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?

"The book is better written and more complex than Left Behind, to which it will inevitably be compared." (Publishers Weekly)
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.
disappointment... why push religion
i wish it had a better storyline.
this book did not meet the expectation
I do enjoy the stories once I get pulled in after the first quarter of the book. I'm fine with the Christian perspective, but I think there is just too much "telling" and not enough "showing". Not a whole lot of nuance in the writing. Mr. Rosenberg should give his readers a little more credit.
I like Joel's works but they are becoming formulaic. Don't get me wrong, I love the destruction of bad guys.
2pitsa is Russian for crazy
The audio book is more convenient and easy to listen to while I do other things. Reading reminds me of Law School and resembles work.
The launch of the Russian ICBM signaled game on.
Easy to listen to voice, clear, distinct. Brings color and interest to the story by adding emotion and stress.
Once again the US wimps out in the face of Russian cleverness, strategy, and aggression.
Life is a journey, enjoy it......because one day it will all end.
About a seven.
Yes. This book was very well done in a kept you engaged quite a bit.
This was quite a good book with a lot of action built in. I would recommend this book as long as you like Rosenbergs other works such as the 12th Imam. If you do not like religion in any book that you read I would take a pass on this if I were you.
