I got upset when we were dancing. I just wanted to say I was wrong. I'm sorry." "But I'm not him." "What do you mean? Isn't this Jim?" "Yes, I'm Jim. But not the Jim you want." "Isn't this Jim McCone?" "No." When Angie Rogers called up Jim McCone, she had dialed a wrong number. But that mistake introduced her to someone she was really able to talk to. The question was, what was Jim really like-in person? Would Angie like him- and would Jim like her? Jim's blond with blue eyes and is six feet tall.... He told Angie so himself. Angie's five feet tall, thin, and also has blonde hair and blue eyes .... That's how she described herself to Jim. But Jim and Angie have never actually seen each other.

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.
The Union of Arcana has expanded through the portals linking parallel universes for over a century and a half. In that time, its soldiers and sorcerers have laid claim to one uninhabited planet after another-all of them Earth-and in the process, the Union has become the most powerful, most wealthy civilization in all of human history. But all of that is about to come to a screeching halt, for the Union's scouts have just discovered a new portal, and on its far side lies a shattering revelation. Arcana is not alone, after all. There is another human society, Sharona, which has also been exploring the Multiverse, and the first contact between them did not go well. Arcana is horrified by the alien weapons of its sudden opponents, weapons its sorcerers cannot explain or duplicate. Weapons based upon something called . . . science. But Sharona is equally horrified by Arcana's "magical" weapons. Neither side expected the confrontation. Both sides think the other fired first, and no one on either side understands the "technology" of the other. But as the initial disastrous contact snowballs into all-out warfare, both sides can agree on one thing. The portal which brought them together is Hell's Gate itself!
