'Higgins...has arranged the conventions of the crime novel into something new: oblique, bleak and often graveyard funny' THE SUNDAY TIMES

When the tenants of Jerry Fein's dilapidated buildings refuse to pay the rent on account of the rats, Jerry drafts in arsonist Leo Proctor to take care of the problem. After all, the place is insured and the fire marshall's back is turned, so what could go wrong?

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

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

The Balzac of the Boston underworld... Higgins is almost uniquely blessed with a gift for voices, each of them... as distinctive as a fingerprint. - The New Yorker
