A real slog to finish this book - very disappointing,
This review is from: Hell's Corner (Camel Club) (Hardcover)Over the last few books, I've started to feel as if Baldacci is losing the plot (pun intended). This book confirmed that belief. Considering the fact that so many people die, it is exceptionally dull and devoid of any real action. Chapter after short chapter is just talk or characters moving from one location to another in hopeless pursuit of some seemingly all-knowing enemy. By a third of the way through the book it was already becoming a chore to carry on and after half way it became a battle - always in the hope that the Baldacci of old would suddenly up the tempo and introduce some real activity. Also, the Camel Club isn't really all that involved anyway, it's mostly Stone and an MI6 agent, Chapman, against the rest.
No, sorry, this is a poor effort that was written, I suspect, to re-ignite flagging interest in Baldacci's increasingly disappointing writings. It would have been far better to have left the Camel Club in retirement and spent some time developing a much stronger storyline.
My advice? - Don't be seduced by the thought of another classic Camel story because this most definitely isn't it.
