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.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Huston writes dialogue so combustible it could fuel a bus and characters crazy enough to take it on the road. Passengers, line up here.” New York Times
Six Bad Things is so good, in part, because Huston manages to make it horrific, hilarious, and hip. If Huston’s literary godfathers include Raymond Chandler and Elmore Leonard, they also include Hunter S. Thompson, who would have appreciated the speed freaks, crank heads, gun nuts, Russian mobsters, greedy federales, and assorted geeks and psychos who populate these pages…This crazed, wildly readable adventure works because Huston writes with such delicious, deadpan verve and because Hank, his self-described mad-dog killer, is such an appealing, totally cool dude.” Washington Post
“More than fulfilling the promise of Huston’s 2004 debut, Caught Stealing, this remarkably assured hard-boiled caper has rapid-fire pacing, dead-on dialogue, and a beleaguered protagonist who just can’t get a break…Will leave readers anxious for more.” Publishers Weekly
