Publisher Comments:

Welcome to the Camel Club.

Existing at the fringes of Washington, D.C., the Club consists of four eccentric members. Led by a mysterious man known as "Oliver Stone," they study conspiracy theories, current events, and the machinations of government to discover the "truth" behind the country's actions.

Their efforts bear little fruit — until the group witnesses a shocking murder...and become embroiled in an astounding, far-reaching conspiracy. Now the Club must join forces with a Secret Service agent to confront one of the most chilling spectacles ever to take place on American soil — an event that may trigger the ultimate war between two different worlds. And all that stands in the way of this apocalypse is five unexpected heroes.

Review:

"Arab terrorists, nuclear threat and political perfidy drive bestselling Baldacci's latest. The Camel Club, a four-man group of Washington, D.C., misfits (their leader has taken the ironic pseudonym 'Oliver Stone') gathers every week to discuss political conspiracies they believe exist and what actions they might take. One night, while meeting on Roosevelt Island in the middle of the Potomac River, club members witness the murder of Secret Service employee Patrick Johnson, thus thrusting the wacky crew into the middle of a bigger conspiracy than they could ever have imagined. There are scores of characters and subplots to keep track of while the story veers back and forth between venues and villains, forcing readers to remain alert yet patient while awaiting the high-concept payoff. When it finally appears, it's a doozy: kidnappers who harm no one and are reasonable people with a legitimate gripe bring the U.S. to the verge of nuking Damascus. Baldacci maintains interest during the long buildup by supplying fascinating historical facts, amusing characters, high-tech spy lore and the backstories of his super agents, both good and evil. As fans of this writer know, years of experience have made him an author who promises a good story and then delivers it." Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)

Review:

"A lukewarm would-be potboiler of uninvolving intrigue....Baldacci himself seems only partly engaged in the task here. He writes as if he imagines his typical reader to be a business traveler staring down a long layover." Kirkus Reviews

Review:

"With an utterly relentless pace, David Baldacci maps out a course with more twists and turns than a good autocross circuit. This is one scary book." BookReporter.com

Review:

"Baldacci is a master at building suspense, and the conclusion of his latest novel will leave readers breathless." Booklist

Synopsis:

Baldacci's instant New York Times bestselling thriller is the story of a ragtag group of conspiracy theorists who gather to find the hidden truth behind the actions of the power elite in Washington, D.C.

The first in the "Camel Club" series. Loved the quirky characters. Quick pace held my interest. I've also enjoyed the rest of the series and look forward to more.

Gets off to a great start and then mid way you will be thinking "why am I wasting my time with this far fetched stupid story????? Yeah I finished it, but what a waste of time. This author has been blessed with mucho money in promotion. Grab yourself a copy of Dennis Lehanes Mystic River & read a good one!
