In bestseller Baldacci's entertaining if overly long sequel toThe Camel Club(2005), renegade CIA agent Roger Seagraves has set himself up in the business of freelance assassination and selling our country's secrets to the highest bidder. The Camel Club, a group of four dysfunctional crime solvers headed by ex-CIA assassin Caleb Shaw, becomes involved with Seagraves through a killing at the Library of Congress, where one of the club members works. Meanwhile, an enigmatic young woman, Annabelle Conroy, is assembling a team to engineer a "long con," a $33 million scam targeting Jerry Bagger, the sleazy owner of an Atlantic City casino. This time around, Baldacci wisely tones down the wackiness of the club members, focusing instead on bringing Seagraves to justice while Annabelle works her ingenious scam. The splicing of the two plots is problematic, but Baldacci sacrifices a bit of believability to cobble together a new cast of characters destined to continue fighting the forces of evil in the next installment.(Oct.)

review by . October 22, 2010
Even from the opening pages, "The Collectors" harbours no deep, dark secrets about the identity of the villain. Roger Seagraves, top flight CIA agent has turned renegade assassin for hire and seller of top level secret information. Having recently completed a successful hit on Speaker of the House, Robert Bradley, his next job was Jonathan DeHaven, Director of Rare Books and Special Collections in the Library of Congress. Why DeHaven, a harmless antiquarian book lover? Thus are sown the …
