Eddie works for Jimmy Scalsi, supplying guns for bank jobs from gun-dealing Jackie. A cop named Foley is leaning on Eddie to finger Scalsi while Dillon, a full-time bartender and a part-time contract killer, is pretending to Eddie's friend.
These are the people who make up the world of unsavory characters. Looking at his "friends." Eddie knows that he has a problem -- whom to sell out to avoid being sent up the river -- or worse.
"The best American crime novelist now at work. Nonstop adventure and suspense." (Time)

George V. Higgins's first novel is like a blast of Atlantic air; the Boston prosecutor virtually reinvents the language of the crime novel with his unique ability to breathe life into the dialogue of the smalltime hoodlum and hustler. Trying to pull off one final score, career crook Eddie Coyle finds himself squeezed out of shape by the people above and below him. The explosive conclusion is inevitable yet fascinating.From the Publisher:
