What they discover leads to their investigating a death and uncovering a terrifying plot devised by these right wing fanatics. Convinced that only they have the answers to the issues generated by what happened on 9/11, the group's response is a plan known as Wild Fire. It is a course that is sure to set the world on the road to Armageddon. Only Corey and Kate stand between these fanatics and their fiendish plot.
This is a top-notch action thriller. Snappy, wise-cracking dialogue, non-stop action, and interesting, quirky characters, including one very intriguing villain, are some of the hallmarks of this page-turner. With an intricate and clever plot, peppered with many twists and turns, this novel is sure to thrill those readers who enjoy well-written, action-packed thrillers. I loved it!
The novel starts off fairly well and caught my interest, but it quickly bogged down into nonsense. Corey, after uncovering a plot to kill a few Americans, and few hundred million Muslims, doesn't even bother to report it to his superiors. Instead he tries to crack the case himself. Talk about irresponsible and stupid. Talk about infantile and petty and selfish. The story would have been far more believable if Corey had reported his findings to his superiors but no one beleived him. Then he would have had no choice but to act on his own. But the story still would have been weak. Not for one moment did I believe it.
I've read other books by Nelson DeMille which I liked. I thought Word of Honor was excellent and the General's Daughter good. Plum Island ( also a book featuring John Corey ) was all right.
Anyway, 1 star for plot and character. But an extra star for John Corey wisecracks, which I enjoy even if many people find them annoying.
If I had one complaint, it would be that Corey acts out of character just once, suddenly finding himself with moral qualms when he knows the right thing to do, but if he did, the novel would end abruptly, so DeMille held off.
Nevertheless, Wildfire is a gripping and very satisfying read.
This time, JC is up to his neck in sarcasm and not following the rules out in the woods of New York. It was a very sinister notion that the evil doers are trying to launch a nuclear missile using the extremely low frequencies.
It was a far off old school Cold War Notion. DeMille really brought it all to life.
I enjoyed it. Can't wait to see the next adventure of John Corey

Nelson DeMille's books are well written and very entertaining and you know the good guys will defeat the bad guys; however, it's still a thriller and exciting. Read morePublished 9 months ago by Ellen

I really enjoy the work of Nelson DeMille. He takes on important issues and although he is a fictional writer, his ideas are based on fact. Read morePublished on July 24, 2013 by Anne Dean
