Do you have to read the first book in the Camel Club series before you read this one?

JOHN NICOLAY Yes. First was a good, quick read. This follow-up was ridiculous. So many highly improbable events. The last few pages especially where a number of loose ends were closed with one-liners. The idea that the Speaker of the House would be assassinated to keep a job was just absurd. The entire Library of Congress trail was silly and complicated. If you are going to kill someone, shoot them.
Susan I didn't. I've enjoyed The Collectors, but wish I had started with the first of the Camel Club series.
Casey It isn't wholly necessary, though there will be some moments/characters that you might be expected to know something about that you won't but it does a fairly decent job of standing on its own. Camel Club is a fun read though.
Jack Heath Yes. Unlike some other mystery / thriller series, this one does develop along plot and character lines. You are missing a lot when you start with #2 or #3.
