BOOK REVIEW: BIG MONEY
Who has more lives than cats? I think it might be Austin Carr.
You have gotta love Austin Carr. He is really a nice guy that just can’t seem to keep out of trouble. He also cannot seem to keep his mind away from women and sex, which doesn’t always lead him to make the right decisions.
Austin has managed to upgrade himself enough to live somewhere other than his camper which he parked outside of Luis’s Bar & Grill. He also has a car and is now able to visit his children.
His stockbroker’s license is suspended so Austin is a Special Management Advisor to Shore Securities, Inc. Walter Osgood, Shore’s top producer is bailing out and moving to another company. Mr. Vick, top shareholder in Shore Securities, Inc., is leaving for Tuscany and is leaving Austin in charge.
Austin is not only in charge of Shore Securities, Inc. but Vick Bonacelli puts Austin in charge of his daughter Carmela and his mother known as Mama Bones. Vince does slip him a phone number to call in case of big trouble.
When Mama Bones phones Austin for help Austin phones “Tony In Brooklyn” the number Vince has left. This just begins a long string of incidents that Austin must cope with including a murder and fighting off Bluefish, a crook wanting Shore to launder money.
There is no lack of excitement in Big Money.
