Publisher's Summary

"The president of the United States...is missing."

With these words, New York Times journalist J. B. Collins, reporting from the scene of a devastating attack by ISIS terrorists in Amman, Jordan, puts the entire world on high alert. The leaders of Israel and Palestine are critically injured, Jordan's king is fighting for his life, and the U.S. president is missing and presumed captured.

As the U.S. government faces a constitutional crisis and Jordan battles for its very existence, Collins must do his best to keep the world informed while working to convince the FBI that his stories are not responsible for the terror attack on the Jordanian capital. And ISIS still has chemical weapons....

Struggling to clear his name, Collins and the Secret Service try frantically to locate and rescue the leader of the free world before ISIS's threats become a catastrophic reality.

    "Unexpectedly good."

    I read this book on a recommendation of a friend. We both enjoy books of a similar genre and he thought I'd like this one. He was so right! This book grabs you from the first few pages and doesn't let up. It's well written and well performed. Definitely worth the time and money.

    "another excellent book"

    I have not listened to any of mr. rosenberg's books I did not like, but I believe this is the best. It so so true to life in todays news. It kept me going with so many twists and turns literally wondering if anyone would survive the horrific scenes most did not. however a very few did. it did have a good ending .... don't want to give away too many details, so you will have to listen to it yourself. I highly recommend this book in audible form to get all the nuances to the book.
