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 U.S. 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

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
