Publisher's Summary

It exists at the fringes of Washington, D.C., has no power, and consists solely of four eccentric and downtrodden members whom society has forgotten. Their simple goal is to find the "truth" behind their country's actions.

One man leads this aging, ragtag crew. He has no known past and has taken the name "Oliver Stone". Day and night, Stone and his friends study wild conspiracy theories, current events, and the machinations of government, hoping to discover some truth that will hold America's leaders accountable to its citizens. Yet never in Stone's wildest nightmares could he imagine the conspiracy the Camel Club is about to uncover.

After witnessing a shocking murder, the Club is slammed headfirst into a plot that threatens the very security of the nation, full of stunning twists, high-stakes intrigue, and global gamesmanship rocketing to the Oval Office and beyond. Soon the Club must join forces with veteran Secret Service agent Alex Ford, who becomes an unwilling participant in one of the most chilling spectacles to ever take place on American soil. It's an event that may well be the catalyst for the long-threatened Armageddon between two different worlds, and all that stands in the way of this apocalypse are five unexpected heroes.

In The Camel Club, best-selling author David Baldacci paints a frighteningly vivid portrait of a world that could be our own very soon, and the few people who have a chance to stop the chaos.

    "Great start for a series"

    Baldacci has set up a good cast of characters that should be developed into a descent string of books.

    "Entertaining"

    Qualifies as a book you are sad to hear it end. Would have liked to see a little bit more romance for the title character...Oliver Stone. What annoys me is someone his age could retain his killing edge but seems oblivious to the lady trying to seduce him in the next tent.

    Was very pleased with the narrator and the book content however, dont get me wrong.

    Love this author and his style of writing. This is consistent with his normal releases, and it was an entertaining listen.

    No complaints. This is what I expect in an entertaining read.

    "Great Listen"

    I really enjoyed this book. It was nice to have a wide array of characters to keep track of and I learned quite a bit about middle-eastern thought.

    "NOt his best work"

    Although this was a fun read, I can't say it was that compelling or held my interest, but if you want something light hearted for a quiet day then by all means go for it.

    "Overall good listen!"

    This was a great book. In the end, I thought the plot didn't QUITE make it to that climax that I had expected but it did come together nicely. While the book had a natural political bent, it did at times sound like the author was an apologist for America-haters but it was a good read though it runs the risk of offending political sensitivities.

    "Entertaining"

    This book was entertaining, fun and exciting. I found myself yelling at my Ipod when a character made a bad move. The only reason I didn't give it four stars wss that it got bogged down at times in making a political point.

    "wimpy reader"

    interesting story and characters made unbelievable by a whinny reader presentation. Some of the dialogue wasd gratuitous and added little to the story. I just had trouble listening to the tone and attitude of the reader. Probably a better read tha listen.

    "Unrealistic plot, bloated writing"

    I forgot how little I enjoy Baldacci's books; they're long, poorly-written, lacking in any substance. This one was no different; his convoluted, unrealistic, totally absurd plot made for a very boring book. I won't be listening to any more of his books, and wouldn't recommend this one.

    "Bad Camel"

    I have read all of the authors other books. Either someone else has been writing them or Baldacci has lost his touch. If you want to make political statements or forward your own agenda keep it in the oped pages. I will not be reading/listening to any more of Baldacci's rhetoric.
