Higgins tells the story of "Digger" Dougherty, barkeep, gambler and part-time small-time criminal. In over his head from losing big money that he doesn't have gambling on a Vegas junket, owing money to the wrong people, the Digger uses his "holy" brother (a priest), his friends and even his enemies to stay one step ahead of the loansharks. Full of the quintessential Higgins dialogue, this followup to his 1st classic, "The Friends of Eddie Coyle", never disappoints.
