Alex Cross number 11. Alex is again on holiday when he gets a phone call yet again as there has been a murder of a famous actress. He leaves his family and goes to investigate the murder and then gets caught up in the whole 'Mary Smith' case. Mary emails a journalist with details of the crimes that she has committed and where to find the bodies. Alex is working alongside the LAPD to try to solve the case but its proving to be one of his more difficult cases.
Meanwhile, whilst Alex leaves his holiday to investigate the murder of the first victim, Christine - little Alex's mum turns up and takes him away. A court case ensues, what is going on with her?
All in all, another typical Cross book. 4/5 for me. I am very biased though as I love Patterson books! ( )

The mystery element in this Alex Cross novel was interesting.  I enjoyed the twists and turns and the characters were interesting.  The main thing that really slowed down the flow of the book was Alex's chaotic personal life.  If Patterson had cut this drama in half, it would have been enough to build Alex's character and still keep the mystery flowing.  Overall, though, I enjoyed this one.

As a Patterson fan, I couldn't go wrong with this fast read. At one point I did think the book was finished with the story, rather abruptly, but, pleased to find out that I hadn't reached the end yet, All I am saying. ( )

Pretty bad Alex Cross book. Not really worth it, and I hope this isn't the decline of the series as a whole. ( )

My favorite in this series so far. 5 stars. Mysterious, action packed and it didn't fall into all the clichés that was in every other Alex Cross book so far! What a relief to read a book in this series that broke away from the mold. I hope this series keeps evolving and not become predictable.

And, I have to say.... WHAT is up with Christine?!?!?!?!?!?!?

I can't wait to read more.

This one is for my buds-Johnny, Frankie, Ned, Jim and Jim, Steve, Mike, Tom, and Tom, Merrill, David, Peter, B.J., Del, Hal, Ron, Mickey and Bobby, Joe, Art.

And it's for Mary Jordan, who makes it all work somehow, and who couldn't be more different from the notorious Mary, Mary.
