It has been a while since I listened to a “thriller,” and I have never listened nor read anything by Baldacci, though I know many people who like him.
I enjoyed listening to this book, narrated by Ron McLarty. I will undoubtedly listen and read other books in this series and a few not.

I have given it 4 stars because it IS a good book, but not on a par with regular fiction. Not like fiction of Amor Towles, or Fredrick Backman, not non-fiction like Ron Chernow, or Walter Issacson. ( )

The #1 bestselling author of The Collectors and Simple Genius returns with STONE COLD...an unforgetable 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 that calls itself the Camel Club, is both feared and respected by those who've crossed his path. Keeping a vigilant watch over our leaders in Washington D.C., 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: Annabelle's death. 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 behind the scenes to keep our nation safe. But the other face of Harry Finn is that of an unstoppable killer who inevitably sets his lethal bull's-eye on Oliver Stone. And 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. And 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 writing at his breathtaking best.

Synopsis: While Annabelle is busy dodging Bagger, Harry Finn appears to track down and kill the Triple Sixes who killed his father; Oliver Stone is one of these men. In the process, Finn's son is kidnapped and the rescue goes badly. Milton is killed. Oliver finds that he mush desert his friends to protect them.
Review: These are getting better and better. I'm ready to know what happens next and to hope that they all make it out alive and together. ( )

I love the Camel Club members and will continue to read this enjoyable series, but this one had way too many eye-rolling moments near the end and required me to suspend disbelief over plot points that could have easily been handled in a less eye-rolling way. Still, a fun series and I'm hooked. ( )

Cam new name Oliver Stone — lives in cemetery — helps old group
kills all off + disappears — good — typical Baldacci!

First words
Harry Finn rose as usual at six-thirty, made coffee, let the dog out into the fenced backyard for its morning constitutional, showered, shaved, woke the kids for school and oversaw that complicated operation for the next half hour as breakfasts were gulped, backpacks and shoes grabbed and arguments started and settled.
