Publisher's Summary

Cooper Dixon should have it made, with a beautiful wife, Kelly, two great kids, and a thriving business, the Tower Agency. But for Cooper, things aren’t turning out how he expected. He and Kelly are caught in a never-ending cycle of arguments - Cooper can’t remember the last time they had sex. And Cooper’s troubled business partner, Gates Ballenger, is scheming to sell the Tower Agency out from under him.
When a gang of criminals is hired by a mysterious client to kidnap Kelly and set up Cooper to take the fall, Cooper’s life goes completely off the rails. The cops quickly zero in on Cooper as the prime suspect, and the combination of an attractive suburban mother, workaholic husband, and a million-dollar insurance policy makes the case primetime television fodder.
Soon, Cooper’s face is plastered on every TV screen in the country. Cooper races against time to find his wife before the gang turns her over to their client, whose plan to take down Cooper is far more sinister than anyone could imagine.

Quick, easy read.

Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

I wouldn't say it kept me on the edge of my seat but it did keep me in my seat in order to find out what would happen next.

Did the narration match the pace of the story?

I think it did, though the main characters voice seemed to change midway through.

A nice surprise

I have read only one other Bobby Cole book and I liked it but this one was much better. I admit that I have never heard of the term 'rented mule', so I was confused. I was three quarters into the book before I learned what it meant. If you already know what the term means before going into the book, I assure you that you will still be surprised. There was one small problem had with the book. Two of the characters were a little over the top. It could have been played down a little and still the message would have gotten across to the reader. I recommend this book, I assure you that you will enjoy this book if you enjoy this genre.
