Publisher Description

Welcome to the Camel Club. Existing at the fringes of Washington, DC, the Club consists of four eccentric members. Led by a mysterious man known as “Oliver Stone,” they study conspiracy theories, current events, and the machinations of government to discover the “truth” behind the country’s actions. Their efforts bear little fruit—until the group witnesses a shocking murder…and become embroiled in an astounding, far-reaching conspiracy. Now the Club must join forces with a Secret Service agent to confront one of the most chilling spectacles ever to take place on American soil—an event that may trigger the ultimate war between two different worlds. And all that stands in the way of this apocalypse is five unexpected heroes.

Quotes

  • “A terrific read.”

    - Toronto Sun
  • “Exciting.”

    - San Francisco Chronicle
  • “Features Baldacci’s trademark plot twists and cat-and-mouse chases, as well as a superbly tense grand finale.”

    - Richmond Times-Dispatch
  • “An original, effervescent thriller…Page-turning fiction that grips and scares and offers plenty to think about later.”

    - Toledo Blade
  • “Baldacci is a master of writing page-turning conspiracy thrillers. There’s a bunch of other stuff that goes on in this story that complicates the plot and adds to the twists and turns.”

    - Strand Magazine
  • “The high-concept payoff…is a doozy…Baldacci maintains interest during the long buildup by supplying fascinating historical facts, amusing characters, high-tech spy lore, and the backstories of his super agents, both good and evil. As fans of this writer know, years of experience have made him an author who promises a good story and then delivers it.”

    - Publishers Weekly
  • “Baldacci is a master at building suspense, and the conclusion of [The Camel Club] will leave readers breathless.”

    - Booklist
  • “New York stage actor Davis helps to brighten up a bleak subject with almost perfect pitch…Baldacci works hard to balance all his many characters and their connecting stories, and Davis holds up his end with clever, sharp-edged subtlety that helps listeners stay in the picture.”

    - Publishers Weekly (audio review)
  • “This is a story that requires the expert narration of someone like Jonathan Davis, who does an admirable job keeping the characters straight and, thereby, helping the listener stay on track. The plot lines and the many characters make the story a challenge for an audiobook, but these are also the qualities that make this book engaging and keep Baldacci popular.”
