#1 New York Times bestselling author David Baldacci returns with an unforgettable novel of revenge, conspiracy, and murder that brings a band of unlikely heroes face-to-face with their greatest threat.

Oliver Stone, the leader of the mysterious group known as the Camel Club, is both feared and respected by those who have crossed his path. Keeping a vigilant watch over our leaders in Washington, DC, the Camel Club has won over some allies, but it has also earned formidable enemies—including those in power who will do anything to prevent Stone and his friends from uncovering the hidden, secret work of the government.

Annabelle Conroy, an honorary member of the Camel Club, is also the greatest con artist of her generation. She has swindled forty million dollars from casino king Jerry Bagger, the man who murdered her mother. Now he’s hot on her trail with only one goal in mind: to kill her. But as Stone and the Camel Club circle the wagons to protect Annabelle, a new opponent, who makes Bagger’s menace pale by comparison, suddenly arises.

One by one, men from Stone’s shadowy past are turning up dead. Behind this slaughter stands one man: Harry Finn. To almost all who know him, Finn is a doting father and loving husband who uses his skills to keep our nation safe. But the other face of Harry Finn is that of an unstoppable killer who has set his lethal bull’s-eye on Oliver Stone. With Finn, Stone may well have met his match.

As Annabelle and the Camel Club fight for their lives, the twists and turns whipsaw, leading to a finale that is as explosive as it is shattering. When buried secrets are at last violently resurrected, the members of the Camel Club left standing will be changed forever.

With unrelenting pacing, stunning reversals, and two of the most compelling characters in modern fiction, Stone Cold is David Baldacci at his breathtaking best.

    Kirkus Reviews

  • “Baldacci…really knows how to spin a yarn, and with McLarty he gets a narrator who adds emotional depth to his characters without slowing down the breathless pace of his prose. McLarty uses his distinctive, almost avuncular delivery to excellent purpose in this action-packed thriller...But his art becomes more apparent as he effectively captures the voices of Annabelle, Finn, and a gallery of other characters, including a bitter elderly Russian woman and a world-weary Irish-American man, providing them all a dimension.”

    Publishers Weekly (audio review)

  • “Baldacci’s adept character development coupled with deft narration from Ron McLarty makes for an enjoyable listening experience. Once again, Baldacci creates unique parallel stories that evolve and eventually intertwine. The expert McLarty gives clear and recognizable voices to all the characters. In particular, his consistent accents for the old Russian woman and for the acerbic Irish man capture the story’s emotions and help bring home the plotHidden secrets, political espionage, and personal trust all clash in this fast-paced story.”

    " Just a fun read, especially for those who are followers of Baldacci's "Camel Club." "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Bob | 2/15/2014

    " Read this on a short business trip. Very good "Camel Club" book. I think the Camel Club series is the best stuff he has done since "The Winner". "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Bbb | 2/9/2014

    " I'm a sucker for spies stories, I read this one in 24 hours, bought it at the airport before a 5 hrs. flight, I couldn't put it down. It's one of those books that as you read them it seems you are watching a film, I'll be reading more of Oliver Stones' Camel Club, too bad I started on the 3rd book of the series... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Nichol | 2/5/2014

    " I had to read Stone Cold because The Collectors leaves you knowing that the Camel Club isn't finished yet. Although I enjoyed the story, it wasn't quite as thrilling as Collectors. Still, it is a very enjoyable read. "
