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.

I love espionage, legal, and detective thrillers but listen to most genres. Very frequent reviews. No plot spoilers! Please excuse my typos!
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.
Quick, easy read.
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.
I think it did, though the main characters voice seemed to change midway through.
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.
Love mystery, suspense, action and on the edge of your seat novels.
No, because I don't ever listen to book twice.
Milly with the iron.
The end of the book. Nice job Mr. Cole!
Refreshing to read something with morals as part of the mystery. I liked the character development and the funny scene.
I loved his previous books and love this one. This one is slightly different from his previous books and doesn't have the raw tension through most of the book like the previous ones. But it kept me interested. The narrator might have been part of it. I'm glad I got this despite the negative reviews.
I have listened to over 250 books in the last 10 years. I tend to listen to certain authors and try to read all their books. I listen while exercising and driving which makes the time past enjoyable.
No cause I never read or read the same book twice, as there are too many good books out there. to read.
The plot kept me very engaged
Cooper Dixon...he was the lead character
Neither, but it kept me interested in the storyline.
Listened to the book the narrator and the plot allowed me to not only listen but the visualize the scenes.
It depends on the friend - it plays out a little like a TV movie at times.
His characters are interesting, so I would probably try one more title to see how he handles other ideas.
Great narration, great characters (though a few silly ones) and an over-the-top ending that spoils an interesting setup.
This is my first time listening to this author and I was delighted with his writing. It is great to read a book that the characters actually end up with some morals.
