Wild Fire

By Nelson DeMille


2007—A patron of the Edmonton Public Library complained about this thriller. In the novel, which is set in 2002, a group of powerful Americans secretly plot to provoke a nuclear attack on the Middle East in retaliation for the terrorist attacks on New York City and Washington, D.C., in 2001.

Objection—The complainant said Wild Fire was “just another hate-promoting novel.”

Update—The library retained the book in its collection.
