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)
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 While I think Rosenberg is a good writer, the fact that many events are out of date or ended up with very different results (ie: the Taliban has been decimated in the book, but is still very much alive in real life) takes away from the book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.
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.
Story is inly possible wh a real American president...I fear our president would rather fire on Isreal b4 he'd ever launch against an Islamic nation.
John Bennett, highly talented, successful, intuitive, and raised in Russia by a sweet babushka.
Easy, clear voice. Never tiring to listen to. He adds passion and emotion, but not overly so.
Eli Mortikai, ex-Mousad, to engage in general rambling discussion wherever he wants to travel.
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.
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"
