Passionate Oversights is a work of true crime in the non-fiction genre, penned by author Charles W Massie III. Focusing on hard-hitting themes such as domestic abuse and psychological damage, particularly from the male victim and female abuser angle, this harrowing true-life story begins with an ordinary man who was seeking a relationship. When Charlie Mason sets out to find love online, he thinks he has found the ideal woman who is both smart and beautiful. But the true nature of his prospective partner is revealed as a Black Widow, full of sadistic desires and a passion that attacks Charlie’s very sanity.
Suitable for mature readers due to its thematic content and some graphic depictions here and there, this a true crime story for those who are looking for the less-well-represented areas of crime, but who also still desire a highly emotive tale and one in which survival becomes a key driving factor. It’s impossible not to feel for Charlie, whose desire for a relationship was innocent and relatable to most of us, and the presentation of Patriche and her many forms of control was both fascinating and harrowing to read about. The narrative style flows quickly, making this a speedy page-turner that often goes from shocker to shocker in a breakneck fashion, but it is also darkly and deeply layered; a story which will keep you thinking about it long after you’ve put the book down. Overall, Passionate Oversights is certainly recommended for true crime fans and abuse survivors.
