Six Bad Things rocks and rolls from the first page. This is one mean, cold, slit-eyed mother of a book, and Charlie Huston is the real deal. <br>-Peter Straub<br><br><br> SIX BAD THINGS IS RELENTLESS. IT GRABS YOU BY THE THROAT, OR SLIGHTLY LOWER, AND NEVER LETS GO. <br>-Jeff Lindsay, author of Darkly Dreaming Dexter<br><br> Charlie Huston is a bad-ass writer, Six Bad Things is a bad-ass book. I loved it, absolutely loved it, as I did his first book. Can't wait for whatever else comes from him. <br>-James Frey, author of A Million Little Pieces<br><br> Charlie Huston is a great wordsmith who also happens to be a great storyteller, and in Six Bad Things he's produced a novel that is edgy, funny, and suspenseful all at once. It's a terrific read. <br>-David Liss, author of A Spectacle of Corruption<br><br> A body slam of a thriller, crammed to the brim with speed-dial action, scene-chewing dialogue and a throat-clutcher of a plot. The characters are as real as a wanted poster-from Russian gangsters and Mexican feds to businessmen who make the Enron gang look like Britannica salesmen. A smooth blend of the best of Elmore Leonard, George V. Higgins, and Robert B. Parker, Six Bad Things is one great book. <br>-Lorenzo Carcaterra, author of Sleepers and Paradise City<br><br> Bloody amazing. He reminds me of all my favorite writers-Pete Dexter, Robert Stone, Crumley. Surprising, funny, compassionate, edge-of-seat stuff, and beautifully written. If there is such a thing as compassionate noir, Charlie has found it. A true marvel. <br>-Ken Bruen, author of The Guards
