[edit] Biography

American author of over 25 novels, many about criminal figures. His most famous book perhaps was his first, "The Friends of Eddie Coyle" (1972).

Higgins entered Boston College after high school, encouraged by his parents to study engineering. He soon realized that his heart was elsewhere and he switched to majoring in English. After graduation in 1961 he entered Stanford University and earned a master's degree. He found a job as a reporter. For the Associated Press he covered trials and became fascinated by the courtroom and by the criminal mind as well as by some of the legal shenanigans that lawyers and judges indulged in. In 1963, he went back to Boston College where he earned a law degree. He was admitted to the bar in 1967. For the next 17 years he practiced criminal law and served first as assistant district attorney and then as a federal prosecutor.

In 1961 Higgins had begun writing but no one wanted to publish his work. He began to use his familiarity with organized crime, street gangs, and petty criminals and produced "The Friends of Eddie Coyle, "which firmly established his reputation as a serious writer. Once he had signed the contract for this book, he reportedly drove to the dump and relegated his previous 14 novels to the trash heap! He was witty and engaging, a brilliant conversationalist who loved talking shop. A serious baseball fan, in 1989 he compiled "The Progress of the Seasons: Forty Years of Baseball in Our Town" about his favorite team, the Boston Red Sox. In addition to his books, he taught creative writing at Boston University from 1988 until his death.

Higgins was married to Elizabeth Mulkerin on September 4, 1965. The couple divorced in January 1979 after having two children, a son and a daughter. He married Loretta Lucas Cubberley on August 23, 1979.

He was found dead in his home in Milton, MA on November 6, 1999, one week before his 60th birthday. Police ruled that his death was of natural causes. His book, The End of the Day was published posthumously in 2000.
