Praise

“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.”
–Peter Straub


“SIX BAD THINGS IS RELENTLESS. IT GRABS YOU BY THE THROAT, OR SLIGHTLY LOWER, AND NEVER LETS GO.”
–Jeff Lindsay, author of Darkly Dreaming Dexter

“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.”
–James Frey, author of A Million Little Pieces

“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.”
–David Liss, author of A Spectacle of Corruption

“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.”
–Lorenzo Carcaterra, author of Sleepers and Paradise City

“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.”
–Ken Bruen, author of The Guards
