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, sex 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 Anti-Terrorist 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.

DeMille is to be highly recommended. Like his other novels, this one almost can't be put down. As for me, I'm putting another DeMille novel on hold.

My first Demille book and I'm already reading the next one. John Corey, the irreverent, witty and crude detective with his FBI agent wife try to foil the 'evil' Bain Madox who wants to eliminate the entire global Muslim world through a nuclear war.
The novel is a bit long and overextended and yet as 'a save the world' thriller, it has a rather unbelievable ending (but this is fiction, isn't it). Overall it is very readable, entertaining, suspenseful and fast paced.

A very good book. Anyone interested in a more political fiction type of thing - this is what you should read. It has humour, romance and also some intense parts which keep you hooked on it till the end!

Once again, DeMille does what he does best: shock, terrify, amuse and entertain in a "don't want to put it down" novel that resonates in today's world. He is the prince of plot and chief of character development. I give this one a 10.
