'Flawless of its kind - never a false word, phrase, rhythm, gesture.' - The New Republic

Jerry 'Digger' Doherty is an ex-con and proprietor of a workingman's Boston bar, who supplements his income with the occasional 'odd job', like stealing live checks or picking up hot goods. His brother's a priest, his wife's a nag, and he has a deadly appetite for martinis and gambling.

On a trip to Vegas, the Digger finds himself in the sights of a loan shark known as 'The Greek'. Luckily - if you call it luck - the Digger has been let in on a little job that can turn his gambling debt into a profit, if only he can pull it off without getting himself killed.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Digger is so real that the next time you order a drink from a bartender, you ll look at him hard, wondering what he does on his days off. - Los Angeles Times

Aspiring writers of any genre, not just legal suspense, would be wise to read lots of George Higgins. - John Grisham

Another bullseye for Higgins! - The New York Times

Higgins can plot a whole book like one long chase scene. He can write dialogue so authentic it spits. - Life
