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.

Must Read!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Definitely. Granted some of the tactics and thought process of the LEOs and Dr. Cross was insane that didn't take away from the enjoyment of the book. This story was incredible and the narration was awesome. I found myself sitting in the car after I'd arrived at my destination because I couldn't stop listening. Usually I can figure out the ending but man was I totally wrong with this one. You have to listen to this book!

What other book might you compare Mary, Mary to and why?

I don't like comparing books but I would say you have to read the series to get a full understanding of Dr. Alex Cross.

Have you listened to any of the narrators’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I don't recall. It doesn't matter to me who narrates the book or if it's the same narrator from other books. I judge them on the book I'm listening too.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Several. Crazy Christine moved me to anger. Jam moved me to feel sorry for Dr. Cross and the ending moved me to an OMG moment because I didn't expect it at all.

Any additional comments?

Great book!
