Cogan's Trade

Cogan's Trade

A crime masterpiece brought back into print – and transformed into the major film, Killing Them Softly, starring Brad Pitt.

Jackie Cogan doesn’t advertise what he does. But when the New England mob have a mess they need cleared up, they know who to call. Markie Trattman runs a high-stakes card-game under their protection. When the game gets raided by a couple of no-name hoodlums, Jackie’s out of pocket. Unless of course he set up the heist himself. Either way the mob’s got a problem. To restore credibility and keep things running smooth, they need to find out who’s behind the heist – and then justice must be seen to be done. Which is where Jackie comes in. The trouble is, this is one game with a lot of players, including an out-of-town hitman, a sleazy attorney, a professional dog-stealer, and enough hoods, hangers-on and high-rollers to really make Jackie earn his dough.

Filmed as Killing Them Softly.
