Publisher's Summary

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 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.

What the Critics Say

"Dick Hill performs this thriller with practiced ease, speeding up when the tension should rise and relaxing through the backstory....[D]oomsday predictions and a spectacular ending bring Rosenberg's speculations to a dramatic conclusion." (AudioFile)

    "Too real for comfort"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    The book relates so eerily to the world situation which exists now. One cannot possibly listen to the story and not identify with the emotions it generates.


    What about Dick Hill’s performance did you like?

    Very easy to listen to


    Any additional comments?

    The topic of the series is one that every citizen must get concerned with. The threats to the world as we have known it must be internalized and dealt with.

    What did you love best about The Last Jihad?

    I enjoy Bible prophecy and it was interesting to learn more of the mind set of the thinking and also the technology developments in the countries of the mideast.

    "Good."
    Any additional comments?

    I've listened to the entire series. All are very good. Since the start of the series is suppose to take place in the last 10 years or so (which was the future when it was written).. you have to suspend your knowledge a bit. But, it is a gripping series and well worth the listen. Christian series and gives us a "what if" possibility. Some parts are dry, but necessary to get the background. The reader is excellent - and brought a lot to the story. Yes, I'd recommend it - well worth the credits!

    This one will grab your interest from the beginning and hold it throughout. The characters are well developed for the most part. Narration is superb.

    "Great book!"

    Dick Hill really brings the book to life. One of the best narrated books I've listened to. Lots of action but easy to follow. It's refreshing to have a good story without all the profanity.

    "This is a great book!"

    I have always been an avid reader and have now become an avid listener. This book was excellent, fast paced and keeps you wanting to hear more. I usually just listen in my car but found myself bringing my ipod inside to listen more.

    Scott Brick puts me to sleep. Narrator's narrator be damned.

    "Great narration to a boring book!"

    It just didn't go anywhere . This book is a right wingers day dream of how the war on terrorism and Iraq should have played out a decade ago. Beyond the jarring start presented in the first few chapters, the book just doesn't build up to anything . It just ends ...

    Poor storyline, poorly developed characters and poor narration. Finished it only because I had so much time invested.
