George V. Higgins, the internationally-acclaimed grand master of crime fiction, returns to thrill listeners with this riveting tale of cops, robbers, and big city low life. An expertly crafted story of loyalty and betrayal, it is peppered with wonderfully authentic dialogue and seedy black market atmosphere. Eddie Coyle is a small-time gun dealer with a big-time problem: who to sell out to avoid going to prison. While mob bosses, cops, hoods, gunmen, thieves, and executioners give Eddie plenty of choices, he has few options. Any decision could cost him his life. Shady deals and accusations fly as fast and deadly as bullets in this riveting audiobook. The combination of Higgins and narrator Mark Hammer will leave you with mental images of crime and justice that you never thought possible before.

"In a realistic portrayal of cops and robbers Higgins details the conflict between loyalty and betrayal faced by criminals who find themselves entangled in the web of justice. Reader Mark Hammer's grizzled voice is too worldly, however, to fit the ages of the young characters in this particular selection. Since individual characters aren't represented by separate voices, the listener must pay close attention to determine the speaker as police or criminal. Hammer does bring a pragmatic style to the conversational tone of the book while also bringing to life the voice of the hardened criminal. J.L.R. (c) AudioFile 2002, Portland, Maine"
