In the shadowy worlds of politics and intelligence, there is no one you can really trust. And Hell's Corner truly lives up to its name. This may well be Oliver Stone's and the Camel Club's last stand from the Number One international bestselling author.
An attack on the heart of power ...In sight of the White House ...At a place known as ...HELL'S CORNER Oliver Stone once the country's most skilled assassin stands in front of the White House, perhaps for the last time. The president has personally requested that Stone serve his country again on a high-risk, covert mission. Though he's fought for decades to leave his past career behind, Stone has no choice but to say yes. But Stone's mission changes drastically before it even begins. It's the night of a state dinner honouring the British prime minister. As he watches the prime minister's motorcade leave the White House, a bomb is detonated in an apparent terrorist attack against both leaders. It's in the chaotic aftermath that Stone takes on a new, more urgent assignment: find those responsible for the bombing. Stone's opponents are elusive, capable, and increasingly lethal. Worst of all, it seems that the park bombing may just have been the opening salvo in their plan. With nowhere else to turn, Stone enlists the help of the only people he knows he can trust: the Camel Club. Yet that may be a big mistake.
