Four eccentric members of a Washington, D.C., club examine conspiracy theories until they witness a shocking murder and become embroiled in an astounding conspiracy themselves.

This book had so much going on and so many characters. I started getting confused about who was on which side. It seemed like everyone was bad. I liked the times when the Camel Club met up and conversed. I'll continue the series to see what they get up to next. ( )

A group of older men with ties to various government and/or military agencies unite to solve a conspiracy that no one believes in until it's almost too late. This is what I call "beach reads for men" or "dude lit" (like, as opposed to "chick lit" get it?) This stuff is no more realistic than your average romance novel, but somehow gets treated with much, much more gravitas? Oh, well. The characters, especially the Camel Club themselves, were entertaining and the plot was suspenseful. A quick read even considering the relatively large amount of pages.

This was an extremely well-written and well thought out book. Baldacci was very thorough in describing events and situations so you could easily visualize what was happening while you were reading. The only reason I rated this book so low (originally 2 stars) is simply because of my lack of interest. I just don't enjoy reading political thrillers. What bumped this up to a 3 star rating, however, was the wonderful cast of characters. The Camel Club members were a wonderful ragtag group with loads of personal problems. Baldacci described these characters down to the shifty pants" and OCD tics. These guys cracked me up and I did enjoy seeing them win the day." ( )
