I read it this week at work and loved it. I just bought the next book in the series and then I will be caught up on his series. I really enjoyed this book a lot and was surprised by the ending, Few books do that to me. ( )

Somebody is murdering Hollywood's A-list. Mary Smith is targeting Hollywood stars and power brokers, and she is getting better every time.

I liked this story. I liked the less action more research in this novel. I also like the "voice" of Mary Smith. The plot was deceptively simple yet complex. Yet it had me guessing until the end. It was also kind of sad. Talked to loneliness and over worked underappreciated single mother's who need help. As a single mother I can understand the feeling though not the result. I was sure there was more to it than met the eye and I was correct ( )

Patterson's Alex Cross novels are like the very tastiest junk food (and I love junk food). His characters are human and well formed and his plots, while not the most complicated, are meaty enough. Even his short chapter structure makes it easy reading. Mary Mary is quintessential. A serial killer starts in New York, moves to LA and sends emails describing each kill. The emails are from Mary Smith. ( )

Mary Mary: Patterson started off telling me about a nasty murder with a few clues. Then he left me and wandered away telling me about the detective’s nasty divorce and his children.
I gave it up.
Mr Patterson, if I wanted Mills and Boon, that’s what I would buy. Can I have my money back, please? ( )

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

Book description
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.
