Kurzbeschreibung

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.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Unfortunately Too Long 13. Januar 2014
Von Rick Mitchell - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Vine Kundenrezension eines kostenfreien Produkts (Was ist das?)
How many thriller/mysteries can last 502 pages and still be good? Not many, if any at all and, unfortunately, THE RENTED MULE proves the point. I'm a huge fan of THE DUMMY LINE, but Mr. Cole sorely needed an editor with cropping scissors for this book. Pages 150 to 300 were pretty much unnecessary. Redundancy was rampant.

I said it was unfortunately too long, because the story is pretty good one. The ending is also very good. No one does chase scenes as well as Mr. Cole. The main character is very very similar to Jake Cosby in the THE DUMMY LINE and its sequel, MOON UNDERFOOT, but that's ok, the formula works.

In this book, Cooper seems to have the idyllic life, with the exception of his working like a, well, rented mule. His druggie gambling partner wants to sell the successful business he has built and his wife has already spent the proceeds of the sale. He is lusting after the perfect woman, but other that, everything looks fine. Then everyone wants his piece of the company and all heck breaks loose. He is set up as the fall guy and then has to extricate himself. There is not a lot of cerebral effort in his actions, but there is that great chase scene.

This book is okay, especially if you don't mind skimming an appreciable amount of it. I think I'd rather go back and reread THE DUMMY LINE though.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Author Cole is quite the raconteur 3. Januar 2014
Von Cheryl Stout - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Vine Kundenrezension eines kostenfreien Produkts (Was ist das?)
I enjoyed this third offering by author Bobby Cole, after The Dummy Line and Moon Underfoot. He has quite the talent of bringing his characters alive on the page, letting us readers peek into the nooks and crannies of their lives.

Cooper Dixon, the protagonist of "The Rented Mule," is a similar character to Jake Crosby from his first two books. An everyday good old boy who loves fishing and hunting, he definitely isn't perfect. He makes mistakes going through a mid-life crisis and by making those mistakes, hurts others.

The bad guys in the tale are quite the motley group. I loved reading about them - bad guys but not totally bad.

The story takes place in and near Montgomery, Alabama and it is apparent that author Cole is writing about a place that he is familiar with and that he loves.

"The Dummy Line" is still probably my favorite out of the three books but this latest tale is definitely worth reading. It is a little wordy but I enjoyed reading about all the characters. It is a bit of a mystery/thriller also and I liked those aspects of it. I am also glad there was epilogue to the story, tying up all the loose ends rather than leaving us readers hanging off a cliff.

1.0 von 5 Sternen Full of awkward sentences and bad cliches 16. Februar 2014
Von holly - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
I honestly couldn't even get into the story. I found myself distracted by the cliches that seemed to be in every sentence, every word that the characters thought or spoke. The socialite wife who is living beyond her husband's means, the drug-addicted, embezzling business partner with a gambling problem and a bookie...

And I realize that the author was trying to give an impression of his characters having a regional accent or dialect, but I thought it was distracting. Phrases like, "darlin', I'm takin' my boy fishin,'" with all the apostrophes, only go so far before they just become tiresome, especially when all the characters talk that way. I realized I was rolling my eyes at some of the conversations between bad guys: "yo, Homey, whattya want, icin' somebody ain't part of the deal," and that's when I gave up. It's rare that I don't finish a book, but I just couldn't get past my issues with the writing.

Just a note: I did not quote the above phrases directly from the book - call it paraphrasing.

I'm disappointed.

The Rented Mule
Bobby Cole

This is the third book that I have read by Bobby Cole. I was looking forward to reading this as it stars a new character.
Bobby Cole’s is great at building suspense and holding my attention with adrenaline pumping scenes, All if that is encompassed in this novel; The Rented Mule.
There were a few parts that dragged here and there and some of the characters and their dialogue had my eyes rolling. I think some of this could have been edited out because the main and strongest storyline was interesting and kept me reading to the end.
Overall, I still think The Dummy Line is Cole’s best novel and I am still planning on reading his next novel.

1.0 von 5 Sternen Reads like a "made for TV" movie 15. Februar 2014
Von Cleaver - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
Not many books disinterest me so quickly, but this one did. It comes across as a collection of cliches. I'd give examples but I don't want to be a spoiler. (Based on the number of 4 and 5 star reviews, some people enjoyed it, so you might too.)

One reviewer said that it could have been 200 pages shorter - I think that they were being generous.

The kindest thing that I can say about it is that I would classify it as a beach read... if nothing else is available.
