Stone Cold, by David Baldacci
Pretty good spy-assassin-political thriller. Members of the Camel Club, along with hottie conwoman Annabelle work together to take down varied eeeevil politicians and casino owners. Plot holes you could drive a dumptruck through, but enough explosions and interesting assassinations (Andropov! Chernenko!) to keep it lively.
So OT- as a child, I had a hamster named Andropov, and I still have my stuffed polar bear Chernenko and my stuffed walrus Gorbachev. True, this. Might have influenced my liking of the book. As I read about the political mayhem, I glanced from time to time at Cherny and Gorby.
