Hell's Corner by David Baldacci

Hell's Corner by David Baldacci
Read by Ron McLarty and Orlagh Cassidy


I borrowed this book from my local library and played it on my iPhone. Since I drove over my iPod, I have to use my iPhone as one. It's not as bad as I thought it would be. This is the 5th book of  Camel Club. It's a story of John Carr now known as Oliver Stone. He's a former triple 6 assassin.

In this book, Oliver Stone is back in service. They gave him a card and he has a mission. He's supposed to go abroad to Mexico for a training before being put back in active duty. On the last night before his departure, he walked around his favorite park. Lafayette Park. This park is located across the White House. It attracts a lot tourist. That night, there were about 4 people in the park. Then an explosion happens which started the ball rolling into a fun and entertaining ride.

The bad guys is not what you think, the good guys is not what you think. Just when you think Oliver Stone's got it, it turns out to be wrong. I also get to know a little bit about the capital, and the area they called Hell's Corner. Yes, it's real, and this book gives you a fantastic tour of it.

With Ron McLarty and Orlagh Cassidy reading the audio book, it makes for an extraordinary experience.Ron McLarty is a captivating reading. He is what I think Oliver Stone should should like. I have not read a single book of this series because I enjoyed Ron's rendition of the whole thing.

Have you read this series?

  1. I did read (actually listen to) Hell's corner and I too found it to be captivating. If you liked Hell's Corner, I'm sure you'd also like the Rapp series by Vince Flynn.

    Do you find yourself having the most random information stored in your memory from all the books your read? Like knowing what 1600, Pennsylvania Avenue is referring to, or knowing Quantico equals FBI and Langley equals CIA headquarters?

    1. Yeah, I totally get what you mean. It's fun though. I have started on Mitch Rapp. Have you tried Lee Child's Reacher series? He's quite an awesome character.

    2. I've listened to nearly all of the Reacher series. The guy that reads them--Dick Hill owns the Reacher character; fabulous reading. I hear there's a new one out--"the affair".

    1. Book Girl, thank you so much for the nomination. I was occupied with many things and unfortunately, blogging has become hit or miss. I'm starting law school this July. While my time will be madly occupied with school, I still would like to blog whenever I can. Thank you so much for thinking of me when you did your nomination.
