Ok, this is my first Baldacci, and I know this is part of a series, but stop me if you've heard this one: a former spy/cop/assassin is on the run after getting vengeance on the people who killed his wife/child/parent/partner and finds himself mixed up with a child/woman/town who needs protection from the local drug dealers/gang bangers/corrupt officials. Needless to say, this is definitely a genre piece. However, I can’t really fault it, even with the absurd Appalachian setting. It was an entert...more

As payback for their dirty deeds, Camel Club member "Oliver Stone", murders a US Senator and an Intelligence Chief and has no choice but to flee Washington DC. On the train ride out of town he intervenes in a 3-on-1 fight and saves Danny Riker from getting pummeled. Now kicked off the train and no where near his destination Oliver has no alternative but to join Danny on his return trip to the tiny town of Divine, Virginia.

Oliver only intends to see Danny home, earn a few traveling dollars and hi...more

I thought that Baldacci had ended the Camel Cdlub series and was delighted to see he hadn't.

This is the aftermath of Oliver killing the the two men who'd ruined his life and killed his wife and daughter, as well as Camel Club Milton Farbe, who is mourned and missed.

He's decided to go on the run so his Camel Club friends aren't implicated in any wrong doing. He flees south on a train, hoping to make it to New Orleans, where he hopes to lose himself in the chaos of a rebuilding city.

He never makes...more

This was the 4th book of the series. I didn't like it as much because the Camel Club wasn't in it much. It was about Oliver Stone on the run and what he gets mixed up in a little town.

This apparently one of a series of books about the Camel Club. I don't remember reading any of them, but found it easy to follow the story.
A man using the alias of "Oliver Stone" appears to have murdered two people who were high up in
the U.S. government. He is now on the run trying to save his life. He has so many adventures along the way and ends up in a rural coal town that seems to have a lot of money floating around.
Reading the book, it is a little hard to figure out who a "good guy" a...more

Follow Oliver Stone in another adventure. This time he is being hunted for the two murders he committed. divine justice is another Camel Club novel, this time set in Divine, a small mining town in Virginia. This book continues the brand but it can be read as a standalone novel as there is loads of back story about Oliver.

You start reading divine justice and you wonder, why has Oliver stumbled across this or that? It is because that detail will be used later in this story. There are a small cast...more

The 4th Camel Club book continues the excitement of this fabulous series. Baldacci is a master of story-telling, building another complex yarn in the adventures of former CIA Triple-Six assassin John Carr, aka Oliver Stone. The Club lost one of its members in a gunfight in book 3 and Stone avenges the murders of his family, putting him on the run as book 4 begins. His goal for starting a new life is interrupted when he intervenes in a fight aboard Amtrak, probably saving the life of the victim....more

Known by his alias, "Oliver Stone," John Carr is the most wanted man in America. With two pulls of the trigger, the men who hid the truth of Stone's past and kept him in the shadows were finally silenced. But Stone's freedom has come at a steep price; the assassinations he carried out have prompted the highest levels of the United States Government to unleash a massive manhunt. Joe Knox is leading the charge, but his superiors aren't telling him everything there is to know about his quarry-and t...more

I'll be surprised if some Hollywood producer doesn't make a movie out of this one. there is actually a book that comes before this, don't know that title, but this story can stand on it's own.

John Carr, aka "Oliver Stone", assassinates two important U.S. government officials who orchestrated the murder of his wife and daughter. After years of doing such "work" professionally for the CIA, he wants out once and for all. Now on the run, with the alias "Ben", he gets mixed up with the seedy underwo...more

It's very refreshing to come across a novel that does not portray the Vietnam vet as a trigger-happy, murderous psychopath. In this book by David Baldacci, John Carr, aka Oliver Stone, was an elite member of a secret CIA group that specializes in assassination. He was also a war hero who was denied the Congressional Medal of Honor because he refused to carry out an order from one of his commanding officers. This is also the fourth novel about the Camel Club that he heads and continues from the p...more

Last week I had to travel by train from my home in the Midlands to Llandudno for a job interview. The morning of my departure I downloaded Divine Justice, so I would have something to read on my journey, in case I got bored with the other book I was reading. (Which I did - it really wasn't the kind of day where I wanted to be reading political commentary all day!). I would say it was a good reading day, as I managed to read all of Divine Justice in the 8 hr journey there & back!

If you have n...more

Well, I never knew this was the last book of a Series!!! Much to my surprise I never once felt in the whole read that It was a continuation to some other books.thats the sole reason I have given this book a 5 star. I am not really into Crime genre, having only read Millennium Series twice. On an impulse I picked this book from a colleague and started to read rather un-interestedly on my long journey to office. First few chapters I don't really felt like reading mind that I am not at all into Cri...more

My second audio, and I am still in love with the format. For my second foray into this format, Divine Justice was a free download from Audible when I downloaded the app to my phone. It is not my typical choice of reading, but I like to occasionally read a good political thriller. I have never read anything by David Baldacci, but given how popular he is, I figured it was a safe choice. I was not wrong.

