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.

By Toni Osborne TOP 100 REVIEWER on Jan. 28 2012
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Book 5, in the Camel Club series

At first glance the sheer size of this book could be quite intimidating, its paperback version holds over 650 pages, enough to scare away some but definitely not the die-hard fans like myself.

The story opens with Stone contemplating his next covert assignment while walking through Lafayette Park near the White House, suddenly machine gun fire fills the air and a bomb detonates narrowly missing the motorcade of the U.S. president and Britain's prime minister. Fearing the attack may be a botched assassination attempt, the authorities in charge quickly reassess Stone's mission, the overwhelming importance of what has just transpired has him assigned to assist British agent Mary Chapman of MI-6 to flush out the terrorists and their motives. You can always be sure that whatever Stone is involved his buddies at the Camel Club are never far behind'...

The mystery moves through Washington's halls of power and eventually to the Bronx and on to Murder Mountain, West Virginia. Stone and his cohorts are faced with 'nanobot' technology and the unknown magnitude biological weapons can have on a populated area. A Turkish professor supposedly on the trail of Osama bin Laden and a beautiful lobbyist who uses her assets to the max adds flair and intrigue to mystery, danger and excitement lurks at every corner'...

Baldacci's forte is his skill at tight plotting, it rattles along at a great pace with many twists and red-herrings, the short chapters act like a pace maker in overdrive. The action is quite intense from the start. The storyline is a blast from start to finish it is not a fluffy read or a mystery that we can predict each move in advance. Mr.

C'est au début frustrant pour un habitué aux romans de Balducci cci: les personnages dans le premier tiers (30%) du roman tournent autour d'un trou en philosophant. C'est lent et le héros semble fatigué. Il n'y a pratiquement aucune action. Puis le camel club embarque et l'action commence à la Balducci. Là cela ne lâche pas jusqu'à la fin. Si vous avez de la patience au début sans vous décourager cela en vaut la peine

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.

As usual, David Baldacci came through with the Camel Club members. Just when you think you have it all figured out, he sends you an unexpected twist. I always wonder where else he can take us with this motley crew!! Well worth the read.
