Joy Fielding

The Wild Zone

Random House / 2010

From New York Times  and Globe and Mail  bestselling author Joy Fielding comes a pulse-racing story of a harmless bet gone deadly wrong.

This is how it starts. With a joke.

Two brothers - Will and Jeff - and their friend Tom are out one night at their favorite South Beach bar when they decide to make a bet on who can be the first to seduce a mysterious-looking young woman drinking by herself. Pretty, dark-haired, blue-eyed Suzy has an innocent - almost ordinary - girl-next-door way about her. “Just waiting for Prince Charming to hit on her,” Jeff says.

But Suzy isn’t as naive as she seems. And she has an agenda of her own. Soon another challenge is born, only this one proves to be lethal.

Dark secrets, hidden passions and a story filled with intrigue, The Wild Zone  will keep you in suspense until the very last page is turned.


“[Fielding] sucks you in with end-of-chapter cliffhangers, violent results and wild sex... This is a thriller and, as with all thrillers, there is that twist at the end that forces you to read until the very last sentence.”
The Globe and Mail
“A wild ride with a life all its own, strewn with surprises and consequences for all parties along the way. Fielding's characters and plot are strong and well-developed. The story is gripping, always leaving the reader guessing, and culminates in a deliciously untamed twist of a conclusion.”
