"In this fourth of the Camel Club series, two bullets silence Oliver Stone's foes. Those 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." (From the CD container)
There is nothing like a good dose of thriller "man lit" to empty the brain of deep thoughts endlessly swirling from an overdose of thinking books. I forget how fun it is to have nothing to "get" and just go with the flow. And the bullets. And the explosions. And the harrowing escapes from death. And the awesome climactic revenge scenes that I always feel a little guilty about loving. ("But it's not right to beat people senseless and shoot them in the head." "But he soooo deserved it!" "Still. . .")
The Camel Club is a wonderful series, and Divine Justice is a great addition. It started out a little silly, but once Stone got mired in the conundrum that is the town of Divine, I was in. I couldn't quit listening. Just to top it off, this is the second time this series has made me cry. Who'd have thought it? Man lit making me cry. Strange.

Beginning December 19, 2009, Books 'N Border Collies will be posting but only intermittently while I pursue personal goals. I plan to share some reading I'm doing, but there will be no reviews. I will, however, be sharing my exploration of vegetarian cooking and the cookbooks and websites I use to educate myself. I hope you enjoy it!
