The Collectors by David Baldacci

This is the second in The Camel Club series of books set in Washington DC. Again the book has an interesting plausible plot supported with funny quirky characters. We get to meet a new member to the Camel Club in the guise of con woman Annabelle Conroy. She is a strong confident ( no pun intended) woman and it is a refreshing character to get to know. There are no gratuitous sex plots to hinder one’s reading experience. The baddie could be badder but hey all things cant be perfect right. Forgeries, old biddy spies, rare books, cons, gambling, spies etc etc

In this one we also get to knoe the ragtag members of the Camel Club a bit better and Milton as always comes up tops.

Loved it and am sad it was the last in this series so I will have to find other DC set books to read…

Rated 7

Made me want to learn more about the rare book field.

Split Second by David Baldacci

Another satisfying read from Baldacci. Set in my favourite US city – Washington DC. It tells the tale of a former secret service agent Sean King and how he helps Michelle to find her protectee who was kidnapped on the campaign trail. As ever he weaves an intricate storyline that is compelling and hooks you in. I thoroughly enjoyed it. The ending was a bit …meh. but the ride was still enjoyable. I will be on the lookout for more in the series.

Rated 6

The Camel Club by David Baldacci

This is the first in the Camel Club series of books set in Washington DC. It uncovers a plot within the intelligence community to kidnap POTUS. A highly entaertaining reda that never loses pace. The characters are great and utterly believeable. I love Milton with his OCD.

Highly recommended read in the spy thriller genre. Will definitely be on the lookout for more Baldacci books.
