So many characters and not really a fan of the Camel Club actually....bringing non-govt people into a classified investigation? Whatever! I do like Oliver Stone's character though!

After reading a quarter of the book, and waiting for the fast-paced suspense to develop, I tired of the repetitious reminiscing and lack of plot that I gave up on this David Baldacci novel. The character is worn out. This book gets half a star which is disappointing as some of his other novels are quite good.

Disappointing.

I have read and enjoyed several David Baldacci books. This book was terrible. I kept hoping it would improve and it never did, right to the end.
It's attempt to be a mystery was ridiculous. In my opinion, a good mystery ought be believable. The events lacked a common thread and the conclusions reached by the hero made no sense or logic. I could not recommend it.

Hell’s Corner --- by David Baldacci. I don’t usually tear through a book as fast as I did this one. Baldacci knows how to play with the reader. There are lots of false clues and starts and the plot has as many twists and turns as a tailpipe on an old jalopy. If you want suspense and a fast-paced novel, this is it.

Lots of action but I didn't enjoy it as much as his other books.

Yet in his mind’s eye it was decades ago and Stone pulled the trigger on his custom sniper rifle, ending the life of another enemy of the United States as he walked across the street with his mistress toward the luxury hotel where they were going to have sex. His downfall had been ordering the execution of two CIA personnel in Poland. Stone had put a shot through the right eyeball at the stroke of eleven p.m. from a distance of nine hundred yards on elevated ground with a breeze from the north that had given him a few anxious moments. The mistress hadn’t even known what happened until her dead lover hit the pavement. The NYPD and local FBI, tipped off to what was going down, had never attempted to solve the case. That’s just how it was done back then. Hell, thought Stone, maybe that was how it was still done.

“Yeah, but a bomb in a xxx zzz (redacted - spoiler)?” said Gross. “Who’d figure that one?” “Yeah, like jumbo jets flying into skyscrapers,” said Stone. “Or explosives in underwear or shoes. We have to start being ahead of that curve or more innocent people will die.”
