The Camel Club
by David Baldacci
The Camel Club is a four-man group of off-beat characters who meet weekly to discuss the latest goings-on that they think could spell government conspiracies. During one of these clandestine meetings in a secluded park area, they witness the murder of a man who turns out to be a Secret Service Agent who works with the terrorist database. This is the first book in the Camel Club series and we receive a little background on the fellows but at this point we don't know them well. Lots of characters with a fascinating plot that intricately comes together. The final 100 pages were so suspenseful and exciting that I couldn't put the book down. This is not so much a standard murder mystery but a spy/terrorist/political machinations suspense story. For those who like some of real life woven into a suspenseful story, start here. (Near the end you'll learn why they named themselves The Camel Club). -- recommended by Charlotte K. - Bennett Martin Public Library
