Description

In The Collectors, #1 New York Times best-selling author David Baldacci once again demonstrates why he is one of the world's favorite writers. Helped by a beautiful grifter, the "Camel Club"-the four-man band of conspiracy theorists-returns to battle a threat to national security. Annabelle Conroy is con-artist extraordinaire; Jerry Bagger, mobster and mark; and Roger Seagraves, master assassin. All come straight from central casting. Seagraves is killing high-level government officials, and Conroy is putting together the con of the century, with Bagger as the target. The mysterious death of a rare-books expert at the Library of Congress launches the story, which splits off at first into two different plotlines. In one, Conroy and her team work their way up to their major score. In the other, the Camel Club investigates the mysterious death of a close friend. Things are slightly more exciting in Conroy's world. She's assembling her team, eager to settle an old score by taking down Atlantic City's most notorious and ruthless casino owner. After a series of capers out west to build their bankroll, the team heads back east.

Professional reviews

"Bestselling author David Baldacci reprises THE CAMEL CLUB, a slightly wacky group of overage crime-stoppers in Washington, DC, led by Caleb Shaw, a former CIA assassin. Their efforts to investigate the mysterious deaths of a prestigious librarian and the Speaker of the House eventually overlap with another story line--this one about sassy con artist Annabelle Conroy. The multivoiced narration provides needed definition for many of the characters but seems awkward accompanied by the author's stilted dialogue tags. Aimee Jolson depicts a smooth and confident Conroy, while L.J. Ganser and Richard Mover cover the male characters and the narration. Overall, this is a modestly entertaining sequel, thanks mostly to the fast-moving plot. N.M.C. (c) AudioFile 2007, Portland, Maine"
