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.

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.

Kind of dull

I was a pretty big fan of Patterson's previous Cross novels but this one was pretty bad. I'd agree with the other reviews; kind of dull, all over the place, more about little Alex (if you are familiar with the other books) then the murder. And Cross doesn't really do any real investigative work. . . nothing. I suppose if you've read all the other ones you will have to read this one too but be warned. Pretty disappointing.
