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.

    "Shockingly terrible book"

    I am really surprised that Baldacci wrote such a horrible unorganized confusing and silly book. I have read 4 other of his very good thrillers and they each hung together with good plots and character development. Whatever the ???Camel Club??? is, it surely was never explained other then that they were a bunch of semi-homeless guys who read alot in many different languages. I only finished it because I just like his other books so much. I hope this doesn???t forecast some weird change for Baldacci.

    "Good until the last 4 chapters"

    I really enjoyed the book until the last 4 chapters where it felt like a writing deadline slammed the book closed while he tried to shoehorn in all the rest of his ideas.

    "If I thought America was the root of all evil"

    I would really like this book. I thought it was fairly well done, but my problem is that I really like this country and do not believe the Muslim extremists are all fluffy good and we are the big bad wolf. Too bad the author lets his political views blast through like he did in this book. It made for a tough listen at times.

    "Slow at first.........."

    If I had another book to listen to I would had skipped this one. I did start to enjoy the second half of it , but found the premise totally unrealistic. Entertaining and worth the wait for it to become a good book. Should not be included in any great works of fiction.

    "I hope there are more to come"

    This is a good story with wonderful characters. I hope there are more to come so I can get to know them better. The plot keeps you guessing.

    "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.
