Oliver Stone and his Camel Club are in a race to stop a man who is determined to auction off America to the highest bidder: Roger Seagraves is selling America to her enemies, one devastating secret at a time.

I did not read the first book in the series, Camel Club, and that did not stop me from enjoying this book. The double plot is nice. The stories are enough separate and enough connected that it is very entertaining and appropriate to the full story. Most action thriller books like this often bridge from the unlikely and improbable to the impossible. Baldacci is able to approach but not cross the line to the impossible. This makes the book much more satisifying. The characters seem too human to be immortal. I was suprised that they all made it through. The next book in the series, Stone Cold is even better.

Continues the Camel Club group. Mostly set in the Library of Congress and lots of goodies about rare books. Introduces con belle Annabelle Conroy--a great addition. Speaker of the House, head librarian of LOC killed for starters.

Despite being a quick read, it was not one of Baldacci's best works. There were holes in the plot and I doubted it's entire plausibility. After reading all of the back story I wanted to know more about what would happen to Anabelle Conroy, yet I was left empty. The one plot that did conclude seemed to end quickly and not full of suspense in comparison to other details from the back story. The introduction of the characters was strange. Without previously reading the Camel Club, I had no idea who the group of four men were. I quickly forgot each of the Camel Club's characters (or at least the back story) until later in the story when their names reappeared when the 2 plots merge.While the ending seems prime for a follow up book, I'm not so sure I care that much to see how the entire thing ends.

The second book in the series did give me the opportunity to learn more about some of the characters; however, other characters were absent (or virtually absent) and the personality quirks of one of the more interesting characters were virtually eliminated. Another interesting story, but somehow Baldacci's writing just never manages to grab me as much as I'd like.

I didn't realize this was one of a series. Actually I have the book on CD, one of the few books available at the Library as they change over from tape to CD. I "read" it as I excercise at the gym. This is my second Baldacci, who is not one of my usual "reads". I was attracted by the LC connection but am beginning to dislike the violence. I find listening to books less satifactory than reading but it's better than dreary morning TV.

I gave this book a three basically because although the writing was good. The ending left something to be desired.

Compelling storylines which left you wanting to read the next book in the Camel Club. The details made it as though you are there with the characters.
