Mary, Mary, Paperback
4 out of 5 (1 rating)


Somebody is intent on murdering Hollywood's A-list.

A well-known actress has been shot outside her Beverly Hills home.

Shortly afterwards, the Los Angeles Times receives an email describing the murder in vivid detail.

It is signed Mary Smith. More killings and emails follow - the victims are all major Hollywood players.

Is it the work of an obsessed fan or a spurned actor, or is it part of something far more terrifying?

As the case grows to blockbuster proportions, Washington, DC, FBI agent Alex Cross and the LAPD scramble to find a pattern before Mary can send another chilling update.

Review by

There's not much new about Mary, Mary which is more blessing than curse. Patterson's narrative style is very popular, as is the Alex Cross character arc and in Mary, Mary the development of Alex Cross' character is as important as the serial killing that fills the other half of the book. It remains interesting throughout, smartly alternating and entwining the two sides of Cross, with some story elements coming to fruition that have been playing slowly across the whole series so far. Ideally suited to those reading the Cross novels in sequence, Mary, Mary is a solid entry in the series and is recommended reading.
