What People Think about "Stone Cold"

I am so glad to have read this book in the state of mind that I did. I'm beginning to think that this author is totally compatible with the way my mind works.

The first one involves Annabelle Conroy. Annabelle is the con artist who robbed Jerry Bagger of forty million dollars from his casino as a revenge for killing her mother decades ago (book 2). It's up to the Camel Club to help Annabelle survive. The second storyline involves Oliver Stone who is really an ex-military killing machine. Carter Gray and Roger Simpson would like nothing better than to have John Carr dead - for real this time. With the way Stone Cold ended, I had no choice but to listen to the first two chapters of the next book, Divine Justice.

The plot points covered in the second novel were neatly tied up without any loose ends. The revenge of Harry Finn for his father was handled perfectly but the way in which the story branched out was a little depressing. The characters were much better in personality and had more backstories which I did care till the end.

Carter Gray & Roger Simpson are two of the most self-serving people who should not be in leadership positions but they are.

The sequel to The Collectors and book 3 in the Camel Club series, offers once again two seperate storylines that this time do not merge at all. Easily the best of the first three Camel Club books, while the Annabelle storyline is satisfactory, the story line of Oliver Stone getting confronted by his past life and former boss is quite exciting and explosive.

Camel Club, book 3 Annabelle Conroy is again joining Oliver Stone and the Camel Club's group of mismatched characters in this suspenseful and unforgettable novel of revenge, conspiracy and murder.

But as Stone and the Camel Club circle the wagons to protect Annabelle, a new opponent, who makes Bagger's menace pale by comparison, suddenly arises. Behind this slaughter stands one man: Harry Finn. As Annabelle and the Camel Club fight for their lives, the twists and turns whipsaw, leading to a finale that is as explosive as it is shattering.

With a massive CIA manning unleashed, The Camel Club, teaming up with the operative's wife, who was a Russian double agent, discover all the truth and nearly busts Carter Gray and his colleague Roger Simpson, but somehow they managed to escape.
