Publisher's Summary

Oliver Stone and the Camel Club return in #1 bestselling author David Baldacci's most stunning adventure yet.

An attack on the heart of power . . .
In sight of the White House . . .
At a place known as . . .

Hell's Corner.

John Carr, aka Oliver Stone-once the most skilled assassin his country ever had-stands in Lafayette Park in front of the White House, perhaps for the last time. The president has personally requested that Stone serve his country again on a high-risk, covert mission. Though he's fought for decades to leave his past career behind, Stone has no choice but to say yes.

Then Stone's mission changes drastically before it even begins. It's the night of a state dinner honoring the British prime minister. As he watches the prime minister's motorcade leave the White House that evening, a bomb is detonated in Lafayette Park, an apparent terrorist attack against both leaders. It's in the chaotic aftermath that Stone takes on a new, more urgent assignment: find those responsible for the bombing.

British MI-6 agent Mary Chapman becomes Stone's partner in the search for the unknown attackers. But their opponents are elusive, capable, and increasingly lethal; worst of all, it seems that the park bombing may just have been the opening salvo in their plan. With nowhere else to turn, Stone enlists the help of the only people he knows he can trust: the Camel Club. Yet that may be a big mistake.

In the shadowy worlds of politics and intelligence, there is no one you can really trust. Nothing is really what it seems to be. And Hell's Corner truly lives up to its name. This may be Oliver Stone's and the Camel Club's last stand.

    "Another great Baldacci!"

    Another great Oliver Stone story...love that guy! I really like the fact that the story is read by a male and a female voice... Ron McLarty & Orlagh Cassidy add so much to the enjoyment of the listen!

    "Terrible accents/dialects-wish they'd just read it"

    I love Camel Club books, hands down. However, I really wish the narrators would leave accents and dialects to those who wield them effortlessly and correctly. I find the attempts to modify speech very distracting, which is too bad for such a great book!

    "I agree"

    I agree with some of the reviewers. I wish I had read the reviews before I wasted a credit on this book. I went off of past successes. The woman narrator was nothing but annoying, with her different voices and all of the women had very demeaning and made to look stupid roles. I struggled to finish the book. If it had been a library audiobook on loan I would have taken it back early.

    "Asking for my credit back."

    Oh good grief. Sound effects. If I want sound effects I will watch tv or attend a play. When I listen to an Audiobook, I do so to be able to READ at times when I cannot look at the printed version. I do not need a play performed for me. It is bad enough to have to endure 2 readers, but Nod-able should disclose when one of its offerings includes sound effects.

    "very entertaining!"

    I have to disagree with some of the purists that have previously reviewed the book-I'm glad that I went ahead and downloaded the book. I am a big Baldacci fan and Camel Club fan, and although the Club is not as involved as we have seen in the past, we get a great view of Oliver Stone. Several new characters were very well developed. Probably not the best in the series, which is why I gave it 4 stars, but very entertaining nontheless. I actually enjoyed the female voices being read separately-it added to the experience. Well worth it!

    "Baldacci did it again!"

    Another great book from Baldacci. He is one of my favorite writers and how could you not love Oliver Stone. Ron McLarty is a wonderful narrator. Keep them coming David and I'll keep listening!

    "What the Hell?"

    Bad, bad, bad. Incredible plot, too many 'convenient' explanations without support. This author has gone steadily downhill, in my opinion. Skip it.

    "Uninteresting"

    How many times can you go over the same material and say the exact same thing? They could have made this book much shorter by not constantly repeating the same thing! I have really liked his other books, but this was a drugery to get through!

    "Baldacii???s GIFT"

    I am a fan of David Baldacii???s GIFT, of be one of the best wordsmiths out there. I just finished Hell???s Corner. IT???S GREAT!!! I stared on the way home from work, but I could not stop listening. No TV for me, I had to stop for bed. The next day was my day off. I got up, and I finished listening to it. WOW!! Now! If you are not familiar with The Camel Club series... Maybe you should start with The Camel Club, then you will get to know who John Carr also know as Oliver Stone really is. It is a stand alone book, but I like to start at the beginning of a series.

    "Love Oliver Stone"

    I was very happy to see that David Baldacci continued on with the Camel Club books, I truly thought they ended with the last book and was very sad. This book was as great as the others and character development was as good as always. I look forward to the next.
