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)
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.
The book relates so eerily to the world situation which exists now. One cannot possibly listen to the story and not identify with the emotions it generates.
Very easy to listen to
The topic of the series is one that every citizen must get concerned with. The threats to the world as we have known it must be internalized and dealt with.
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.
Yes, the performance was fantastic
Fiction, with a twist to relevancy to the time we are living in.
Draws you into the story.
Just an excellent read..
Great writing by the author.
