With a master spy and the U. S. government after him, former CIA assassin Oliver Stone is America's most wanted man-but escaping D.C. won't protect him from a lethal world of political corruption in this #1 New York Times bestselling thriller.

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. Yet behind the scenes, master spy Macklin Hayes is playing a very personal game of cat and mouse. He, more than anyone else, wants John Carr dead. With their friend and unofficial leader in hiding, the members of the Camel Club risk everything to save him. 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 coal-mining town of Divine, Virginia--and into a world every bit as bloody and lethal as the one he left behind.

If you are going to sell the paperback version of Devine Justice for $4.99 then you really shouldn't be selling the e-book version for $14.99 It dosn't make sense. Why wouldn't people just buy the paperback version. Or better yet get it out of the library. This is something you really have to think about.

If you haven't read the other "Camel Club" series, the book might not be as good as if you had. Camel Club continues to shine in this book. Good story plenty of action. Interesting ending. Well worth reading

I eagerly await each book about the Camel Club. I hope that Divine Justice is not the last in the series. With each one, I fear that the Camel Club story will come to an end. With the rich characters of the Camel CLub already a part of my literary family, I am hopeful that John Knox will be become a part of the Camel Club in the same way that Alex Ford and Annabelle have. I think what I enjoy most is that such diverse personalities have joined together and formed such strong bonds of friendship. The fact that the stories surround Washington, DC either directly or indirectly parallel our own fascination with politics and politicians and the people who often suffer because of what they have sacrificed for their country. Please continue this series. In much the same way as the Sean King and Michelle Maxwell stories, I never hesitate to pick up the latest book involving the Camel Club.

I have read many of David Baldacci's earlier novels, but haven't read him in awhile. Big mistake - I forgot how good he is!

Divine Justice picks up the story of Oliver Stone, aka John Carr - one of the most deadly assasins the U.S. government ever produced. But when Carr wanted out and they killed his family, they made a terrible mistake. Stone retaliates and Macklin Hayes, a high ranking spy, is determined to find him and make him disappear for good. Stone ends up in the small mining town of Divine, Virgina hoping to lie low for awhile. But trouble seems to go hand in hand with Oliver Stone. All is not fine in Divine. Stone's sense of justice will not let him walk away. At the same time his friends from the Camel Club are trying to find him to help him.

As I had not read the Camel Club, The Collectors or Stone Cold, the other novels featuring these characters, I was a bit concerned that I wouldn't understand the plot in Divine Justice. But it wasn't a problem. A few pages in I was up to speed. Most of the action takes place in the Divine setting.

If you're looking for a fast paced, thrilling novel - this is it! The characters are larger than life and the action never stops. Good and evil are clearly defined and you'll find yourself rooting for John Carr.

If you have enjoyed the Jack Reacher character by Lee Child, then this is a series you would enjoy.

Character and plot development are among Baldacci's many strengths as a writer and he doesn't disappoint in his latest addition to the Camel Club Series. Similar to most of his novels, the action/thrill factor is high, while still developing relationships among the characters and introducing new characters to the group. Another 5 star effort!

I am a fan of David Baldacci's writing. I enjoyed the Maxwell and King series so much that I also got hooked on The Camel Club series. The characters are wonderfully developed in the first book of the series, and this carries through in each of the following books. The story here was interesting and entertaining. Many have complained that it's too '24' or 'too unbelievable'. Well, it is a WORK OF FICTION. Mr Baldacci is a wonderful storyteller, and his talent does not stop with this novel. The entire series is suspenseful and full of twists and turns.

As is the case for each one of the books in the Oliver Stone Series this was a fun and entertaining read that I couldn't put down. They just keep getting better and better. I can't decide if I like this one or the last one better. There are some pretty corny stuff in the book, but overall I enjoyed it. If you're a Baldacci fan, and a fan of the Oliver Stone series I'd recommend giving this book a look.

David Baldacci insists on keeping the Camel Club going. It would be divine justice if he didn't. His latest effort is a disaster of a story, with little to recommend it. Having started the series off well, it would be better to let these characters rest than to take them to the country to investigate a weird prison scheme. But he takes them, and their credibility has never been so strained. The story just gets harder and harder to believe as any resemblance to reality gets left behind in the need to come up with something new.

