Six Bad Things
Publisher: Blackstone Audiobooks
Date: July 2005
Duration: 9 hours 49 minutes
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.
