Baldacci's implausible fifth Camel Club novel (after Divine Justice) disappoints with cartoonish plotting and characterization. The night after the U.S. president persuades former assassin Oliver Stone (aka John Carr) to re-enter government employment to tackle the growing threat of Russian drug gangs, Stone finds himself in Lafayette Park, across the street from the White House, when gunfire breaks out and a bomb explodes. Apparently, the intended target was the visiting British prime minister, who was scheduled to walk across the park before an ankle injury modified his plans. Taken off his original mission, Stone seeks to identify the forces behind the assassination attempt. Stone's old Camel Club allies involve themselves in his search, which includes the de rigueur mole hunt and the McGuffin of choice these days, a lead on Osama bin Laden's whereabouts. Those who prefer intelligence in their political thrillers will have to look elsewhere. (Nov.) (c)

Shortly after the events related in Divine Justice (2008), Oliver Stone, former CIA assassin and now the leader of the shadowy group known as the Camel Club, is whisked away to a top-secret meeting with the president of the U.S. Russian drug cartels are operating on American soil, possibly with the approval—if not the direct supervision—of the Russian government. Stone’s mission is to go to the drugs’ point of entry, Latin America, and find a way to shut the cartels down. But before he can even begin his mission training, Stone finds himself in the middle of what appears to be a terrorist attack on the life of the British prime minister. Teaming up with a British intelligence agent, Stone attempts to determine if the attack is connected to the Russian drug-smuggling operation. The latest Camel Club novel is, as usual, skillfully constructed and very difficult to put down. Baldacci keeps peeling back layers of Stone’s psyche, revealing him to be a man full of unresolved conflicts and a potentially self-destructive amount of guilt over his past actions. Another winner. HIGH-DEMAND BACKSTORY: Since Baldacci’s first novel, Absolute Power, appeared in 1996, he has owned a place on most best-seller lists. His latest Camel Club novel won’t break the string. Author tours and all the attendant hoopla will get the ball rolling. --David Pitt

I've read 2of the 5, I think there are 5, and I missed the one where a member of the Camel Club is killed...going to go back and read the ones that I missed. I'm familiar with Washington D. C. and the surrounding area, so it was fun to recall many of the places I once visited. I'm looking forward to the players in the Camel Club to be more active in the next book ... enjoy each of the personalities and what they contribute to the whole.
Wonderfully written "who done it" with many dead-ends and characters. I found it difficult to put the book down and I looked forward to picking up where I left off.
I had finished the book and all that I can say I that it is not worth the read. It is one Hell of a bad book to read. Stay away. The only critics (reading through kindle) that made any comments about the book were minor reviewers. Never heard of reviewers. SAD. The twists and turns of this book were so bad. He had to make up for the 500+ pages the book is. Soooooo he put in those twists and turns which were boring totally boredom of this book. I could use it for TP
