Meet the Author

Critically acclaimed author William Diehl was an extraordinarily gifted storyteller who enjoyed an unbroken string of best selling novels.

Born New York, 1924. Flew 29 bombing raids over Europe as a teenaged ball-turret gunner. Graduated from the University of Missouri, worked as investigative reporter for the Atlanta Constitution, managing editor of Atlanta Magazine, free-lance photographer for Life, Sports Illustrated and other national publications.

Diehl was fifty years old and already a successful photographer and journalist when he decided to begin a writing career. His first novel, Sharky's Machine, became a movie by the same name and was directed by and starred Burt Reynolds.

Following the success of Sharky's Machine, Diehl relocated to St. Simons Island, GA in the early 80's where he lived for the next 15 years completing eight more novels including 27 aka THE HUNT, THAI HORSE, HOOLIGANS, CHAMELEON, PRIMAL FEAR, which also became a movie by the same name starring Richard Gere and Edward Norton, SHOW OF EVIL and EUREKA.

    OK

    It was a bit hard to follow in the beginning, but toward the end of the book it all came into place.

    Excellent, well-written story

    Great character and story development. The writer takes you to a myriad of places, describing each in engrossing detail while keeping them strongly tied to the plot and characters. It would be great if he wrote a series of novels based on the main character.

    Adventure, but poorly plotted and written

    The author spends far too much time on flashbacks, all aimed at building cred for the hero. But, the situations are so outlandish as to kill any interest in continuing to read. So, I quit halfway through the book. This book might appeal to the teen age set, but I doubt anyone at all sophisticated would enjoy it.
