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.
