Book Review - Big Money (Austin Carr Mystery) - Jack Getze

Thursday, August 7, 2014


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.


About the Book: (from Amazon)

THREE WOMEN ARE MAD ENOUGH TO KILL HIM ... Left in charge of a third-rate Jersey Shore investment firm, suspended stockbroker Austin Carr becomes the prize in a war between two crime crews, a powerful state investigator and Mama Bones Bonacelli, his boss's wacky mother. Barely staying alive with mobsters, beautiful cops, and a hitman he calls The Creeper chasing him, Carr stumbles into the secret world of a beautiful but desperate woman -- a murderer who chooses Austin as her next victim.

I would most definitely have to read the first one. I just can't skip and jump to the second no matter how much better the second one may sound and this sounds like a great book.

I love mysteries that are quick reads but leave you suspicious. This sounds like it would fit the bill.

Angel said...

That is interesting that the author is a former reporter. I wonder if his writing style reflects that.
