Hell's Gate

A Novel

From New York Times bestselling author Stephen Frey comes a riveting new thriller about a world-weary star litigator who goes west to become a firefighter in the nation’s greatest woodland—and stumbles across the toughest case of his career.

With fifteen novels under his belt, including such bestsellers as The Takeover and The Insider, veteran suspense writer Stephen Frey has long since proven himself as a master of the sophisticated thriller. Now, with Hell’s Gate, he makes a bold departure into new territory with a story that is literally as explosive as it is impossible to set down. When thirty-five-year-old litigator Hunter Lee decides to turn his back on the rat race that has made him rich but cost him his marriage, he takes the advice of his brother and goes to Montana. There he joins the elite Smoke Jumpers, marines of the firefighting world, who parachute out of C-5 airplanes to contain the worst forest fires of the remote west. But escape from the ugly side of human nature is hardly what he finds when word reaches him of a small town’s little secret involving arson and the reckless quest for profits at the expense of lives. As Hunter follows his instincts, rural Montana becomes a crucible where good and evil collide—and where one man, running from his past, takes on the Herculean task of exposing the guilty while saving himself and those he cares about most from the biggest foe he has ever faced.
