Andrew J. Rush has achieved the kind of critical and commercial success most authors only dream about: he has a top agent and publisher in New York, and his twenty-eight mystery novels have sold millions of copies around the world. He also has a loving wife and three grown children and is a well-known philanthropist in his small New Jersey town. But Rush is hiding a dark secret. Under the pseudonym "Jack of Spades," he pens another string of novels, dark potboilers that are violent, lurid, even masochistic. These are novels that the refined, upstanding Andrew Rush wouldn't be caught reading, let alone writing. But when one day his daughter comes across a Jack of Spades novel that he has carelessly left out, she begins to ask questions. Meanwhile, Rush receives a court summons in the mail explaining that a local woman has accused him of plagiarizing her own self-published fiction. Rush's reputation, career, and family life all come under threat and unbidden, in the back of his mind, the Jack of Spades starts thinking ever more evil thoughts.

This one hurt my ears...I listened to this book, so my review is mainly on the narrator.
There is an alter-ego at play here, and the voice used for him (Jack of Spades is his name, so corny) is way louder than the normal narration, and super grating. If this were in your earbuds, you would rip em out. I kept adjusting the volume throughout, and was super happy when it was finally over.
The plot itself is interesting, but not done well enough to pull it off. It is very vague and choppy.
I would not recommend this book.
