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)

    "A Good Listen In Spite of Being Out Dated"

    Dick Hill's performance is great. While I think Rosenberg is a good writer, the fact that many events are out of date or ended up with very different results (ie: the Taliban has been decimated in the book, but is still very much alive in real life) takes away from the book for the 2012 listener. On the other hand, it makes me curious about how Rosenberg will deal with those issues later in the series.

    "Spellbound"
    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!

    Story
    "Saddam Hussein meets a fictional alternative end."
    Who was your favorite character and why?

    John Bennett, highly talented, successful, intuitive, and raised in Russia by a sweet babushka.


    What about Dick Hill’s performance did you like?

    Easy, clear voice. Never tiring to listen to. He adds passion and emotion, but not overly so.


    If you could take any character from The Last Jihad out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    Eli Mortikai, ex-Mousad, to engage in general rambling discussion wherever he wants to travel.

    "I was surprised"
    What did you love best about The Last Jihad?

    I had never read anything from Joel Rosenberg, and didn't know what to expect, but I got the book during one of Audible's specials. I was pleasantly surprised. The plot was good, the narrator was excellent and over all I really enjoyed it. In fact I'm now hooked and just downloaded the 2nd in the series.

    Story
    "probably better if you are a conservative"

    within the first 5 minutes, it talks about:
    * how hard it'd be to fill GWB's shoes b/c of how effective the long war on terror was
    * how great it'd be to get tax rates down to 10%
    * how bin laden was found dead
    * how 'murican & british forces killed "evil terrorists" without any casualties
    * reagan like president
    * homeland security reestablished
    etc

    i probably should have known, but i thought i'd try it b/c it was on sale. not worth the 1/2 credit if you are at all liberal. and this is nothing like the show "homeland"
