Wall Street’s miasmal garbage washes up on the Jersey Shore when a small time broker falls in love: Is he attracted to the beautiful lady—or her brother’s inside information?
Held spellbound by a steamy, auburn-haired woman with a dubious past and a get-rich-quick, insider trading scheme, Austin Carr knocks down a beehive of bad-acting Bonacellis, including the ill-tempered “Mr. Vic” Bonacelli, who wants his redhead back, and local mob lieutenant Angelina “Mama Bones” Bonacelli, architect of a strange and excruciating death trap for the fast-talking stockbroker she calls smarty pants.
To survive, Austin must unravel threads of jealousy, revenge and new affections, discover the fate of a pseudo ruby called the Big Mojo and slam the lid on a pending United States of America vs. Austin Carr insider trading case. Can Austin and his Jersey Shore mouthpiece possibly out maneuver the savvy U.S. District Attorney from Manhattan? Will anything matter for Austin ever again if Mama Bones flips that switch?
Wherever Austin Carr goes trouble follows. There’s trouble at the office, Vic is not happy Austin now has 51% of his company and Rags thinks the company should belong to him. He has trouble at home with a teenage daughter flexing her teenage muscles. And then you have Mama Bones wanting to help her son Vic, but mainly looking out for herself and she is not afraid to use a little voodoo magic to get what she wants. Austin could end up in jail or dead and for what, a gigantic rock that may or may not be real.
Getze writes a tangled web that all seems to lead to the BIG MOJO. Like every book in this series you can be on the edge of your seat on moment and laughing out loud the next. I really feel bad for Austin Carr. He always wants to do the right thing and just when he thinks things are starting to go his way someone flips the tables and he running for his life and trying to keep his kids safe.
Jack Getze packs a huge punch with these shorter novels. Drama takes place at breakneck speed so you had better hold on tight. Big Mojo can be read as a stand alone but you need to start at the beginning to get the full Austin Carr experience. BIG SHOES is coming soon!
