Book Description

Money Ain't Nothing is an Anthony Carrick mystery.

Money ain’t nothing if you’ve got a lot of it. But then again, a lot of money won’t necessarily buy happiness either. In this Anthony Carrick mystery, hard boiled detective Anthony Carrick is asked to solve the murder of a rich dame’s son. Police think it’s an accidental death, but could it be something more sinister?

From the moneyed streets of Mulholland Drive to the trashy trailer park home of white trash Goths, Anthony’s quest takes him into the dark underbelly of humanity’s seedy side. Love may be blind, but the love of money is a sure path to murder and regret. The rich may be protected from most of life’s hardships but nobody is beyond the reach of the reaper.

Young love is full of promise and vigor but also of hot emotion. Mix 2 parts spurned lover with 1 part trailer trash and another part quick cash and you’ve got a recipe for murder. From vixens to victims and rich bitches to Hispanic snitches, watch Anthony bring a murder to its conclusion. Was it accidental or homicidal?

Editorial Reviews

From the Author

Money Ain't Nothing is a SHORT STORY, it was the very first Anthony Carrick story that I wrote. Before the first Anthony Carrick novel of First Feature there was this short story Money Ain't Nothing. It runs at around 7,300 words.

If you'd like to get a taste of my writing style and of the protagonist Anthony Carrick, then this short story would be a good bet to start with. I hope you enjoy it, I hope you enjoy Anthony Carrick and his quirkiness as much as I do.

4.0 out of 5 stars Oh Yeah! January 11, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
When I read a mystery I like to stay in the moment. I seldom try to work out the how, why, or who dunnit. I really enjoyed this little story. Hoo Rah for the good ole PI style of the story. I'm looking forward to next month when I can buy a novel by Jason Blacker'

Read it. It's worth it.

This fast-paced short story serves as an entertaining introduction to the newest member of the old-school gumshoes, the gritty, hard-boiled, wise-cracking pulp-fiction private detectives of yesteryear inserted into a modern-day backdrop.

If you're a fan of Chandler's Philip Marlowe or Hammet's Sam Spade, you'll love this new guy on the block. His name is Anthony Carrick and he's about as unpolitically correct as they come. He smokes, he drinks, he cusses and he hangs out in seedy bars where the lighting is dim, where a man can be alone with his thoughts and a glass of scotch... that is, until some red-lipsticked dame walks in with her Mascara running down her cheek and asks for a light. Okay, that didn't actually happen in Money Ain't Nothing. Not quite like that, anyway. But no doubt something like that has happened to Carrick in the past. And if it hasn't happened just like that in the past, I won't be at all suprised if it happens sometime in the future because that's just the way it is in Carrick's world.

The author, Jason Blacker, has proven to be a master at coming up with those great sardonic one-liner wise cracks that make this type of character such fun to read. I can't wait to get my hands on "First Feature", the debut full-length novel in the upcoming Anthony Carrick Mystery series.

More About the Author

Jason Blacker was born in Cape Town but spent most of his first 18 years in Johannesburg. His thirst for justice and peace for all humanity was formed in the African sun. He writes mystery fiction and literary fiction as well as poetry and daily haikus at his haiku blog.

When not writing he is either spending time with his wife and son or herding the 4 cats that rule the roost. Other than that, he enjoys squash, both the game and the vegetable and running. A healthy body allows for a healthy mind and a fertile creative soil from which the writing springs.
