Library Journal: Hell hath no fury like a retired CIA assassin in pursuit of a terrorist. Baldacci's fifth book in the "Camel Club" series (after Divine Justice) opens with Oliver Stone as a wounded victim of a bombing. The terrorist attack takes place in Lafayette Park in front of what should be the most secure of all American buildings, the White House. The British prime minister was supposed to have visited the park that night, so a debate sparks about who the intended target was. Stone, already pulled back into service by the President, is assigned to work with a British agent, Mary Chapman, to find the terrorist. But as that pair and the rest of the Camel Club delve deeper into the mystery, they find this attack may be only the beginning of a much more insidious and deadly plot. The mastermind behind the attack always seems one step ahead, and it'll take all of Stone's cunning to ferret out the truth from the lies. VERDICT Camel Club fans and thriller aficionados will rejoice at having a new action-packed, conspiracy-laden, politically intriguing mystery to solve. [See Prepub Alert, LJ 7/10.]—Susan O.
