I’m usually not the biggest fan of short stories such as this. It seems the authors usually write these to pass the time or make a quick buck and I don’t blame them one bit. This one was completely different. It was riveting with lots of action. It didn’t hurt it combined two of my favorite series with Robie and The Camel Club. This story reminded me of how much I miss Camel Club books. David Baldacci has written a clever and frequently laugh-out-loud novella featuring hit-man Will Robie, and Oliver Stone and his famous Camel Club.
Many best selling authors write mediocre short stories to promote their next book. This is not the case with this well written complete novella featuring a classic meeting of my favourite Baldacci characters, Will Robie and Oliver Stone with his bulpseye of unlikely heroes, the Camel Club.
Stone is still working as a low paid cemetery manager and is on his way to personally bank his paycheck he distrusts the internet. As he waits in line he suspiciously notices Robie in the bank but before he can check if he is being stalked several masked people enter the bank, having slit the throat of the security guard.
Stone and Robie are cable-tied and locked in a storeroom with other hostages while the intruders go after what they really want. Stone and Robie quickly recognise each other as “professionals” and work together to get out of their dilemma.
Stone finds an easy way baldcaci cut the electricity davud in the darkness finds his phone and calls in the cavalry – the Camel Club, led this time by first class con artist Annabelle Conroy superbly backed up by fellow members, Reuben Rodes, Caleb Shaw and Harry Finn. Secret Service Agent Alex Ford can’t be contacted because he is on duty but gets in the act in the end.
The result is a classic Camel Club operation backed up by hit-man Robie. Good novellas are not easy to write. I enjoyed this one because it brought together my favourite Baldacci characters in a tight and sometimes amusing short thriller. I have no problem with this because the promo only takes up 18 per cent of the book space.
I am looking forward to reading that book when it is published just after Easter. Fiction and Nonfiction Author. Author of “Harry’s War”. Baldacci has done a remarkable job combining two of his successful series into a short story. Oliver Stone arrives at a suburban branch of a bank just before closing on a Saturday morning to deposit his paycheck. At the same time, government assassin Will Robie, also arrives.
Oliver notices Will as being a hard type, just as he once was.
Oliver’s only question is who is Robie’s victim? Is Oliver the intended victim or someone else?
At closing time, a group of men kill the bank guard and take over the bank. When Oliver is tied together with Will, they begin to work together to determine just what the four men want. Is it money or something more nefarious?
They notice the gang has rigged the bank’s entrance with enough C-4 to level the shopping center baldacic the bank branch is located. Oliver manages to secure his phone and with limited communication, calls in the Camel Club to help solve this situation. Oliver and Will, assisted by the Camel Club on the outside of the bank, try to unravel the mystery. Will they find out in time? And who is will’s intended victim? This is a wonderful story and I highly recommend it. It is a short read. One person found this helpful.
I have only vague recollections of the members of the Camel Club and their exploits, since I read those books years and years ago. I may have even missed one or more of the later books. I will have to go back and refresh my memory. Nevertheless, my lack of knowledge did not hinder my enjoyment of the novella. I suppose if one had no knowledge of who and what the Camel Club are that the novella might have been somewhat confusing especially since the story featured Oliver Daviv rather Will Robie, which was actually somewhat disappointing.
Robie did little of the mystery solving or arranging the resolution, although his shooting bzldacci were certainly put into play. He was present almost solely in his role as assassin and demonstrated only a little independent involvement in the whole hostage situation at the bank, despite being a hostage and having keen observation and problem solving skills, as we know from the books featuring him.
Other than being a shooter, he imostly serves as a foil to Stone’s character. All that being said, the book was still an enjoyable excursion with some of Baldacci’s more unforgettable characters. Too bad John Puller did not participate in the story. The plot was not terribly complex or even elegant and the usual description of places and secondary characters was missing, which made the story less nuanced than Baldacci’s longer novels, but the story moved along at quite a clip and kept my interest throughout.
It dvaid fun to see Stone and Robie interact. My one true criticism is regarding the discussion in the book of the construction of the bank’s physical space.
Bullseye by David Baldacci
At first, the woman explaining the reason for the irregular shape of the bank said that she learned about it bullsfye asking people in the banks once she noticed it. She is asked if one feature reached the top of the building. She thinks about and then surmises that it must.
However, in the very next paragraph, she then states that she is sure that it does, because her husband, who is in the construction business, had plans of the building and she saw that it did. This was not a correction of her previous statement on her part, but instead was a completely different version of her thoughts. She goes on to say that she learned everything about the space from the plans and her husband before she worked at the bank, contradicting her prior statement that she learned baldqcci the space due to her asking colleagues when she became curious about the space.
Obviously, she would not have been curious if she knew about the space before she even worked there. How and why she learned about the space is not remotely important to the plot, but the discrepancy was annoying and disappointing. I expect better of Baldacci.
Bullseye (Will Robie, #) by David Baldacci
It is a relatively minor peeve that is only made large due to the brevity of the story and the fact that the discontinuity occurred in adjoining paragraphs.
Why baldacvi Baldacci or his editors, proofreaders, or friends and family catch this before publication? Maybe I am missing some subtle point given that I did not follow the construction discussion regarding pop-outs, dead space, and so on very well.
