Publisher's Summary

The U.S. Speaker of the House is assassinated in a terrifyingly precise execution in the heart of Washington, D.C. In a quieter corner of the nation's capital, the rare book room of the Library of Congress, a reclusive, wealthy scholar drops dead under mysterious circumstances that leave no clues. Following on the heels of the natural death of the Speaker of the House, the city and the nation begin to tremble. In California, a beautiful but capable woman is planning and executing one of the most brilliant cons on record.All the while, "Oliver Stone" and his quirky Camel Club stand by and observe as the genius of their collective perspective begins to connect the dots between these seemingly disparate events--and they realize they must act, and act quickly, before their country falls victim to a silent yet bloody coup.

Difficult to listen to!!!

I like the story so far but this is by far the worst narration I have experienced within the last 50 books that I have listened to. While listening to this book I found my self so distracted by the chalk board grating voice of the primary narrator that I would forget what was going on in the story. I am a very loyal listener to authors that I like, but I highly recommend you save your money on this one and just read the book.

Horrible narration

I'm only about an hour into this one, and about ready to throw into the recycling bin. One main narrator and two voice actors. The narrator has a high-pitched carnival-announcer tone, and the voice actors use essentially the same voices for all characters. It's irritating in a dialogue between two to three characters for the silly narrator to chime in between each sentence with "Leo said", "Tony asked", "Tony asked gruffly", etc., etc. Makes it ridiculously hard to listen to. I liked "The Camel Club" and was hoping to enjoy the next adventure of the Camel Club, but I think I may have to buy the print version. I find it much easier to listen to one person doing everything than this insipid method. Please find a better narrator and re-release the book. Why hire a narrator who can't do different voices? What's Scott Brick up to?
