Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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.

Synopsis:

An explosive secret about the reality of crime and justice in America forms the heart of this first-class crime novel inspired by a true story. The author of "The Friends of Eddie Coyle" penned this latest work just prior to his death in 1999.
