It becomes obvious in the early chapters that DeMille has done some diligent research for this novel particularly in the area of nuclear weaponry. The story is about potential nuclear annihilation of American cities and the Arab world. It is instigated by a very wealthy but very evil man with the help of powerful persons in the highest positions of our government and business world. The evil plan is revealed to the reader in the first few chapters. John Corey and his FBI agent wife, Kate Mayfield, defy direct orders from their boss and, on their own, try to avert a nuclear terrorist plot. As in the past John Corey has a problem with authority and continues to strike out on his own dragging his sometimes reluctant wife (and boss) along with him. Together, the husband and wife team give the story sex, humor and personality.
The book, no different from previous Cory books, is laced with Corey's smart aleck, wisecracking one-lines. I suppose I have become more tolerant of this personality flaw as it didn't bother me as much as in previous writings.
The book has enough scary twists and turns to keep the reader engaged. The last half is more interesting and intriguing than the first part. I recommend Wild Fire and give it a rating of 4 out of 5.
I can't tell you about the story, when you do that, you tend to give away too much. But I can tell you, it is another real page turner, a thriller until the very end. This time you really think he isn't going to get out of the mess he has gotten into.
I have recommended this series to everyone of my friends and everyone speaks highly about these books. I am so glad I found Nelson DeMille, he has not let me down yet. Read it, you won't be sorry.
