Excerpt from Hell’s Corner

I haven’t had a chance to make a separate post about it yet, but if you like thrillers, take a second to have a look at this Instafreebie promo.  A great collection of free reads for you, including In the Tick of Time.

My Camp Nanowrimo book is coming along, currently sitting at 75,000 words. I should be done it by this time next week. Though I’m thinking it might end up a bit longer than the projected 100,000 words.

Keep your eyes open at the end of this week for the release of She Wore Mourning, book one in the Zachary Goldman Mysteries series!

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme. Read the rules and more teasers at The Purple Booker. Anyone can play along.

I just started this one today. Hell’s Corner by David Baldacci is Book 5 of the Camel Club series, bringing back the highly-skilled Oliver Stone, on a new mission to save the United States and its president.

The pain might become even more intense. The communication he’d received an hour after returning home had been explicit. They would come for him at midnight. No debate was allowed, no negotiation suffered through, no chance of any compromise. The party of the other end of the equation always dictated the terms.

David Balducci, Hell’s Corner

John Carr, aka Oliver Stone-once the most skilled assassin his country ever had-stands in Lafayette Park in front of the White House, perhaps for the last time. The president has personally requested that Stone serve his country again on a high-risk, covert mission. Though he’s fought for decades to leave his past career behind, Stone has no choice but to say yes.

Then Stone’s mission changes drastically before it even begins. It’s the night of a state dinner honoring the British prime minister. As he watches the prime minister’s motorcade leave the White House that evening, a bomb is detonated in Lafayette Park, an apparent terrorist attack against both leaders. It’s in the chaotic aftermath that Stone takes on a new, more urgent assignment: find those responsible for the bombing.

British MI-6 agent Mary Chapman becomes Stone’s partner in the search for the unknown attackers. But their opponents are elusive, capable, and increasingly lethal; worst of all, it seems that the park bombing may just have been the opening salvo in their plan. With nowhere else to turn, Stone enlists the help of the only people he knows he can trust: the Camel Club. Yet that may be a big mistake.

  1. why it is so short?

  2. What a compelling plot! The Camel Club sounds like an old speakeasy or something like that! I hope you enjoy your read!
