EUREKA by William Diehl
FICTION & LITERATURE
Released: March 1, 2001

"And it is fun—mindless, page-turning fun."
Another rousing Diehl actioner (Reign in Hell, 1997, etc.): the heroes are all nonpareils, the villains double-dyed, and readers will have their usual good time watching the pot boil. Read full book review >
REIGN IN HELL by William Diehl
MYSTERY THRILLER
Released: Nov. 1, 1997

"Fizzy male wish-fulfillment that bulges with Clancyesque histrionics, frothing fundamentalist foment, and more than you want to know about hate groups and RICO indictments. (Literary Guild main selection/Mystery Guild selection; author tour)"
Veteran thriller writer Diehl pits scrappy Chicago lawyer Martin Vail against Bible-thumping militia maniacs and Vail's old adversary, psychokiller Aaron Stampler, in a mindless plotboiler that never fails to please. Read full book review >
SHOW OF EVIL by William Diehl
FICTION & LITERATURE
Released: June 1, 1995

"Will score no points with the mental-health community, which looks smug, stupid and flat-out dangerous thanks to one Dr. Woodward, but a tense and often scary read for the rest of us. (First printing of 100,000)"
Diehl expertly juggles three murder investigations in a high- octane legal thriller, his follow-up to Primal Fear (1992). Read full book review >
PRIMAL FEAR by William Diehl
MYSTERY THRILLER
Released: Jan. 1, 1993

"It'll make a great movie, though. (Film rights to Paramount)"
Though Diehl never breaks new thriller-ground, he generally does a fine job of hoeing others' rows—from the cop-novel Sharky's Machine (1978) through the mob novel Hooligans (1984) and the Nazi- conspiracy novel 27 (1990). Read full book review >
