Helpful Score: 3
LOVED this book! Joel C. Rosenberg reminds me of Tom Clancy - but with a biblical spin. He is a political strategist and has worked for people like Benjamin Netanyahu and Steve Forbes. His knowledge of who's who adds a wonderful dimension to his writing. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!
Joel Rosenberg is an amazing writer. His work grabs you by the head and holds on tight. You find yourself thinking about this book (and the others he's written) at odd moments long after you've finished reading. The scariest thing about his stories is that they are all possible. We are living in frightening times.
Do read this book and then start at the beginning and read any and all of his work that has been published earlier. You'll become a fan, I'm sure.
Buckle up! The Last Jihad is a high-speed, heart-pounding, edge of your seat roler coaster ride into the heart of darkness...feels ripped from tomorrow's headlines...this stuff could really happen!
Rosenberg nails it..a provocative, conservative political thriller that reads like a major Hollywood blockbuster. In the spirit of Tom Clancys Sum of All Fears, Rosenbergs The Last Jihad absolutelycrackles with high energy and a chilling premise--what i the war on terror goes nuclear.
This book was an edge of your seat ride from the first page to the very last. Because I enjoyed it so much I ordered the remaining books in the series. I devoured them! It is refreshing to read such suspense and action without having to deal with swear word after swear word. I also love the way the author weaves scripture in the form of Biblical prophecy into the stories.
unabridged. 6 tapes, approx. 9 hrs. The first in his series featuring Jon Bennett. Warning: recommended by Rush Limbaugh - this takes a very conservative few on foreign affairs as of George W. Bush's presidency, and will make most liberals either laugh or cry. Otherwise a pretty good political thriller, not getting as complicated or techincal as Clancy does.

I love mysteries and novels and fiction books. I have to say that of all the books I've ever read, this has been the most exciting. I could not put the book down!

"Jon Bennett is one of the shrewdest strategists on Wall Street and a close friend of the President of the U.S. His secret project: a billion-dollar deal off the cost of Gaza, the basis for an historic peace treaty that could bring enormous wealth to every Israeli and Palestinian. But nothing prepared Jon for the terror that lies ahead..." (Portion of text on back cover)

Joel C. Rosesnberg writes fiction based on facts. The Last Jihad begins with the 9/11 disasters and kept my attention throughout the book. I have read all of his books and recommend them for their relevance to what is happening in the world today.
Jon Bennett is a Wall Street strategist and close friend of the President. His project: a billion dollar oil deal which could bring wealth to every Israeli and Palestinian. But nothing prepares him for the terror that lies ahead.
The President's motorcade is attacked, Israelis' foil a nuclear attack that leads to evidence that major US cities are next....and that's just the beginning.

"Terrorists hijack a jet plane and fly a kamikaze mission into an American city. Israeli commandos foil a nuclear attack but find evidence that the next targets could be Washington and New York."
This book leaves you absolutely breathless. Rosenberg is a terrific writer and he draws you immediately into his stories. I love his work!
I really enjoyed reading this book. It kept me on edge part of the time, wondering what was going to happen next. The characters are believable and likeable (well, the good guys are likeable). I am now into the second book of the series and looking forward to finishing them all.
Joel Rosenberg really knows how to weave a story. The only thing that would have been nice (which I do see in the reprint of the second book of the series) is a character list in the beginning. It makes it easier to remember who the characters are, especially when they have unfamiliar names from foreign languages and cultures.
