The Fire begins thirty years after the culmination of The Eight, when a chess piece from the Montglane Service mysteriously resurfaces in Russia.

The children of the previous characters know nothing of the quest of their parents, but are drawn into it nonetheless — and “The Game” is afoot again.

Blending exquisite prose and captivating history with nonstop suspense, Neville weaves an unforgettable story of peril, action, and intrigue.

A New York Times Bestseller, The Fire received rave reviews, spending more than 6 months on bestseller lists around the world, including in France, Spain, Holland, Denver, Seattle, San Francisco, and Washington, DC. The Fire is also the recipient of the prestigious Silver Nautilus Award.
