Jersey Shore broker Austin Carr wants out of the stock and bond business but un-hooking from his mobbed-up partner won’t be painless. Angelina “Mama Bones” Bonacelli is best known for professional consultations that deteriorate into criminal violence, breakfast appointments raided by the FBI and one particular Power Point presentation to a Jersey state racing commission that ended in automatic weapons fire.
Good thing she likes Austin.
She just won’t let Austin out of the business. Plus Johnny “The Turk” Korsay is on a rampage and had his crooked cops arrest Luis, the bartender Austin’s best friend. Why? Because Austin saw The Turk kill Heriberto. And now he’s gunning for the stock broker.
It’s another brush with violent death and a sexy redhead for Austin Carr when Mama Bones and her rival Jersey associate of a fading New York crime family battle for the future of imported sex slaves, boardwalk tourist business and surprising horse racing secrets, past and present.

Austin Carr, stockbroker, is about to get his butt handed to him on a silver platter. Literally.
For years, Austin has been working for Mama Bones, a Mafia kingpin in her own right. Now, after witnessing a murder, he wants out. But, Mama has other ideas—especially since her son is no longer doing what she needs him to do, and then there is the nice issue with the rival Mafia boss, The Turk, to worry about.
Nothing about this book isn’t fast paced. Jack Getze has created a world that adds a bit of comedy to Dashiell Hammet. I could almost see Bogart traipsing around in a few scenes.
Considering this is the fourth book in the series, you don’t even realize it as you are reading. While, I plan on going back and reading the previous stories, you can easily jump in running. Getze has a nice style.
