My Thoughts: 

Thanks again to Kristin for a great giveaway.  This book was a great read.  Jack Morgan finds himself in a boatload of trouble early on in the story when his ex-girlfriend winds up dead and put in his bed.  For much of the book it looks like Jack is headed up the creek so to speak.  Everything points to Jack as a cold blooded murder, but there are several hints that maybe there is someone out there who be mad enough at Jack to do this... in walk Tom Jack's evil twin brother.  Did Tom order a hit to send Jack over the edge?  Or was Tom calculated enough to do this himself?  Talk about a hell of a ride.
