Well if you liked the first two in the Hank Thompson series, you pretty much have to read this one. Unfortunately this one isn't nearly as good as the other two :(

Hank Thompson is a dangerous man, a hit man working for a Russian mob boss. But Hank's life isn't any easier than it was when he was running from people who wanted something he didn't have, running from people he knew he had something they wanted, and running from the police. Hank is a different person in A Dangerous Man. Addicted to pills and painkillers, he needs a handful of medication just to get him through the day. But it's all to protect his parents. Hank stumbles through the rest of his life, self-medicating, in a constant state of depression. Hank's life is spiraling out of his control and into the control of his mafioso employer and his right hand man. Hank is finally pushed too far and takes control back, but a little too late. If you loved the first two novels [Caught Stealing and Six Bad Things] you probably won't like this one as much. It is definitely not like its predecessors. It is much darker, less action and energy. Still very well-written. I love Huston's dialogue and his first person POV. You'll like it simply because it's a Huston novel. Everything that happens to Hank is totally unexpected and it will keep you on edge just like the other books did. Great wrap-up to a great trilogy.

Henry "Hank" Thompson is back, his plastic surgery enhanced face, his pill habit and more... The story starts in Vegas and then heads back to New York, Hank is working as a "dangerous man", a hired killer, enforcer, bodyguard, etc. The Russian mobster David Dolokhov has Hank on a short leash, with the threat of his parents being killed hanging over his head, Hank doesn't really have a choice! I enjoyed this book just as much as the 1st & 2nd books. Charlie's writing and great characters always make for a fast and exciting read! Hank has killed seventeen people through the three books, stolen four million dollars from the Russian mob and is wanted by the FBI, it had to end sometime! Charlie Huston could have went alot of different ways for the ending, I think he chose the most realistic ending possible, without overdoing it! Charlie Huston is a great writer, I'm looking forward to reading his other books, "The Shotgun Rule", "The Mystic Art of Erasing All Signs of Death" & "Already Dead"!

The final book of the Hank Thompson series is a nice send out to the trilogy. The book dosn't lose any of the things that made the previous books great: fast-paced writing, a hard-boiled/noir story, and a great cynical lead character. A dangerous man differs slightly from the previous two entries in that its a little darker in my opinion, at the beggining of the book, Hank has reached an all time low, he's fat and addicted to pills and because of this, it loses alot of the dark and edgy humor that made the first two books (the character himself) acceptable to alot of people. Also the book kind of starts off a little slow and dosn't really get into gear until a third of the way into it. But Huston has still written a first-rate crime-thriller that will be a lot of fun to even people who don't like crime thrillers (note: don't take this book too seriously, its not meant to be), and people who have read the previous two books should definitely read this one, although its not the best in the trilogy in my opinion (Caught Stealing). I also have to give credit to the ending of the book, which i think was handled very nicely.
