Pop Goes the Weasel (Alex Cross, 5) by James Patterson

Likened to a young Muhammad Ali, Alex Cross, the Porsche-driving profiler, doctor, detective, and father of two has seen his fair share of vicious killers. From a bloodthirsty butcher who came after his family (Cat and Mouse) to a devilish duo working cross-country (Kiss the Girls), Cross has managed to outmaneuver all of his enemies. Until he meets the Weasel. A series of killings in the forgotten, crime-infested ghettos of southeast D.C. has sent Cross and his 69 250-pound partner, John Sampson, in search of the Jane Doe killer. However, their racist, tyrannical boss George Pitman orders them to stay out of the southeast and investigate the high-profile murder of a wealthy white man. Cross already has suspicions that the murders are linked, but when Sampsons ex turns up in an abandoned southeast warehouse kicked to death, the two detectives carry on with their original investigation. Meanwhile, Crosss longtime love, Christine (Cat and Mouse), has taken prominence in his life, and it looks as if the two will finally get hitched--with one glitch: Cross puts everything he loves in jeopardy as he obsessively goes after the Weasel. Akin to a slick Hollywood action flick, Pop Goes the Weasel doesnt have time for meaningful character development or thoughtful moral analysis. And it doesnt need to. Its winning formula is based on short scenes (chapters average about 3 pages), addictive plot progression, and mean dialogue: Sampson sighed and said, I think her tongue is stapled inside the other girl. Im pretty sure thats it, Alex. The Weasel stapled them together. I looked at the two girls and shook my head. I dont think so. A staple, even a surgical one, would come apart on the tongues surface.... Crazy glue would work.--Rebekah Warren
