BOOK REVIEW: STONE COLD
Has Oliver Stone met his match in Harry Finn? You will have to read “Stone Cold” to find the answer.
The Camel Club members, along with its leader Oliver Stone, are respected and feared in Washington, D.C. This club’s purpose is to keep a watchful eye on what is going on and as a result they have gained both friends and enemies. There isn’t anything the leaders would do to prevent The Camel Club from discovering things they do not want made public.
Stone and the other members of The Camel Club are now trying to protect Annabelle Conroy. Annabelle did something unthinkable to casino big wheel Jerry Bagger, who murdered her mother. Jerry is now out for revenge.
Harry Finn then enters the picture. Harry is just like any other normal family man but he really lives two lives. He has many skills and helps to keep us safe. Finn was hired for a job to prove that there were several flaws in the security system and was able to slip into an airport and place a bomb on a plane without anyone getting suspicious. The Department of Homeland Security got authorization for this job and hired Finn to carry it through. Finn’s other job is that of an unstoppable killer and he is now out to get Oliver Stone. Men from Stone’s past are turning up dead.
Now the big questions are who will win and will they both survive?
It is not a must to read these two prior books by David Baldacci – The Camel Club and the Collectors - but I think it would help you follow along with the story. The author has created some very interesting characters for this novel and the reader will learn to like them even though they might be someone you should have doubts about. The character I liked the best is Harry Finn because he reminds you of James Bond all over again. It is a difficult feat to top the other two books in this series but David Baldacci has accomplished this and more. Stone Cold is the best in the Camel Club series yet. This book has it all – spies, suspense, action, twists and turns. Be sure to add “Stone Cold” to your reading list.
