When thirty-five-year-old lawyer Hunter Lee decides to turn his back on the New York City rat race that has made him rich but cost him his marriage, he takes his brother’s advice and sets out to build a new life in the beautiful but isolated town of Fort Mason, Montana. However, escape is hardly what he finds there.

Hunter befriends Paul Brule, a fire jumper—one of an elite corps of firefighters who parachute into remote wilderness areas to put out blazes before they become infernos—and gets a terrifying firsthand look at the reality of vast tracts of forest being reduced to ash in seconds by hundred-foot walls of flame. In this tiny town where everyone seems to have a secret, Hunter comes to suspect that this particular rash of summer fires is anything but accidental and could, in fact, be serving a more sinister purpose.

As Hunter follows his instincts, Montana becomes a crucible where good and evil collide—and where one man, running from his past, takes on the burden of exposing the guilty while saving himself and those he cares about most from the greatest danger they have ever faced.

    " I enjoyed this book. It is not the sort of thing I normally read, but it was interesting--a bit grisly, but a lot of action. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Clif Smith | 1/14/2014

    " Good , fast "fluff" novel -- weak ending "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jennifer Horner | 1/14/2014

    " Ending far to simple for complexity of the book. Think I'm done with this author "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Glenn | 1/8/2014

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Pmcdnld2 | 1/5/2014

    " Frey usually writes finacial mysteries: wall street, banks etc but this is set in Montana, conspiracy to burn the forests and the work of fire-jumpers. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Christine | 12/25/2013

    " the book has nothing to do with the biblical context of hell. it's a good read for lawyers - the main character is an attorney. the romance scenes are really cheesy, but on the whole, i really enjoyed reading this book and even laughed out loud a few times. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Patti McDermott | 12/20/2013

    " Who is starting fires in Montana and why? A hot shot NY lawyer wins a big lawsuit in Montana and moves there. There is a lot going on in this story w/a lot of characters but nothing is grabbing me and I am having trouble getting thru this relatively short book. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Raymond | 11/23/2013

    " This was a disappointing read, other than the very picturesque setting and interesting life of a fire jumper it all appeared to come together in a bizarre plot. "

    " Books start out at three stars for me and move up or down as appropriate. This one lost one star for the writing (and misogyny)and another star for the grizzly attack scene. It was totally disconnected from the main plot and served only to show us that the lawyer is not a wimp. "
