Pop Goes the Weasel
Alex Cross Series # 5

by James Patterson
Read by Keith David and Roger Rees

      When Alex Cross faces a deadly nemesis, he discovers getting his hands on the sick maniac is a matter of diplomatic immunity. Geoffrey Shafer is a British diplomat with a toxic mind. He lives a dual, deadly life based on a computer game called the 4 Horsemen and a pair of dice. Itís absolutely frightening. Before Cross and his partner discover who Shafer is, they dub him "The Weasel." Soon they find out he isnít alone, and Cross has reason to fear for the safety of his new girlfriend. Itís a case of quick thinking, cautious planning, and a slew of suspenseful moments.

In Hachette Audioís abridged re-visit of Pop Goes the Weasel, listeners witness the strengths and weakness of those determined to bring down a sick and deadly mind. It's one wild taxi ride you wonít soon forget. Iíve heard many mention Patterson has a winning formula. I have to agree. The intensity and revelations are non-stop.

The audio version is read by Keith David and Roger Rees. Amazing read. Intense listen. Remember your head phones!
