First Line: The Chesapeake Bay is America’s largest estuary.

Blurb: Known by his alias, “Oliver Stone,” John Carr is the most wanted man in America. With two pulls of the trigger, the men who destroyed Stone’s life and kept him in the shadows were finally silenced. But his freedom comes at a steep price: The assassinations he carried out prompt the highest levels of the U.S. government to unleash a massive manhunt. Yet behind the scenes, master spy Macklin Hayes is playing a very personal game of cat and mouse. He, more than anyone else, wants John Carr dead. With their friend and unofficial leader in hiding, the members of the Camel Club risk everything to save him. Now as the hunters close in, Stone’s flight from the demons of his past will take him from the power corridors of Washington, D.C., to the coal-mining town of Divine, Virginia – and into a world every bit as bloody and lethal as the one he left behind.

Review: SPOILERS POSSIBLE. This is the fourth book in the Camel Club series. I must say: the trouble that Oliver Stone manages to find himself in book after book is just amazing! He might have been on the run in this installment, but no one with luck like Oliver could have ever ended up in a town like Divine, Virginia! I must admit when the entire Divine storyline began, I was confused. I didn’t understand where in the world Mr. Baldacci was going. But in the end, I really enjoyed the storyline. It made the book so much more believable. I loved the introduction of a couple of new characters who could possibly make an appearance in the next book (and possibly more books?). I will be very interested in knowing what happens between Oliver and Abby. I have devoured this series these past couple of months. The latest book, Hell’s Corner, is available at my library (with a small waitlist), but I have vowed to read only from my TBR pile until April, so it will be a while before I can get to the next one in this series, but I’m axiously awaiting that! Definitely looking forward to more of the Camel Club!

  1. Tara, you have to clear something up for me. I just got done listening to the last track of the last disc of the audiobook for “Divine Justice,” and I am confused! I wonder if I am missing a cd, or what. Maybe you can clear this up for me. Does the book end with Oliver and Knox in the prison still, looking out the window? I don’t get it, nothing was resolved! Am I missing a cd? Is there more?


    1. It’s been a while since I read this book, but I vaguely remember a very strange “cliff-hanging” ending. I don’t think you’re missing a CD (but like I said, it’s been two years since I read this book – my memory could be off). I know that “Hell’s Corner” is the next book after “Divine Justice” and remember that the beginning was a little strange. So while I can’t answer your question for sure, I am relatively confident that it ended without resolution.
