Hunter Lee is one of the best litigators in the country and he proves this without doubt when he wins a 13 million dollar case for a group of families devastated by the careless actions of a railroad in Montana. But at a time when he should be riding high on his success, Hunter's life is falling apart around him. His wife has served him divorce papers, the man he just destroyed on the witness stand kills himself outside Hunter's hotel room, and Strat, Hunter's brother has started the Montana rumor mill chatting about Hunter's move to Fort Mason, Montana. From there the story unfolds in a web of questions and destruction. When Hunter's personal life takes an even more dramatic turn, he heads back to Montana and a new life. Along the way, he meets Paul, a fire jumper who has been more than a little busy since there have been a larger than usual number of fires burning across the state and into California. But Paul isn't the only one worried about the fires. Strat has theories of his own and pulls Hunter into the intrigue as they try and discover if someone is intentionally setting the fires and why. Fort Mason holds a lot to interest Hunter, including a beautiful young woman whose mysterious life is a hot button for the town rumor mill, but Hunter doesn't care about her past, he's falling fast and hard for her. His new friend Paul is also wrapped up in his own drama as his father, a senator, makes every effort to pull Paul back into his life, at all costs. As the fires come more frequently and more extreme, Fort Mason becomes embroiled in betrayal and destruction as the fires get closer to home. Hunter and Paul, both fighting the demons of their past, are forced to face the present as their lives are systematically destroyed by whoever is behind the fires. Stephen Frey can write a book. I was sucked into this story and had no desire to get out. The characters are well displayed and the story runs quite smooth, offering readers a plethora of twists and questions that are not easy to answer. We get a good solid resolution and a great read getting there. Frey is a talented writer and made Hell's Gate an impressive read. --KS, Book Suite Reviews

This book came out in August of 2009, and no reviews are listed here either editorially or by customers, except for a five star review written in June, two months before the book came out. But I took a chance on it, only to find the writing third rate and the story line too convoluted to maintain my interest. It reminds me that some reviews are more reliable than others.

Powerhouse litigator thirty-five year old Hunter Lee of Manhattan's based Warfield & Stone is in Bozeman, Montana seeking a settlement for his clients from Bridger Railroad. He claims they did not take care of the tracks and as a result an accident released poisonous gas that blinded in one eye in two children. He wins a large amount of money for his clients, but at the moment of his greatest triumph, he is served with divorce papers. Hunter is stunned to learn his wife cheated on him with the one man in New York he trusted. Disgusted he leaves the Big Apple for Fort Mason, Montana home of his brother Strat. His sibling informs Hunter that lately there have been too many fires that turned into infernos and he believes they are deliberately set so that someone is making a hell of a profit as putting out blazes costs money. Hunter is concerned for his brother who seems in deep with investigating something that is dangerous especially with no evidence to back his claim. The lawyer meets several interested people including a senator, a businessman, and a woman he likes, but soon realizes everyone has an agenda hidden about the fires. Stephen Frey, known for his fast-paced financial thrillers, turns 180 degrees into a more typical suspense tale that his fans will still enjoy. The hero's trust in people is shattered after the betrayal with only his brother as a person he can be rely on to have his back. He comes to town and quickly thinks Paradise but revises that to paradise lost as he now knows he has entered HELL'S GATE; with the infernos getting increasingly dangerous and the residents of this Eden obvious to him are keeping secrets. Hunter becomes a crusader with a belief in doing the right thing though the cost can be lethal. Still he is an everyman getting involved and by trying he becomes a superman even if he fails. Fans will appreciate Mr. Frey's latest venture as every man can become a super man if they only go for it. Harriet Klausner
