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.

A dog named Rolex (he's a watch dog)

Good story! It's a bit silly at times, but I enjoyed it. There are some memorable characters. This thriller is set in northern Alabama.

- Wayne "I love espionage, legal, and detective thrillers but listen to most genres. Very frequent reviews. No plot spoilers! Please excuse my typos!"

Plot Twists Galore!

If you could sum up The Rented Mule in three words, what would they be?

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.
