While a gifted con artist plots against the most ruthless businessman in the world, the Camel Club must stop a renegade CIA agent from selling American secrets to the highest bidder in this #1 New York Times bestselling thriller.

The assassination of the speaker of the House has rocked the nation. And the Camel Club has found a chilling connection with another death: that of the director of the Library of Congress's Rare Books and Special Collections Division.

The club's unofficial leader, a man who calls himself Oliver Stone, discovers that someone is selling America to its enemies one secret at a time. Then Annabelle Conroy, the greatest con artist of her generation, comes to town and joins forces with the Camel Club for her own reasons. And Stone will need all the help she can give, because the two murders are hurtling the Camel Club into a world of espionage that is bringing America to its knees.

    I loved the storyline and how it will bleed in to the next book.

    A good read that developed the threads at just the right pace. Complex enough to keep me figuring and people that were very believable. Still, my favorite mystery is The Winner! Thanks Sally

    It took too long to get exciting but once it did,I didn't want to put it down. I'm glad I didn't give up on it.

    Baldacci again delivers a twist and turn adventure. The ending is rather abrupt but ok, I always want the story to continue
  • iBook formatting problem

    By bcampbell
    But a good story. I enjoy the character of Oliver Stone (John Carr) and his Camel Club buddies. But it's annoying that the first 1-2 words of each chapter do not display in the iBook App, in Portrait Mode, on my iPhone 5s. I have to rotate the device to Landscape, page forward once, read the words, rotate back to my preferred Portrait orientation, and page backwards to finish reading each Chapters first sentence. I have not seen this issue with other iBooks by this author. So annoying...

    Not one of his best! Compared to his other great books this was boring.
  • Inconsistent

    By bigfanofsuperdawg
    Something was weird about this book--a character was identified as being killed one way at some points in the book and a different way at other times. I searched multiple times and could find no explanation for this. Overall the book was good, but this was a big negative.
  • Impossible to put away

    Baldacci's turn pager style is unequaled. I don't read his books for literary value; I read him for his intense, hard to put away engrossing story telling. He draws the reader into the story and makes him feel the intensity and pace of the action. I can't wait to read the sequel!
