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)

    Really good story with fleshed out characters in a probably all too possible situation. Well narrated.

    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.

    "Not as good as the 12th Imam books."

    Not as good character development as the 12th Imam books. Story is OK but I honestly don't know if I'm going to read the rest of this series.

    "decent book- dick hill"
    Where does The Last Jihad rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    fourth or fifth


    What did you like best about this story?

    I enjoyed the story lne and the plot, its a little outdated, but it didn't keep me from being into it.


    Any additional comments?

    Dick Hill is a great Narrator except when he's speaking as the narrator. Then he sounds like a terse robot. using words quickly annunciated. When he gets into character is when he is at his best.

    Story
    "What a bore!"
    What disappointed you about The Last Jihad?

    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."


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Craig Johnson "A Serpent's Tooth."


    What three words best describe Dick Hill’s performance?

    Did the best he could. (I know, it's 5 words.)

    Story
    "This is an Amazing change of Mindset"

    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.

    "Boring and Not Entertaining!!!"

    The reader was excellent, but the story line was terrible! Very predictable and I found myself not interested by Chapter 3.

    Possibly

    No.
