RARA-AVIS: George V Higgins

From: Paul Duncan ( paul.duncan@asml.nl)
Date: 20 Jan 2000

The Friends Of Eddie Coyle was GVH's first novel, and the novels published directly after that retain the same style, and concern themselves with the lowlife/working class criminal:

Cogan's Trade The Digger's Game The Rat on Fire

After that, GVH's style and subject matter changed. He had a sort-of series starring downtrodden lawyer Jerry Kennedy (including Kennedy for the Defense, Penance for Jerry Kennedy etc). The rest of his novels were mostly political, but they still had a hard edge/sleazy/corrupt mentality. Probably his best novel is A Choice Of Enemies.
