Wild Fire is a 2006 novel by American author Nelson DeMille. It is the fourth of DeMille's novels to feature Detective John Corey, now working as a contractor for the fictional FBI Anti-Terrorist Task Force in New York.

The book follows Corey and his wife Kate Mayfield as they attempt to stop the Custer Hill Club members, especially Bain Madox from nuking American cities in order to force the Wild Fire protocol to be initiated. Throughout the book it is assumed that Wild Fire was created as the counterpart of Mutual Assured Destruction for Islamic terrorism.

John Corey is known for his annoying, sarcastic, and sometimes even ambivalent nature towards his job and his social life. However underneath it all John Corey loves his job and works intensely hard at it.

The novel is a sequel to Night Fall and takes place approximately one year later and includes John Corey, one of DeMille's recurring characters. Also included are Kate Mayfield, Corey's supervisor and wife, introduced in The Lion's Game and Ted Nash a CIA spook introduced in Plum Island. The Lion, the 5th John Corey novel published in 2010, brings John Corey back against Asad Khalil, continuing the storyline from The Lion's Game.
