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.
