Wow, another great novel from Mr. Baldacci! Brings back the crew from The Camel Club, and throws in for good measure a smart and stunning con artist named Annabelle. Very suspenseful read blends murder, forgery, national security, and, yes, a good dose of humor besides ... even if you haven't read The Camel Club {Why the heck not?? It's terrific, too!!} you'll still enjoy The Collectors.

I really have enjoyed this series, The Camel Club is just a wonderful group of real characters. This is by far the best of them that I've read. If you haven't read any of them, it's well worth your time. But be sure and start with the first one so the characters will be developed. Absolutely great.

A wonderful, fast-paced book by David Baldacci. It keeps you guessing as to what will happen and how they will figure out who is the culprit. Great read!

This was a great read, I didn't want to put it down! It uses the same characters from The Camel Club and introduces another character that will probably be used in a future book.

Many subplots going at once that eventually tie in and overlap. The ending is wide open for the next book, which annoys me because I like for things to END. However, I really enjoyed it and lovers of James Patterson, John Grisham, and Steve Martini will surely enjoy this read as well.

These "Camel Club" books are fascinating. I always learn so much when I read them. As well as, having a good escape into another world with which I am totally unfamiliar. Excellent writer!

Another enjoying book by Baldacci. This is the sequel to The Camel Club. It leaves you hanging somewhat at the end and I am hopeful that the next in the series answers some questions about our newest "member" of the club. Also missed Adelphia, only one quick refernce to her. Hoping she is also in the next book. Always a good read when you celect a Baldacci book.

Meet the Camel Club, a group of eccentric men with mysterious pasts who make it their mission to find out whats really going on behind the closed doors of Americas leaders. The speaker of the house is assasinated and the Camel Club finds that the director of the Library of Congress' death was not an accident and may be related. A great story of high-stakes espionage that threatens to bring America to its knees. Even if you hate politics you will love this book.

And the outrageous iconoclasts of the Camel Club have found a chilling connection with another death: the demise of the director of the Library of Congress's rare books room, whose body has been found in a locked vault where seemingly nothing could have harmed him.
A man who calls himself Oliver Stone is the group's unofficial leader. Staying one step ahead of his violent past and headquartered in a caretaker's cottage in Mt. Zion Cemetary, Stone, drawing on his vast experience and accute deductive powers, discovers that someone is selling America to it's enemies one classified secret at a time. When Annabelle Conroy, the greatest con-artist of her generation, struts onto the scene in high-helled boots, the Camel Club gets a sexy new edge. And they'll need it, because the two murders are hurtling them into a world of high stakes espionage that threatenes to bring America to it's knees.

This is a sequel to the Camel Club. Oliver Stone and his Camel Club become dangerously involved in the highest level of spying, quite by chance. Exciting from the beginning to the end...if you love action, mystery and betrayal, you'll be engrossed in this book.

I really enjoyed the first and this second book didn't disappoint me.
I like how baldacci manages to bring in a new character
with all the plot development needed for future books.
this time the original 4 are joined by the newest member
a secret service agent and the former wife of calabs boss
but she is not what you'd expect. you will have to read
to find out.
there are twists and turns that baldacci does so well.
a fun read, kept to the world they live in.
it's great to read about friends that trust each other so well.

Thoroughly enjoyed this one - better than The Camel Club. Couldn't figure out switching back and forth between two exciting storylines but about midway the author brought them together - a little anticlimatic but still a good read and now I'm looking for Stone Cold a continuation of the characters (series?)

I had a hard time at first reading this book. For some reason I just could not connect, then the intrigue of the characters got to me and everything starts coming together. This book is a must read.

Maybe it's me but I didn't enjoy this Camel Club book as much as the first. It was a fast read tho. Don't think I bonded with the characters or found them as interesting as I first did. Ah well. I think Baldacci can mass produce/publish too much and that isn't a good thing.

This book was a great read which kept me up way past my bed time night after night. I highly recommend this book to any of those who like mystery thrillers.

It was a little predictable, though, with key information left out by the author until the very end. I would definitely give this 4 stars.

This is also an energetic and fun read, but seemed a bit more predictable than the first. However, I, again, picked up the next in the series quickly, anxious to read the next chapter in Annabelle Conroy's story.

Such an exciting book with so many different parts. It is based in D.c and the old virginia area where a group of friends who are also highly involved in the government are avenging the murder of their dear friend. The author does a good job at creating seperate story lines and then tying the characters to each other! Really good Read!
