Smart-mouthed stockbroker Austin Carr is divorced, down on his luck, and desperate. Austin has plenty of enemies — but can he figure out which one is trying to kill him? A witty and cleverly constructed read!
Wise-cracking stockbroker Austin Carr is about to be killed by an unknown man in an unusual fashion - by being dragged off a fishing boat to a watery grave by a giant bluefin tuna. Flashing back three weeks, Carr then recalls the events and bad choices that got him into his deadly predicament.
We spend the book trying to guess the identity of the unknown man on the fishing boat; not an easy task because Carr’s big mouth alienates about everyone he knows.
