```Finally, searching a little more I get the correcr answer as the
following setting confirms

Integrate[Sqrt[z^2 - 1], {z, 1/10 - I, 1/10, 1/10 + I}]
N[%, 30]
NIntegrate[Sqrt[z^2 - 1], {z, 1/10 - I, 1/10, 1/10 + I}, PrecisionGoal
-> 30,
WorkingPrecision -> 40]

(1/200)*((-1 + 10*I)*Sqrt[-199 - 20*I] - 3*I*Sqrt[11] + 100*Log[(1 -
10*I) +
Sqrt[-199 - 20*I]] - 100*Log[1 - 3*I*Sqrt[11]]) + (1/200)*((1 +
10*I)*Sqrt[-199 + 20*I] -
3*I*Sqrt[11] - 100*Log[(1 + 10*I) + Sqrt[-199 + 20*I]] + 100*Log[1 +
3*I*Sqrt[11]])
