American President James Brennan informs retired CIA assassin Stone that his country needs his unique skills. Stone says he is John Carr and not Oliver Stone, American killer; he wants to refuse, but cannot. The Russian control the illegal drug pipelines in both hemispheres and their government is involved in the lucrative trade as they see it as a means back to the top tier of superpowers. Stone tells POTUS that this is his penitence from their last endeavor together when he rejected the Medal of Honor. The impossible assignment is to learn all he can about the trafficking through Mexico and what can be done to disrupt it.

Afterward, Stone is in Lafayette Park, across from the White House, when the British prime minister leaves only to have a terrorist attack occur. Stone's mission changes to identify who is behind the assault as allegedly the Russian drug cartels are the prime suspects. His partner is British MI6 agent Mary Chapman. They need help as the enemy remains elusive, but neither trusts their own agency any longer as a traitor seems to have infiltrated either the CIA, MI6 or both. Instead Stone reluctantly turns to Camel Club associates as he knows Shaw, Rhodes, Conroy, Ford and Finn has hit back and that they will never stay out of this dangerous inquiry anyway.

The latest Camel Club thriller (see Divine Justice and Stone Cold) is an exciting action-packed tale that grips the audience from the initial meeting between Brennan and Stone. Though the story line is similar to many in the genre, fans will want to know who was behind the bombing. Filled with twists and fast-paced, Stone and the camel Club will soon find themselves trapped in aptly titled Hell's Corner with no way out except death.

    Not paying $12.99 for an e-book

    Why would I pay $12.99 for an e-book when I could by hard cover for $15. I am also on my third Nook (first one had a cracked page advance button the replacement was possessed.

    The PRICE IS WHAT?!!

    I will NOT purchase this book at this price...what the heck! Same price as the hard cover? I have noticed this trend going that way with the pricing. I agree. I wish I had not purchased the nook. Sadly Amazon has the same price. May not be B&N's fault. Sorry this review is not geared to the book.

    Outrageous price for ebook

    ChrissUS- I liked the review that you had for this book. Oh that's right you didn't do one just complained about those that complained about the prices of ebooks. I agree with those that comment that the prices for this book in ebook form are outrageous. I also will not buy it as an ebook. If need be I will go to BN and read it 1 hour at a time.

    CAMEL CLUB OBIT.

    I loved the camel Club series. This book had an interesting plot. The author ruined it with idiotic twists and turns. I continued to read and dislike to the end. This is the end of the "camel club" and my last Baldacci!

    He use.to write so well

    David, formula writing doesn't work for you. I realize that fiction is not reality, but these characters and the story line make you suspend not only reality, but logic. Baldacci is capable of beautiful prose and plot, but this has neither. The story is written through dialogue, that is juvenile and below B-movie grade. The Camel Club needs to die off and perhaps Baldacci can get back to real writing...not reel writing.

    Boring - Skip the entire series

    I love his other seires but this is just silly. This Oliver Stone guy is some old man running around Washington like he is some 30 year old spy. And his sidekicks remind me of shaggy and scooby. Couldnt force my self to finish. Be glad you didnt buy it on the nook !!
