(Volume 3)

Paperback: 176 pages

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 questionable 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 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, discovering the fate of a pseudo ruby called the Big Mojo, and close 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? Does anything matter for Austin again if Mama Bones flips that switch?

My Review: Big Mojo by Jack Getze  (Austin Car Mystery #3)
I like Austin Carr more and more.  He is smart, gets into so much trouble, lots of drama, action and you are not sure who is good or bad until the end. Austin Carr has a lot of enemies, but he also has some good friends, and enemies.
His partner Mr. Vic Bonacellis calls him into his office and introduces him to a beautiful women who has insider information.  They want him to buy stocks with the information and think they can get away with it.  Austin does think about it for a moment but he is not willing to risk going to jail and risking his future with his kids.
Vic hates Austin especially after he left him holding a mess of trouble last year and he ended up now as major partner of the firm. He wants his mom to have him killed.
Mama Bones Bonacelli likes Austin but is willing to mess with him. She decides to put a spell on him.  Mama is part of the local mob.  The spell goes wrong if it works.
You never can guess where this story goes it has so many twists and turns. Austin is beat up a couple of times, he is being accused of insider trading, trouble with his daughter, he is falling in love and is best friend at a wedding.  It has a little bit of everything in this story. It is a book that is not boring at all.
The setting is the Jersey Shore.
I was given Big Mojo to read and in return I agreed to give honest review and be part of Big Mojo's book tour.
