Publisher's Summary

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.

Fantastic Narration meets Fantastic Dialogue

This was one of the better combinations of narrator and story I've found on Audible. For the record the narrator is from California and the Boston accent (not overpowering) that he uses is for dramatic effect.

I heard about this book from an interview with Elmore Leonard. He cited it and George Higgins' other work as having dialogue he enjoyed and I can see why. The characters are all written sharp and quick witted. The back and forth between them is vicious and hilarious.
