Review: The Mistaken – Nancy S. Thompson
Despite the fact that he lost his parents and his sister not too long ago, Tyler Karras has lived a perfect life. He’s got a beautiful girlfriend whom he intends to marry, and a job he enjoys. He has everything he could ever ask for, and more. Yet not everything is as it seems.
For as long as he can remember, Tyler has come to his brother’s aid. Nick is the black sheep of the family, and always needs a bailout whenever he’s in a bad situation. He’s done everything he can to help his brother out whenever needed, but it’s slowly wearing on his last nerve.
When his baby brother gets into yet another bind, he’s no longer sure if he’ll be able to weather the storm. A series of unfortunate events spiral from there, and Tyler soon starts questioning whether he’s doing the right thing. In trying to protect his brother, he’s inadvertently alienated his wife.
When it becomes apparent that things are not quite what they seen, Jillian takes matters into her own hands. She’s seeking answers to her questions, and wants nothing more than to have the matter at hand rectified. Never once did she imagine paying an unexpected price in trying to do the right thing.
Unable to bear the loss of his beloved wife and child, Tyler’s life takes a sordid turn. He blames himself for their deaths, and will stop at nothing until the woman who’s caused him such heartache atones for her misdeeds. Unfortunately, she’ll never be able to do just that, as he’s inadvertently kidnapped the wrong woman.
Caught in a race against time, he’ll need to ensure her safety if he’s to outwit the Russian Mafia. That, however, is easier said than done. Despite the fact that the odds are stacked against, he’s willing to give it all he’s got in the hopes that in the end, he can right all wrongs, and set the record straight, once and for all.
The Mistaken is definitely a thriller all its own. Action packed, it’s sure to take the reader for a ride as he/she delves into a dark and twisted world of mistaken identities, and things that make you go ‘Hmmm?’ It’s startling, at first, to see how far a man would go to protect his family. Granted, this isn’t your conventional thriller, but it’s definitely one that will leave you thinking in more ways than one.

Tyler Karras is an honest man, a transplanted Brit living the American dream, but his charmed life takes an unexpected turn when his brother, Nick, is coerced into joining ranks with San Francisco’s Russian mafia. Ty intervenes to secure Nick’s freedom, yet only succeeds in incurring their wrath. With no choice but to accept Nick’s new life, Ty returns to his own, but his dreams are dashed when his wife—pregnant with their first child—is killed, the victim of a reckless crime.
Despondent and bitter, Ty macerates his grief in alcohol. From the depths of the bottle screams a voice, howling for vengeance. His target is a stranger, the woman who drew his wife toward her death. He doesn’t know her, but he’ll find her, and when he does, he will make her pay, for a deal has been struck with Nick’s Russian associates, enslaving her into a life of bondage. But as Ty moves forward in a cloud of alcohol, he mistakes the wrong woman for his intended victim and now all his plans have gone straight to hell.
With his eyes made clear by the stark reality of his mistake, Ty is driven, compelled by remorse and a relentless sense of guilt to make amends and protect Hannah Maguire, the innocent woman whose life he has derailed. He vows to keep her safe and out of the Russians’ hands, but they’re holding Nick as leverage to force Ty to complete their deal and turn over the girl. Once again, he must fight to free his brother, miring all three lives in further jeopardy. But Ty can’t do it all: Save the girl, his brother and his own soul. One of them must make the ultimate sacrifice.
