    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 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.

    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    Remove the references to every movie that was every made in the last 50 years. I really don't care about what a president said or did or were he went or what his wife did. I have not checked but I think they mentioned every us president.


    What could James Patterson and David Ellis have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    I am half through the first download and the only thing I have gotten out of the story is a girl was killed and he planted a camera in her room. Give me a break and just shoot me in the head.


    Any additional comments?

    This is just not what I expect from a JP story. They spent too much time talking about how to remove airplane stops and explaining the controls of a air plane just to start a plane. And this justs goes on and on and on until you want to throw your iPod just to make him shut up.

    Story
    (29)

    Before the Five Families who so notoriously dominated U.S. organized crime for a bloody half-century, there was the one-fingered, surpassingly cunning Giuseppe Morello and his murderous coterie of brothers. Born into a life of poverty in rural Sicily, Morello became an American nightmare, pioneering the bizarre initiation rituals, imaginative protection rackets, influential underworld reigns, and Mafia wars later popularized by countless books, television shows, and movies.
