Welcome to the Custer Hill Club—an informal men’s club set in a luxurious Adirondack hunting lodge whose members include some of America’s most powerful business leaders, military men, and government officials. Ostensibly, the club is a place to gather with old friends, hunt, eat, drink, and talk, off the record, about war, life, death, and politics. But one fall weekend, the executive board of the Custer Hill Club gathers to talk about the tragedy of 9/11 and what America must do to retaliate. Their plan is finalized and set into motion.

That same weekend, a member of the Federal Antiterrorist Task Force is reported missing. His body is soon discovered in the woods near the Custer Hill Club’s game reserve. The death appears to be a hunting accident, and that’s how the local police first report it, but Detective John Corey has his doubts. As he digs deeper, he begins to unravel a plot involving the Custer Hill Club, a top secret plan known only by its code name: Wild Fire. Racing against the clock, Detective Corey and his wife, FBI agent Kate Mayfield, find they are the only people in a position to stop the button from being pushed and chaos from being unleashed.

Quotes & Awards

  • “John and Kate are a wisecracking, affectionate, deadly duo, with a new resolve born in the tragedy of the World Trade Center bombing. This tour de force of relentless narrative power neither stops nor slows for twists or turns but charges straight ahead in the face of danger.”

    Publishers Weekly (starred review)

  • “A narrator unfamiliar with the earlier novels might have been tempted to employ the kind of insouciant smart-aleck approach that would have turned the character [Corey] into a cartoon figure and flatlined the book’s suspense…[But Scott] Brick sees past the character’s wisecracks, tempering his brags and brays with a humanizing hint of self-doubt, suggesting that purpose and simmering anger lurk beneath the glib nonsense. He’s equally adept at catching the villain’s upper class arrogance and Kate’s controlled, no-nonsense approach to life. He can switch attitudes and voices in a split second. Brick turns the talky book into an entertaining and effective full-cast comedy-drama.”

    Publishers Weekly (audio review)

  • “Golden Voice Scott Brick proves himself a superb match for bestselling suspense writer Nelson DeMille. With his trademark tones of irony, sarcasm, and self-confidence, Brick brings to life the wisecracking and independent Corey in ways that will make the listener laugh even as the tension builds. Brick’s quiet and level tones for the more even-tempered Mayfield make it seem as though there are two narrators at work…Winner of the AudioFile Earphones Award.”


  • “This book is fast-paced and thrilling…An excellent read for a multitude of reasons. Highly recommended.”

    Library Journal

  • “[An] exciting and uncomfortably realistic thriller…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?”


  • A New York Times Bestseller
  • Winner of an AudioFile Earphones Award

    " The implications are scary! An interesting story with a reality check that needs some reflection on many levels. "

    " Not one of my favorite DeMille books. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 by Kristy | 1/14/2014

    " I didn't even continue on to the second chapter. Yes, I finished after reading only one chapter, that is how much I disliked the writing style this author uses. I have never read any of Nelson DeMille's books and received this for free from a friend who was getting rid of books that she hasn't read so I figured I'd try this one out. I couldn't decide if it was the writing style, the main character, or the over-the-top concept that I didn't like, but either way, I couldn't continue to read it. "
