Unforgettable scenes & an exceptionally convincing talent for capturing the dialogue of the streets - these are the signature elements established in this debut 1972 crime novel by George Higgins, a lawyer-turned-novelist. It would be difficult to provide examples of comparably crisp & edgy dialogue, outside of a Tarantino movie or a David Mamet play.
