Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Somebody is murdering Hollywood's A list.

FBI agent Alex Cross is on vacation when he gets a call from the Director. An actress has been shot outside her home in Beverly Hills. Afterward, an editor for the Los Angeles Times receives an e-mail recounting the murder in shocking detail, signed Mary Smith. Her calling card.

The authorities fear this is only the beginning. Mary Smith is targeting Hollywood stars and power brokers, and she is getting better every time.

This case is like nothing Alex has ever confronted before. Could this be the plan of an obsessed fan or a spurned actor, or is it part of something much more terrifying? And how could a woman be capable of these vicious crimes?

To track a merciless killer, Alex navigates a world where the stars sip San Pellegrino at the Ivy as hopefuls hover around studio gates armed with 8 X 10 glossies. Members of the A-list fear they're next on Mary's list, and Cross and the LAPD scramble to find a pattern before Mary can send one more chilling update.

Review:

"Certainly not the worst of Patterson's clueless mysteries, but still another likely candidate to be filmed as 'a big, dopey thriller based on a dopey bestseller.'" Kirkus Reviews

Review:

"...Patterson's story, told in 121 brief chapters, flows effortlessly and with mounting suspense to its final, shocking twist; a fascinating psycho will captivate the author's many fans." Library Journal

Review:

"[Patterson's] hypnotic three-or-four-pages-to-a-chapter pace will keep you up reading far into the night...Cross is at his best when he's on the trail of nasty mass murderers, and that's who he's after here — with a great plot twist." Fort Worth Star-Telegram

Review:

"Cross returns to top form in this twisty thriller that delivers on everything it promises and then some..." Providence Journal

Review:

"The thrills in Patterson's latest lead to a truly unexpected, electrifying climax." Booklist

Review:

"As gripping as all of Patterson's stories, Mary, Mary takes its place alongside his best." BookReporter.com

Synopsis:

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.
