Mistress by James Patterson and David Ellis

Book Description:

Published: August 5, 2013

Ben isn’t like most people. Unable to control his racing thoughts, he’s a man consumed by his obsessions: movies, motorcycles, presidential trivia-and Diana Hotchkiss, a beautiful woman Ben knows he can never have. When Diana is found dead outside her apartment, Ben’s infatuation drives him on a hunt to find out what happened to the love of his life. Ben soon discovers that the woman he pined for was hiding a shocking double life. And now someone is out to stop Ben from uncovering the truth about Diana’s illicit affairs. In his most heart-pumping thriller yet, James Patterson plunges us into the depths of a mind tortured by paranoia and obsession, on an action-packed chase through a world of danger and deceit.

Review –

The character of Ben Casper is more likely to go off on a tangent about scenes, dialogue and his favorite actors from the movies, or list trivia of all the presidents. I believe he does this to stay sane. When he was eight his father killed his mother and blamed it on him (later, much later-we find out why) and all these years he has hated his father.

He doesn’t have a relationship with a female now or ever that we can discern, but he would love to have one with Diana Hotchkiss, whom he finds out wasn’t the person he thought her to be. 

The story is full of intrigue, blackmail, assassins, Russians, Chinese, secrets, deception and edge of the seat action.

I thoroughly enjoyed it and highly recommend it if you like an action-packed mystery.
