About this deal

The President has asked Carr/Stone to take on a mission of national importance, one that he is uniquely qualified to do as he was once this countries top assassins. 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.

Without giving the story-line away, I found this was the book that finally stretched plausibility beyond its breaking-point: the main plot device is 'James Bond' like (and speaking as a chemist, scientific nonsense); the final action sequence is rather 'deja vu'; and, as this was the last in the series I was expecting some closure on the career of John Carr (one way or another), whereas its actually left entirely open. Then, just as the prime minister’s motorcade leaves, a bomb explodes in the park, and in the chaotic aftermath Stone is given an urgent assignment: find those responsible. 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. Oliver Stone has been summoned by the President of the United States to perform a mission on Russian soil. Everyone has their own agenda and all the federal agencies are not sharing what they know amongst each other.This book is a great read for anyone who likes political thrillers or suspense novels and anyone who likes Baldacci but hasn’t had a chance to turn to the series. Though Baldacci hasn't mentioned the homeless and unemployed men who stand outside the Martin Luther King Library before noon on Mondays and 9:00 am other days to read, look for jobs on the internet and just get out of the rain. 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.

As I was reading Hell's Corner, right on the heals of the Jason Bourne books that I read a few weeks ago, Baldacci's Oliver Stone turned out to be more and more as Robert Ludlum's Jason Bourne. There were instances that were too obvious, leaving me a little bored with the amount of time it took the characters to figure it out.

I loved the first 3 in the Camel Club series, and I love the Oliver Stone / John Carr character, but this one was a big letdown. It keeps with his occupation—would you expect a guy trying to secretly uncover dangerous plots to use his real name?Your payment method will be charged immediately, and the product is expected to ship on or around November 9, 2010.
