Dodge City, Kansas, is a place of legend. The town that started as a small military site exploded with the coming of the railroad, cattle drives, eager miners, settlers, and various entrepreneurs passing through to populate the expanding West. Before long Dodge City's streets were lined with saloons and brothels, and its populace was thick with gunmen, horse thieves, and desperadoes of every sort. By the 1870s Dodge City was known as the most violent and turbulent town in the West.

This isn't the same old rehash of Wyatt Earp and the OK Corral. This is a story telling of the lawmen of the Wild West, both the good and the bad. Not everyone is a sinner or a saint but mostly a composite of both. You won't go wrong listening to this book.

Alex Cross' first case since joining the FBI has his new colleagues stymied. Across the country, men and women are being kidnapped in broad daylight and then disappearing completely. These people are not being taken for ransom, Alex realizes. They are being bought and sold. And it looks like a shadowy figure known as the Wolf, a master criminal who has brought a new reign of terror to organized crime, is behind this business in which ordinary men and women are sold as slaves.

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 disappointed you about Mistress?

Instead of listening to a plot, all you got was the story going off on a tangent about old dead presidents and their quirks. After listening for 5 chapters just waiting and hoping the storyline would get better, it only got worse. I had an 8 hr drive and was hoping to listen to the book. Nope, a colossal waste of time

What was most disappointing about James Patterson and David Ellis ’s story?

After 5 chapters, I learned that some weirdo, who liked this girl who fell off a balcony, planted some bugs in her apartment. That's it

How did the narrator detract from the book?

He did the best he could with what he had

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Disappointment

Any additional comments?

Sorry Patterson, you missed with this book
