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)

    Any additional comments?

    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.

    "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.)

    "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.

    "Felt like I'd read it before..."
    Would you try another book from Joel C. Rosenberg and/or Dick Hill?

    Possibly


    Has The Last Jihad turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No.


    What aspect of Dick Hill’s performance would you have changed?

    Nothing, I like Dick Hill. I think it would've been better to have had multiple narrators.


    Did The Last Jihad inspire you to do anything?

    No

    "Great start to a series"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    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.

    "Great Author"

    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.

    "Disappointed After First Reading Twelfth Imam"
    What disappointed you about The Last Jihad?

    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.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Joel C. Rosenberg again?

    Yes, I would listen to Rosenberg again, but only the books written after The Twelfth Imam.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Dick Hill’s performances?

    I would prefer not to listen to Dick Hill as a reader. I did not like his voice or performance.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    This book was a great disappointment to me. It almost seemed like it was written by someone in high school.


    Any additional comments?

    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.

    "The Last Jihad"
    Would you listen to The Last Jihad again? Why?

    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!

    "Even Dick Hill can't save this one"
    What disappointed you about The Last Jihad?

    This is so over the top and melodramatic, I had to stop listening well before the end of the book


    What could Joel C. Rosenberg have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    If he'd tried to be just a bit subtle, it would have helped.


    What about Dick Hill’s performance did you like?

    He's the best.
