Summary

The mystery deepens in the gripping second novel in David Baldacci's Camel Club series, The Collectors.

Annabelle is a beautiful stranger with a mysterious past, planning the heist of the century - two short cons to fund a long con, then a life of unashamed luxury, incognito in a foreign land.

Jonathan DeHaven, the shy head of the Rare Books Division at the Library of Congress, is planning nothing more than an uneventful day amongst his cherished collection.

But when Jonathan is found dead by Caleb Shaw, a member of the Camel Club, two conspiracies are destined to meet as the club determines to track down the dead man's long-lost wife - and Annabelle decides to avenge the death of her beloved ex-husband.

Unfortunately, the victim of Annabelle's long con has sworn eternal revenge, and Jonathan's killers will stop at nothing to keep the truth about his death, and the code they have perfected over the years, from surfacing....

The Collectors is followed by Stone Cold, Divine Justice and Hell's Corner.

Which hand is it in

Good story line even though it was split into two parts and one is a cliff hanger. For excitement and action you can’t beat this author

love this series

Love the Camel Club characters. Good blend of intrigue, adventure and humour. Not sure it needs 3 naraters but I enjoyed it anyway. Looking forward to the next one.

not worth a credit

Just a jumble of a plot with peculiar narration. Quite enjoyed Camel Club but won't bother with any more sequels.

Brilliant read, intrigue to the end

Very good story line, slowly unfolding to keep you interested. Good follow on from 1st book but not necessary to have read it

Couldn’t Put it down

I have read many of David Baldacci’s novels but this was definitely one of his best. Excellent narrator and a story line that crippled me to the end. Look forward to listening to the next in the series.
I would recommend this to anyone that enjoys a gripping thriller

Poor Narration

Couldn’t listen to the story because the narrator was simply not good enough. He had the wrong type of voice for a thriller. I’ve given lots of Baldacci’s stories 5 stars but, as I say, I only listened to a few chapters before I gave up.

Bad copy

Not the best narration for me, also the audio skips and jumps which is very frustrating. Good story.

AUDIO ISSUES

I enjoyed this book and the performances despite issues within the audio skipping and jumping.
