7 of 7 people found the following review helpful By Donald Mitchell #1 HALL OF FAMETOP 50 REVIEWER on Dec 16 2010
Format: Hardcover
"You shall not pervert justice; you shall not show partiality, nor take a bribe, for a bribe blinds the eyes of the wise and twists the words of the righteous." -- Deuteronomy 16:19 (NKJV)

In many police procedurals, good use of made of conflicts between fiercely independent detectives and their bosses. In more complex stories, the need to overcome the FBI is often added as an element. Since 9/11, the Department of Homeland Security often comes in as a fourth group of cross-interest.

Hell's Corner leaves all those "simple" plots behind by adding several more layers and levels of cross-purposes and hidden motives. It's enough to frustrate all but the most dedicated lovers of conspiracy theories. If you don't like such crosscurrents, this book may move in too complicated and slow ways for you.

In the earliest Camel Club books, the whole club is engaged in "saving" the United States from early in the story. In Hell's Corner, it takes almost half the book before the Camel Club begins to be fully active. Even then, the Camel Club is not the center of the story. The book is really about Oliver Stone (aka John Carr) and his conflict with arch enemies who have him covered. So if you really enjoy the parts of the series about the Camel Club members, this book may seem light to you in that regard.

Actually, the book is a throwback to the assassin versus assassin stories that were so popular in the 1970s and 1980s . . . with the complication of a strange mystery to solve.

The book does have some interesting qualities, beginning with an improbable series of events that have a most unexpected explanation. It takes a long time for the answer to be revealed, and the book becomes much more interesting and fast paced from that point on.

The Camel Club members seem to play a peripheral role in this book. Story points explain the reason for less prominent Camel Club activities but I would have liked to read more about each member. This story lives up to the normal convoluted plots that Baldacci provides. Overall a good read.

I read this one a while ago but can remember this is one of Baldacci's better stories. Hope you'll enjoy it.
