William Diehl was a great thriller writer from the 1970's to 1990's who died in 2006 It is wonderful that his estate has released several of his books on Kindle at affordable prices, including the well known Sharkey's Machine and Primal Fear which were made into very successful movies. I loved Sharkey's Machine, didn't understand or appreciate Chameleon and really enjoyed the pace and sizzle of Hooligans. There are still 4 or 5 of Diehl's books that I look forward to reading soon.

William Diehl is the author of the bestselling Sharky’s Machine, Thai Horse, Hooligans, Chameleon, The Hunt (formerly titled 27), and the three Martin Vail novels: Primal Fear, Show of Evil, and Reign in Hell. He lives in Woodstock, Georgia, with his wife, Emmy Award winner Virginia Gunn. More from William Diehl.

William Diehl (/diːl/; December 4, 1924 – November 24, 2006) was an American novelist and photojournalist. Diehl was a successful photographer and journalist, when he began his novel-writing career at 50. His first novel, Sharky's Machine, was made into the 1981 film of the same name, directed and starred Burt Reynolds. Diehl saw it being shot on location in and around his hometown of Atlanta, Georgia.

Only one more Diehl book to go. Hooligans is somewhat different from his other novels. It is almost like reading Dragnet with Joe Friday.

Jake Kilmer is a cop for the Feds. Only one more Diehl book to go.

Diehl has completed a unique, thought provoking thriller, and you don't mind the odd occasion when he climbs on his soap box and pontificates, after all he's talking sense.

I read this back in the 1980s when it was first released and have been a Diehl fan ever since. So, I was delighted to see it issued on Kindle and bought it immediately.
I was curious to see if my earlier enthusiasm for Diehl had waned. It hasn't. The story is beautifully plotted and moves along at a great clip.
What's interesting from a technical perspective is that the hero's backstory is inextricably linked to the plot, adding a nice layer of density to an already really well-crafted crafted book.
It's wonderful to see the staying power of some of the books I read so long ago. So, after all these years, I still count myself a Diehl fan.
Best West
This is one of the best thrillers that I have read this year and although it was written in the 1980's I rate it higher than many of the best-selling thrillers released this year. I loved the fast non-stop page-turning action, amazing characters and a plot with so many twists that it keeps you guessing up to the last page.

Jake Kilmer is a federal agent investigating organised crime who has been trying unsuccessfully for several years to make a case against a Mafia family known as the Cincinnati Triad. The Triad disappear for some time and then turn up again in Dunetown, Georgia where Jake spent his happiest teenage years. During the last 20 years since he left Dunetown, Jake has lived through the horrors of the Vietnam war and become a tough motivated cop determined to eliminate the Triad by any means. Since Jake left, Dunetown has changed from an idylic backwater to a glitzy city where the Triad can operate and profit openly.

Jake joins an unusual group of local crime fighters recruited from the dregs of police society to stamp out organised crime. Because of their characters and appearance the locals call them the Hooligans. When the Mafia leader and some of his top people are murdered, Jake and the Hooligans are the only chance that Dunetown has to stop the bloodshed and eliminate organised crime from the city.

A good fast moving police/gangster story, in typical Diehl vein. If you liked Sharky's Machine, you will like this book. Somewhat keeps you guessing right until the end and overall an enjoyable read.
My only minor beef, is there are a host of characters and it is a little hard (for half the book) to keep up with who is who. Made worse by the Mafia guys all having pseudonyms in the town and not their real names (that the hero uses) so you may need to take careful note of each character.

This book is an excellent read. Although there were many different characters there was just enough description for the reader to become familiar with each one. It kept me reading just to discover what was going to happen next and I never saw the ending solution. There are not many mysteries of this caliber.

Haven't read this book yet but if it is half as good as the rest of Wm Diehl's books it will be great!! His books are full of action & a twist or two. Keeps you reading.
Silverbrew
You can't go home again meets Vietnam War and Peace. Variation with a drum section and brass section and synthesizer, this book is a great read but not a light read. Compelling page turner. Flashbacks are exquisite devices in this author's hands. A book for a long rainy spell on vacation or a long weekend. One explicit sex scene was racy for the eighties.

William Diehl gets you into the whole picture. Even though I don't think he was a Vietnam Veteran ( his age ), he may have been with his depiction of the war experience. I'm a Vietnam vet.
Really enjoyed this book
