Publisher's Summary

The Camel Club by best-selling sensation David Baldacci is the exciting first instalment of a breathtaking series.

The man known as Oliver Stone has no official past. He spends most days camped opposite the White House, hoping to expose corruption wherever he finds it. But the stakes are raised when he and his friends, a group of conspiracy theorist misfits known as The Camel Club, accidentally witness the murder of an intelligence analyst. Especially when the authorities are seemingly happy to write it off as a suicide.

For Secret Service agent Alex Ford, monitoring the 'investigation', the suicide verdict doesn't ring true. As punishment for sticking his nose where it doesn't belong, he is reassigned to bodyguard duties. His abilities are tested to the limit when he is sent to protect the President during a visit to his hometown, where a terrorist cell has spent months plotting an event that will shake the world.

Meanwhile, America's powerful intelligence chief Carter Gray is unnerved when he glimpses the face of an old acquaintance in Arlington Cemetery - but it is the face of a man supposedly long dead....

And as The Camel Club is poised to expose a conspiracy that reaches into the heart of Washington's highly secretive corridors of power, Alex Ford finds out that his worst nightmare is about to happen....

The Camel Club is followed by The Collectors, Stone Cold, Divine Justice and Hell's Corner.

Superb story; small hiccups.

I believe I've heard the majority of David Baldacci's novels by now. At least the ones available through Audible.
I've found them all very entertaining and most of them engrossing. I have only one small niggle and that is one to do with the 'performance' of the majority of the Readers.
Without exception the American pronunciation of certain English words have me shouting at the speakers..
Shone, notched and the like are typical. It's not a big complaint or even an important one to the majority of listeners but my History in English Grammar, Literature and Pronunciation makes me, perhaps, a little picky.
Despite this little niggle I can thoroughly recommend all of David's books. The Series in particular never fail entertain.

convoluted plot

Too many undeveloped characters,,unbelievable. I gave up after a few chapters. Did Baldacci write this?

slow start. eplosive finish<br />

The camel club was a new read for me, i nearly gave up in the first few hours as the progress was very slow. once the story got going it was back to Baldacci normal pace and I really enjoyed the 2nd half. i will give another Camel club book a go. if you read this make sure you see it through to the end. it is worth it.

VERY CONVILOUTED

Not my type of thriller. I I really enjoy Baldaccis other books where there is a central Character ; 1 Puller series ,2 Decker & 3 Robie with these you get a good back story and develop empathy with each and the plots twist and turn and books are real page burners.. This conspiracy theory nonsence was tedious and the Camel club just did not. inspire me to. delve further into their characters. e I stoped reading at 20% thankfullyAudible do credit refunds.
ill try his new female detective and take it from there !!

Not vintage Baldacci

If you're thinking of reading Baldacci's back catalogue then give this a miss. It moves too slowly and many characters come across as undeveloped ans surplus to the plot.

A good read

I enjoyed the book. it was easy to follow but the plot had enough in it to hold my interest. Characters had depth and interest. My only quibble would be with the authors laboured "preachings". I can't go into too much detail without veering into spoiler land. I would recommend this and look forward 2 more escapades of the Camel Club members in future stories
