Publisher's Summary

Oliver Stone and the Camel Club return in #1 bestselling author David Baldacci's most stunning adventure yet.

An attack on the heart of power . . .
In sight of the White House . . .
At a place known as . . .

Hell's Corner.

John Carr, aka Oliver Stone-once the most skilled assassin his country ever had-stands in Lafayette Park in front of the White House, perhaps for the last time. The president has personally requested that Stone serve his country again on a high-risk, covert mission. Though he's fought for decades to leave his past career behind, Stone has no choice but to say yes.

Then Stone's mission changes drastically before it even begins. It's the night of a state dinner honoring the British prime minister. As he watches the prime minister's motorcade leave the White House that evening, a bomb is detonated in Lafayette Park, an apparent terrorist attack against both leaders. It's in the chaotic aftermath that Stone takes on a new, more urgent assignment: find those responsible for the bombing.

British MI-6 agent Mary Chapman becomes Stone's partner in the search for the unknown attackers. But their opponents are elusive, capable, and increasingly lethal; worst of all, it seems that the park bombing may just have been the opening salvo in their plan. With nowhere else to turn, Stone enlists the help of the only people he knows he can trust: the Camel Club. Yet that may be a big mistake.

In the shadowy worlds of politics and intelligence, there is no one you can really trust. Nothing is really what it seems to be. And Hell's Corner truly lives up to its name. This may be Oliver Stone's and the Camel Club's last stand.

    "HELLS CORNER"

    I just didn't enjoy this booik as much as I have loved the
    Camel Club series. Can't just say why unless it was the British dame.

    "Disappointed"

    Have enjoyed the Camel Club series so much, but this latest installment has been difficult to embrace. Too disjointed somehow, endless plot possibilities spinning, and not enough good character development. I found myself wishing for the end just to be finished.

    "Hell's Corner"

    I'm a big Baldacci fan, but this one kind of dragged for me, as if the author just had to make it longer by adding more of the same.

    "This is no Camel Club Novel"

    If you have read the previous Camel Club - Oliver Stone novels by Baldacci this one is a real disappointment. There is no Camel Club to speak of. Annabelle has been reduced to a whiner. Oliver is now on a first name basis with the President. Now the most unbelievable curveball, Oliver is now a Federal Agent. He acts just like the Feds he hated in the previous Camel Club novels. This book is B O R I N G ! ! The ending is OK but it's a long boring ride to the finish.

    "How Not to Produce an Audio Book"

    Why did they use different actors to read the various parts, thereby constantly breaking the flow? Why use sound effects? Is phoney gunfire really necessary? Is this an audio book or a radio play? These are all questions that must have occurred to the producers. If all the audio books I bought were this poor, Audible dot com would sell me no more of these "productions" to me.

    "A could not take it any longer."

    I want my click back! The accents and change of narators were irritating.
    Slow and boooring, I had to give up about two thirds the way through,
    I don't know or care if the hero made it through.
    I am a fan of Baldacci and this is the worst of his books, in my opinion.

    "Worst Baldacci ever"

    Being an avid fan of David Baldacci and of The Camel Club series this book was a big disappointment. The plot was fumbled and bumbled from the start, he never really engaged the other members of The Camel Club, and all of the dead end clues got old really quick. I've never considered not finishing one of Baldacci's books, but almost quit this one several times and in the end wish that I had!

    "Too Many Notes"

    I'm a Baldacci/Camel Club fan so hung in there to the end. However, the story seemed disjointed. Felt like Baldacci needed to add a few more pages so he kept coming up with new twists. I was glad to finish. Three stars only out of fan loyalty!

    "Triumphant"

    Perhaps the best book he has ever written and certainly the best of the Camel Club. Ron McLarty is a brilliant narrator. The sound effects were a nice addition. Thanks for the many sleepless nights I stayed up listening to this story unfold.

    "Disappointing."

    I'm a big fan of the Camel Club, but think the concept is getting a little stale. The chemistry between the members of the Club and Oliver Stone just wasn't there in this book. The use of 2 narrators was distracting. It made the characters seem like they were just "phoning it in.: The silence between chapters was also long, and added to the disruption.
