Mistress

By James Patterson, David Ellis (Mass Market, 2014)
James Patterson's scariest, sexiest stand-alone thriller since The Quickie.

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 would do anything for.

When Diana's body is found outside her apartment, her death is ruled a suicide. But Ben knows that the vivacious girl he loved would never have killed herself. His infatuation drives him on a hunt for the truth, and he soon discovers that the woman he pined for was hiding a dangerous double life. To her family, she was a sweet Midwesterner who helped her brother get clean. Yet in Washington, D.C., she was a manipulative go-getter who used her sexual prowess to get what she wanted. And now Ben is convinced that someone is out to stop him from uncovering the secrets behind Diana's illicit affairs.

In his scariest and sexiest thriller since The Quickie, James Patterson plunges into the depths of a mind tortured by paranoia and obsession, on a relentless chase through a world of danger and deceit.
