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)

    "Great book ... worth the listening to"

    Great book that lays out a good perspective of what could happen. OK for the naysayers it is a book from a Christian perspective, if you don't appreciate a book of this sort, don't buy and don't write negative comments. If you want a good political book with the theme of Christianity throughout, this is a book for you

    "Not so much the book but the narration"

    I found this book riveting not so much about the book but the narrator brought the book alive. Some of the book seemed out there but overall a good book.

    "The Best"

    Dick Hill is amazing! It seems to me that he could read a grocery list and make it exciting.
    I got through "The Last Jihad" in a couple of days. The second half of the book I listened to without interruption. I simply could not turn it off. If you are interested in a political/military story that is heavily slanted toward the US, you will not be disappointed.

    "Very interesting"

    I thought this book was soooo interesting. I couldn't stop listening to it. I ususally listen in the car, but I found that I had to bring my Ipod in and listen at home too. I can't wait to listen to the rest of the series. I think everyone will love this book. It is a thriller for sure. Thanks to the author (very well written).

    "Great book!"

    Dick Hill really brings the book to life. One of the best narrated books I've listened to. Lots of action but easy to follow. It's refreshing to have a good story without all the profanity.

    "This is a great book!"

    I have always been an avid reader and have now become an avid listener. This book was excellent, fast paced and keeps you wanting to hear more. I usually just listen in my car but found myself bringing my ipod inside to listen more.

    "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.)
