Publisher's Summary

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.

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.

    "He mailed this one in! Listened for 3 hours Yuk."
    What did you like best about Mistress? What did you like least?

    The main character whines and is not at all believable. The story takes too long to evolve


    Would you ever listen to anything by James Patterson and David Ellis again?

    Not anymore the last several are just being published because of his name not the caliber of the writing


    What didn’t you like about Kevin T. Collins’s performance?

    He doesn't sound like the character portrayed (at least in my opinion)


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    Nope!


    Any additional comments?

    Enough Patterson

    "OMG OMG stick a needle in your eye"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Anyone that is looking to replace a sleeping pill


    What did you like best about this story?

    The story itself seem to be good. But the main person kept going back to parts of old movies. OMG I wanted to to kill him just to end the one going bits from other movies


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    His tones were ok, but the whole thing just drag on. So it made his voice like nails on a blackboard


    What character would you cut from Mistress?

    none


    Any additional comments?

    I have always love James patterson, I have read all this books with the exception of the science ones. I cannt wait for the next Private. I hate I wasted a credit on this book. I try to listen to most of it with the hope it would get better. THANK GOD I CAN RETURN IT. THANK GOD.

    "disappointing"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    This book has a flow that is flippant and grates on the nerves; it becomes hard to listen to. I do not want to have to work at listening to a book which is what one must do with this writing.


    If you’ve listened to books by James Patterson and David Ellis before, how does this one compare?

    Very disappointing.


    Which character – as performed by Kevin T. Collins – was your favorite?

    none


    Could you see Mistress being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    I could not see this being made into a movie.

    None of the characters were interesting

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

    A different story


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

    Written a good book. The adhd was annoying as hell.


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    The narrator did a good job but didn't have much to work with.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Mistress?

    ALL


    Any additional comments?

    I threw my ipod across the room in frustration from listening to this book. If this would have been my first JP book, it would have been my last. Maybe Patterson should try writing his own books again instead of using others.

    "Love it! I GOT all the references..."
    If you could sum up Mistress in three words, what would they be?

    Brilliant, inventive and funny


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    The character of Ben is this fun loving, interesting and very brilliant guy, that really does not realize that he is fun loving, interesting and very brilliant.


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    The narrations was okay, I did not care for the music and sound effects


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    My thoughts are keeping me thinking...


    Any additional comments?

    I enjoyed this book immensely. The story is will told (I did not need the sound effects) I travelled with Ben in and out of the present moment to the past, and had fun with his superficial thoughts and I GOT all the references, (made me feel smart) and the references I didn't get, he explained them... It was a fun ride/read.

    "Narrator drops an "i" bomb"

    This narrator is IRRITATING, INCOMPETENT and INEPT.

    The blame rests with you, Patterson. Listen to your chosen narrators. This loyal reader and listener is ticked.
