In Divine Justice former government hitman, Oliver Stone, is on the run after assassinating a high profile senator and the CIA director after they betrayed him and cost the life of a friend of his. He winds up in the mining town of Divine, Virginia after helping and befriending Danny, a resident of Divine. When he gets there, he finds a town more prosperous than it should be, but one that is also experiencing an unusual level of murders. While this is going on, Macklin Hayes, a high level spy who has a vendetta against Oliver, sends Joe Knox to hunt him down, while his friends in the Camel Club try to help him get out of this situation. All of these people converge on Divine in the middle of a drug running ring and a corrupt maximum security prison.

If you just consider the core storyline and the main characters of this novel, it was a quality read. The action was compelling. The chase between Joe Knox and Oliver Stone held intrigue. The pace of the story was strong. That’s not to say there weren’t issues with the novel. The first has to do with Macklin Hayes, whose character is a total cliché. He is the stereotypical evil, all powerful government operative who uses people like a herd of cattle. I have come across this character so often in novels, movies, and television, that he shouldn’t have even been given a name. They should have just called him Standard Issue, Super Evil Government Agent antagonist. Also, the aspects involving the prison were so unrealistic that it made it hard to suspend disbelief. That’s not to say that the good elements of this novel weren’t enjoyable. And since there was more good than bad I would recommend and would give it three and a half stars if I could.

I think I would have got more out of this book had I read others in the Camel Club series. Very plot-driven where I prefer more character-driven stories. That said, it was a highly entertaining read, ( )

Great pace in the story... As gripping as the earlier Camel Club books ( )

About usual for a David Baldacci book. The Camel Club is not my favorite of the series that he writes. ( )
  JenniferRobb | Jan 17, 2016 |
The fourth novel in the Camel Club series keeps up the fast paced story telling, however I found the plot a bit too unbelievable in this one. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0446195502, Hardcover)

Following the instant # 1 New York Times bestseller Stone Cold, Oliver Stone and the Camel Club return in David Baldacci's most surprising thriller yet . . .


Known by his alias, "Oliver Stone," John Carr is the most wanted man in America. With two pulls of the trigger, the men who destroyed Stone's life and kept him in the shadows were finally silenced.

But his freedom comes at a steep price: The assassinations he carried out prompt the highest levels of the U.S. government to unleash a massive manhunt. Behind the scenes, master spy Macklin Hayes is playing a very personal game of cat and mouse. He, more than anyone, wants Stone dead.

With their friend and unofficial leader in hiding, the members of the Camel Club risk everything to save him. Now, as the hunters close in, Stone's flight from the demons of his past will take him from the power corridors of Washington, D.C., to the small, isolated coal-mining town of Divine, Virginia-and into a world every bit as lethal as the one he left behind.
