Publisher's 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.

    "Hmmmm"

    Enjoyed the book / love the Cross series. Narrators make the book's characters come alive.

    "Did Not Disappoint"

    Patterson worked his magic again by giving readers a great plot with a surprise twist at the end. Mary, Mary holds your attention from beginning to end. I recommend this book highly!

    To the slight negative, I would have preferred either a better romantic storyline, or none at all - It did nothing for me or for the story.

    "Just OK"

    This just didn't quite do it for me. This was my first venture into an Alex Cross book and I found this particular one to be rather 'blah'. Sure, it keeps you guessing, but in the end, you ask 'who cares'? I give 3 stars because it *did* entertain me, but it just never really came together for me.

    "Didn't see it coming"

    I thoroughly enjoyed this listen. I never saw the end coming. Thought the naration was excellent in capturing the various characters. A most captivating story.

    "Page Turner"

    As usual, Patterson is good for a page-turner. One identifies with his hero Alex Cross in all of these novels. Great for a long plane trip or a vacation by the pool. Don't bother if you are looking for some literature to sharpen your brain.

    "Patterson's Great!"

    This was a very good listen! I wasn't put off by the "Romance" because it was a very small part of the book. Usually, I can figure out the end of a "who dunnit" but this one took me by total surprise. I'm sure the next Alex Cross novel will answer most of the questions I had at the end. Download....you won't be disappointed!

    "Another Alex Cross Thriller"

    I am a die hard Patterson/Cross follower and this is up there with my favorites. I really couldn't pick a definite favorite, as I truly enjoy them all. This one, though, was one that kept me totally involved, not wanting to turn it off. I have since downloaded another one and will continue. I am not sure who I enjoy more, the writing of Patterson or the actions of Cross - same/same.
