Publisher's Summary

The first page of Joel C. Rosenberg's first thriller, The Last Jihad, put listeners inside the cockpit of a hijacked jet, coming in on a kamikaze attack into an American city...but it was written nine months before September 11, 2001. As Jihad unfolds, an American president finds himself in a war with Saddam Hussein over terrorism and weapons of mass destruction...but it was published five months before the actual war with Iraq began.

Rosenberg's second novel, The Last Days, opens with the death of Yasser Arafat and an American president pressing for peace in the Middle East...but it was published 13 months before the actual death of Yasser Arafat.

Now comes The Ezekiel Option, an explosive new political thriller that literally feels ripped from tomorrow's headlines. With Saddam Hussein and Yasser Arafat out of the way, a dazzling era of security and prosperity seems to have come to the Middle East. With the help of an American president trying to spread freedom and democracy, the Israelis and the Palestinians have signed a historic peace agreement. Violence is down. Their economies are booming.

But a new evil looms on the horizon. A dictator is rising in Russia. Iran is feverishly building nuclear weapons. A new Axis of Evil is emerging, led by Moscow and Tehran. And Jon Bennett and Erin McCoy - two senior White House advisors - find themselves facing the most chilling question of their lives: Is the world rushing to the brink of an apocalypse prophesied more than 2,500 years ago?

What the Critics Say

"The book is better written and more complex than Left Behind, to which it will inevitably be compared." (Publishers Weekly)

    "Great Series!"

    I have now listened to the entire series. I really liked the stories, and was amazed at how well he called some of the happenings in his book in parallel with what is happening right now with the middle east and our economy. I have been recommending this series to all of my friends and family. It is less preachy than the left behind series, and i appreciated all of his information he included in his story about what part of the Bible he was using as a basis for his fictional story.

    "Exciting From Start to Finish"

    This is an excellent series, especially if the prominent role of Biblical prophecy doesn't offend you. This book was as good as any in the series.

    "Narrator rushed the book"

    At times during a pivitol point in the book the narrator rushed the book almost to where you couldn't undstand what he was saying.

    The plot held my attention.

    "excellent book"

    kept me rivoted the entire way through...seemed like of what's happening in today's world....although it is obvious it is a work of fiction. the only draw back is the incorrect prouncian of prophecy. bot the book was so good I chose to overlook it.
