Publisher's Summary

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 fianceé become hopelessly involved with the most memorable villain Cross has ever faced.

Book is messed up

This audiobook is all messed up - the chapters are all jumbled. It shows 62 chapters and the ending to played in chapter 15. Some chapters were repeated. Lots of skipping and breaking up. Total waste of a credit!

Disappointed

Not unabridged. Missing a lot of the book. Also it repeated more than half of the audio. Very disappointed. Good story... awesome readers, just wanted the full story... not chopped up version.

Loved the story, despite some minor discrepancies

Where does Pop Goes the Weasel rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Its definitely higher ranking than a lot of others, especially by James Patterson, I did like the idea of the storyline, however some parts I find not only far fetched but plain unbelievable. Mainly the part about Alex Cross's fiancée, it doesn't give to the plot it takes away from it, which is sad, cos the main storyline is so good, even great one might say

What other book might you compare Pop Goes the Weasel to and why?

I do not have any comparison in mind, James Patterson has a very unique way of writing although his books sometimes are fairly similar to one another at times, that is not true for this book, thank you very much.

Which character – as performed by Keith David and Roger Rees – was your favorite?

Geoffrey Shaffer is brilliantly written and very nicely thought out, I tremendously enjoyed him as the books antagonist

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

no I did not, I enjoyed it, there have been better books but this one was great anyway

This Review Needs a Title...So, I

A class C read. Pretty exciting, but not very satisfying. Our hero is in love and she gets snatched by the perp...only to show up at the end of the book (for reasons unknown, only but to the author). That said, it's a gripping, exciting novel marred only by use of some weird toys...RPG? The plot involved a supposed video game with real players on many continents. The cast included the usual, but nana moma and the kids made cameo appearances. OK, I'll read another Alex Cross novel.

Abridged

This is actually about 4 hours long. It is ABRIDGED- should have caught it before purchasing but still disappointed. Why even do abridged books...

Meh...

It was ok. A lot of mushy, sensitive, romantic parts. I'm just not that kind of gal. The previous stories were good so I'm starting the next book but if it's going to be all mushy again, I may have to find something else.

The 4 horsemen are brilliant

I really loved the story of the four horsemen, but the trial seemed to drag on a little bit. All in all it was a great book that left an opening for the next novel.

Interesting but not my favorite Cross novel

I really loved the story of the four horsemen, but the trial seemed to drag on a little bit. All in all it was a great book that left an opening for the next novel.
