I heard his debut novel described as "The Maltese Falcon on crack" which was spot on.  Huston turns out amazingly dirty, gritty and fast paced novels that are just impossible to put down.  Chalk him up as my favorite author these days, supplanting the equally talented Chuck Palahniuk.

I loved Caught Stealing — in fact, I haven't been able to post it here yet because I've passed it to several friends and family members. While I didn't like the second book in the series as much , it certainly was as fast-paced and funny. I'm looking forward to reading the third book.