As with any audio, the choice of narrator is important. Mr. McLarty was perfect. He sounded a bi...more

John Carr, "Oliver Stone", has assassinated the two men who were responsible for the death of his daughter and for destroying his life and keeping him in the shadows. Now he is on the run. He wants to be sure that his friends can honestly claim they knew nothing about the murders or his whereabouts. CIA investigator Joe Knox is assigned to track him down. As he gets further into the investigation, he starts to question the motives of his boss. In the meantime, Knox has questioned Stone's friends...more

David Baldacci creativity is beyond reproach!

He is devious with smoke and mirrors and twists and turns!

In Devine Justice there was never a boring moment and author Baldacci’s writing kept me turning pages. Those who following the Oliver Stone series won’t be disappointed!

Oliver Stone finally comes face-to-face with the men who murdered his family and who forced him into hiding and justice is finally realized for Oliver Stone. Ron McLarty’s storytelling not only made the characters come to life,...more

We’re told in this book that this is the end of the fascinating group of misfits that constitutes the Camel Club, and it certainly seems that way: Stone performs his last two assassinations, and these very definitely are not sanctioned by the government, and then takes off, leaving his friends to fend for themselves – and to answer the questions when the federal investigators come, around. Stone simply cannot keep out of trouble, however – he sees a very young man being be upon by three hooligan...more

** Spoiler Alert **

This may be my favorite Camel Club book so far! It was really interesting seeing the Camel club divided and then slowly following the series of events that brought them back together.

At first I didn't think I was going to enjoy the story with Oliver Stone out on his own; however, from the very beginning of this book that became such a compelling story! It truly revealed what a big heart he has and what a sense of justice he possesses. He very well could have ignored Danny's p...more

David Baldacci is one of my fave authors and this is on my fave series especially with the addtion of Annabelle.

The story like was good and gripping, hooked you from the start to the end. You wonder what luck Oliver has going into a small town with this mysterious happenings going on.

I like the new friend he made, Joe Knox, and glad to see Harry Finn return also.

Over all, a really good suspsenseful read to the end.

Fans will not be dissapointed.

This series has been nothing short of brilliant till now but I half wish that Divine Justice had been the last. The reason for that is that there is such a happy ending, a perfect way to finish Oliver Stone's story. But I know there's a fifth book. And I do know that Oliver is going to suffer in all manners of imaginative ways. The author is going to make sure that is on the cards. But this book was a roller coaster in terms of storytelling. It was good to see the new members of the Camel Club...more

Very entertaining and fast paced book. Easy to read, almost like watching a good movie. The characters are well developed, although reading the first few books of this short series first would probably make it even more enjoyable. Moderately predictable, and at times far-fetched, but still entertaining and a nice book to read over the holiday break.
Peter Brimacombe
Oliver Stone is the hero of a thrilling action adventure. The first chapter puts Oliver Stone in Virginia where he uses his cover as a dumb itinerant working for Leroy a local man who sells firewood. Oliver Stone is running and his story is revealed in the course of his running. Joe Knox is chasing him. Joe Knox reports to Macklin Hayes who appears as both aloof and demanding. Oliver's friends Annabelle, Alex Ford, Caleb Shaw and Reuben Rhodes meet to look for him but Alex Ford cannot help them...more

No one can pull the reader in like Baldacci. He has written many books, but each is original with incredible and inventive mysteries. This is the fourth book in the Camel Club series. In this book, Oliver decides to leave Washington, but he doesn't get away because of a fight on the train that he steps in to help 3 against one. He winds up in Devine, Virginia. Instead of a normal small coal mining town, this is a town with a drug running high security prison. The system works perfectly until peo...more

David Baldacci is an author that I recently started reading. I am really enjoying his books. I like this one particularly. Oliver Stone is one of the main characters in a series of this author. This book has the main character going back-and-forth between his past and present. As with any series, the reader always likes to learn about a character's past more in depth. Oliver Stone is on the run in the beginning and appears to have moved away from his circle of present-day friends. As friends of...more

These are starting to get predictable and trite. I like some of the characters, but their attitude that law breaking is okay if you're a badass hero veteran at some point in your life is getting to me.
Pete
I liked the characters and felt the book was well written. I listened to it on tape and liked the reading of it. I just couldn't buy the premise of the last half of the book where the main characters get put into a prison after discovering what was going on in the town. Everyone else who got caught up in what they found out was immediately murdered. So it didn't make sense to me that they would not be immediately murdered too. I realize this was needed to complete the story so a rescue could hap...more

I will read anything and everything by this author. Stories are so real and well paced, with the proper amount of action. And the characters are now close friends of mine.

As you plod through the 500-odd pages of 'Divine Justice', you keep waiting for the story to gain momentum. As chapter after chapter recedes, your hopes wane. By the time you get to the last 100 pages, you have all but given up and are just hoping that it gets over ASAP. It starts promisingly, as most Baldacci novels do. There's the usual conspiracy and skullduggery. The scene shifts to hinterland US of A and the tale begins to falter almost immediately. Lots of people die violently and stuff ge...more

4th novel in the Camel Club series

The author’s has come up with another thrilling story. It opens where “Cold Stone” ended right after the assassinations of Carter Gray and Roger Simpson by Oliver Stone. Both men had conspired to ruin Stone’s life ultimately forcing him underground.

As the story unfolds, Stone now on the run hops a train to New Orleans. During the course of the train ride, Stone comes to the aid of Danny Riker who is targeted by a group of goons. They strike up a friendship and e...more
