Présentation de l'éditeur

Oliver Stone and the Camel Club return in #1 bestselling author David Baldacci's most stunning adventure yet.

An attack on the heart of power . . .
In sight of the White House . . .
At a place known as . . .

HELL'S CORNER

John Carr, aka Oliver Stone-once the most skilled assassin his country ever had-stands in Lafayette Park in front of the White House, perhaps for the last time. The president has personally requested that Stone serve his country again on a high-risk, covert mission. Though he's fought for decades to leave his past career behind, Stone has no choice but to say yes.

Then Stone's mission changes drastically before it even begins. It's the night of a state dinner honoring the British prime minister. As he watches the prime minister's motorcade leave the White House that evening, a bomb is detonated in Lafayette Park, an apparent terrorist attack against both leaders. It's in the chaotic aftermath that Stone takes on a new, more urgent assignment: find those responsible for the bombing.

British MI-6 agent Mary Chapman becomes Stone's partner in the search for the unknown attackers. But their opponents are elusive, capable, and increasingly lethal; worst of all, it seems that the park bombing may just have been the opening salvo in their plan. With nowhere else to turn, Stone enlists the help of the only people he knows he can trust: the Camel Club. Yet that may be a big mistake.

In the shadowy worlds of politics and intelligence, there is no one you can really trust. Nothing is really what it seems to be. And Hell's Corner truly lives up to its name. This may be Oliver Stone's and the Camel Club's last stand. --Ce texte fait référence à l'édition CD .

Another Camel Club adventure and just as riveting as the others in that series. As usual, I couldn't put it down. Interesting characters.

Oliver Stone has led so many lives he lost count. For all the losses he has suffered there has been the gain in his friends and cohorts known as the Camel Club. A group of people that are as different they come together and make one large, right group. They solve crimes, take care of each other and never fail to have one another's back. But this latest case is one Stone has to handle on his own and no one including him is happy about it even though the President of the United States is asking for his help.

But before Stone can do his work for the President a bomb goes off across the street from the White House creating the scenario where conclusions are drawn, angles are worked and assumptions made. While everyone is running to the right the masterminds are veering to the left and keeping everyone off balance including all the alphabet agencies in Washington, DC. Stone is drafted back into the service of the government with the promise that all past indiscretions would be erased yet the problem for Stone is that his sins have been of such huge proportion he is not sure this is a statement based in fact. But Stone finds himself partnered with an MI6 agent who is as cunning as he is and keeps up even while running after him. The Camel Club goes from upset at being turned away to forcing its way into the investigation and from that moment on the determination to capture the criminal and figure out what is really going on grows to a proportion even Stone can't control.

But the agency he is now working for is throwing him off with smoke and mirrors, bodies are piling up, misconceptions abound and everyone becomes a suspect. Stone wants the nightmare to stop but for every decision he makes that draws a resolution to the case another one shows up to prove to him the last one was way off base and leads blow away with the wind.

Without his group Stone knows he can't solve this case but in this particular situation is the gain of apprehension worth the answer to who did the deed?

This series blows me away every time because the characters have so much depth and they are written with such clarity that you feel they just passed you on the street and said Good Morning. Stone may lead this merry band of misfits but he is not their leader he is a member of a close knit, well thought out group of people that can easily carry any book on their own and have proven that in the past. Mr. Baldacci knows how to write a great story and this one stands out in that it will scare you to realize the fiction he is proposing is probably fact and I hope there is a retired Agent Stone out there protecting us.

HASH(0x959f86a8) étoiles sur 5 Wild ride of politics and intrigue 9 novembre 2010
Par F. Harrison - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
I haven't read the other Camel Club books but this stand-alone thriller interested me after reading the highly recommended Gods of Ruin: A Political Thriller. Hell's Corner is the park accross from the white house that is guarded by DC police, Secret Service, and park police and is the hub for tourists and protesters. I wasn't sure why it was called that until all hell broke loose when the protagonist, Oliver Stone (a dig on the director?) was caught in gunfire and an explosion when meeting his band of patriots at the park.

When Stone awakes from getting knocked out, he's got a new mission: find out who was behind the attack at Hell's Corner. He teams up with a Brit and gets help from his Camel Club peeps as he investigates first a Mexican drug cartel, then the Russians. During the investigation, one government bureaucracy after another gets in the way.

If you like "Gods", which has a better premise, you'll like Hell's Corner. It's got political commentary, action, and it's well-written (better than Baldacci's earlier works).

I've just started the book and am about a quarter of the way through it. I just was checking to see if there were any reviews yet and of course it has a horrible rating because of the price, it is very annoying that people do that over the price. I am enjoying the book very much so I will give it 5 stars. I am on my second kindle and yes I am very disappointed with the price but I am not going to punish one of my favorite authors for something he has no control over. I have started to buy hard covers again and I share them with friends. Please stop reviewing the price here, it is really unfair to the people who want to know what others think of it. Ya know people who have actually bought the book and read it.

I have read all the Camel Club books, and I enjoyed all of the others more than this one. The club takes a back seat in this novel, and it is just Stone/Carr against the world as he plods through this overly complicated plot.

Missing is the personality development and the interactions between the various members of the club, which made Baldacci's other novels so entertaining.

If you are a fan of the Camel Club books, you will have to read this one, just so you will know where all of the characters are starting from in the next novel - but, rest assured, this will not turn out as one of your favorites.

I'm a big fan of David Baldacci and was really disappointed in "Hell's Corner." It was choppy, confusing and trite. I wondered several times if he actually wrote the book or had some protege write it like a lot of big-time authors seem to be doing now. I usually love his books because they are exciting and fun with lots of "insider" info, but this one was boring. I didn't feel attached to any of the characters and I predicted most of the dramatic points in the book. There is no character development. I didn't care when so and so turned out to be a bad person working for the other team - I saw it coming. Oliver's usual humility was spoiled by everyone else's wide-eyed respect for his past. As someone who has read most of his other books, I still had trouble placing all the players, too. The whole thing was sketchy. People were angry and I couldn't care less or even understand why. We are beaten over the head with what a supposedly great spy/assassin Oliver Stone - the main character - was in the past, but he doesn't show it in this book. Baldacci takes us back to murder mountain for the grand finale - really? Are there no more interesting locales? We already had a finale on Murder Mountain! I felt like Baldacci just phoned this book in. Aside from the interesting aspects of Hell's Corner itself (jurisdiction and stuff like that) there was very little of his trademark "insiders" perspective that I usually enjoy in his books. My suggestion? Borrow it from the library.
