Publisher's Summary

The U.S. Speaker of the House is assassinated in a terrifyingly precise execution in the heart of Washington, D.C. In a quieter corner of the nation's capital, the rare book room of the Library of Congress, a reclusive, wealthy scholar drops dead under mysterious circumstances that leave no clues. Following on the heels of the natural death of the Speaker of the House, the city and the nation begin to tremble. In California, a beautiful but capable woman is planning and executing one of the most brilliant cons on record.

All the while, "Oliver Stone" and his quirky Camel Club stand by and observe as the genius of their collective perspective begins to connect the dots between these seemingly disparate events--and they realize they must act, and act quickly, before their country falls victim to a silent yet bloody coup.

    "A Very Enjoyable Listen"

    I have enjoyed most of Baldacci's books,however the Camel Club series, while taking awhile to take to the theme, are my favorites.

    "Bad Narration"

    This has to be the absolute worst narration I've ever had the displeasure to experience.

    "Not near as good"

    I really enjoyed the Camel Club and have recommended it highly so I was excited for the return of the characters. However, this story gets annoying at times and doesn't seem to flow.

    "The Collectors (unabridged)"

    I've found David Baldacci's books to be engaging and great for long car rides. My low rating does NOT reflect on the book itself, but rather on the narrators. I may have high standards (e.g.,Scott Brick & Patricia Kalember) but this narration just didn't work. Having a primary male narrator with other voices is distracting. The female character would speak and the male narrator would add, "she said with a sigh." I tried twice to listen to this book but this back-and-forth reading style was so fragmented that I have chosen to buy the actual book and read it myself!

    "Better than the Camel Club!"

    Great follow-on to a fantastic book! Really can't wait for the Camel Club to come back and see what happens!!! The ending left me wanting the next book now! Come on David, write fast!

    "Poorly written"

    I will listen to audio books that I would not be willing to read. Despite my high tolerance for bad writing in audio books, this ranks as one of the most poorly written.

    "Fascinating Cliffhanger"

    Great extension of the Camel Club characters. Two separate stories are weaved throughout the text until one character crosses over into the other story.

    Agent Alex Ford isn't used very much which is a shame as his character in the first installment was pretty good.

    Main story wraps up pretty good, but secondary story is cut off abruptly leaving the anticipation that a third installment of the Camel Club is forthcoming.

    Narration on this one is much better as multiple readers are used.

    "Fabulous!"

    Typical Baldacci, great characters and good plots. Always a favorite and never disapoints. A good sequal to the Camel Club.
