The Rented Mule  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.

HUBBY'S REVIEW:
In this story the main character Cooper is lost, in his marriage and his business partnership. He really does not know what is happening around him. He is more focused on some piece of land that he wants to buy after his company is sold. But he does not want to sell the company, his partner is in a lot of trouble with gambling debts and he is the one who is pushing for the sell. Now his wife can only see the money that they should be receiving from the sell so she is out spending and planning a party for the oldest daughter that is the talk of the town. There is another person who wants cooper out of the way but you don’t find out who that person is until the end. He causes coppers and his wife’s life to go through a crises and during this time they both realize that they love each other but have to make it out of it to start a new. There are so many twists and turns that it was almost to the end before you find out who really was behind everything. A lot of suspense which for me did not want to put the book down especially the last 150 pages. This was a very, very good book. I am not wanting to say to much more because I feel like I will give more of the story away. I got this book from net galley.
