The classic novel from "America's best crime novelist" (Time), with a new
introduction by Elmore Leonard
Eddie Coyle works for Jimmy Scalisi, supplying him with guns for a couple of bank jobs. But a cop named Foley is on to Eddie and he's leaning on him to finger Scalisi, a gang leader with a lot to hide. And then there's Dillon-a full-time bartender and part-time contract killer--pretending to be Eddie's friend. Wheeling, dealing, chasing, and stealing--that's Eddie, and he's got lots of friends.
"Chilling...the most penetrating glimpse yet into what seems the real world of crime...positively reeking with authenticity!"--The New York Times Book Review
