Summary

A riveting George V. Higgins masterpiece about Jerry Doherty and his trip to Vegas that puts him 18 grand in the hole.

Jerry "Digger" Doherty is an ex-con and proprietor of a workingman's Boston bar, who supplements his income with the occasional "odd job", like stealing live checks or picking up hot goods. His brother's a priest, his wife's a nag, and he has a deadly appetite for martinis and gambling.

On a trip to Vegas, the Digger finds himself in the sights of a loan shark known as “The Greek”. Luckily - if you call it luck - the Digger has been let in on a little job that can turn his gambling debt into a profit, if only he can pull it off without getting himself killed.
