Overview

In Boston in the late 1960s, the activities of the mafia and of the Black Panthers are two of the police force’s main concerns. Eddie Coyle, a minor gangster with good connections, faces a three-year sentence for contraband, and his only way of avoiding jail time is offering up a kingpin to the police. Which of the gunmen, thugs, and thieves he’s acquainted with will he betray? Considered to be one of the best noir novels of the past century, this debut novel’s publication in 1970 revolutionized the genre in the United States.

En el Boston de finales de los 60, las actividades de la mafia y de las Panteras Negras son dos de las cuestiones que más preocupan a la policía. Eddie Coyle, un delincuente de poca monta con buenas conexiones, se enfrenta a una condena de tres años por contrabando y su única oportunidad para evitar la cárcel es entregarle a la policía un pez gordo. ¿A quién de los pistoleros, matones y ladrones que conoce delatará? Considerada como una de las mejores novelas negras del pasado siglo, la publicación de esta primera novela en 1970 revolucionó el género en los Estados Unidos.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“Rings true as a police siren.”  —Boston Globe, on the English-language edition

“Chilling. . . . The most penetrating glimpse yet into what seems the real world of crime. . . . Positively reeking with authenticity.”  —New York Times Book Review, on the English-language edition

“Simultaneously a brilliant thriller and a cold and convincing business prospectus of felony—a profession that traps both sides, gunmen and policemen, into ceaseless compulsory degradations.”  —New Yorker, on the English-language edition

"Weighed and calibrated like the barrel of a pistol. . . . Higgins took the tough-guy novel into areas of demented anthropology and re-created a genre.”  —Richard Rayner, Los Angeles Times, on the English-language edition
