About this deal

Given the amount of tacit knowledge implied, this book is definitely written as one of a series, and not one that you can start the series with.

In this final episode of The Camel Club, Baldacci throws in everything except the Kitchen Sink, I felt. He carries a gun, works out of his car, and sleeps in a different hotel room every week, precisely because he runs up against so many bad guys who mean him harm. To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average.I loved the first 3 in the Camel Club series, and I love the Oliver Stone / John Carr character, but this one was a big letdown. Stone is not his real name; he chose it because of the famous director who is also into conspiracy theories. The plot of Hell's Corner intrigued me enough to ignore the fact I was going to encounter unfamiliar character and background info. The president has personally requested him to serve his country again on a high-risk, covert mission.

As usual, a well devised plot, characters that have credibility and an execution of the plot that makes you wonder what turns are coming and indeed where the next corner maybe.

It seems that the mysterious attackers might have another target in their sights, and if the Camel Club is unable to stop them, the results would be nothing less than catastrophic.

En este tomo me encontré con un caso complejísimo, que deja totalmente perdidos tanto a los lectores como a los personajes. The usual suspects in the Camel Club are back: Annabelle Conroy, the unofficial member of the Camel Club and a con artis by trade; Caleb Shaw, who works for the Library of Congress; Harry Finn, who once held a huge grudge against Stone/Carr after he killed his father, and Alex Ford, the US Secret Service agent that has saved Stone's live more than once, and is a key player in saving the presidents life later in the story at the peril of his own life. Up to this point, I've only read the first book in Baldacci's Camel Club series and if I remember correctly I was particularly overwhelmed by it.I am reading the Large Print edition because the DC Public Library hasn't put this 2010 book on its circulation list yet. If that doesn't work, there may be a network issue, and you can use our self test page to see what's preventing the page from loading. The original members are Oliver Stone, the leader of the club and ex-member of triple six division of CIA; Reuben Rhodes, a Vietnam Vet; Caleb Shaw, employee of the Library of Congress; and Milton Farb, a child prodigy. Liberty Hardy is a Book Riot senior contributing editor, co-host of All the Books, a Book of the Month judge, and above all else, a ravenous reader.

Stone is standing outside in Lafayette park, outside of the White House, enjoying his last night before he heads out of the country.
