Caught Stealing, along with Six Bad Things and Huston's fourth novel, A Dangerous Man, follow the lovable anti-hero, baseball-mad Henry Thompson, as he works his way through mistaken identity, his past, and a new life for himself.

In 2006, Huston joined the list of print authors who have written American comic books. In April 2006, Marvel Comics launched Huston's reboot of the Marvel character Moon Knight. Huston wrote the first 12 issues of the series, concluding his run in December 2007. He also wrote the second Ultimates Annual issue in August 2006. Another long-form comics work was a Wolverine series, Wolverine: The Best There Is, with artist Juan José Ryp.[2]

In January 2013, it was announced that Huston was working on the pilot for FX's adaption of the Powers comic series.[3] Between 2017 and 2019, Huston was a writer and producer on the Fox TV series Gotham.
