I don t know why the character of Hank Thompson has stuck with me so hard after all of these years, but I loved the guy A DANGEROUS MAN takes us to the end of his story This is one of the few books where I can still remember the final line I close my eyes Brilliant writing by Huston If you ve missed the Hank Thompson trilogy, you ve missed one hell of a treat.

The third in the trilogy of Henry Thompson, and the trouble that kept following him like a little lost pup The things he would have to do, to keep his parents alive But, he was always still doing the right thing.even if that meant a few bodies wouldn t be found With sparse, gritting writing, and an anti hero you had to root forI enjoyed this trilogy.

PROTAGONIST Henry ThompsonSETTING New York CitySERIES 3 of 3 trilogy RATING 4.25It s interesting that there are so few trilogies written in the mystery genre when that is such a commonplace format in the science fiction world Although there are many series in crime fiction, it is unusual to find an author determining that they will be writing a trilogy as they start their writing effort A notable example of a successful trilogy is the Garnethill series by Denise Mina And now Charlie Huston has c [...]

Let me preface my review of A Dangerous Man by Charlie Huston with a caveat I rarely get lost in books in the way I might when doing other activities, such as seeing a compelling movie or playing a particularly good video game With that behind us, I am going to say that this book was riveting I couldn t put it down ADM was that good.I started ADM like I do with most books I figured I would give it a try, but assumed that I would get bored Admittedly, what grabbed me initially was the book s firs [...]

Charlie Huston s A Dangerous Man is the third and last book in the Hank Thompson trilogy Unfortunately, it is not as good as the first two books very good Caught Stealing and almost outstanding Six Bad Things I hope it is not presumptuous of me to provide the explanation We do not take the plot of the first two books realistically I mean, they are written as if they were realistic, but we know they tell a story that could not really happen in real life Sort of like magical realism , with essenti [...]


Drew

I almost didn t buy this book I loved Caught Stealing, the first in the Henry Thompson trilogy, but the sequel, Six Bad Things, involved Henry taking a lot of less than sympathetic actions I had liked the character in the first book, and the second one made me like him a good bit less It was so disappointing that I had trouble enjoying the storyline as I read it Charlie Huston s writing is always awesome action packed, creative and gripping but when I m starting to feel uneasy about the main cha [...]


Scott

This is a really good book It s exciting, it s moving, it kind of feels real even though it s kind of ridiculous It s also a terrific ending to this series.A Dangerous Man is the final book in the Hank Thompson trilogy The first two books Caught Stealing and Six Bad Things are also really, really good This one picks up a bit after Six Bad Things leaves off Hank who everyone is calling Henry now is working for David Dolokhov as a dangerous man basically, he beats up kills people that David wants [...]

A Worthy Conclusion to a Worthy TrilogyFor those of you that have read Caught Stealing and Six Bad Things, it should be a no brainer to pick up this concluding volume For those of you who have not read any of this series, I highly suggest you read the previously mentioned books immediately This trilogy is one of the freshest and most well written set of books I have read in a significant amount of time I keep kicking myself that I have just now discovered Charlie Huston Anyways, I digress.In A D [...]

I didn t realize until after I had finished this book that it was the third in a series I really only read it to begin with because it was a free download from Kindle.The first half of the book was a bit confusing and did not really hold my attention I found myself having to reread several pages because I realized I was skimming the words, not really paying attention to what I was reading However, I hate to start a book and not finish it, so I plugged away When the book was nearly over, I actual [...]

Great ending to a great seriesA great ending to a superb trilogy Henry Hank Thompson is back, his plastic surgery enhanced face, his pill habit and The story starts in Vegas and then heads back to New York, Hank is working as a dangerous man , a hired killer, enforcer, bodyguard, etc The Russian mobster David Dolokhov has Hank on a short leash, with the threat of his parents being killed hanging over his head, Hank doesn t really have a choice I enjoyed this book just as much as the 1st 2nd boo [...]


Timothy

I m an unabashed Huston fanboy but that aside, Dangerous Man was an incredible read.I ve cited the first two books in the Hank Thompson trilogy as excellent examples of pure modern noir a story in which an innocent is sucked in over his head, in which a mostly good guy has to deal with the consequences of being mixed up with utterly bad people.Wrapping up such a tale in a satisfactory manner is difficult I don t want a downer ending just to fit the mood, but there would be something unsatisfacto [...]


Monica

I loved reading this trilogy the hard core crime and violence blended with some of that Pulp Fiction subtle, quirky humour The kind of humour where the bad guy fails at killing you so he shares a cigarette or drink with you while the failed killing is discussed I was hoping for maybe a fourth book in this series and would still be thrilled if there ever was but the ending of this last book was satisfying and complete This was, however, one of those books that I just didn t want to end Huston s w [...]


Jake

A great end to a great series Huston s Hank Thompson trilogy does a masterful job of telling a tragic story in ways that are alternately hilarious, frightening and sad He is a master at making one feel grounded in what s going on despite the situation the characters are in My only complaint is that the serious had to end


Sandi

While dark and grimly violent I did think this was a fitting conclusion to the Hank Thompson trilogy Was put off a bit though by the no quotation marks style I had listened to the previous two installments on audio but did get used to it in the end.


Jamie Collins

The final book in the ultra violent Henry Thompson trilogy Great writing, with vivid dialog, as in all of Charlie Huston s books But I got what I deserved for reading a series this dark I should know better, but his writing sucks me in, dammit.


