Divine Justice

(Camel Club #4)

by

David Baldacci

 

 

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

Book Review-No-Mans-Land

No Man’s Land

(John Puller #4)

by

David Baldacci

 

No Man’s Land is the fourth in the John Puller series by David Baldacci.  John and Robert Puller’s mother disappeared without trace thirty years prior.  The boys’ three star general father is now suffering from advanced stages of dementia.  The Puller family receive a letter from a former acquaintance accusing the retired General Puller of murdering his wife all those thirty years ago.

It is up to the Puller brothers, accompanied by a female colleague to solve this mystery.  And solve it they do.

Entwined in this plot is a super strong criminal created by a clandestine research program, which operated all those years ago and is still operating.  An espionage ring selling government secrets to commercial enterprises also adds some intrigue to the plot.

Everyone who knew Jackie Puller when she was alive has nothing but praise for her.  So why did she disappear.  Was it marital problems or an extramarital affair?

I should also add that No Man’s Land was narrated by Kyf Brewer with Orlagh Cassidy providing the female character voices.  Both narrators provided excellent character voices for this book, which as I have repeatedly written, makes or breaks an audiobook.

I don’t think I have read a David Baldacci book that I have not enjoyed so my review may be biased.

However my four star rating is still below the Goodreads average from over 18,000 ratings.
