Jerry "Digger" Doherty is an ex-con and proprietor of a workingman's Boston bar, who supplements his income with the occasional "odd job," like stealing live checks or picking up hot goods. His brother's a priest, his wife's a nag, and he has a deadly appetite for martinis and gambling. On a trip to Vegas, the Digger finds himself in the sights of a loan shark known as “the Greek.” Luckily--if you call it luck--the Digger has been let in on a little job that can turn his gambling debt into a profit, if only he can pull it off without getting himself killed.

So real feeling.
Its crazy how grounded Higgins manages to make his characters and worlds feel. It always feels like youre sitting RIGHT there. I always feel like i know these people by the time its over.

Dated and a bit dry
Is there anything you would change about this book?
This may deserve a little better rating, but the book wasn't to my taste. I believe another reviewer stated that this is a story told through dialog. That's true and it's well done, but I listen to this kind of stuff for entertainment and the method of story telling limits action more than I realized it would. Another petty beef is that I need to have a character I like to really enjoy this kind of story, a tale like this is just grim if there isn't someone for me to root for, and I didn't find anyone that appealed to me.
