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.

    "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.

    "Another great Oliver Stone Story"

    From a puzzle point of view, I thought this story was one of Baldacci's best. It starts with a puzzling combination of gun fire and a bomb that goes off near the White House. Oliver Stone is called back into the government by the President to investigate. The plot is a great combination requiring detective work , deductive reasioning and action. For those who have read previous Oliver Stone stories, you know that he is a member of the Camel Club, a group of friends with different skills and background who end up- in the middle of a lot of conspiracies. However, in this story, the other members of the Camel club do not play a particularly large role and you would not miss much if you haven't ready the earlier books.

    I like the new character, Mary Chapman an agent from MI6 who teams with Stone. The story is one that involves multiple governments and you don't know who to trust. The story takes many turns and involves drug cartels, terrorists, government agents from many agencies. The pace is good and it is one of those stories that makes you stay in the car after you arrive at your destination because you have to know what happens next.

    I deducted 1 star from my rating because for some reason, Baldacci' uses the environment that he used in a previous story as a locale for his finish...this was a bit dissappointing but it is still a good read.

    "GTT review of narrator for Hell's Corner"

    I am about 1/3 into this book. I use the actual text and simultaneously listen to the unabridged version because of slight visual impairment. The narrator does not follow the exact text and this is very annoying. This has happened on virtually every page so far. Other narrators have stuck to the text. I would hesitate to order any more books narrated by this individual (-s)....George Tindall

    "Very Disappointing"

    I've listened to the other Camel Club novels by Baldacci and liked them. But this one was boring and the story line very unlikely. Sorry.

    "Baldacci "jumped the shark" with this one!"

    I greatly enjoyed the first 4 books in the Camel Club series.
    Hell's Corner was a serious bore! Terrible plot with ridiculous twists and turns that the characters just narrated what was happening. But the dialog was what really killed it for me. Plodding and pedestrian. They all sounded so dumb, he ruined my image of the characters that I had grown fond of.

    Stop listening with Divine Justice (4th book) and you'll be happy with the series.

    "Love Baldacci and the Camel Club"

    I love David Baldacci and particularly the Camel Club. It is easy to follow and extremely interesting. I did assume one person accurately, but no one else.
