About the Author

The late William Diehl is the author of numerous fast-paced New York Times bestsellers, including two, Primal Fear and Sharky’s Machine that were made into major motion pictures. Prior to his death in 2006, Diehl had written over 400 pages of manuscript for Seven Ways to Die, and left behind a working outline, notes and chapter drafts. Ken Atchity worked personally with Bill’s widow, Virginia Gunn Diehl, along with his screenwriting partner Michael A. Simpson, to bring this novel to completion. William Diehl was an extraordinarily gifted storyteller who enjoyed an unbroken string of bestselling novels including 27 aka The Hunt, Thai Horse, Hooligans, Chameleon, Show of Evil, Primal Fear (Richard Gere and Edward Norton) and Sharkey's Machine. Seven Ways to Die is more than a worthy final addition to the Diehl canon. For twenty years he lived on Georgia's St. Simons Island with his wife Virginia Gunn, a former Atlanta TV reporter. Diehl, who began writing novels at the age of 50, was strongly influenced by his experiences as a ball turret gunner on a B-24 in World War II--for which he earned a Distinguished Flying Cross, Purple Heart, and Air Medal.He met Martin Luther King and took part in the Civil Right movement. He became a staff reporter at The Atlanta Constitution, then the first managing editor of Atlanta magazine. Kenneth Atchity, author of fifteen previous books, is a prolific producer of motion pictures for television and theater, as well as former professor of comparative literature and Fulbright professor of American studies. Atchity, author of fifteen books, has been an editor and manager of bestselling authors for twenty-five years, and responsible for twenty bestselling novels.

Maybe the dynamic killing machine would have been better off sticking to their other passion which took a good dose of creativity as well. I loved Cody, the lead detective ... he is a fine upstanding American Indian who systematically sniffs out bad guys with his special skills, and his dog Charlie is as special as he is. The ones I call "the killing machine" missed their calling; they would have ruled in the porn business. You will see what I mean. Overall it was a good read which kept my interest piqued until the end.

William Diehl was both prolific and highly talented as a writer of suspense thrillers. He will be missed. His plotting was good and character development top notch. Kenneth Atchity did a fine job. The maze of clues and hints made for an entirely pleasant read. If you want another fine Diehl story, get Primal Fear. I will now be looking for some more Kenneth Atchily works.

This book was amazing. I didn't want to put it down. I found this book while searching through the kindle freebies. The characters were well developed and the storyline was interesting. It was fast paced and had my full attention. Highly recommended.

Diehl was a master storyteller in my opinion. His characters are complex, his plot lines are believable, and well constructed. This story of a Native American NYPD detective captivated me instantly. Micah Cody's ability to communicate with animals aids him in his quest to stop a serial killer. This angle was the main reason I enjoyed the story. The only shortcoming, in my opinion, was the death of Diehl during the story's writing, and being finished by another author. The difference in writing style is immediately apparent, however, the story remains tight and gripping.

5 of 7 people found the following review helpful By Grady Harp HALL OF FAMETOP 100 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on May 31, 2012
Format: Paperback
The legacy of the late William Diehl is already established with his long list of best sellers in the thriller/suspense category. He wrote well, capturing the imagination of a large following who probably have read all of his books. The only exposure to his work for this reader has been PRIMAL FEAR that was made into a riveting motion picture. This book SEVEN WAYS TO DIE is entertaining enough - Diehl knows how to take the reader to places of fascination and danger that normally would go unnoticed. But the overall finish of this book (kindly done by Kenneth John Atchity) feels rough.

Diehl began this story with a rather tired native American Indian setting that yes, sets the tone for the development of the main character, Micah Cody, but getting through that initial chapter is a bit tedious. Once the boy-to-man with supernatural communication powers becomes head of a Tactical Assistance Force and sets out on an investigation of a serial killer whose personality is the highlight of this novel the plot gets patchy. There certainly are areas where Diehl's genius emerges and those passages alone are worth the effort to plow through this otherwise tedious book. But if the reader is a Diehl fan or shares his curiosity about how autopsies are performed or how sex clubs function or what 'talking to the animals' is like in the context of a crime story, then this book will satisfy. It is not on the level of his earlier work (Primal Fear) but then he had set a rather high standard to follow! Grady Harp, May 12

3 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Laurie A. Dressman on April 27, 2012
Format: Paperback
This isn't usually the kind of book I read, and it was a little racy for me in spots, but when I saw the rave review on Nancy Grace CNN, I thought I'd download it and take a chance. Well, my face was red off and on, but I was sucked right into the meticulous procedures of the NYPD homicide detectives trying to put an end to these murders "by the book." It makes you look at things through the eyes of the police and notice things you'd never otherwise notice, not to mention the cast of great characters whose lives you get entwined with as the pages turn. I hated to see it end! if you like excitement, you'll love this book.

Thoroughly enjoyed this book. It was fast paced and was filled with twists and intrigue that I wasn't expecting. So glad Atchity decided to finish what Diehl started.
