An attack on the heart of power . . . In sight of the White House . . . At a place known as . . . HELL'S CORNER. John Carr, aka Oliver Stone, once the most skilled assassin his country ever had, stands in Lafayette Park in front of the White House, perhaps for the last time. The president has personally requested him to 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. Stone's mission changes drastically before it even begins. It's the night of a state dinner honoring the British prime minister. As he watches the PM's motorcade leave the White House, a bomb detonates in the park, an apparent terrorist attack. In the chaotic aftermath, Stone takes on a new, more urgent assignment: find those responsible. British MI-6 agent Mary Chapman becomes Stone's partner in the search. But their opponents are elusive, capable, and increasingly lethal, and Stone enlists the help of the only people he knows he can trust: the Camel Club. In the shadowy worlds of politics and intelligence, nothing is really what it seems. This may be Oliver Stone and the Camel Club's last stand.
