"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..."
- Nelson DeMille
Welcome to the Custer Hill Club - a 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 relax with old friends. But one fall weekend, the club's Executive Board gathers to talk about the tragedy of 9/11 - and finalize a retaliation plan, known only by its code name: Wild Fire.
That same weekend, a member of the Federal Anti-Terrorist Task Force is found dead. Soon 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 stop the button from being pushed, and global chaos from being unleashed.
