Publisher's Summary

Osama bin Laden is dead.
Saddam Hussein is buried.
Baghdad lies in ruins.

Now the eyes of the world are on Jerusalem as Jon Bennett - a Wall Street strategist turned senior White House advisor - his beautiful CIA partner Erin McCoy, and the U.S. Secretary of State arrive in the Middle East to meet with Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat.

On the table: a dramatic and potentially historic Arab-Israeli peace plan, of which Bennett is the chief architect. At the heart of the proposed treaty is the discovery of black gold deep underneath the Mediterranean - a vast and spectacular tract of oil and natural gas that could offer unprecedented riches for every Muslim, Christian, and Jew in Israel and Palestine.

But in the shadows lie men whose hearts are filled with evil - men who do not relish a post-Saddam era, men for whom the prospect of a Palestinian peace accord with Israel goes against everything for which their fathers have fought and died. Such men - and the countries that finance them - are ready to do anything necessary to slaughter those who stand in their way.

The clock is ticking. Can Bennett, McCoy, and the American president make peace before the Middle East once again erupts in war?

What the Critics Say

"The story is rich with detail, topical references, interesting characters, and logical conclusions. Reader Patrick G. Lawlor does an admirable job in keeping the action flowing." (AudioFile)

    "Just Finished and Ready To Order Third Book"

    Another page turner from Rosenberg. You feel that you are in the middle of a gripping tale from the first few pages. Part three, here I come.

    "An excellent listen"

    This book is the second in the series. Rosenberg presents a rivetting fictional account of the holy war and America's struggle to bring peace in a fast-changing, caotic world. Politics, religion, suspense and thrill are interwoben in a way that made me think and want to learn more. Maybe just a little unbelievable how much the characters go through and survive; maybe a little corny, but very good.
    I like how his mind works, and look forward to reading the next book of the series and a nonfiction book of his.

    "Great followup to the first installation"
    Would you listen to The Last Days again? Why?

    Though current events have made the events somewhat stale, this is still a very engaging 'read'. For those that follow the likes of Jack Bauer, Mitch Rapp, etc this book may interest you, though the main character is a political advisor and not an agent of a government agency. Sure he gets in the action, but it's a bit different. Good action, engaging characters - reccomended.

    "Better than Book 1"

    I really enjoyed the political aspects of everything. It really was action-filled (which felt a bit much in the beginning). Three major action scenes that Joel elongated, from my perspective at least. Beyond that, it was awesome. The performance was way better than book 1!

    "Good"

    Of course, if you're reading the series, you'll read this one. I am not a huge fan of it, but it does get very exciting at the end. I feel like the others in the series are better but gotta get through this one as part of the process.

    "Don't waste your money or credits"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    a performer who knows how to read and has a decent voice.


    What was most disappointing about Joel C. Rosenberg’s story?

    everything


    How could the performance have been better?

    having someone with voice and talent do it


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The Last Days?

    They were all indistinguishable from each other


    Any additional comments?

    I wasted a credit and several hours trying to suffer thru it.

    "Awesome entertainment"

    What a great thriller. Accurate in accounts as well as exciting to listen to. Well written and keeps moving. There are a few relaxed moments but it is necessary to maintain a level of anticipation. Great listen as well as great political and Christian dialogue and action as well. Doesn't preach but presents thought provoking dialogue and action.

    "Awesome story. Could have left out all the uses of God's name in vain."

    This was an amazing story, chocked full of detail that would have required a mountain of research. My only wish is that it had less of the inappropriate language. I understand the premise but still wish it wasn't there.
