Description
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.

      • premium: True
      • source: AudioFile Magazine
      • content: In the eleventh in Patterson's series, FBI Specialist Alex Cross's family vacation at Disneyland is interrupted by two unconnected events: His ex-wife abruptly gains custody of their young son and a shocking series of Hollywood murders comes to light. The use of three readers doesn't add clarity to this puzzle, except that Melissa Leo, the sole female narrator, delivers the murderer's emails with an acidic edge. Peter J. Fernandez and Michael Louis Wells portray Alex Cross and the whirlwind of events that compel him to help the LAPD with the celebrity murder cases. Cross's concern for the well-being of his own family is chillingly juxtaposed with the murderer's messages about raising children. N.M.C. (c) AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine

        October 1, 2005
        In Patterson's 11th Alex Cross thriller (after "London Bridges"), the FBI agent is asked to investigate a serial killer who targets women with two things in common: they're all connected to Hollywood studios, and they're all the mothers of young children. In each crime, the killer leaves behind three stickers with the letters A, A, and B; shortly thereafter, a "Los Angeles Times "entertainment columnist receives an email addressed to the victim with an explanation of how she was stalked and murdered. A self-styled "Storyteller," the killer signs these gripping messages with the name "Mary Smith." But is the killer a man or a woman? And has the "story" spun out of control? Complicating the investigation are Alex's own family problems: he's about to lose a custody battle over his youngest son, his other children are being neglected, and his relationship with a female police inspector is at risk. Though lacking the richness and complexity of other psychological thrillers, e.g., Dennis Lehane's "Shutter Island", 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. Recommended for popular fiction collections. [See Prepub Alert, "LJ" 7/05.] -Ronnie H. Terpening, Univ. of Arizona, Tucson
