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.

This is book 2 of a fantastic series that HBO is now filming. Why Audible would include only book 2 (out of 3) is incomprehensible. Do they even care if listeners purchase the whole series?
Things for Henry just go from bad to worse, but he keeps getting lucky. It really is an edge of the seat story, and also kind of funny.
Christian Conn is the perfect narrator for this series. He does great voices for the various characters.
Audible, come on, what are you thinking for releasing book 2, and not book 1 and 3?
