Sharky's Machine - Diehl, William
Sharky's Machine was free to Amazon prime members when I downloaded it. It's $4.99 for everyone else. Diehl is an author I'll be exploring more. How did I miss this one when it was first published in 1978? This book starts during World War II and finishes in the 70's. Some plans take a long time to unfold. Sharky and his fellow Atlanta vice cops are going to do their best to keep a plan that was hatched decades ago from completing. Staying alive is keeping Sharky busy. Now I'm going to find the movie from 1981, starring Burt Reynolds, that was based on this story. It won't be as good as the book, but it should be fun. Very highly recommended.
