweeping Southeast Washington, DC. Detective Alex Cross, psychologist and expert profiler, nicknames this remorseless, stealthy, and psychopathic killer "The Weasel" and is itching to capture him.
From the beginning, the reader knows who the killer is. He is none other than urbane, British diplomat, Geoffrey Shafer, who is playing a macabre, role playing game through the internet with some of his former buddies from British intelligence. His role, appropriately enough, is "Death". The problem is that for Shafer it is no longer a game. It is an obsession.
Meanwhile, Detective Alex Cross and his long time main squeeze, Christine, have decided to get married, despite his relentless pursuit of "The Weasel". Just before they actually do so, however, this diabolical fiend creates a serious hitch in their wedding plans. Cross carries on, as "The Weasel" plays a cat and mouse game with him. There are a number of surprising moves and countermoves, though it seems that Detective Cross is always on the receiving end.
Unfortunately, while the book starts out with a bang, it sort of ends with a whimper. The author simply fails to realize the promise inherent in the book. The resolution of the issue involving his fiancee, Christine, is simply unrealistic. The final ending, however, with regards to Shafer is somewhat intriguing, as it leaves open the possibility of a sequel with this most intriguing killer.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
I you like fast-paced books such as McCrae's "Katzenjammer" or Patterson's "Roses are Red," then you'll LOVE "Pop Goes the Weasel." I did. My friends did. And everyone I know did. Alex Cross NEVER gets old and this book reads like a Hollywood movie. Highly recommended for anyone who like to have a good time.

Wow, I've gotten so far behind on my reviews already! I'm still determined to finish the Alex Cross series before the end of 2011, and I'm currently 5 books from the end. A few weeks ago I read Pop Goes the Weasel and it was certainly one of the faster reads in the series. The action in this novel is non-stop, as Patterson gives the reader a dungeons-and-dragons-meets-psycho-killer with the character of Geoffrey Shafer. A respectable business man by day, Shafer's night life consists of driving a taxi and murdering his passengers in ways determined by the roll of a die. He then gives details reports of his killings to the other members of the "Four Horsemen".

It all gets too personal when Shafer kidnaps Alex Cross's new love interest Christine, forcing Cross to drop everything and hunt down a madman. But can he find him before it's too late?

Alex Cross is one of the best detectives I have read, I have always enjoyed this series this novel left a little to be desired though the ending seemed a bit rushed and didn't really satisfy me. As I closed this book I saw myself thiking that none of this was plausible or possible. If you enjoy detective novels then this is a good read, If this is your first Patterson novel please pick something else.

By Shane Gleason on June 24 2004
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Patterson weaves a great story, but he needs a legal advisor. Since I am a trial attorney I found it bizarre to be reading a sequence about a criminal trial where the defendant has the burden of going forward with presenting evidence to prove his innocence. Did I miss something? In many criminal trials under the US system of justice the defendant presents no evidence because he is presumed innocent and has no burden of proof to prove his innocence. In this book, the only testimony given by Cross at the trial is in response to defense questioning. Ordinarily, he would be considered the government's lead witness sitting with the prosecutor all during the trial! However, take away the strange trial sequence and this spins into a very good story.

I have been reading all the Alex Cross books in order. I was impressed with this one. I especially liked the ending - there was a nice little twist to it. It is an easy book to read with nice short chapters - the only problem is you tell yourself you are just going to read one more and then before you notice you have read another 100 pages ! BEWARE.

i am an avid reader of Alex Cross *the protagonist* novels, and this one is a fast paced read, i found myself unable to put it down once i got into it although to me it does not have quite the suspense that kiss the girls had, it is an EXELLENT read
