A good thriller.

There are two story lines:
Oliver Stone's investigation of a librarians death leads to evidence of a spy ring.
Annabelle plots a con.

The two stories join together. And part is left to continue in the next book.

Listening to it with different voices and readers for each character made it odd when the narrator would say things like - he said, after a line of dialogue ( )

There are two thrilling and intricate plot lines in the book. I would have given a 5-star, but was let down when one plot line did not conclude. Fortunately the next book is available and I can find out what happens. I hate it when I have to wait for the author to write the next book to tell the rest of the story. I'll not give up on Baldacci for not concluding the one plot line, because he once again did such a great job of telling the story and he did conclude the main story. I'm anticipating that he will make up for this let-down in the next book. ( )

Second of the camel club series. Loved the plot :)
Nice read ( )

The second book in the Camel Club series really picks up the pace.

An intriguing mix of gambling cons, confidence tricks and a mysterious death in the library of congress. ( )

I liked this one nearly as much as the first in the series. Both of these I listened to in audio version, and have to say I liked the narrator on the first one much more than the second. It may actually be the same narrator - it's just that on the second book they added a female narrator, and I really found it confusing when the voices skipped around.
