Out of all of Baldacci's series, the Camel Club novels are by far my favourite: The motley band of sleuths and conspiracy theory junkies who have grown over the course of five novels into quite the diverse and capable band of crime solvers, complete with endearing quirks and a hard-nosed and noble former government assassin (who goes by the name `Oliver Stone') as their nominative leader. With "Hell's Corner", Baldacci has written yet another fast-paced and enjoyable thriller, but also one that has a bit of a shaky start, not quite living up to its predecessor, "Divine Justice".

Hell's Corner is Lafayette Park on Pennsylvania Avenue, where the various US governmental jurisdictions overlap (FBI, Park Service, Secret Service, and so on), creating a nightmare of overlapping jurisdictions. After a bomb goes off on Hell's Corner, an investigation into who the perpetrator is gets snarled among the crossed wires and red tape. After being called in over a different assignment altogether, Stone is re-tasked to join this investigation, from the White House's perspective. It's a position that carries plenty of clout, but also quite a few risks and resentments, and Stone's unorthodox methods and well-documented disrespect for authority mean he will inevitably annoy at least a few of the by-the-book and uptight Federal employees he comes into contact with.

The characters that make up both the Camel Club and the wider cast of the novel are well rounded, and the Camel Club members return in their familiar ways - the bickering, the loyalty, the good-natured ribbing (between Reuben and Caleb, particularly). Stone's nobility is laid on with a bit of a heavy hand this time around, which was noticeably absent in previous novels in the series.

This book is a little better than his last, which was diabolical, but PLEASE Mr Baldacci, stay away from the English in future. Such basic, simple errors (MI6 is controlled by the Foreign Office, not the Home Office; British law officers don't have "badges" to flash ....), and as for the use of the English language - did he do his research via a series of 1940s and 50s novels? It isn't, strictly speaking, "wrong", but Oh dear! it grates.

The action is, as always, fast and furious, and the body count is astronomical, but in many ways I'm afraid Baldacci really has "lost the plot" these days.

Format: Paperback
Hell's Corner is the latest outing for Oliver Stone and the Camel Club. As one would expect from David Baldacci, this is quite a fast moving story with lots of twists and turns on the way. I did have a certain amount of conceptual difficulty with the plot this time round. It seemed incredible that the President of the USA would ignore his many acronymic domestic agencies and call on the services of our hero who was not even a Government employee. This is particularly so since, as far as undercover agents go, Stone must be the equivalent of a geriatric. As I read on, I could really not suspend disbelief sufficiently to get, what appeared to me, this basic plot hole out of my mind. Additionally some of the story struck me as being rather far fetched and perhaps over elaborate. The British agent punctuating her narrative with 'bloody' on a regular basis was a particular irritant - clearly that is how the author thinks we Brits speak.

The story starts at Hell's Corner, also known as Lafayette Park which is close to the White House, where a bomb explodes following the area being raked with gunfire and whilst Stone is conveniently on the spot. It has been dubbed Hell's Corner as the area is a tangle of overlapping jurisdictional competition between the many policing agencies. Stone, together with a British agent, Mary Chapman, and later the rest of the Camel Club, investigate these incidents which may or may not be related and where the nature and origin of the perpetrators or indeed, their next move, is far from clear. Complications include the ruthless ability of the culprits to tie up loose ends and the continuing competition between the various Governmental agencies involved who are all very protective of any information they have acquired.

I would have to agree with many of the negative comments already on Amazon. However, I notice a worrying trend. I was also extremely disappointed by the First Family. Typing mistakes, weak and at times unbelievable twists in the story.
I wanted to drop Hells Corner after 50 pages but persevered to my cost. Too long, too repetitive. Poor character definition - hard to believe the villain fell for our hero after about 10 minutes together ! The author needs to take a break. Get back to basics.
I must say I smile when I read the positive reviews of this and one or two other of his recent books. They must have been written by friends and family. Alternatively, they havent read any of Baldacci's earlier work.
I wont be reading anymore of Baldacci until he returns to form.

As a Baldacci fan I could not wait for the release of this book., but sadly Hell's Corner I was disappointed by the final product! It felt disjointed by too many predictable twists and turns making it difficult to believe the plot. I mean suspension of disbelief is required in this genre but this went beyond the pale. The reader is required to believe that the president has only Oliver Stone, who has been retired for years, to come back and stop the Russians. I love a good conspiracy story but this just did not work for me. If your looking for a good conspiracy thriller try "A Tourist in the Yucatan!"
