Following the instant # 1 New York Times bestseller Stone Cold, Oliver Stone and the Camel Club return in David Baldacci's most surprising thriller yet . . .
Known by his alias, "Oliver Stone," John Carr is the most wanted man in America. With two pulls of the trigger, the men who destroyed Stone's life and kept him in the shadows were finally silenced.
But his freedom comes at a steep price: The assassinations he carried out prompt the highest levels of the U.S. government to unleash a massive manhunt. Behind the scenes, master spy Macklin Hayes is playing a very personal game of cat and mouse. He, more than anyone, wants Stone dead.
With their friend and unofficial leader in hiding, the members of the Camel Club risk everything to save him. Now, as the hunters close in, Stone's flight from the demons of his past will take him from the power corridors of Washington, D.C., to the small, isolated coal-mining town of Divine, Virginia-and into a world every bit as lethal as the one he left behind.
- Comic Book "Novel"
Give it a 3 star cause it's more comic book than novel with a older hero (60 something) acting like a young Clark Kent/Superman(20 something)).
The book opens with the hero jumping off a cliff (after whacking a high profile target) into very cold water and swimming to safety. He's now on the run from a evil military General who has "abused" him since he was a young soldier (war hero with no medals)in Vietnam.
Oliver ends up in Divine a small coal mining town with a drug "problem" where we get another evil character who loves to torture people in his hell hole crib.
The ending's beyond belief for an adult, but kids may buy it.
Like too many best selling author's their newer novels ain't in the same league with their older (career building) stuff. Just make more money off your NAME, not the quality of your words pen'd on paper! ...more info
- Shocked by the Number of Typos
I have always enjoyed the books in the Camel Club series and while I enjoyed the plot of this one, I was highly disappointed by the amount of typos. They were inexcusable and shocking. Baldacci needs to work a little closer with an editor and depend a little less on spell check. ...more info

- The End of the Camel Club???
"Divine Justice" reunites Oliver Stone and the Camel Club in a good book by David Baldacci. I've enjoyed all the Camel Club books and while the writing wasn't as good as it could have been, (I think that the more successful an author becomes more successful the quality of his writing suffers) it's still worth reading.
Oliver Stone flees after killing the two people he blames for killing his wife, stealing his daughter and then killing her, but he doesn't get far. As the book unfolds, we finally find out why Oliver Stone (aka John Carr) is the man he is and what has fueled his desire for "Divine Justice."
After coming to the aid of a young man being beaten by three others he is forced to leave the train they are on with the young man. They wind up in the boy's hometown, Divine that harbors a super-max prison atop a mountain, which can only be reached by helicopter.
All is not well in Divine and since trouble always finds Oliver, he is soon enmeshed in the thick of it. While trying to get to the bottom of the town's secrets he realizes that for the first time since his wife's death he's falling in love with Abby, the mother of the young man he rescued but they may all die if he cannot find the truth. Realizing that their leader and friend is in trouble the members of the Camel Club search for him to give them whatever assistance they can.
The novel graphically describes the backbreaking, grueling, and deadly lives of coal miners who work underground so that we can have electricity. In one chapter Abby says that anyone who has a loved one working in the mines don't use electricity for cooking or heat because they know the "true" cost of electricity. I'll admit after reading this I've become more conservative with my energy consumption.
This could be the end of the Camel Club series, so if you've enjoyed the previous books you need to read this one.

