BOOK REVIEW: DIVINE JUSTICE
BY DAVID BALDACCI

We hope you enjoy this book review by Allen Hott.



The opening with Oliver Stone diving into the Chesapeake Bay late at night, swimming to shore and ending up in a busted down shed on a farm is one strange way for the newest episode of the Camel Club to begin. However, Divine Justice from that point becomes another great adventure that David Baldacci has cooked up for the motley assortment that makes up the club. Even though many of the Camel Club adventures take place in Washington, D.C. this one mostly transpires away from our nationís capital.

As usual many different characters make up this story but also as usual they all have important roles and play them well. Oliver Stone has always been haunted and even hunted by his past as not only Oliver Stone but as John Carr (his real name) also. He has had scores to settle based on the murder of his wife and daughter that was caused by his allegiance to the United States. In this book much of the past and those happenings are brought to light.

And they are brought out as Stone is pursued at first by the CIA, FBI, and other agencies for his role in the assassination of two high ranking governmental officials. However while on the run from those groups Stone ends up in a small town in Virginia and there he finds even more problems and more enemies.

As has been his normal way of living Stone always helps out the underdog or the good guy who is being put upon by the bad guys. In doing so in the town of Divine Stone finds some very unusual things going on and apparently no one seems to care. He also finds a woman who like himself has lost her mate and is now worried about losing her son. Stone becomes romantically involved with Abby, first time in any of the Camel Club adventures that he has done anything of that nature.

The more he digs into things the more problems he encounters. And while all of these things are happening one particular government agent is closing in on his trail to hopefully take him back (or kill him) for his part in the assassination.

However the good news is that the other members of the Camel Club have also united and they are on their way much like the cavalry in old western movies.

Thankfully Baldacci brings everything to a satisfactory ending and leaves an opening for yet another Camel Club adventure in the future. If you have not read any of the previous Camel Club stories by Baldacci it may be worth your while to read them prior to this one as it is a great new chapter in a great series.
