In this all-new short story from #1 New York Times bestselling author David Baldacci, worlds collide when government assassin Will Robie is caught in the crossfire with Oliver Stone and the Camel Club.
Will Robie is closing in on his next target when he finds himself in the middle of a bank heist - and he's taken hostage alongside Oliver Stone. But is this just a simple bank job, or are the robbers after something even more valuable - and dangerous - than the cash in the vault?

It was great to once again listen to the adventures of Oliver Stone and the Camel Club. This is a nice little story. It reminded me of what attracted me to Baldacci's writing in the first place. Baldacci should write more novels for the Camel club series and improve the characters in his latest series. In the Camel club novels we know a bit about the history of all the characters even Oliver, but in the King Maxwell and Robie Real we pretty much just known the dysfunctional background of the female characters which plays into their emotional swings. In this short story Baldacci proves he can still write good characters and plots.
What's not to like when you combine two great series. I sure miss the Camel Club. I'd love to see another book in that series.
Great to get two outstanding characters merged into one novel.
Outstanding! One of my favorite narrators.
Would love full novels that cross mingle Baldacci other characters. Like how Michael Connelly does...
Love the interaction between Robie and Stone. It would be interesting to see how Mr. Baldacci would have the camel club characters and (sometime) partners Robie and Reel cleanup corrupt Washington DC. And PLEASE bring back Mary Chapman from MI 6 (introduced in book 5 Hell's Corner)!
I'm always on the search for engaging, intelligent books & authors who give me a story I can relate to. Through Audible I'm finding a lot! When I'm not reading or listening, I'm writing, cooking, traveling or working on my house or in the yard. Politics is also central in my life; I feel it's important to be aware of what's going on and give voice to protecting all that we value & hold dear.

For a first read of this author, it was a great introduction to his style. I usually stay about from the macho writers as the shoot-em up - blow em up - tough guy thing filled with espionage and high rollers wears thin with me. Once in a while I can handle it and this was just the right amount.
He has a easy down home way of writing - grounded the book and made it feel real.
Nothing jumps out.
BTW - The narrator was great!
Say something about yourself!
I enjoyed this short mix of The Camel Club and Will Robie. I hope there will be more of the two intertwined. I am looking forward to more and hope the wait won't be too long.
I am a working mom and wife and don't have much time to read books, so listening to them in the car is my new hobby!
For a short story, it was ok. It was not my favorite Baldacci story, but that's ok. It was entertaining. I would not waste a credit on it, but if you get it free- it's worth listening to.
