A book from my Dad..

"Well-known South Miami Beach bookie Harry Arno was grossing seven thousand a week running sports bets. He split fifty-fifty with local wiseguy Jimmy Capotorto, aka Jimmy Cap, but by skimming off the top for twenty years, Harry had stashed away enogh to retire. Everything was set for his name-change and vanishing act to the Italian Riviera with his girlfriend, Joyce (Joy, when she was a topless dancer), right after the Super Bowl. Harry Arno felt like a lucky man.
He felt wrong. An FBI assault on organized crime targeted Jimmy Cap, and Harry was set up as the fall guy to help them do it. Now "Zip," a Sicilian in a classic black suit, had a reason to want Harry dead. Raylan Givens, a Stetson-wearing U.S. marshal, had the job of keeping him alive. And from Miami to Rapallo, Italy, Harry Arno had plans of the own to clean up the past, guarantee his future...and let drawling Rayland Givens go one-on-one across two continents with the mob."

Taking this to Meetup...

Picked up at the Meetup™. It will sit on Mt. TBR (aka Mt. Neverread) until the inevitable avalanche sends it furthest from the mountain's base. (Good way to pick which book to read next!)

Thanks Sundrop!
