|Stone Cold is the third installment of the ‘The Camel Club ‘ series.
The ex-CIA assassin named Stone is tasked together with the Camel Club to protect Annebelle Conroy. She conned the casino king and vicious thug Jerry Bagger out of millions.
When a deadly new opponent rips the veneer off Stone’s own mysterious past, their skills may not be enough. Bagger’s menace pales next to Harry Finn’s lethal nature.
As bodies and institutions threaten to fall, the story moves forwards toward a shattering finale that will leave the survivors of this explosive tale changed forever.
