Inhaltsangabe: 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
Inhaltsangabe: Jackie Cogan doesn't advertise what he does. But when the New England mob have a mess they need cleared up, they know who to call. Markie Trattman runs a high-stakes card-game under their protection. When the game gets raided by a couple of no-name hoodlums, Jackie's out of pocket. Unless of course he set up the heist himself. Either way the mob's got a problem. To restore credibility and keep things running smooth, they need to find out who's behind the heist - and then justice must be seen to be done. Which is where Jackie comes in. The trouble is, this is one game with a lot of players, including an out-of-town hitman, a sleazy attorney, a professional dog-stealer, and enough hoods, hangers-on and high-rollers to really make Jackie earn his dough. Filmed as Killing Them Softly.
