Nice mystery to listen to while exercising. Rather frightening if the concept of "nanobots" is actually a posibility. ( )

This latest installment in the Camel club series reunites Oliver (aka John Carr) and his Camel Club cronies in a new adventure that begins with a bomb set off during a tree planting in front of the White House. Partnering with Oliver in this adventure is Mary Chapman from British Intelligence. The usual twists, turns and interesting characters keep the story moving along at a nice brisk pace and, without spoiling anything, the end is quite a shocker.

I did enjoy this book, but personally, with Oliver out of the closet so to speak, I feel the Camel Club has lost a little of what made it charming in the earlier books.

The friends continue in this Camel Club series with Oliver Stone (Carr) at the center, as they have each other’s back. However, the president of US needs his help to handle this one on his own. After a bomb explodes across from the White House and Stone has an in to erase his past indiscretions, so he is partnered with an agent and the Camel Club determined to assist. I enjoyed the Camel Club series, but this one was not as exciting as some of the others. ( )

Overwritten, contrived escapes from improbable situations. If you like enough twists to break a snake's back Balducci is your author. ( )

David Baladacci writes another story that could insert itself directly into today's headlines. Thankfully he writes fiction but fiction at a page-turning, gripping pace in the midst of international espionage sharing details of weaponry, security and agencies but always keeping the focus on the personalities of each character within the Camel Club and the friendships that help us survive each day in the midst of questioning all that we perceive to be real. I would imagine that David Baladacci has some extraordinary friends.

I read the first book and not intentionally moved to Book Five. I will not miss the others in the series but sometimes it is a delight in itself not to have to read books in a series in order.

Book description
On the night of the State Dinner honouring the British Prime Minister, there is an explosion as the Prime Minister's motorcade leaves the White House. Oliver Stone witnesses the event. A bomb has been detonated in what looks like a terrorist plot directed at the President and the Prime Minister. In the aftermath, British MI-5 agent Mary Chapman, an experienced, lethal operative with an agenda of her own, is sent to assist and coordinate the investigation alongside American authorities. Stone, together with Harry Finn, Alex Ford, and the rest of the Camel Club, are drawn into the investigation. But everything is not what it appears to be, and what happened in the park may not have been the actual plan. It seems the mysterious attackers had another target in their sights, and it's up to the Camel Club to stop them, or face the catastrophic results.
