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.
Would you listen to Six Bad Things again? Why?
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?
Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?
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.
What does Christian Conn bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
Christian Conn is the perfect narrator for this series. He does great voices for the various characters.
Any additional comments?
Audible, come on, what are you thinking for releasing book 2, and not book 1 and 3?
