This is the second book in the Austin Carr Mystery Series by Jack Getz. I did not read the first, however this book is fine as a stand alone.
A second rate investment person (suspended no less)in a third rate firm Austin Carr is a walking disaster area. When his boss decides to take an extended trip to Italy and leaves Carr in charge not only of the business but also tells him to watch out for his mother--Austin is really out of his league. Luis, owner of Luis's Mexican Grill where Austin seems to spend a lot of time is about the only one Austin can even semi trust. Don't ask but I really liked the Creeper who was a killer-but oh so clueless.
