9780156011907: At End of Day

Every cop knows that Arthur McKeach and Nick Cistaro are the most prolific and ruthless practitioners of extortion, fraud, theft, bribery, assault, and murder in the Northeast. What they don't know is how to stop these Michelangelos of crime, who for thirty years have eluded jail-and even arrest. Their secret is at the heart of George Higgins's most searing and shocking dissection of the criminal life yet. At End of Day lays bare not only the inner workings of a criminal empire, but also reveals the corruption at the heart of American law enforcement.
Few writers have mapped the intricate highways and byways of crime with equal vividness and elegance. With this final novel, "a return to the criminal milieu of The Friends of Eddie Coyle" (The Boston Globe), Higgins solidified his place in the forefront of novelists who write about crime in America.

Review:

"At End of Day is a return to the form that made Higgins famous: the crime story, a tale of villains and compromised good guys. . . . It's a sin and a shame that George V. Higgins never won the Pulitzer Prize." -"Seattle Times" "The last novel of the late George V. Higgins shows no hint of failing skill or mellowing temper. The dialouge is as raffishly eloquent as ever, the action as disconcerting to the lawfully minded, and the author's underlying attitude what it has regularly been - a plague on all your houses." -"Atlantic Monthly" "All the famous ingredients are present - the pitch-perfect dialouge, the shaggy-dog monlogues, the lively mugs. . . . Always readable, always entertaining, the lowlife's Boswell - no one else was ever quite like him." -"The Philadelphia Inquirer" "At End of Day is a terrific and topical book that takes off from headlines . . . a return to the criminal milieu of The Friends of Eddie Coyle." -"The Boston Globe"
