But his freedom comes at a steep price: The assassinations he carried out prompt the highest levels of the U.S. government to unleash a massive manhunt. Behind the scenes, master spy Macklin Hayes is playing a very personal game of cat and mouse. He, more than anyone, wants Stone dead.
With their friend and unofficial leader in hiding, the members of the Camel Club risk everything to save him. Now, as the hunters close in, Stone's flight from the demons of his past will take him from the power corridors of Washington, D.C., to the small, isolated coal-mining town of Divine, Virginia-and into a world every bit as lethal as the one he left behind.

I am not sure when I will stop picking up David Baldacci thriller flicks.
Granted, this novel is well composed as usual and the writer analyzes it well and does not leave anything in the plot line to chance. However, for everthing else, it is like a spiced-up orange juice when compared to well-aged wine. And despite the writer's attempts at giving his plot some depth of meaning, it comes out flat and unidimentional (think "Those Who Trespass" as a dot, "A Prisoner of Birth" is bi-dimentional and "pillars of the earth" is, tri-).
As unrealistic, sappy and bad as a book can get. This book starts out great but by the 2nd half you are just begging for it to end, I have to say this was the worst listen of any of the books I have ever heard.
Enough with the stupid sound effect and music in audio book. I dont care how good the story is, these effects ruin it for me.
There are no listener reviews for this title yet.
