A brilliant read and a unique story. RC Bray as amazing as usual. The author has you guessing at the next twist and turn in this drama, eloquently taking you on an unreal journey of deception, betrayal and blackmail.
You know I like when an author has a message, but what I don't like is when said author thinks his readers are too stupid to pickup on the message so he or she feels motivated to beat you over the head with it for at least 10 of the 24 chapters in the book.
When the author was relating the actual story this book was interesting, entertaining, and enjoyable but when the author felt like he was either called to preach or teach I was ready to figuratively pitch everything in the fireplace.
About burning a credit...not again for me. If an author wants to preach or teach, don't list the book under mysteries

I have enjoyed the author's other novels. The crazy plots were fun and surprising. Here, after a really fun start, the plot gets in the way. The twists and twists and twists go too far. The life described was simply too ridiculous. Unless the main character was in a coma for twenty years, he would have known that things could not have been as they seemed. And the MORAL OF STORY is repeated, in excruciating directness, OVER AND OVER AND OVER. I get it, Mr. Stone, I get it. Stop preaching! Subtlety is the secret of great magic acts...and of writing. There was nothing subtle about Two for The Show. That said, I liked his other novels so much that I will read his next one (but will approach with trepidation).
