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.

Quotes & Awards

  • “It features Alex Cross, one of the best heroes in the genre.”

    Independent on Sunday

  • “You won’t be able to put down James Patterson’s number one bestseller Mary, Mary. Full of edge-of-your-seat suspense, you’ll be dying to discover why somebody is murdering Hollywood’s A-List.”

    OK magazine (Australia)

  • “The thrills in Patterson’s latest lead to a truly unexpected, electrifying climax.”


  • “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’ concern for the well-being of his own family is chillingly juxtaposed with the murderer’s messages about raising children.”
