9780446697835: Wild Fire (A John Corey Novel)

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.

From AudioFile:

There's no shortage of action or suspense in this post-9/11 thriller. Narrator Scott Brick's macho portrayal of Detective John Corey creates the tense atmosphere of the tough-guy hero attempting to thwart a domestic terrorist attack. Brick successfully portrays the detective's sarcasm as he interacts with his superiors but adds balance to his personality with softer tones when he teams up with his wife, FBI Agent Kate Mayfield. Brick renders Kate's character with appropriate femininity and the conspirators with icy malice. As the story builds to its climax, listeners may have to remind themselves to breathe as bullets fly and bombs are diffused.
