Reviews


"Another bullseye for Higgins!" --The New York Times

"Digger is so real that the next time you order a drink from a bartender, you'll look at him hard, wondering what he does on his days off."--Los Angeles Times "Higgins is one hell of a writer."--Newsday "Aspiring writers of any genre, not just legal suspense, would be wise to read lots of George Higgins." --John Grisham "Higgins deserves to stand in the company of the likes of Chandler and Hammett as one of the true innovators in crime fiction." --Scott Turow "Higgins can plot a whole book like one long chase scene. He can write dialogue so authentic it spits." --Life "The Balzac of the Boston underworld. ... Higgins is almost uniquely blessed with a gift for voices, each of them ... as distinctive as a fingerprint."--The New Yorker "One of the great crime writers of the twentieth century." --Kansas City Star "Higgins writes about the world of crime with an authenticity that is unmatched." --The Washington Post "A uniquely gifted writer . . . who does at least as well by the Hogarthian Boston he knows as Raymond Chandler once did for Southern California." --The New York Times
