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.

    " Great read, super fast.

    Crime noir set in the Boston area. Kind of helps to know the name of the local prisons and what kind of neighborhood the scenes are set in. Brilliant book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mark | 4/2/2011

    " Higgins' first -- and possibly his best -- novel. You've never read crime thriller like Higgins writes. The novels are almost completely dialogue, and the dialogue of marvelous, funny, gripping & scary. BONUS: All of Higgins' novels are set in Boston, and he gets Boston *right.* "

    " Great Dialogue. LOTS of great dialogue. Nothing wrong with a book about Boston skells. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Eric | 2/19/2011

    " Outstanding. Every crime novel and movie since 1970 that has spun its yarn from the multi-layered interactions of anti-heroes and moral ambiguity owes this book a drink. "

    " A perfect book. Doesn't matter what you write--you'll write it better if you read this. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Scott | 1/9/2011

    " I think the mood of the book and the writing were better than the story itself. Nice dark fiction was what I was in the mood for and this book really works. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Miki | 12/25/2010

    " very interesting voice and writing style. Sparse almost to an extreme in terms of description. I wonder how someone who didn't live in Boston would find it. "
