This was a complicated story with a list of characters where each have their own agenda. Tim apparently is the man to hate,"Tim ...more

Tim Jones’ life is a train wreck and it might just get a lot worse. His wife cheated on him but he wants to make amends. His mom rejects him at every turn but he doesn’t much care for her either. Just when he is trying to put it all back together some one shoots him.
This book has more twists that a plot in a daytime drama. Mr. Butler has thrown more than just a few curves to make the story zing and has served up family dysfunction on a silver platter. I thoroughly enjoyed this read even while I

It's crazy. I love how you have the ever present asshole in the guise of best friend. He screws his best friend's wife... and all hell breaks out. It's a great read so far....
