    1. I was pleased to re read and re visit this after several years, having remembered it fondly from the first read years ago Carr is a character you love to love Clumsy mouthed, endearing but all male and honest about it, his witty sarcasm incites nearly constant chuckles as the poor sap finds himself in bizarre messes that only further complicate his already haphazard laden life Understanding Carr made it easier to feel the frantic tension and there was loads of it that Getze kept throwing at the [...]

    3. Austin Carr is back and, as always, he s in trouble Some of it of his own making, but most of it because of the people he works for Sometimes his job as a stockbroker is downright dangerous Who would have thought it In this book, he s not the only one in danger His children are being threatened and that just pushes things too far for Austin.I enjoyed the first book in the Austin Carr series, Big Numbers, and I had to see how Jack Getze could top that one Somehow he managed to do that with this s [...]

    4. I have to admit, I have only read a few mysteries with a male lead character I spend a lot of time in cozy land, I guess I m really glad I ventured out of my comfort zone for Big Money It was a hoot and a half Austin Carr is the kind of guy that you want to see on the screen, big or little Because detective cop shows take themselves way too seriously, and that can t be said about Austin Carr This is book two in the Austin Carr series, and it will have you clamoring to get Big Numbers, the first [...]

    7. I found Big Money a light, humorous and entertaining read Not only did I laugh with Austin, I laughed at him Jack Getze and Austin Carr have a rather perverted sense of humor and I love it There is mystery and thrills going on than first meets the eye It seems like a simple little story, but keeps spreading out, drawing in characters you wouldn t want to meet in a dark alley, or anywhere for that matter So, don t blink You may not see it coming.Let s see what kind of mayhem Austin Carr is up to [...]

    12. I received this book for free through the First Reads program The entire book has that feeling of an old timey PI investigator story In my head I pictured Austin Carr as Calvin from Calvin and Hobbes day dreaming about being Tracer Bullet in black and white, a little lewd and riske, but just as hilarious and just as many crazy scenarios occur I haven t read the first Austin Carr novel, but I really enjoyed this one so the it s definitely one my list.

    21. Disclaimer I received this book as a giveaway.This was my first experience with Getze s Austin Carr Unlike many series stories, however, this story was very good as a stand alone book Carr is a smarta whose wit and speak first think later attitude seem to get him into some tight places He is a likable enough guy, however, because he isn t so artificially polished The story moves along at a fast pace so it s not hard to remain engaged, though it s not too deep or thought provoking just a fun read [...]

    23. I gave it 5 stars, because I couldn t give it 4 1 2 stars When I had read a few chapters I thought oh s , it s like an Ed McBain think Fat Ollie s Book , but I felt I should read the whole book and give it a chance I liked it a lot There was a lot of action and it s pretty gritty, but there is also a lot of story there as well The story is well crafted and flows really well 4 stars would not have done it justice Thank you Jack Getze for a delightful read
