If you love Greg Illes or Brian Freeman this is a must buy author.

No good deed goes unpunished or so goes the life of Hank Thompson. Being asked by his neighbor to watch his cat doesn't seem like a problem that is until Hank finds out Russ' secret and now has two Russians, two reform school runaways, a police detective and a whole cast of strange people out to kill him.

If only he hadn't been caught stealing third base in high school Hank would have had the life he had always dreamed of, now he has half of New York after him and a cat to take care of.

Thrilling, violent, creepy - an all out great read. This is book one in the Hank Thompson Series.

I don't recommend this book. The story is choppy and uneven. There are some very strange villians which add interest to the book but not enough to save the story. If it hadn't been such a short book, I wouldn't have bothered finishing it. Don't waste your time.

Caught Stealing isn't for everyone, but those who like over-the top, gritty crime fiction with a host of unique and quirky characters will enjoy. Huston isn't in the running for the next Raymond Chandler but he does score a great weekend read.

I loved this exciting (and amazingly profane) novel. Hank Thompson is quite the protagonist, I'll give him that.

This was a great book. Fast paced, non stop violence. Great story line in the middle of it all!

I didn't get very far in this book before I put it down -- don't waste your time or credits, it doesn't start out very good but I tried to give it a chance but it was just choppy and made no sense so after 50 pages I put it down, not interested.
