From Publishers Weekly
Starred Review. The modern-day paladins of the Camel Club are back in their third exciting adventure (after 2006’s The Collectors). Justice-seekers Milton, Caleb, Reuben and honorary member Alex Ford, a Secret Service agent, are led by feisty Oliver Stone, aka former CIA assassin John Carr. Their associate, Annabelle Conroy, is a slick con artist on the run after stealing $40 million from lunatic casino owner Jerry Bagger, who killed her mother. Oliver’s CIA past distracts him from Annabelle’s cause: his old unit, Triple 6, was responsible for the death of Raymond Solomon, branded a traitor during the Cold War, and now Solomon’s son, DHS security expert Harry Finn, is picking off Triple 6 members. Oliver could be next if Carter Gray, his former boss, reveals that John Carr isn’t really dead. Gripping, chilling and full of surprises, Baldacci’s latest reveals the anarchy that lurks under the slick facade of corrupted governments. (Nov.)

From Batty’s Girl
You will absolutely need to read the Camel Club and The Collectors before picking up this book, but do yourself the favor and read the series.  Plenty of plot twists and “oh, no he didn’t” moments to keep you reading… and one heck of a cliff hanger ending.
