Publisher's Summary

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.

Don't purchase this book yet

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?

Who is the little known author?

I listen to at least 3 audiobooks a month. Member of audible.com. Behavioral Psychology UC Santa Barbara. 22 years cut my teeth on the California State Hospital system, the Veterans Administration. Ex USAF, Wounded Warrior. Retired. Point is, I’m a very critical critic. Logic based. Charlie Huston makes an enthralling story with no logical mistakes. I’m a huge John Grisham, Michael Colleens, David Baldacci, Mark Dawson & Mark Greanly, (who co-authored with the famous Tom Clancy), prior to Clancy’’s death. Google the guys if you love fantastic journeys into fiction. Maybe I’ve shared too many of Henry’s experiences. I was an ex- patriot, AirAmerica overseas in the Air Force. A wet boy as they called me. Please give this a read or listen. Guarantee you’ll throughly enjoy the ride.

Heaps of profanity and violence.

Quirky story I quit for several days 2/3 through. I guess I needed a break. Curiosity won out and I finished. Most of the characters are not likeable, but ending is perfect.

Dude totally cool.

Quentin Tarantino could do something with this. Fast paced, with some crazy characters. The narrator does a fantastic job.

fun

The plot is rather plain. But, the great characters and excellent dialogue and prose make it a really fun book.

Just ok

I liked the narrator and story. But the level of profanity was just too much for me .

Narration fine, story not for me

I found the story a bit too dark and i didnt feel like it got anywhere. Like maybe at the end, the author decided to set up for a sequel. I'm not sure, i just didnt like it.

Too stupid to live

The narrator was good, however, the main character was too stupid to have survived even half way through this story.
