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.

    "Genius"

    This is the best of Dave book I've read yet. The complexity and enormous emotions that came with this story blows my mind. It takes more than a brilliant mind to write a story with the level of complexity and yet keep the reader at the edge of their seats. And for Ron, you brought the story to life like no one else can do. Thank you.

    "Parts were a bit predictable compared to his other"

    Parts were a bit predictable compared to his other books. The twists were in where was it going next vs who was behind it. That, coupled with the length didn't keep me quite as engaged. The little twist at the end was a surprise though and a nice way to wrap.

    "Why bag on multiple readers & new characters"

    It's hard to understand why so many folks seem to struggle with multiple readers doing voices for the audiobooks. This book was a very enjoyable listen! Story was very compelling, and I always love how Baldacci works in new characters to explore dynamics between 'old' Camel Club Members, Stone, & new folks. Baldacci fans need to relax & allow him to entertain them.

    "Poor Oliver Stone"

    I love Baldacci's books and do enjoy Oliver but this was a bit sad. Oliver Stone has had so much gusto but seems almost needy in this one. I'd listen again but think I'd still feel sorry for John Carr.

    "AUTHOR WANDERS AIMLESSLY"

    Baldacci, who usually writes great books, wrote a book this time that wanders endlessly and should have ended 50 chapters before it did. I was disappointed with what we in the military call the lack of the 7 P's: Proper Prior Planning Prevents Piss Poor Performance. The narration, however, was excellent.

    I am a veteran, so I understand the dedication to an institution that is corrupt and I understand the pride in your government. This book has all of that as well as the twists. Good storyline!!

    Story
    "My least favorite of the series by far."
    What disappointed you about Hell's Corner?

    It was extremely over-contrived. Baldacci kept trying to throw in twist after twist. Oliver Stone continually made deductions and arrived at conclusions that would be a HUGE stretch. In addition, the dialogue was often cheesy.


    Would you ever listen to anything by David Baldacci again?

    The more I listen to him, the more I doubt it.


    What didn’t you like about Ron McLarty and Orlagh Cassidy ’s performance?

    McLarty was fine, but not as strong as in some of the series' other books. Cassidy was horrible at the accents she was trying to pull off. The British accent was okay, but her U.S. southern accent was very distracting. Even when trying to voice a charactier with no accent at all, it seem like she struggled.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    Not so much. I was ready for it to be over while it still had hours left...and that's rare for me.
