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.

"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)
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.
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!
Great dual... Rosenberg and Hill! This story was engaging and fast paced, leaves you wanting to download the sequel without a doubt.
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.
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
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"
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.
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.
I had purchased another of
Joel Rosenberg's and loved it, and was excited to purchase this one, so when I began to listen and heard all the cursing, ( Hell and Damn repeatedly) I was shocked and disgusted that a "Christian" author would stoop to that kind of language in his book, and it ruined a lot of the story. I had young children around and had to cringe when without warning the curses would roll! I'm hesitant to buy anymore of these books :(
Happily married mother of three. Avid reader. Love Audible!
If you like the espionage genre, I highly recommend this book. Not only was the story expertly written, but Dick Hill did a superb job performing it. He didn't just read it, he made it come alive. He had a lot of characters to read, and did so beautifully. The story was so factually accurate and completely plausible that it gave me chills. Everything about this book was great, except that it didn't go on forever! Happy reading!
