A secret club in the Adirondack Mountains holds an executive board meeting to discuss a possible retaliation plan for 9/11. The same weekend, a federal agent who was sent to survey the lodge and its powerful guests is found dead in the nearby woods. Detective John Corey and FBI Agent Kate Mayfield are sent to investigate the case, and in doing so discover a terrifying plot that begins at the secret Custer Hill Club and ends with two major American cities in the crosshairs of a nuclear device. Can Corey and Mayfield stop the detonation before it is too late?


This was the first Nelsom DeMille book I have read, and I thoroughly enjoyed it! The suspense throughout the book was amazing and I loved how he really grasped the different characters' personalities. It is a fiction book, however it deals with events and political people post 9/11, and the scary part is that once the plot from the Custer Hill Club is revealed, I could actually see our government participating in a similar plot. Definiately worth reading...

Not quite as good as his last novel (Night Fall), Wild Fire is still a thrilling page-turner with protagonist John Corey trying to prevent nuclear Armageddon.

I couldn't put this book down. Read into the night. From Nelson DeMille:"This work of fiction is based on a rumor, repeated on the Internet, about a government plan very much like the one I call Wild Fire. Hopefully, the story I'm about to tell will play out only in these pages...."

John Corey, the ex-NYPD detective who now works on a government anti-terrorism task force, returns in this exciting and uncomfortably realistic thriller. Bain Madox, a brilliant and probably insane villain, has hatched a fiendishly clever plot to force the U.S. to launch an all-out nuclear attack against the entire Islamic world. It's up to Corey, with the help of his FBI agent wife, to stop Madox before he can detonate nuclear weapons on American soil. Set in 2002, barely a year after 9/11, the novel presents a what-if scenario that's so plausible we have to remind ourselves that DeMille is making the whole thing up. Or is he? As usual, DeMille appears to have done a ton of research; what sets his thrillers apart from those of some of his competitors is the way he seamlessly incorporates real technology and real government organizations into his stories. It really is tough to tell what parts of his novels are real and what are the products of his imagination. And although Operation Wild Fire, the American nuclear retaliatory strategy that Madox hopes to jump-start, is fictional, DeMille makes us believe that something very like it could and possibly does exist.

Sequel to Night Fall

"More chilling than yesterday's headlines and as prophetic as tomorrow's, Wild Fire will challenge you to question everything you thought you knew about your leaders and your country while thrilling you with suspense that builds with every page."

The writing was good, the continuing characters were good, but the plot was implausible.

Propably not his best effort, characters and plots slightly less well developed in some of his other efforts, but still a good read, filled with the usual suspects, action, and laugh out loud ironic humor from our hero, John Corey, the rogue NYPD detective assigned to a federal task force. A fun read.

Not De Mille's best work. Corey's obnoxiousness is getting old and De Mille seems to be getting a bit paranoid.

At first I didn't care for the books main character (John Corey), but once I got sucked into the plot, I couldn't put it down.

I read this book in just a few days. At first it started out a little slow but within a few small chapters the action had picked up and you knew you were in for a ride. From then till the end of the book, I couldn't stop reading it.

I thoroughly enjoyed reading this one. It is suspenseful and yet right up front with the facts. You are left wondering how this will end.

Women will probably like this book more than men, because it has Det. John Corey acting pretty stupid at times - all because of jealousy. There is a task force member whom wife, FBI Agent Kate Mayfield, has a past with. This little undercurrent has you arching your eyebrows and saying, "Oh BROTHER!", at how idiotic one can become when affected by jealousy. I got a real kick out of it, but I can see where men would have a hard time seeing the humor!

I've read several of DeMille's books and I believe this one is my favorite. He really ratchets up the suspense in this "end of the world" type novel and keeps you spellbound. Of course, the main character having a problem with authority figures and possessing a razor sharp wit that not everyone appreciates, helped hold my interest.

As always, DeMille writes a good story with humorous dialogue. If you're offended by the "F" word, you might not want to read this - used lots.
