Sue Recommends Hell's Corner by David Baldacci

Hell's Corner is #5 in the Camel Club Series featuring Oliver Stone by David Baldacci. This is by far the best of this political thriller series, and if the earlier books caused you to question what is really going on in politics and the Intelligence Departments of the government, this one will cause you to lose most of your trust.

Oliver Stone, a former government assassin, is asked by the President to play a role finding information in events with the Mexican drug cartels. Before he can begin, a bomb in Lafayette Park, directly across from the White House, with the British Prime Minister possibly the target, sends him and an MI6 female agent into looking into who is responsible and why it occurred. There are so many false trails set in their paths, people being killed, and possible involvement by the Mexican cartels and Russian government that you wonder if Stone can discover the truth. What is real, how are the events that occur related, and who can he trust when he believes that he is being set up?

It is absolutely addictive and the plot so well constructed that you will not be able to put it down or get out of your car if you are listening to the audio book (read by Ron McLarty and Orlagh Cassidy). The story works as a standalone but you will garner so much more about the characters if you read the earlier books in the series.

Another must read! SH
