With an utterly relentless pace, David Baldacci maps out a course with more twists and turns than a good autocross circuit. This is one scary book.

Synopsis

The Camel Club. Four members, four stories, one philosophy. Men with no past and no future, they spend their time studying wild conspiracy theories that reach to the highest levels of government. One fateful night ,The Camel Club witnesses a shocking murder and realizes that even their wildest theories are not as horrifying as the truth...

Soon, they have an ally in the person of Alex Ford, a career Secret Service agent who,while investigating the murder, realizes that a far larger crime is being put into place. Ford and the members of The Camel Club must subvert a misguided mission that threatens to usher in a terrifying new era, sculpted by one man's horribly distorted vision of justice...

THE CAMEL CLUB is vintage Baldacci: intelligent, terrifying, thrilling fiction that could be tomorrow's fact.

Kirkus

Above average

A lukewarm would-be potboiler of uninvolving intrigue about a kooky quartet of conspiracy theorists—one by the name of “Oliver Stone”—who witness the murder of a federal agent.

A full range of well developed characters provide ample fodder for strong subplots as they go about pursuing their private agendas that culminates in a heart stopping climax that could one day be all too real.

Reviewing the Evidence

Good

The story itself is an elaborate scenario of several scenes that have one thing in common -- the bad thing that is going to happen -- and readers get to explore it piecemeal as each piece of the puzzle falls into place.