I've loved every single book that David Baldacci has written. He keeps me riveted with what the characters goes through and keeps me guessing as to if the bad guys truly get it in the end. And I am definitely glad he decided to bring back "Oliver/John" because he is a very memorable character. It takes me, in all honesty, about 3-4 days to finish his books. I am buying this book and a copy for my mom because she loves him too.

I have ever been a fan of David Baldacci's work--from "Absolute Power" on. I am especially enamored of the stories and characters in The Camel Club series--including this fourth, "Divine Justice," so I am HOPEful that, somehow Mr. B. will grace us with even more of them! As always, my curiosity and brain wheel-turning kept me turning the pages at a rapid rate--both anxious to get to the denouement AND sorry that it would end: The signs of the BEST. The story line for "First Family" (book immediately after "Divine Justice" had me fooled, comfortably, for awhile. I should have known better. There is ALWAYS more to his characters than when you first "meet" them. Also, the continuous use of people and characters attached to the presidency and The Mansion gives only joy to this lover of details of all things political. THANK YOU, MR. BALDACCI...Your gifts to us readers are MUCH appreciated!

I am a big fan of this writer and I really did love this story. It covered the bases and clearly set-up the story. I love the setting, the topic and yes it is like 24 but anyone who loves espionage and action...this could definitely be a great series. Camel Club and all!

I usually like Balducci, but if there was one more way they could have tortured Oliver Stone while torturing the readers I don't know what it would have been. It's not plausible for a human being to live through all of that. I felt like I was watching Jack Bauer on 24.

Painful to read. I hope the Camel Club has been put to bed.

Another really good Camel Club story. Baldacci's cast of anti-heroes come through again in a rapid paced thriller. Oliver Stone, the head of the club, finally gets some payback!
TerriBooks on LibraryThing More than 1 year ago
Another fast-moving thriller in the Camel Club series. Completely improbable, but it sounds good when you're reading it. This one gets a bit over-the-top in terms of violence, but it is fun to see the characters introduced in each book come together. Caleb's description of why he is such a good driver is a high point in the book.

Divine Justice is the 4th book in the Camel Club series. The book plunges directly into the story by starting a heartbeat after the last book ends, with Oliver Stone breaking water to get his first breath after jumping off a 30' cliff into the ocean. Oliver is in constant motion from that point on, always worried about the authorities catching up with him. All the while he keeps making decisions to help others that is likely to get him caught, until his 'help' lands him in even worse trouble.Oliver's friends suspect he had something to do with the 2 high profile killings and after Knox interrogates all of the Camel Club (except Rueben, who avoids Knox) they fear what will happen so try to find Oliver before Knox. It turns into a game of Cat and Mouse and a big Cat shows up that no one was expecting and makes matters even more difficult.Overall, I enjoyed this book quite a bit, the action was constant, the mystery was decent and while Oliver is still superman, believability isn't left too far behind. No major plot holes and some really fun table turns happen. Worth a read.

great book! love political suspense
dannN on LibraryThing More than 1 year ago
I picked up this book as a double volume and after reading "Stone Cold" was pleased to find that "Divine Justice" was a sequel. I enjoyed the diversion of action in the little town of Divine, away from the blood and thunder of the American FBI, CIA, etc, etc. It was nice to have a bit of action amongst "ordinary" people.Fast-paced, full of action. A nice read!

This read more like a Jack Reacher novel than a Camel Club novel. That said, it was interesting with a few unexpected characters. Unfortunately, the quirks that made the other members of the Camel Club interesting weren't much in evidence in this book.

The final installment, to date, of the Camel Club series and I have thoroughly enjoyed this entire series. Great storytelling, in depth characters and conspiracy theories aplenty!

In the beginning of this book, two of Oliver Stone's enemies are assassinated. The assassinations set off a manhunt of enormous proportions by some of the highest officials in government. The Camel Club must fend for itself, all the while protecting their elusive leader, Stone, as he avoids capture by the sometimes uninformed Joe Knox, the man in charge of the hunt.
