Book Description

Oct. 1 2006 Alex Cross
Somebody is murdering Hollywood's A-list. Her calling card: "You've got mail." On a family vacation, FBI agent Alex Cross is asked to investigate the shooting of a top actress and an e-mail sent to the Los Angeles Times with shocking details about the murder, signed Mary Smith. More killings and more e-mails follow, and Mary Smith is getting better every time. To hunt down this merciless killer of Tinseltown's elite, Cross must navigate a world where the stars sip San Pellegrino at the Ivy as hopefuls hover around studio gates with 8 X 10 glossies. And when the case catapults into blockbuster proportions, Cross and the LAPD scramble to find a pattern-before Mary sends one more chilling update.

Product Description

From Booklist

Last seen in London Bridges (2004) chasing a terrorist, Washington, D.C., PD detective turned FBI agent Alex Cross is enjoying a much-needed vacation at Disneyland with his family when he's called in by the FBI to consult with the LAPD on a high-profile murder case. A-list actress Antonia Schifman has been slain, her face so badly cut up that she's almost unrecognizable. The murder isn't random; an L.A. Times gossip columnist has received a series of e-mails from a woman named Mary Smith, taking responsibility for the killing of Antonia, her chauffeur, and a well-known female movie producer. Cross studies the e-mails, which make reference to Mary's ordinary appearance and her fixation on the perfect families, particularly the children, of both women. When another prominent woman is slain, Cross is sucked into the case full time, jeopardizing the outcome of the custody battle he's involved in over his youngest son. As Cross studies the e-mails and patterns of the killer, he realizes he can't be certain of anything, even the gender of Mary Smith. The thrills in Patterson's latest lead to a truly unexpected, electrifying climax. Kristine Huntley

Wow!! James Patterson never ceases to amaze me.

I loved the plot and I am so glad that there are still more Alex Cross mysteries for me to read.

Thank you, Mr. Patterson.

I adore reading James Patterson's Alex Cross novels. Some one gave me "Kill Alex Cross". I enjoyed it immensely, to the point that I am going through the series, from the initial book. I have not been disappointed with any of the stories.

2.0 out of 5 stars Clever plot idea but... April 27 2013
By Pat the cat TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Hardcover
This is my 2nd book in the Alex Cross series. In this novel, the FBI agent/psychologist helps to chase a serial killer in LA who targets famous actresses. I have mixed feelings about this thriller. The plot is clever but the story is told in a very clinical fashion and about half the book is about the guilt the FBI agent feels about being too preoccupied by his work and neglecting his personal life and family. If you're a fan of the hero than you'll probably like this novel. Personally, it left me indifferent because the book lacks passion. The police investigation is only sketched out at best as the story leaps along, which kills the suspense and logic. The ending is rather odd -- how did the serial killer know where Cross was going and how/why did he take along the journalist? There are a few loose ends too... I was confused by the chapters featuring the real Mary Smith (Was she real? what happens after the outing at Disneyland?) and what was the point of the nagging journalist? So, since I'm not a Cross fan, I give it 2.5 stars out of five (not quite bad but pretty close!).

4.0 out of 5 stars James Patterson is back in form! Nov. 2 2008
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Top females on Hollywood's A-list are being murdered in a particularly vicious manner. The details of each killing make it clear that the motives are entirely personal. After each killing (and in one case almost during the killing itself), the murderer sends an e-mail to a Hollywood entertainment writer gloating about the murder and virtually daring the police to come and get her. Yes, you read that correctly ... "HER"! The e-mails are all signed "Mary Smith"! Top FBI Agent Alex Cross, much to his chagrin and to the disappointment of his children and his long-suffering grandmother, is pulled away from a well-deserved Disneyland holiday with his family and ordered to act as a consultant to the LAPD on the case.

Admittedly, there's nothing about "Mary, Mary" that will elevate it beyond the ranks of enjoyable brain candy thriller to the status of literature. But it is worth noting that unlike the outrageously weak fare that we suffered through in "London Bridges", "Mary, Mary" seems to be a long awaited return to the quality of thriller that justifiably vaulted James Patterson onto best seller lists around the world. We're treated to an enjoyable plot that moves along with compelling page-turning speed. Alex Cross, in the manner of Inspector Rebus, Harry Bosch and all of the other loner cops in mystery and thriller literature successfully marches to the rhythm of his own drummer. We are also witness to some realistic character development as we watch the relationship with his current squeeze, Jamilla, go down in flames and we hurt with him as he is hauled into a nasty court custody battle for his beloved son, Alex. And our heart aches as Patterson gives us a wrenching example of the trials of a complete mental breakdown!

Literature? No. Brain Candy? Yes. Memorable? Not particularly. Enjoyable? Absolutely! Highly recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not a dull moment July 2 2007
By Toni Osborne TOP 100 REVIEWER
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I found this an amazing thriller, again a Patterson book full of twists and turns. The story and the characters are outstanding, the pace is fast and unpredictable, not a dull moment, and I truly enjoy this book and couldn’t put it down.
