The Camel Cub is an exceptionally well-crafted thrill ride that I enjoyed immensely. It follows a conspiracy theory club (think the Lone Gunmen from the X-Files only older, more intelligent, and more interesting) that stumbles upon a plot against the President. This is probably the best book I`ve read in regards to Islamic ideology. It had character and action. It deals with political issues without being preachy or seeming like a “soapbox” book.
For some reason, I thought that David Baldacci wrote “lawyer” books like John Grisham (which he may in other titles). Nothing against Grisham, but if I see lawyer on the back of the book, I put it down. Maybe I just can`t sympathize with a lawyer, but for whatever reason, it`s a turn-off to me. The Camel Club, however, was more Robert Ludlum than John Grisham, and I`m looking forward to checking out Baldacci`s other titles.
Overall, I would highly recommend this book as an intricate and very detailed thriller with plenty of action and intrigue.
