The Last Jihad (Political Thrillers, Bk 1) (Audio CD) (Unabridged)
The Last Jihad - Political Thrillers, Bk 1 - Audio CD - Unabridged Author:Joel C. Rosenberg, Dick Hill (Narrator) Jon Bennett is a top Wall Street strategist turned senior White House advisor. But nothing has prepared him for the terror that he will face. Saddam Hussein dispatches his top hit men to assassinate the President of the United States. Iraqi terrorists spread carnage throughout London, Paris, and Riyadh...and the Butcher of Baghdad has a nuclear ... more »ace in his hand that he has not yet played.
Only a solid Arab-Israeli coalition against Iraq can keep the U.S. and other Western nations from
certain devastation. And only Bennett and his beautiful partner, Erin McCoy, can make that happen. Their secret project - a billion dollar oil deal off the coast of Gaza - could be the basis for an historic peace treaty and enormous wealth for every Israeli and Palestinian.
But just before the treaty can be signed, Israeli commandos foil an Iraqi scud missile launch, recovering a nuclear warhead and evidence that the next attack will level Washington, New York, and Tel Aviv.
Now, the Israeli prime minister gives the American President an ultimatum: melt down Baghdad within one hour...or Israel will do it herself.
From Jerusalem, Bennett and McCoy must summon all of their stealth and savvy to save themselves - and the world - from absolute destruction.

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.

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!
