"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." -- From amazon.com.

Very different book by Patterson not sure he was going with it.

I thought this novel was good, even though it was different from some of the other James Patterson books I have read. The main character, Ben, was such a likable guy, and he deserved better women in his life than the two in this novel. Good mystery.

Yet another intriguing mystery from James Patterson

Big James Patterson fan but unfortunately just couldn't get through this book. The narrating character was annoying and his obsessive thoughts that just went on and on just ruined it for me.

I thought this was much better than many of Patterson's previous collaborations. It was entertaining, different, fast-paced, and funny

Good enjoyable read with lots of twists and turns. A surprise for sure when the plot takes a turn. Some of Patterson's work is far better but all in all a nice easy read.

Best book I've read in a very long time!! Lots of action, some surprises, great ending!! Benjamin is cool and funny! He reminded me of Myron Bolitar (my all time favourite book series)
