Overview


The Camel Club exists at the fringes of Washington, D.C., has no power, and consists solely of four eccentric members whom society has forgotten. One man leads this 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 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 they are about to uncover, in...


THE CAMEL CLUB: 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. It's an event that may well be the catalyst for a long-threatened Armageddon, and all that stands in the way of this apocalypse are these unexpected heroes.


THE COLLECTORS: Headquartered in a caretaker's cottage in Mt. Zion Cemetery, Oliver Stone discovers that someone is selling America to its enemies-one classified secret at a time. When Annabelle Conroy, the greatest con artist of her generation, struts onto the scene in high-heeled boots, the Camel Club gets a sexy new edge as the investigation of two chilling murders hurtles them into a world of espionage that threatens to bring America to its knees.


STONE COLD: One by one, men from Stone's shadowy past are turning up dead. To almost all who know him, Harry Finn is a doting father and loving husband who uses his skills behind the scenes to keep our nation safe. But the other face of Harry Finn is that of an unstoppable killer with his sights on Stone. As the Camel Club and Annabelle fight for their lives, the twists and turns whipsaw, leading to a finale that is as explosive as it is shattering.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
Praise for THE CAMEL CLUB:

"Bestselling writer David Baldacci delivers another political thriller, this one involving the Secret Service, corrupt government leaders, and terrorism. The Camel Club consists of four eccentric friends who meet regularly to discuss their theories of conspiracy. Upon witnessing the murder of a government official, they are thrown into real-life danger and must partner with Secret Service Agent Alex Ford to root out the criminals before the United States takes action against an innocent country. Narrator James Naughton's steady, controlled delivery communicates the gravity of the situation. His portrayal of Camel Club leader "Oliver Stone" is convincing as a man whose past has made him weary and mistrusting."—AudioFile Magazine

Praise for STONE COLD

"The author brings back Oliver Stone, with his old friends and older enemies. Baldacci's adept character development coupled with deft narration from Ron McLarty makes for an enjoyable listening experience. Once again, Baldacci creates unique parallel stories that evolve and eventually intertwine. The expert McLarty gives clear and recognizable voices to all the characters....Hidden secrets, political espionage, and personal trust all clash in this fast-paced story."—AudioFile Magazine

PRAISE FOR THE COLLECTORS

"The Speaker of the House is assassinated, and the director of the Library of Congress is found murdered in an impenetrable locked vault. Oliver Stone, de facto leader of the mysterious Camel Club, learns that America's secrets are being sold and that contracts have been let on the lives of U.S. leaders. Tom Wopat depicts Stone and the secretive members of the club with full attention to defining each character. A secondary plot involving con artist Annabelle Conroy, portrayed by Maggi-Meg Reed, is spellbinding. Reed characterizes Conroy with a sexy, commanding voice and flirtatious manner. The fast pace and intricate plot won't disappoint Baldacci fans."—AudioFile Magazine

Biography

David Baldacci's authoritative legal thrillers operate on the irresistible notion that a sinister undercurrent threads through the country's most powerful institutions.

While his stories hinge on the complex machinations behind the presidency, the FBI, the Supreme Court and other spheres of influence, Baldacci (a former Washington, D.C.-based attorney) finds his way into a mystery through the eyes of the innocents. Semi-innocents, at least: small players who often don't realize they're players at all end up hunting down answers, and their hunt becomes the reader's.

According to Baldacci, reading John Irving's The World According to Garp convinced him that he wanted to be a novelist. Absolute Power -- in which a thief finds himself accidentally connected to a murder involving the president and the ensuing coverup -- was hardly Irvingesque; but it did begin Baldacci's friendly relationship with the bestseller lists, which has continued over his writing career.

Baldacci's style is brief and plot-driven, but he's not afraid to linger on macabre and vivid details, such as a rosary clenched in a plane crash victim's hand, or hard-learned lessons from a sniper's life (pack your food so you can find it at night, by touch). These small but memorable -- indeed, almost cinematic -- details give his books another layer that distinguishes them from the average potboiler.

Although the author has occasionally departed from his usual fare (examples include the tenderhearted coming-of-age tale Wish You Well and the holiday-themed adventure The Christmas Train), it is high-octane thrillers that are his true stock in trade. Whether it's a taut stand-alone or a new installment in his Camel Club series, readers know when they crack the spine of a new Baldacci book, they're in for an action-packed page-turner.

Good To Know

Baldacci was a trial lawyer and a corporate lawyer for nine years in Washington, D.C.

He worked his way through college as a Pinkerton security guard and by washing and detailing 18-wheel trucks.

Baldacci writes under his own name except when published in Italy, where he uses a pseudonym because it is the homeland of his ancestors.

Bill Clinton selected The Simple Truth as his favorite novel of 1998, according to Baldacci's web site.

    Camel Club

    I really liked this series. An odd bunch of guys doing stuff behind the scenes in the fight against terrorism. Neat concept that I think works well. Good characters and a plausible story line that continues through the three books. If you like trilogies you will really like these books.

    Absolutely Fantastic!

    I'd never heard of David Baldacci or his books before I picked up this audio book. Quite frankly I only got it because I got 3 audio books for the price of one or two. But it turned out to be fantastic! The characters are endearing and I can't wait to read #4 & #5! My only issue is the description of the characters changed slightly depending on which audio book I was listening to. The books are read by different people which completely threw me cause I would get used to "Kaleb" one of the characters being English and then in the next book he wasn't...WEIRD!!! But I still gave it five stars cause the writing is truly awesome. I highly recommend!

    What an incredible, gripping set of audio books!

    In my opinion, David Baldacci is the quintessential political drama writer. I had already read the books, and I could not resist buying the audio books for a long car trip. I have been so engrossed, that I continued listening anytime I could when I had already arrived at my destination! When I started home, the cd's were already loaded and ready to listen. Just great!

    Great Character Build-Up

    I love the cast of characters and their development in this series. The audio book is paced very well, has a good plot, and great narration. I am anxious to hear the next in this series.

    Camel Club great on the road.

    This collection of three audio books is entertaining and engaging. It is not great literature, but it does make the commute lots more fun. The characters are interesting and different as is the premise: all three novels involve a merry band of conspiracy theory nuts who each have a different strength and unique shortcomings. They are, of course, a loveable bunch and the reader really cares what happens to them.

    The fact that each of the three novels is narrated by a different voice is very distracting and takes some getting used to. One even includes two voices: a man's for most of the narration, but a woman's for a particular character. Once I got used to it, it was okay, but it took a while.

    All in all, these novel provide a pleasant diversion and a few things to think about after you get to work.
