This novel is dedicated to the men and women of the United States Secret Service. The old grave markers loomed before him, the moonlight glancing off the weathered, mossy stone. As he stepped from the front porch to the grass, the brisk air helped carry away the burning sensation in his head from his nightmare, but not the one in his heart. Thankfully, he had somewhere to go tonight, yet with some time to spare.

I am an avid Baldacci fan and have read all the Camel Club books, except 'Bullseye'. This one is not a "page turner". At times I thought "did Baldacci really write this?"

Stone Cold is a crime thriller written by David Baldacci. This is the third book to feature the Camel Club, a small group of Washington, . civilian misfits led by "Oliver Stone", a former CIA trained assassin.

Stone Cold is a crime thriller written by David Baldacci. The book was initially published on November 6, 2007 by Grand Central Publishing.

At just under 600 pages the story picks up from The Collectors.

I thoroughly enjoyed this meaty David Baldacci camel club book. At just under 600 pages the story picks up from The Collectors. Jerry Bagger is in hot pursuit of Annabelle Conroy and Carter Gray is trying to reestablish himself in the White House. I loved how the stories intersected, how the relationships from book one with the FBI agent Alex then spilled into book three.

The Camel Club, comprised of four unlikely partners, seeks to uncover the truth in their hometown of Washington .

I have read several books by David Baldacci, including the two earlier novels in his Camel Club series. In short, Stone Cold, the third Camel Club book was entertaining, but left a bit to be desired. The best part was the new character, Harry Finn, who works for a private company that has a government contract to test the security measures of government agencies and contractors.

Oliver Stone and the Camel Club are back in their most dangerous adventure yet - a war on two fronts. Casino king Jerry Bagger from The Collectors is hunting Annabelle Conroy, the beautiful woman who conned him out of millions. Stone and his colleagues Reuben, Milton, and Caleb marshal all their resources to protect Annabelle.

The #1 bestselling author of The Collectors and Simple Genius returns with STONE COLD...an unforgetable novel of revenge, conspiracy, and murder that brings a band of unlikely heroes face-to-face with their greatest threat.Oliver Stone, the leader of the mysterious group that calls itself the Camel Club, is both feared and respected by those who've crossed his path. Keeping a vigilant watch over our leaders in Washington, D.C., the Camel Club has won over some allies, but it has also earned formidable enemies-including those in power who will do anything to prevent Stone and his friends from uncovering the hidden, secret work of the government.Annabelle Conroy, an honorary member of the Camel Club, is also the greatest con artist of her generation. She has swindled forty million dollars from casino king Jerry Bagger, the man who murdered her mother. Now he's hot on her trail with only one goal in mind: Annabelle's death. But as Stone and the Camel Club circle the wagons to protect Annabelle, a new opponent, who makes Bagger's menace pale by comparison, suddenly arises.One by one, men from Stone's shadowy past are turning up dead. Behind this slaughter stands one man: Harry Finn. To almost all who know him, Finn is a doting father and loving husband who uses his skills behind the scenes to keep our nation safe. But the other face of Harry Finn is that of an unstoppable killer who inevitably sets his lethal bull's-eye on Oliver Stone. And with Finn, Stone may well have met his match.As Annabelle and the Camel Club fight for their lives, the twists and turns whipsaw, leading to a finale that is as explosive as it is shattering. And when buried secrets are at last violently resurrected, the members of the Camel Club left standing will be changed forever. With unrelenting pacing, stunning reversals, and two of the most compelling characters in modern fiction, STONE COLD is David Baldacci writing at his breathtaking best.

    Annabella took a back seat in this novel. That's sad because she is the gutsy cool character. Caleb and Reuben also were minor characters. This novel takes lots of twists, perhaps too many. Anyway I finished it. Please David, if you are reading this go back to the characters that made the "club" so enjoyable. Do a prequel with Milton and the originals, but sadly that would leave Annabella out? Can't do that!!

    I'll still keep my Baldacci library growing like Caleb's famous library.

  • This series is the first I have read of David Baldacci's writing, and the characters, plot, pacing, etc. are very good. This book does keep your interest right to the end, and there are a few unexpected occurrences. What is not unexpected, and begins to be a little monotonous, is the graphic violence surrounding our deadly-assassin-with-a-heart-of-gold main character. Likewise the recurring theme of evil people rising to the top, having basically run amuck with the power they have been given. While there is a measure of revenge that may satisfy some sense of justice, it does little to relieve the depression brought on by the situation as a whole. That the characters in the book are drawn to each other and are unfailingly loyal to each other in spite of the knowledge that they easily engage in behavior that is reviled by most civilized people (the end always justifies the means, each person is their own judge of right and wrong, life and death) is vaguely heartwarming but mostly disturbing. So the quick summary is that the writing is technically good, the story gripping - but you don't want to think too deeply about the world view embraced by these characters that we are supposed to like.

  • This is a good, page-turner read. I enjoyed this book even though I have not read the other Camel Club books in the series. I read this book for a Book Club discussion, and I was worried I would not understand the characters since I did not have the Camel Club background. But, that was not the case. Baldacci does a good job of getting the characters' traits and dimensions across even for the first-time reader. Plot, setting, and action are all well developed. The reason I chose 4 stars instead of 5 is that the novel seems to have one too many "twists" toward the end. Most of the reverses and surprises were thoroughly fun and heightened the reading experience. Overall, this book offers reading time well spent.

  • I've been a Baldacci fan since time began and just recently discovered this fourth novel in the Camel Club series, which I have thoroughly enjoyed. This novel returns protagonist Oliver Stone (John Carr) to government service to halt a nefarious plot to spread drugs through the US and kill a bunch of people initiated by the Russians.... or was it the Mexicans ..... or the Russians ....
    Determining who the bad guys are working for and exactly why they want to blow things up and kill the president is Stone's job, He solves it of course, despite government interference, and catches the bad guys with help from the Camel Club, but it's a wild ride. Oh, and the Camel Club gets a new member. Go for it!

  • This is the third and arguably the best of the David Baldacci's highly imaginative and successful Camel Club series. To understand the series you should know a bit about the bizarre collection of members of the Camel Club:

    * Oliver Stone - an alias for a retired clandestine CIA operative who maintains a church cemetery in Washington and lives in the caretaker's cottage in the cemetery grounds.
    * Rheuben Rhodes - a former DIA worker and marksman who now works unloading trucks.
    * Caleb Shaw - a twin PhD who works in the rare book Wing of the Library of Congress and has a penchant for wearing 19th Century fashion.
    * Milton Farb - an obsessive-compulsive prodigy with an eidetic memory who can remember cards and numbers and can win extremely large amounts of money at Casinos.
    * Alex Ford - (occasional member) a Secret Service agent who is a member of the President's security squad.
    * Annabelle Conroy - (new member) a compulsive thief who runs scams on people and Casinos to steal large amounts of money.

    In this adventure Annabelle has conned vicious Casino king Jerry Bagger out of millions. Stone and his colleagues Reuben, Milton, and Caleb marshal all their resources to protect Annabelle.

    At the same time someone is slowly killing members of Stone's old clandestine squad one by one and is zeroing on Stone, who has to revert to his old trade to save his life and some of his old colleagues.

    As usual Baldacci weaves a devious tale of how this mostly amateur group deal with a range of dangerous happenings, revenge, conspiracy and murder which are the core of all of the great Camel Club series.
