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 love books with significance
I recommend this to everyone
Story is riveting at first it seemed like there were just to many details but after you get use to the style the story takes off and you are hooked for the whole series.
The whole story. I couldn't get involved enough to keep the story straight. Possibly the most boring thriller ever and could barely be qualified as "inspirational fiction."

Did the best he could. (I know, it's 5 words.)
Considering that I have a reading disorder, the Audible compamy has quenched a great day of time with Audible as my greatest personal fre
This and the next book to follow in the series are truly an amazing series of action and adventure novels based in so many Countries with so much historic truths to fuel the excitement.
Believers in the Christian way of life or not, I believe this is serious mental exercise and edge of seat listening. The narration is flawless, the writing style flows with ease, the story is believable, and this book has amazing historic fact and research.
A must read/Listen for readers such as I. After over 200 books I have gone through, I was running out of great Authors and series to choose from. Stumbling onto this series with general browsing feels like a blessing.
The reader was excellent, but the story line was terrible! Very predictable and I found myself not interested by Chapter 3.
Nothing, I like Dick Hill. I think it would've been better to have had multiple narrators.
Great start to a political thriller series - though current events have made the events somewhat stale. 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.
I learn so much about the middle east from reading Rosenberg's books. He's improved with time, but I will definitely finish reading the series.
After having first read The Twelfth Imam and The Teheran Initiative (which I thought were outstanding books), I felt the The Last Jihad, both the writing and the performance, were very amateurish. I was amazed at how improved Rosenberg apparently was by The Twelfth Imam.
Yes, I would listen to Rosenberg again, but only the books written after The Twelfth Imam.
I would prefer not to listen to Dick Hill as a reader. I did not like his voice or performance.
This book was a great disappointment to me. It almost seemed like it was written by someone in high school.
Politically, I am conservative, and I was greatly disappointed in this book. I saw on someone's review that this book is just right wing propaganda. I don't think so, but I think the book is how the left perceives the right to be.
Passionate lover of Jesus Christ. I also love reading mysteries and historical books
Love this book and would certainly listen again. In fact, this was my 2nd time. I read it first - along with the entire series, and now listened to the audiobook. Love - Love - Loved it!
This is so over the top and melodramatic, I had to stop listening well before the end of the book
If he'd tried to be just a bit subtle, it would have helped.
He's the best.
