The Camel Club (Camel Club Series #1) by David Baldacci

The Camel Club. Four members, four stories, one philosophy. Men with no past and no future, they spend their time studying wild conspiracy theories that reach to the highest levels of government. One fateful night ,The Camel Club witnesses a shocking murder and realizes that even their wildest theories are not as horrifying as the truth...

Soon, they have an ally in the person of Alex Ford, a career Secret Service agent who,while investigating the murder, realizes that a far larger crime is being put into place. Ford and the members of The Camel Club must subvert a misguided mission that threatens to usher in a terrifying new era, sculpted by one man's horribly distorted vision of justice...

THE CAMEL CLUB is vintage Baldacci: intelligent, terrifying, thrilling fiction that could be tomorrow's fact.

This book was such a great read. The characters were so developed and interesting and the story was full of twists and turns. David Baldacci never disappoints with his writing. "The Camel Club" was an 'edge-of-your-seat' novel. It was great for an escape.

I haven't quite finished it yet, but from what I am reading of it so far it is really good. I will give a more elaborate review when I am done reading it. I can tell you I went to go hear David Baldacci speak and I was highly impressed. He was a good, humorous speaker :)

Baldacci is never, never disappointing. This has been one of my very favorite series. I just love the characters. This one's a keeper!

The characters in "The Camel Club" kept me guessing-are they really who I think they are? I am a fan of David Baldacci and he didn't let me down in this book. He writes this book with many ups and downs and twists and turns and many surprises concerning the characters. This is an "I can't put it down" book. Loved it.

This was my second attempt at a book by David Baldacci, who I know is very popular. Sadly, I still don't know why that is. This novel, while interesting in its many sides of American/Muslim relations has so many impossible to believe moments and coincidental happenings that belief is totally suspended. The climatic ending actual reads like '80s GI Joe cartoon. That's probably too harsh but that's the first thing I thought. Another problem was the title/series itself is the "Camel Club" although the members save one are almost purposeless. So, I'm glad I read a novel by a popular author to see if I agreed and I simply don't. Skip it.

It's hard to imagine the characters Baldacci creates actually existing much less getting together in the fashion so described and forming a club. Given that, the setting is Washington, D. C., which means anything is possible. The premise is farfetched but plausible for the D. C. espionage genre. The characters could have used a little more warming up at the first, but they each hit their stride as the mysterious Oliver Stone leads the way. This one will take you away to a scary place you hope doesn't really exist and have you cheering for the underdogs. If you enjoyed this introduction to the series, you'll really enjoy the next two as they flow better and you're familiar with the players. Keep reading!

I loved this book. I sent this book to my G'son and he can't wait for the next one.

I read this book for my discussion group and while it may seem far-fetched it scared me to death regarding the possibilities. I saw Seven Days in May when it first came out and had the exact same feeling then, just recently watched Enemy of the State which brought technology into a really scary realm of possibility! I hope we have real 'watch dogs' out there. But since our government is now in the hads of of 'haves' it doesn't seem that any of these fictional stories couldn't end up a reality! I totally enjoyed the book, even though it scared the bejabbers out of me. I don't know why I keep reading and watching these things.
