Sharky's Machine Book vs Movie
Add/Edit a Difference
This Spoils the Ending
In the Book In the Movie
   Arch’s informant lives. Arch's informant is killed.
   Domino is Howard Burns' first intended victim. Billy Score makes two other hits before moving on Dominoe.
   The book uses plenty of racial slurs. The movie hardly uses any racial slurs, but there is slight racism.
   The climax of the book takes place at Pachinko! The climax of the movie takes place at the Westin Peachtree Plaza.
   There is a scene where Sharky and Arch visit Fort McPherson to determine Howard Burns’ real identity. All Sharky and Arch have to do is get Billy Score's print from Dominoe's apartment.
