Higgins received immediate critical approval for his writing with the publication of The Friends of Eddie Coyle, "one of the best of its genre I have read since Hemingway's `The Killers,'" claims Christopher Lehmann-Haupt of the New York Times. It "is fiction of a most convincing order," according to Harvey Gardner in the New York Times Book Review. "The story of Eddie and his hood friends, and of the cops and lawyers who belong in their world as much as the crooks do, is told in short, beautifully-made episodes, full of nicely heard talk."
