Henry "Hank" Thompson's got a good thing going-a hut on a quiet Mexican beach, morning swims, a nice breakfast place a few miles down shore ... until a backpacker with a Russian accent shows up and starts asking questions about his past. Questions Hank doesn't want to deal with. And then the backpacker mentions the money ... and Hank's parents. So Hank makes a fateful move ... because no one threatens Hank's family. Now Thompson is on the run-dodging federales and Russian mobsters, sneaking past the US Border Patrol, negotiating with nefarious businessmen, and trying desperately to avoid dying at the hands of two hell-bent surfer bums who fancy themselves his allies. The result is a full-throttle thriller, a cinematic adventure full of booze, bullets, loyalty, and love.… (mehr)

The second book was slightly better than the first, but the ending was just a bit implausible. So I'm not going to read the 3rd. ( )

If any book can be described as “high octane”, this one can. This is the continuing story of Henry Thompson, who proves the old adage that no good deed goes unpunished. Huston’s writing has been described as compassionate noir. He’s the only writer I know who can write a scene that is both horrifyingly violent and funny as heck at the same time. ( )

This book is nearly non-stop, with nuanced and realistic action, and a main character that perfectly walks that line between hero and anti-hero. The main character, Hank Thompson, is also nuanced and realistic, conflicted. There are cracks in his life and character as a result of his choices. It’s also unexpectedly funny.

Another in Huston's series about Hank Thompson, ex-baseball player turned fugitive, this was another entertaining book about extortion, vigilantes, and perhaps inevitably for this series, murder. Lots of murder, actually. Entertaining in a light way. ( )

Huston continues to impress me with how well he writes gritty thrillers. His stories just suck you in and spit you out. He has a terse and fast-paced writing style that works very well for this kind of novel, particularly with is fragmentary dialog.

While the writing was as good as in the first book in the Hank Thompson trilogy, I didn't enjoy this one as much as I did Caught Stealing. It wasn't Middle Book Syndrome so much as that the tone of this book is filled with hopelessness. Hank's life continues to fall apart with everything he cares about being threatened or destroyed. As a reader, you can only watch helplessly as he surrenders piece after piece of himself, turning into something that you don't particularly like, even while feeling sympathy for him because you know how he got there.
