It exists at the fringes of Washington, D.C., has no power, and consists solely of four eccentric and downtrodden members whom society has forgotten. Their simple goal is to find the "truth" behind their country's actions.One man leads this aging, ragtag crew. He has no known past and has taken the name "Oliver Stone". Day and night, Stone and his friends study wild conspiracy theories, current events, and the machinations of government, hoping to discover some truth that will hold America's leaders accountable to its citizens. Yet never in Stone's wildest nightmares could he imagine the conspiracy the Camel Club is about to uncover.After witnessing a shocking murder, the Club is slammed headfirst into a plot that threatens the very security of the nation, full of stunning twists, high-stakes intrigue, and global gamesmanship rocketing to the Oval Office and beyond. Soon the Club must join forces with veteran Secret Service agent Alex Ford, who becomes an unwilling participant in one of the most chilling spectacles to ever take place on American soil. It's an event that may well be the catalyst for the long-threatened Armageddon between two different worlds, and all that stands in the way of this apocalypse are five unexpected heroes.In The Camel Club, best-selling author David Baldacci paints a frighteningly vivid portrait of a world that could be our own very soon, and the few people who have a chance to stop the chaos.

The Good, Bad, and the So-So

If you have read "Last Man Standing", you might be dissapointed with this one.

The Good: Great Narrator, priceless comedy scene half-way through the book. The Secret Service character was well developed.

The Bad: Author laid on the political message a bit too thick. The dedication to the Secret Service could have been a little more subtle.

The So-So: Many of the characters we just not believable. The dialogue between the 4 guys in their golden years was weak.

A good suspense story

I have read most of David Baldacci's novels. The Camel Club was a good suspense story, but not quite up to what I have come to expect of this author. While the characters where plentiful, David did not do his usual in depth character development. As a result, while some of the characters were interesting, I never felt draw or repulsed by any of them. Even the 'heros" of the story, didn't bring out my usual caring for what happened to them. I am not sure if the plot didn't contribute to my appraisal of this novel. While conceptually interesting, I found it difficult to follow at times, an experience I have never had with other books by Mr. Baldacci.

Worth a listen to. but if you have another choice, you might consider that one first.
