"Once you turn the front page, it's almost impossible to stop." Orlando Sentinel
"Primal Fear was a brilliant thriller that most readers considered to be William Diehl's best novel and impossible to top. Reign in Hell, shockingly, is even better." BookPage
"Terrifying." Neward Star-Ledger
"Diehl's exciting mystery teaches the reader never to think that it is over until it is really over. Recommended..." Library Journal
