(Camel Club #4)
Divine Justice by David Baldacci is another in the Oliver Stone/John Carr series. Divine, a town in the United States of America in which Oliver Stone finds himself, after stepping in to end a three against one brawl.
Divine is a very small town but appears to be prospering because locals are employed at a nearby super maximum security prison and a coal mine. However….are these industries the only source of income?
Shortly after arriving in town Stone hears of some unexpected deaths in the town. And then physical violence and bodies seem to follow Oliver around. This body count and violence is only from the Divine bad guys. The government has its own bad guys who think nothing of adding to these statistics.
The only negative I find with series is that the hero is almost super human and no matter the odds barely gets a hand laid on him during a brawl. It would slow the story if we had to wait for him to heal, wouldn’t it?
As with other David Baldacci novels this one was well paced at no time did I feel the story line was slowing. However, while reading Divine Justice, I was also listening to another book which would make a glacier appear to be breaking the sound barrier.
I enjoy this genre and David Baldacci’s novels
