Overview

Caught Stealing (Hank Thompson Series #1) by Charlie Huston, Christian Conn

It’s three thousand miles from the green fields of glory, where Henry “call me Hank” Thompson once played California baseball, to the Lower East Side of Manhattan, where the tenements are old, the rents are high, and the drunks are dirty. But now Hank is here, working as a bartender and taking care of a cat named Bud who is surely going to get him killed.

It begins when Hank’s neighbor, Russ, has to leave town in a rush and hands over Bud in a carrier. But it isn’t until two Russians in tracksuits drag Hank over the bar at the joint where he works and beat him to a pulp that he starts to get the idea: Someone wants something from him. He just doesn’t know what it is, where it is, or how to make them understand he doesn’t have it.

Within twenty-four hours Hank is running over rooftops, swinging his old aluminum bat for the sweet spot of a guy’s head, playing hide and seek with the NYPD, riding the subway with a dead man at his side, and counting a whole lot of cash on a concrete floor.

All because of two cowboys, two Russian mafia men, and some of the weirdest goons ever assembled in one place. All because of Bud. All because once, in another life, in another world, the only thing Hank wanted was to take third base—without getting caught.

A great 1st novel by Charlie Huston! "Caught Stealing" has been on my short list of books to read for quite awhile! Finally, I took the plunge and read it straight through in one night! Henry "Hank" Thompson is a great character, he turns from nice average guy to cold blooded killer towards the end of the book. The book has alot of well written so called bad guys, the action is good! I really liked the direction Charlie Huston was taking this novel towards the end of the book and I can't wait to read Part 2 "Six Bad Things" and Part 3 "A Dangerous Man" soon! Highly recommended hard boiled action read....

I am really at a loss as to what people see in this book. The "hero" is an alcoholic stoner, the very definition of a weakling and a loser. It is absolutely impossible to care about what happens to this utterly craven piece of garbage. He can't even manage to feed the cat..

Love Huston's works. This 1st book is where Hank is constantly getting hurt. Huston writes so that you feel every punch and cut. Great read.

This book had me from the very first page. I could not put it down as it keeps you drawn in wanting to find out what happens next. The ending was a nice surprise I look forward to reading the 2nd book in the series.

I can say, without any hesitation, that this is the best book/series that I have ever read. I know that may seem extreme, well with all the books out there, but it's the truth. It's also just my opinion. I dare you to find a story that has dialog with a more real, gritty feel. It can't be done. The characters pull you in by the short and curlies like a busty dominatrix and all you can do is grimace and ask for more. There are no punches being held, no safe words being used. The ball gag is in and the pages keep turning. The only fault I can find in this series is that it's a trilogy, I would prefer it to be a neverending story. But, if you read this book, you'll know why there's a better chance of Disney making a cartoon version of this book, than a fourth installment coming out. Get the book. Read the book. Nod your head in approval of everything I just typed. Go get the next book. Repeat this process until there's nothing left to read. You can thank me later.

I was very impressed with Caught Stealing. The main character has found himself in a nasty situation that is not of his making. He then spends the next few days trying to make things right until he has to make some tough choices he can't walk away from. I found myself many times wondering what I would do if I was in a similar although highly improbable predicament. A very enjoyable read that I highly recommend to anyone who likes a good thrill ride.
