Why did I read this? Because I really like David Baldacci as a storyteller and am working my way through his series.
A member of the Camel Club kills a couple of people, (who strongly deserved it) and then goes underground. A member of some alphabet governmental is given the job of hunting him down. A chance encounter between strangers on a train take him to a rural mining town that is ground zero for the opioid epidemic. As he is being tracked the hunter begins to suspect there might be more to the story than he has been led to believe. As the hunt progresses the other members of the Camel Club begin to involve themselves. Each of their various talents come into play and make for an exciting story.
What is with the title of the review? The story ranges up and down the eastern seaboard of the United States, but most of it takes places in an extremely rural and poor portion of Virginia coal country.