Lori

I really wish I hadn t read the final volume of this noir trilogy first surely the cover could ve warned me.But I ll be looking for the first two, even though I know how it all ends up.

A Dangerous Man is the final instalment of the Hank Thompson trilogy After the trials and tribulations leading up to his present predicament, it s no surprise to find him struggling as a conscience wracked, drug adled hitman for David Dolokhov, a Russian mobster Dolokhov specialises in fleecing gambling addicts and running rackets, taking the ultimate sanction as a warning to others when they fail him He keeps Hank on a short tether with a threat to murder his parents At a low ebb and waiting to [...]

This book, the third in the Hank Thompson trilogy, brings the entire, brutal story to rest What started out as a error in judgment agreeing to catsit a neighbor s pet led to a string of murders, a life on the lam, and an eventual job with the Russian mafia Now, in the final volume, Charlie Huston brings Hank full circle, and tries to make him a sympathetic character all over again.It isn t an easy thing to do What drove Hank in the previous two books was a desperation to survive, and a desire to [...]


Gary

Everyone Who s Helped You is Dead, Yo I m a huge Charlie Huston fan, and anxiously awaited this finale to the Henry Thompson trilogy And I wasn t disappointed Huston is back in all his quirky quotation mark free dialogue and non linear storyline glory.A lot has happened to Henry since Six Bad Things and not much of it good To keep his parents alive, he s been impressed into service by Russian mobster David as a hit man, running under the tutelage of Branko, the stone cold killing pro who is both [...]


Laura

The final installment in Charlie Huston s modern noir Henry Thompson trilogy, A Dangerous Man is another page turning adventure with Huston s anti hero, Henry Thompson Through each chapter of Huston s trilogy, Henry has grown tougher and a little less hopeful and this is no exception Henry is at the bitter end of his saga of murder, mafia, and running for his life.In this chapter, Henry is working for David, a Russian mafia boss, committing murders, beatings, and other dirty work in exchange for [...]


Joe

For most of this book, I really liked it Good character development, especially when looked at across the final two books in the series Two things knocked this down for me.One, I kind of wanted Henry to embrace his role as a killer He had been doing it long enough that I wanted him to go all cold inside and start enjoying the killing I think Huston could have hit the same basic plot points, and the end might have even been poignant SPOILERS FOR THE REST OF THIS PARAGRAPH SPOILERS FOR THE REST O [...]


Wendy

End of the trilogy, with the very slim possibility of a fourth book should the author so desire, but no actual need for one Except that I love Henry and want him to have a happy ending Not sure what he d make of one, though.This book starts some time after the previous one ends Henry has had a chance to heal from the wounds inflicted in the last book, and his life has taken another, darker turn The violence continues apace, as do the various addictions Henry indulges to help him cope with both h [...]

Hank Thompson has failed in many aspects of his life as a good son, though he s kept his parents out of the mess as a good friend friends have been hurt, mutilated, tortured, and killed and a s a runaway the cops haven t found him, but the Russians have.Through the horrible things that have happened to him in the last several years, and the large debt he owes the Russians, he has become A Dangerous Man Now, he must kill for the Russians No matter how he truly feels The lives of his parents are i [...]

Henry Thompson makes poor choices and moves from one terrible crisis to the next Unfortunately, despite his good intentions, his lack of foresight now has him reluctantly working as a hitman for a crimelord since he managed to be dumped with 4 million of the crimelord money, asked a friend to hold it for him, and then got that friend killed In fact, being killed happens to a lot of Henry s friends Now, he is trying to protect his parents from the crimelord s threats to kill them if Henry doesn t [...]


Jaron

This was the strongest of the three Henry Thompson books.I think I was distracted by Huston s formatting when I started this trilogy Sleepless, a stand alone novel and the first Huston book I read, had actual quotation marks his earlier novels have long dashes indicating dialogue and he rarely attributes dialogue to anyone As I ve grown accustomed to it, I began to appreciate it, and I think it may be Huston s greatest strength I especially enjoyed the Russian crime kingpin s dialogue and person [...]


Caleb Rogers

I downloaded this book on my phone because it was free I was pretty surprised when it turned out to be awesome.This is a kickass story, and it reads like a good action movie There are times when I was tensed up by the awesomeness, and wanted to jump on my chair and shout about how awesome Hank the main character is, but of course nobody does that sort of thing My butt cheeks did clench in excitement at the final fight though, so take that under consideration.Anyway, it s a story about a guy who [...]


Ben

Not quite as strong as the other two, but Henry Thompson s story wraps up pretty much the only way it could.The one problem I had was similar to problems I had with the rest of the series Sports, and in particular baseball, are a part of the story Unfortunately, Huston gets details wrong For example, in this book, one of the supporting characters was a member of the 2004 American men s Olympic gold medal winning baseball team Two problems one the character is praised for this accomplishment when [...]


Quincy

The story of Hank Thompson is both tragic and perfect Charlie Huston s story satisfies each of the conditions required for an entertaining and engaging crime thriller read it s continuous in the sense that there are no easy stopping points or huge story gaps which can be confusing discontinuity , an emotional connection is established between Henry and the reader, and the intensity of each book increases as the reader approaches the end.Where the Joe Pitt series failed I feel that the story beca [...]
