Publisher's Summary

Welcome to the Custer Hill Club, a men's club, set in a luxurious hunting lodge, whose members include America's powerful business leaders, military men, and government officials. The club is a place to relax with old friends, but one fall weekend, the club's Executive Board gathers to talk about 9/11 and finalize a retaliation plan, known by a code name: Wild Fire. That weekend, a member of the Federal Anti-Terrorist Task Force is found dead. It's up to Detective John Corey and his wife, FBI Agent Kate Mayfield, to unravel a terrifying plot that starts with the Custer Hill Club and ends with American cities locked in the crosshairs of a nuclear device. Corey and Mayfield are the only ones who can prevent global chaos from being unleashed.


What the Critics Say

"The novel presents a what-if scenario that's so plausible we have to remind ourselves that DeMille is making the whole thing up." (Booklist)
"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)

Great Listen

The combination of DeMille and Scott Brick has developed one of the most engaging teams in popular fiction. John Corey and Kate Mayfield. This fast-paced mystery is pure fiction, but works as plausible in our time. But more importantly, from a listener's standpoint, the combination of a top-notch thriller and the wit in DeMille's writing, aided by Scott Brick's perfect narrative, we are given an immensly enjoyable 18 hours of audiobook listening. If you loved The Lion's Game, you will love this reading too. DeMille is at the top of his writing skills, too bad it will probably be 2 or 3 years before we have a new book again. this book is worth multiple listens - not something you find very often in a purchase.

- Steven "I love Audible and I love books. What more can I say?"

Wild Conspiracy

Let me say that DeMille to this point has been my favorite Audible author. Lion’s game, Night Fall and Up Country, in my opinion are the best that Audible has to offer. Scott Brick is, hands down, the best narrator around and when these two have combine in the past the entertainment is off the chart. This being said it seems that DeMille wrote this with the intention of selling it to the Hollywood left. The main villain is a rich, conservative, ex-military oilman bent on evil doings. And it just so happens that all of his evil and powerful friends belong to the current presidential administration. This has all the ingredients of a Susan Sarandon – Barbara Streisand production. For me this one was just too far of a leap. This is a story line that even the kookiest conspiracy nut would strain to invent. If you are a DeMille fan then go ahead and get it but if your new to his work the previous titles are much better.
