Jack Getze’s novel, Big Mojo, sent me off on another wacky adventure with Austin Carr. Austin seems to be a bit too trusting and he will pay for his naivety. Jack Getz will keep you on your toes with this Rockfordesque story and his slightly (lol) dysfunctional cast of characters.
I have read some of Jack Getze’s work (see below) and enjoyed it so much, I eagerly look forward to the next adventure.
The covers are gorgeous, the colors leaping off the page. What do you think of them?

I love the Austin Carr book series and Big Mojo is Jack Getze’s latest. The covers are gorgeous and each novel can stand alone. His novels make me think of Janet Evanovich and I love the fun and witty writing with quirky characters and snarky dialogue.
I am asking you, ” Are you ready for a good time?”
Austin Carr has an ability to find trouble, so buckle your seatbelt because it will be a bumpy ride.
Austin’s business is in New Jersey securities and with his penchant for redheads who walk on the wild side, I don’t see much good coming from his meeting with Patricia Willis. He has a tendency to think with his “small brain”. He’s a good guy that bad things happen to, no matter how hard he tries to do the right thing.
Austin is no stranger to Mama Bones Bonacelli and he knows better than to cross her. She is not like any Mama I’ve every known.
Vic, Mama’s son is an idiot. He wants revenge on Austin, but she won’t do it. She knows he doesn’t deserve it. Mama finally relents and agrees to a magic spell instead of a hit.
The mention of a second kitchen in the home makes me think of my best friend’s family, not to mention a house I owned in New York. It is quite common for Italian families to have a second kitchen in their basement.
I laughed my way through the beatings, double crosses, triple crosses, magic potions, insider trading, and shootings.
Austin parks his home in his buddie’s, Luis’ parking lot of his Mexican restaurant. It brings back memories of Jim Rockford on the Rockford Files TV show and his less than savory friends and acquaintances. He has an ability to defy the odds, whether it is a beating or a shooting.
So many suspects and so much action, along with all the convoluted happenings and characters, will have you wondering what will happen next and who will be doing what to who. So, pour yourself a cocktail, put up your feet and enjoy Jack Getzke’s latest hilarious adventure with Austin Carr.
I received Big Mojo by Jack Getze in return for an honest and unbiased review.
