Higgins, the writer who boiled crime fiction harder, tracks Jackie Cogan's career in a gangland version of law and order. For Cogan is an enforcer; and when the Mob's rules get ...

Overview

Cogan's Trade is the top-notch crime novel rated by the New Yorker as the "best" from "the Balzac of the Boston underworld." Crackling dialogue, mordant humor, and unremitting tension drive the suspenseful stakes of the game higher in Boston's precarious underworld of small-time mobsters, crooked lawyers, and political gofers as George V. Higgins, the writer who boiled crime fiction harder, tracks Jackie Cogan's career in a gangland version of law and order. For Cogan is an enforcer; and when the Mob's rules get broken, he gets hired to ply his trade—murder. In the gritty, tough-talking pages of Higgins's 1974 national best-seller, Cogan is called in when a high-stake card game under the protection of the Mob is heisted. Expertly, with a ruthless businessman's efficiency, a shrewd sense of other people's weaknesses, and a style as cold as his stare, Cogan moves with reliable precision to restore the status quo as ill-conceived capers and double-dealing shenanigans erupt into high-voltage violence. "Higgins writes about the world of crime with an authenticity that is unmatched."—Jonathan Yardley, Washington Post

    Okay

    This book was not as good as I was expecting. It had some tough guy, gangster style dialog and some classic muscle car references for the cool factor but really spent a lot of time meandering. I wouldn't say it was boring. As a character driven story it was decent, I just wish that there had been a little more action. While the dialog feels authentic it is sometimes a little too quirky and distracting. I've always admired Elmore Leonard's ability to imply a dialect or accent with a few well chosen words. George Higgins tends to spell it out, which unfortunately slows the pace, for me at any rate. It was just an okay read.
