Near future; one of those "we can't go to the police" type of stories. The book centers itself around four conspiracy theorists who call themselves the Camel Club; one stakes out as a protester near the White House. These men draw in two government officials on the case after they witness a murder. They don't know it but an incredibly devised plot is in the process by multiple countries. There are many characters to keep track of; they all slowly assemble throughout the book as if drawn by a magnet. Could something of this magnitude possibly happen?

Definitely a page turner; not a Tom Clancy or a Ralph Peters, more like Dan Brown, only a tad better. Well researched, with interesting factoids and good political points.

I do feel the the author is trying to make a political statement. This may just be the way he wanted his characters, but it is pronounced throughout. There are some ridiculous moments, although they can be overlooked. I think the power to the executive is unrealistic. Overall, a well thought out conspiracy.
