Book Description

November 2010
The Camel Club returns in the breathtaking follow up to "Divine Justice" from the number one international bestselling author. On the night of the State Dinner honouring the British Prime Minister, Oliver Stone witnesses an explosion as the motorcade leaves the White House. A bomb has been detonated in what looks like a terrorist plot directed at the President and the Prime Minister. In the aftermath, British MI5 agent Mary Chapman, an experienced, lethal operative with an agenda of her own, is sent to assist and coordinate the investigation alongside American authorities. Stone, together with Harry Finn, Alex Ford and the rest of the Camel Club, is drawn into the inquiry. But everything is not what it seems, and what happened in the park may not have been the actual plan. It seems the mysterious attackers had another target in their sights, and it's up to the Camel Club to stop them, or face the catastrophic results.

By Donald Mitchell #1 HALL OF FAME TOP 50 REVIEWER
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.
