I first read The Friends of Eddie Coyle 25 years ago and I can still remember the opening lines (Jackie Brown, at twenty-six, with no expression on his face, said that he could get some guns.) It is a shame Higgins is gone. He was the true master of dialogue. This was the book that drove my desire to write crime fiction myself. It is the story of the real-life poor SOBs who are just trying to make it day to day in a world moving way too fast for them. It is real, which is why I believe I enjoyed it so much ... and can still remember the characters so well (not to mention the dialogue). This is a story of how it really goes in the underworld. The Godfather is for the simple minded fantasy seekers; George V. Higgins was the real deal.

George V. Higgins has made a career writing books that are mostly dialogue/monologue focused pieces infused with the idiom of his native Boston. None is better than The Friends of Eddie Coyle. Here, better than most of his books, a host of characters comes alive out of the give and take of small talk and rambling conversations, and a (for Higgins) tight plot emerges as well. This is both an exciting story and interesting character study of small time hoods in the big world. True Americana and not to be missed.

Friends of Eddie Coyle is gem of a book. George H. Higgin's first novel. His knowledge of the police and the low-lifes from his own neighbourhood shines through in this story of Eddie Coyle and Jackie Brown. The dialogue is great and it's fun to read.
If you enjoyed watching "The Wire" with it's snappy rhetoric and smart street talk, you'll love this style of voice as it leads you quickly along and into the story of snitches and gun dealers on the tough streets.

Possibly the best account of real life crime, gangsters, and cut throats ever written...a rare insight into the real world of low level criminals, proving "There is no honor amongst thieves"...having been born, raised, and lived in the neighborhoods depicted in this novel, I can honestly say..."This story is all too real relative to Boston area criminals and their alleged loyaties...this book is a masterpiece...

I have just finished re-reading this book for probably the sixth or seventh time since it was published 25 years ago. It was written with a baseball bat and is one of Higgins' best. Best investment you can make if you don't know his work -- a terrific book in every way. Broke new ground when it was published.

Die Geschichte ist schon spannend, und der Erzählstil ist durchaus überdurchschnittlich. Story ist teilweise aber etwas zu konstruiert, und das Ende war für mich recht früh vorhersehbar. Insgesamt aber gut
