The Camel Club is Back

The Camel Club is back - in The Collectors by David Baldacci. Oliver Stone and the other members of the Camel Club are searching for the truth. Following are some of the questions that have to be answered in this book.

The U.S. Speaker of the House has been murdered and a terrorist group has reportedly claimed responsibility. Is this the truth?

The director of the Library of Congress ends of dead inside the rare book collection vault. There is no apparent cause for his death. Could his death have been murder? Is there a connection between his death and the murder of the U.S. Speaker?

Caleb Shaw has been named as the executor for his deceased boss’ personal rare book collection. He discovers a rare book of the Psalm’s in a hidden safe in the vault. Where and how did this book come to be in this collection?

The neighbor to the director of the Library of Congress is a crooked defense contractor. He is considered a suspect in the deaths of the U.S. Speaker of the House and the director of the Library of Congress. He is shot and one of the members of the Camel Club becomes a suspect. Why is he killed and who killed him?

A con artist is introduced. She comes to DC and helps the Camel Club. What is her connection? Will she hang around?

These are just a portion of the questions the Camel Club are looking at. The best way to see how they do is to read the book – and I think it is worth it.
