Jack Getze in his new book, “big mojo book coverBig Mojo” Book Three in the Austin Carr Mystery series published by Down and Out Books gives us another adventure with Austin Carr.

From the back cover:  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?

I have a problem. And I need to assure you that this problem is mine alone. Here is my problem:  I didn’t like the book. Mr. Getze is a very good writer who keeps the story going at an even pace. “Big Mojo” itself is full of all kinds of plot lines that somehow dovetail together at the end. So what didn’t I like about this book? The characters. There is not one character that even has a remote resemblance common decency. All of them are out to get the other one. And Austin is one of the worst. For me I need at least one character that I can root for and in this book I found none. I am sorry because I got this book expecting so much from it. I feel very let down and disappointed.
