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.

Perfect!

Baldacci writes the perfect mystery with a great blend of characters in the Camel Club. The kind of book you can't wait to get back to.

Another gem from David Baldacci

I have been a fan of Mr. Baldacci since my first Camel Club read in the '90's. He continues to produce great reads/listens. This book was very enjoyable. My husband and I listen as we travel for our grandkids rodeo team. The performance with this book was somewhat lacking. The woman's voice was flat and unemotional. I didn't care for her at all. Tom Wopat was ok, in his normal voice he was good, but his characters he had to portray was a bit forced. Sometimes it was difficult to listen but the story remained engaging.
