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.

    "the camel club"

    it's amazing that the synopsis of the book is so different from the actual book....it's like the person never read (or listened to) the book.
    the story is ok and and has some nice twists but is not in the "can't stop listening" category.

    "Not worth the time"

    I really like most of this author's books but this one was really weak. the plot did not make a lot of sense and he never really developed the characters. I really did not like all the political ramblings in the book.

    "Entertaining"

    The narrator was good. I enjoyed the eclectic cast of characters. Suspend belief and remember it is fiction. I enjoyed the ride.

    "Very poor writing, even for espionage fluff"

    Some of the dialog was of the oldest cliches. Even the title concept, a club? An ex-assassin and a few geeks holding meetings like 8 year olds? Plus. the sections in which the author editorializes about US Middle East policies, come up again and again with the same basic tune. I found myself skipping ahead 5 minutes when I got to an annoying section, and listening to the end not because I cared what happened, but because I was fascinated at what outlandish crp came next. Like looking at a highway accident.

    "Disappointing"

    Plot and characters were weak and they never developed. Ending was as if author ran out of time.
