Who is killing Austin Carr? About to be murdered--snatched off a private fishing yacht by a six-hundred-pound giant bluefin tuna--a down-on-his-luck stockbroker recalls the collection of events, miscalculations, and character flaws that led to his current dire predicament: Living in a truck-mounted camper on the Jersey Shore, struggling to keep up with alimony and child-support payments that no longer reflect his shrinking income, the big-smiling, wise-cracking Austin Carr has been searching for a way out of the stock and bond business. So when his richest client tells Austin he's dying, and the future widow--a redheaded knock-out--offers tender consolation, Austins increasingly desperate financial situation draws him deeper and deeper into a barbed web of bad behavior and deceit. Austins would-be killer, whom he dubs Mr. Blabbermouth, could be any one of several suspects, as Austins words and deeds have attracted the wrath of many in recent weeks. The potential murderers include a wacked-out professional wrestler angry over Austin's poor investment recommendations, a jealous sales manager who Austin regularly belittles, and even Austin's greedy employer whose personality traits include a nasty, violent temper. Or could there be another suspect Austin overlooked entirely until he stepped on board that private yacht.
