Hell's Corner, by David Baldacci

The trick to enjoying this sort of book is to suspend disbelief and just go with the flow.  Of course the super hero super spy will succeed, of course the bad guys will fail - unless there's a sequel in the works and some of them have to progress to the next book...

This novel features a continuing character of Mr. Baldacci's; Oliver Stone, also known as John Carr is our hero. He is the spy equivalent of Captain America.  As in prior novels with this character, there's an assortment of odd civilians, the "Camel Club" who are similarly equipped to do things that normal people just can't do.  And this episode adds a new colleague in a British MI6 agent Mary Chapman.

I almost feel guilty for wasting a couple of hours on this (given that I'm reading a couple of much better books at the same time), but hey, it was fun.
