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.
