Publisher's Summary

Internationally-acclaimed author George V. Higgins—a master of action and suspense—continues his gripping series in Bomber’s Law. Higgins’ riveting style enlivens this tale of cops and mobsters set in a world of fast-talking wise guys and heavily-armed exiles from Palookaville. When Brian Dennison succeeds “Bomber” Lawrence as head detective in the Massachusetts State Police Department, he soon realizes that Boston’s upwardly-mobile mobsters aren’t going to let him hang around until retirement age. Can Dennison out-smart the mob, or will Bomber’s Law claim him as another victim?

Higgins’ critically-acclaimed books—including Sandra Nichols Found Dead and The Friends of Eddie Coyle—are filled with rich characters and gut-wrenching dialogue. Veteran narrator Mark Hammer’s resonant and gravelly voice brings each character to life with an intensity that only Higgins’ writing can match.

Trapped On A Bus

Imagine a 1500 hundred mile bus ride, seated in a window seat, moving 5 miles an hour through stop and go traffic, at night, next to a stranger in the aisle seat who talks without stopping about whatever random subject floats to the surface of his alleged brain -- his mother-in-law's mortgage payments, the ethics of lottery sales, the price of beans -- and who speaks in sentences so long, filled with asides, circumlocutions, analogies and repetitive emphases that you have long since forgotten the sentence's subject by the time its end arrives -- and you have an inkling of listening to this book.

I'm a George Higgins fan, but this must be his version of "Waiting for Godot," perhaps on a dare to break the world record for most topics raised discussed between two characters without ever advancing the plot. Hammer is a good reader for Higgins, but he is wasted: you just want the pain to stop.

Very disappointed

The reader was hard to understand. The book should be titled death of a salesman for cops.
