Bagger's menace pales next to newcomer Harry Finn's lethality. Seeming a normal family-man, Finn has already killed three men, with more targets to come. When Finn also sets his bulls-eye on Stone, his reason why will be the greatest shock of all, making listeners reconsider their beliefs in good and evil.
As bodies and institutions topple, the story rockets toward a shattering finale that will leave the survivors of this explosive tale changed forever.

"Gripping, chilling and full of surprises." (Publishers Weekly)
Clunky dialogue and cliched characters riddle this thriller. The author obviously knows about the underbelly of the military and its workings, but a horrible choice in narrator and cliched characters and stilted dialogue really hurt this author. This will never be made into a film. James Patterson is a step or two up from this author, but also has some dialogue and character issues, namely stemming from their love of melodrama.
If you read/listened to The Collectors, you will know what one of the plots is. It is a little frustrating at times to switch between the two story lines, but they're both written well enough that they both capture your attention. Stone Cold was a very engaging listen, and as anyone who listened to The Collectors will tell you, it was SOOOOO much easier to follow, as the narration was spectacular, with great voice characterizations. Maybe the female voices could have used a bit softer tones, but that's just nit picking. I am curious to see how Baldacci will follow up on this, and what the next chapter in the saga of the Camel Club will be.
You never know what is going happen next. One of his best books. Alot of action and wondering how everyone will come together in the end. Also Ron M is one of the best readers around. I recommend this book
I enjoy all of David's books so far. The narrator makes the story interesting. It does move along quite well, and the twists in the story always kept me on my toes.
I have been using audible for several years now. I have rated books but never felt compelled to write a review. The character development was outstanding, I experienced an uncommon bond with the characters. I laughed, I cried. You rob your self by not enjoying this book.
If you liked the other "Camel Club" books you'll love this one. I enjoyed the dual (or more)story line(s), the characters were true and the good guys actually win with some satisfaction. The narration was wonderful (unlike The Collectors which was abysmal) thanks to Ron McLarty. I highly recommend this book and hope that Mr. Baldachi will serve up a fourth in the series.
