Una mano spietata, che si diverte a descrivere le proprie gesta in agghiaccianti e-mail a un giornalista del Los Angeles Times firmandosi Mary Smith, sta uccidendo in maniera efferata attrici madri di famiglia. Una mano che non sembra avere alcuna intenzione di fermarsi. Ma chi è veramente Mary Smith: una fan ossessionata? Un'attrice fallita? O c'è dietro qualcosa di ben più terribile? E soprattutto, si tratta davvero di una donna, come molti indizi sembrano indicare, oppure ha ragione l'intuito da profiler di Cross, che lo porterebbe a scartare questa ipotesi? Mentre gli omicidi si susseguono, sempre più violenti, e sorgono tensioni e contrasti tra l'FBI e il Dipartimento di polizia di Los Angeles, il detective Alex Cross rischia di perdere una delle partite più difficili della sua carriera investigativa

These are such easy books to read. Short, choppy chapters mean you can pick it up any time you have a minute spare and knock off a few pages. No need to sit down quietly and concentrate - Patterson does all the work and the reader just has to enjoy. Strangely for me I have found myself reading the Al Leggi tutto
This Alex Cross book is suspenseful. It keeps you guessing throughout! I don’t think I have ever read a book where I debated whether it was a man or woman in my life. I really enjoyed the psychological aspect of this one since there was more emphasis on the psychology of the perp than some of the ot Leggi tutto
FBI Agent Alex Cross was on a well-deserved holiday with his family in Los Angeles when he was called into a horrific murder case. The killer was taking out Hollywood actresses one after the other. Emails were being sent to a newspaper editor telling of the killings in graphic detail and signing the Leggi tutto
I swore off all Patterson books years ago after the little girl who sprouted wings, but when I saw a friend's review of this one recently, I decided to give him another chance. The Alex Cross series has been pretty consistent over the years, and this one came through as well with a solid story. I d
Book 11 in the Alex Cross series. First published 2005. I have to admit that this book was a bit of a step up from the last Alex Cross book I read ‘London Bridges’ which I struggled to give two stars to. All the usual Patterson scenarios, homicidal maniac, who calls herself Mary Smith, short sharp cha Leggi tutto
4.5 stars!! This was a great one. Fantastic and surprising plot and the ending was perfect, couldn´t have been any better :)
Patterson is back on track with this addition to the Alex Cross series. Detective-turned-FBI-Agent Cross is drawn in a suspected case of a female serial killer which is unique. Each of the victims is tied to the movie industry. Besides leaving trademark stickers with the letters A or B on them, Mary Leggi tutto
Mary Mary is an Alex Cross novel, and that normally would be a good thing, except that it isn't. Patterson started writing Cross novels in 1992, with Along Came a Spider, which instituted the forumla of pitting Alex against this week's serial killer. Along Came a Spider pitted Cross, a psychiatrist
4.5! I am such a huge Alex Cross fan! This book was right up to par with the others in this series! Sad to see how quickly things change in Alex's love life or life in general! I am glad he has such diabolical cases to solve! This one is no different!
This was a second book included in my Kindle edition of Murder House. Like Murder House it was a quick , decent read. Mary, Mary is one of the Alex Cross series. There is a serial killer loose in Hollywood, while Alex is trying to take a family vacation, and simultaneously trying to keep custody of