- Another Solid Camel Club Read
David Baldacci once again does not disappoint with his book Divine Justice. An excellent continuation of the Camel Club series picks up right where the last book, Stone Cold, left off. The constant action and enjoyment of his books make them great reads every time.
Though many of his books can be read as a stand alone I suggest you refresh yourself with Stone Cold before reading Divine Justice. This book would be tough to follow if you did not know the development of Oliver Stone and his Came Club buddies. The entire series is great but you might be confused during much of this book if you don't have the background Baldacci's previous books provide.
The action never stalled from the first chapter while the end is as surprising as any of Baldacci's previous books. Be prepared for a thrill ride. I only wish this book would come out as a movie series, it would be excellent!...more info
- Simply Divine...but not quite
It is a very good idea if one has read the previous Camel Club books before reading Divine. This one is a big departure from the previous ones with Oliver doing a solo and not really a part of the original ensemble. This is all pretty much Oliver on his own and on the run in a solo role. I do think Oliver does better with an ensemble but I read the whole thing and it was fairly good overall. The last 30% of the story was just not as good as the beginning at all and it loped along a predictable line with Oliver beset by the evil guys who are nearly like cartoon characters. Having the President getting involved at the end was rather a large cliche too. It was the easy way out...call in the Prez.
I find Baldacci's earlier stories to be more powerful and riveting and although I gave it 4 stars, I probably gave it one too many....more info

"A Great Read" 4 stars
David Baldacci draws us in to the promise of a fascinating and fast-paced storyline following the Camel Club members from the very first sentence.
Revenge, justice, and loyalty are all at stake as John Carr and friends attempt to right wrongs on a national level while also uncovering a small town's secrets and bring its citizens back from a state of lawlessness and cover-ups so they can live again without fear.
This hard to put down story has you cheering for the good guys even when they have to commit crimes to save themselves and others. Divine Justice is a satisfying and enjoyable read.
- An excellent wrap up
Having read all the Camel Club books up to this point i was very much looking forward to reading this next chapter in the adventure of Oliver Stone and his team. I must say that i was not Disappointed in this book whatsoever. As a matter of fact i may have enjoyed this one more than several of the other books in this series.
This story takes a different turn than several of the other books and quickly gets out of the washington DC political spotlight that several of the other books have stuck with. For me this was a nice change. I enjoyed the twists and turns and in many cases i was left trying to guess what was going to happen next. I love books that keep me guessing.
Upon finishing this book i was left wondering if this was the last in the series.... I hope not. With that said, Kudos to you Mr. Baldacci for another great novel!...more info
True to his previous books, this was GREAT!!
One of the best, not like so many others that put their name on someone else's work. True adventure. Keeps the trash out....more info

- FROM A NEW DAVID BALDACCI FAN
This is the very first book I've read from David Baldacci. I realize, after reading DIVINE JUSTICE, that I have missed out over the years!
DIVINE JUSTICE is not just any CIA novel. It takes twists and turns, from a turn to rural Virginia to a prison that would have been scary even during Medieval times to illicit drug trafficking. Oliver Stone, the man from the "Camel Club," is the most wanted man in America, accused of killing a senator and a big wig in the intelligence community.
This book is sure not to bore. I am a new Baldacci fan, thanks to DIVINE JUSTICE. ...more info

- 4th and best in the series!
Baldacci truly did a wonderful job with these four books about the "Camel Club." The first book is THE CAMEL CLUB, the second, THE COLLECTORS, the third, STONE COLD, and the final one is DIVINE JUSTICE. What an amazing and wonderful cast of characters that you immediately fall in love with in THE CAMEL CLUB. Fortunately my local library had all of these books on tape, so I enjoyed them in that venue. I would hope that any avid reader of mystery would pick up these books. You'll simply love Oliver Stone (John Carr). He's one amazing man. Don't hesitate to read Baldacci and check out his website! Wonderful reading...I hope there's more to come!...more info
I am thoroughly enjoying this author. Just when I think it can't get better he comes out with another Camel Club idea, as good and often better than the last. I enjoy all this author's books but the Camel Club radiates fun and thought provoking themes. Thank You B. Grantham...more info

- Justice at Last!
Divine Justice tied all the loose ends of The Camel Club - a fun series to read. Baldacci is a master weaver of story telling, and this last sequel to The Camel Club series kept me turning pages knowing that I was hooked to the very end. I must say that Divine Justice is, by far, the best one of the series, but I do hope that Baldacci gets on with other stories and puts this series to rest.
Oliver Stone is a great character. I wonder who will play him in the movie version? I can suggest Anthony Hopkins......more info
