Join Mystery Guild for a great deal on MARY, MARY
The bestselling author and mastermind behind the Alex Cross chillers—from Along Came a Spider to London Bridges—delivers another tale of unstoppable action and unexpected twists—elements we love about James Patterson’s novels.
For Alex Cross, there’s no vacation from murder. His family trip to Los Angeles is cut short when he’s asked to join the hunt for a brutal killer who’s snuffing out Hollywood’s hottest players.
It begins when producer Patrice Bennett is shot to death in the balcony of a movie theater. Then three-time Academy Award winner Antonia Schifman is murdered outside her Beverly Hills home—her face mauled beyond recognition. After each slaying, the killer sends an e-mail describing the murder in grisly detail—and promising more mayhem—to the entertainment editor of the L.A. Times. The e-mails are signed “Mary Smith.” This Tinseltown terror is crossing names off the Hollywood A-list faster than you can yell “action!” and the LAPD and FBI are scrambling to determine when Mary will strike again. Now, it’s up to Alex to discover if Mary is a celebrity stalker, an actor gone bad or part of a chilling conspiracy. Whatever the case, Alex isn’t expecting a happy Hollywood ending…. Explicit violence.
