Summary:

FBI agent Alex Cross is on vacation with his family at Disneyland when he gets a call from the Director. A well-known actress was shot outside her home in Beverly Hills. Shortly afterward, an editor for the Los Angeles Times receives an e-mail describing the murder in vivid detail. Alex quickly learns that this is not an isolated incident. The killer, known as Mary Smith, has done this before and plans to kill again. Right from the beginning, this case is like nothing Alex has ever confronted. Is this the plan of an obsessed fan or a spurned actor, or is it part of something much more frightening? And particularly baffling, how could a woman be capable of these vicious crimes? Members of Hollywood's A-list fear they're next on Mary's list, and the case grows by blockbuster proportions as the LAPD and FBI scramble to find a pattern before Mary can send one more chilling update. Filled with the ruthless and shocking twists that make his fans hunger for more, Mary, Mary is James Patterson's most sophisticated thriller yet.

    It was very good and I like the psychological analysis off-the-wall killer. plus the balance between personal and professional lives however just wasn't the bad I was looking for.

  • Scott E

    By far my favorite of the Alex Cross series! The concept for this book is absolutely amazing! If you don’t believe me, go out and get it and read it yourself! This one so far takes the cake as my favorite book in the Alex Cross series!

    As with all of the "Cross" Books, this one is good and will catch your interest. It took me a while onger than usual to get into it.

  • Betty

    I really enjoyed this book. It took me awhile to figure out who the killer actually was. For me it kept me listening intently.

  • Doda

    I enjoyed this book - my first for Alex Cross character. Enjoyed the personal side and the twist ending was just my cup of tea. Thank you - James.

  • Kim

    Not Patterson's best. Very hum drum and slow. I give it a "C" at best.

  • Kat

    I thoroughly enjoyed this book. I enjoyed the three individuals doing the reading. I just love the Alex Cross character. It was a perfect pace and you always knew who you were listing to. Highly recommend!

  • Bruce Curson

    The book started very slow and picked up a bit in the middle. There is much better material out there than this. The only redeeming feature was that it was a rather short read (7 CDs).

  • Susan

    I don't think there is anything that Patterson writes that I haven't loved.

  • Don Weesner

    I WAS VERY DISAPPOINTED IN THIS BOOK. 80% WAS ABOUT ALEX'S HOME LIFE & HOME PROBLEMS. NOT IN KEEPING WITH HIS PAST STYLE. I HOPE HE LOOKS AT REVIEWS AND GOES BACK TO HIS PAST WRITTINGS. I CANNOT RECOMMEND THIS BOOK.
