Hank Thompson is living off the map in Mexico with a bagful of cash that the Russian mafia wants back and many, many secrets. So when a Russian backpacker shows up in town asking questions, Hank tries to play it cool. But he knows the jig is up when the backpacker mentions the money . . . and the family Hank left behind. Suddenly Hank's in a desperate race to get to his parents in California before anyone can harm them. Along the way he'll face Federales and Border Patrol, mafiosi and vigilantes, extortionists and drug dealers, and a couple of psychotic surf bums with an ax to grind. From the golden beaches of the Yucatán to the seedy strip clubs of Vegas, Charlie Huston opens a door to the squalid underworld of crime and corruption-and invites the reader to live it in the extreme.

I read this book first, (not knowing that this was a trilogy and "Caught Stealing" was actually the first part. I was a little confused as to how he got to be where he was in the story but it was so engrossing, hard hitting and realistically convincing, I couldn't put it down. Awesome story. Brings you into the action and resembled the likes of a Tarantino movie like "Pulp Fiction".

A decent follow-up to Caught Stealing. Reads like a block-buster Hollywood movie, but twists and turns should keep you interested.

A continuation of his first story - a man living in Mexico with his stolen millions suddenly must go on the run to escape those who want his money. Fast paced and violent
