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 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.

    "Worst audio book I've encountered in over 10 years"

    This has to be the worst ever. I may never buy a Baldacci again. Sophomoric, unbelievable, and 'padded' to make it longer. I so wish I'd taken the time to read the reviews (I usually do). I truly believe most listeners could do a better job. Mr. Baldacci should be embarrassed as he takes our money to the bank!

    "Awful, Just Plain Awful"

    I have to agree with the other reviewers who have given this book a bad rating. I kept waiting for the book to get better, but it never did. It was all I could do to stick with the story - hoping that it would improve - but all I got was a lame story that retreaded every tired cliche from Baldacci's previous Camel Club novels. Nothing original in this latest addition to the series. Don't waste your credits.

    "Terrible"

    Two narrotors doesn't work. I can't tell if the story is good because the reading is so annoying.

    "Beyond Waaaay Bad!"

    This book is outrageously horrible. Trite conversation, unbelievable characters with no character development, no editing for grammatical errors. I think Baldacci must dash one of these into a tape recorder and off directly to the publisher whenever he needs a little money. He can do so much better (e.g. Simple Genius). Give this one a miss...if there were a choice lower than one star, I would have chosen it!

    "Disapointing at best"

    I was reluctant to order this since I felt DB was going down hill w/ the Camel Club. I chose to give him another go based on his previous works (and the fact that my selection window was about to close). This book is not much more than a Marvel or DC comic! Some of the reading is good, but some is dry and without any relationship between characters. The female British agent must have called in her part from across the pond. I am only half through the first part and don't know if I can go on! Sorry but don't waste your time or money.
