David Baldacci has been putting in the best seller book series on Amazon since 1996, treating readers to some of the greatest thriller books to read of all time. In fact, he’s been writing since he was a kid when his mother gave him a notebook. He’s published over 37 books in more than 45 languages and 80 countries. And to add icing to the cake, David is a major philanthropist, supporting family and adult literacy along with his wife.
In respect and admiration over his achievements, we here at Empire Fiction decided to pay homage to this amazing writer by doing an Amazon book review of five of his bestselling book series. For each series we’ll be reviewing the first release, just to avoid spilling beans on any spoilers on proceeding releases.
Up at number five, we have a conspiracy theory story series, that revolves around the United States government. The Camel Club is a bloodhound for corruption, hellbent on exposing the malignant lies and corruption at the highest ranks of government. And when an intelligence analyst meets a mysterious demise, The Camel Club smells a rotten egg from miles away. The government writes it off as a suicide, but there’s much more than they’re letting on.
In need of help from the inside, the Club enlists the help of Agent Alex Ford, a coveted Secret Service Agent. Together, they shed light on the biggest conspiracy brewing right inside the shiny corridor walls of the White House. And on tripping on the truth, Ford discovers that his worst fears will soon become a daunting reality.
Next up is another action-packed thriller series, centered around Master Assassin Will Robin. He’s the US government’s go-to man when the trigger needs to be pulled with the utmost discretion. He’s like a ghost in the wind, and he’s never missed his mark before. A true master of his craft. And, most important for the government, he never asks questions. He’s the perfect lap dog.
But when he is assigned to kill an innocent government employee, doubts begin to cloud his judgment. And just when he’s about to pull the trigger, his conscience gets the better of him. He can’t do it. But the tables rapidly turn on him. Will finds himself running for his own life from the very trusted hand that once fed him. But what is it about that employee that unleashed this raging hell upon him? Will has to find out before it’s too late for himself and everyone he loves.
Just a split second. That’s all it took to drive Sean King's career to the gutter and put the presidential candidate, Clyde Ritter, in a coffin.

At number two on this count down is a story about a broken detective chasing after the distant strings of justice. Amos can never erase the gut-wrenching memory of seeing his wife and daughter’s bodies lying lifeless on the floor. He may have succeeded in keeping his mind intact, but he did lose his detective job at the precinct. And along with that, his house and his last few ounces of self-respect.
Eighteen years later, news spread of a killer on the rampage, killing 13 teenagers at a local school. Amos gets a call from his former colleagues. They need his special skills to sniff out the murderer. But a connection is drawn between these killings and those of his wife and daughter. Amos now has no choice but to put on his game face. The memories of his wife and daughter depend on it!
Coming in at first-place, is a Baldacci bestseller series. Ghosts haunt FBI Special Atlee Pine’s past. Thirty years ago, her twin sister was abducted from their room. She was never found, and thirty years later, the trail has long gone cold. The prime suspect in the case was a notorious serial killer, Daniel James Tor. Locked up in a maximum-security prison, Daniel never bothered to confess.
Fast forward to the future, Special Agent Atlee has made it into the FBI. Her goal is simple – to put away as many scumbags like Daniel as she possibly can. All the while, she has one eye on her ultimate agenda – to seek justice for her sister. And maybe even find her.
