I'm a huge Nelson DeMille fan, so the author's name caught my attention. I decided to take a chance, and am glad I did. The writing is not quite up to Nelson DeMille's standards (though not may are), and reminds me of "Plum Island" and "The General's Daughter" more than "The Lion." That said, if you liked "Lion" & "Lion's Game" you'll enjoy this story. The plot revolves around Travis Deacon, a Marine on leave in Wales, who must stop a terrorist from killing the Queen and Prince Harry. He's assisted by a beautiful Detective Dee Jones, and a romance progresses along with the investigation. I thought adding Blackjack, a dog, as a character was a risk, but the author managed to pull it off well. I saw there was another review, and decided to add one as well. While I agree with the comments, five stars may be a little generous. It is, however, a solid four. It gave me something very good to read while I wait for the next Nelson DeMille release.

I really enjoyed this. I read it over a couple of days and the story kept me very interested, I would recommend to any person who loves an engaging adventure.

This is a story filled with action, adventure, mystery, suspense, espionage, treachery, romance, you name it. I definitely wanted to know more from the beginning. The story opened with a great introduction to the fact that it took place in the UK and that the main character in the story was from the US. I may not have understood many of the UK references, but that was ok because Travis was just as confused as I was. The humor brought me in at first, and then the mystery regarding Gareth hooked me further. Reading this book felt a lot more like watching a movie than reading a book. I felt that I could see the characters well when they were explained in detail, but even more when they were explained with comical nicknames. In fact, I pictured Travis as Jason Stathem. Overall, I really enjoyed reading Hellfire. I don’t typically read mystery suspense and action for pleasure, but this one has introduced me to the genre in a positive way. I have always enjoyed movies that are similar to this story, and now I know that I enjoy reading them too. The humor in the story added that little piece of something extra that most stories lack when there are tragedies involved, which was also quite refreshing.
