Oliver Stone and his Camel Club are in a race to stop a man who is determined to auction off America to the highest bidder: Roger Seagraves is selling America to her enemies, one devastating secret at a time. On a local level, Annabelle Conroy, the most gifted con artist of her generation, is becoming a bit of a Robin Hood as she plots a monumental scam against one of the most ruthless businessmen on earth. As the killings on both fronts mount, the Camel Club fights the most deadly foes they've ever faced.

    It took too long to get exciting but once it did,I didn't want to put it down. I'm glad I didn't give up on it.

    Baldacci again delivers a twist and turn adventure. The ending is rather abrupt but ok, I always want the story to continue

    But a good story. I enjoy the character of Oliver Stone (John Carr) and his Camel Club buddies. But it's annoying that the first 1-2 words of each chapter do not display in the iBook App, in Portrait Mode, on my iPhone 5s. I have to rotate the device to Landscape, page forward once, read the words, rotate back to my preferred Portrait orientation, and page backwards to finish reading each Chapters first sentence. I have not seen this issue with other iBooks by this author. So annoying...

    Not one of his best! Compared to his other great books this was boring.
  • Inconsistent

    Something was weird about this book--a character was identified as being killed one way at some points in the book and a different way at other times. I searched multiple times and could find no explanation for this. Overall the book was good, but this was a big negative.
  • Impossible to put away

    Baldacci's turn pager style is unequaled. I don't read his books for literary value; I read him for his intense, hard to put away engrossing story telling. He draws the reader into the story and makes him feel the intensity and pace of the action. I can't wait to read the sequel!

    This is a great book! The Camel Club was ok, this is better, fast paced and The Con story line was the best! A Must Read if you like this writer. I can't wait to start reading Stone Cold.
