Publisher's Summary

As he prepares to deliver the State of the Union address, the president of the United States is convinced the Islamic State is on the run, about to be crushed by American forces once and for all. But New York Times foreign correspondent J. B. Collins tells the president he's dead wrong. With the Middle East on fire, the Israeli prime minister dead, and Amman in ruins, Collins fears a catastrophic attack inside the American homeland is imminent. He argues that only an all-out manhunt to capture or kill Abu Kahlif - the leader of ISIS - can stop the attack and save American lives. But will the president listen and take decisive action before it's too late?

    I love espionage, legal, and detective thrillers but listen to most genres. Very frequent reviews. No plot spoilers! Please excuse my typos!

    Story
    "Book 3 in the J. B. Collins trilogy"

    WOW! I do not know what to say. The first two novels in this trilogy had much less of author Rosenberg's Christian theology than most of his earlier books. Without Warning is a superb suspense thriller like Third Target and First Hostage, but at its heart it is a novel about, and which celebrates, Christian theology. Some people object to such novels so they should beware.

    Protagonist J. B. Collins, an atheist, is a NY Times reporter who gets an interview with the leader of ISIS (ISIL) only to be taken captive and then released in Third Target. In First Hostage the US President is captured by ISIS and J. B. Collins in in the group that rescues him. In Without Warning ISIS goes after Collins' family in Maine killing his mother and his nephew and gravely injuring his sister-in-law and his niece. Collins' brother encourages him to read the Bible and ultimately he becomes a Christian. He sets out to find the leader of ISIS who has issued a fatwa calling for his death. I do not recall ever reading or listening to a novel with such an ending as Without Warning.

    As a suspense thriller Without Warning is an outstanding novel fully earning 5 stars. Narration by David de Vries is also superb.

    "wow"

    wow, no, WOW.
    I believe this is the best of all of Joel C Rosenberg's books, and I've listened to all of them.
    Everything Joel did was brilliant. Just when I knew where he was going, just when I knew what had really happened. . . he didn't, it didn't.
    Brilliant, and thank you Joel C Rosenberg

    Story
    "You Save The Best Till Last!"

    I have listened to all your books and once you start you can't stop till the whole book is read. No matter how late at night it takes.
    The narrator is so good. He draws you into the story and you can't leave.
    This is so current, you almost add names of courant leaders to the text.
    The intensity of the story gets into your body causing knots in your stomach as well as tears in your eyes.
    When JB finally gives his life to Jesus, you are thrilled, but when he gives his life to let the rest of his family live free, tears stream down
    your face as if he were one of your family.

    "I have liked the entire series of J B Collins Novels."

    I like the way Joel Rosenberg weaves the gospel into his novels. I would be interested in knowing how many have been saved as a result of reading his books.
    Thank You

    "Stunning completion to the trilogy!"

    This book picks up nicely from the previous one and takes so many twists and turns. It keeps you engaged and wanting to not put down (or turn it off). You just want to get back to the story. It is well written and the narration was outstanding!

    I look forward with great anticipation to each new book Joel releases. This is a masterful, frightening story of the times and conditions in which we live. And Mr. de Vries does an outstanding job bringing the written words to life. Thanks to all!

    I listen to books on my commute at 1.75 speed. I like umpiring books, corny sci-fi, religious, history, and whatever catches my eye.

    Story
    "Sometimes a great story, sometimes a CIA briefing"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I would. I enjoyed the story arc in this series. Rosenberg does a good job of incorporating current events into a story that is not so unfathomable. He also is able to tie in his faith into the story.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The twists and turns of the story is for what Rosenberg has become known. Just when you think you know where the character is going, something new pops up and an unexpected but perfectly rational choice is made.


    Have you listened to any of David de Vries’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Just like in the previous two books, he does a good job with characters and has a good cadence. Nothing distracting.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    The JB Collins Story


    Any additional comments?

    There were many times while listening where I had to sit back and wonder if people in the intelligence community really talk about this much intelligence in normal, everyday situations. Rosenberg has a lot of knowledge of terrorism, jihad, and radical Islam and he seems to be trying to tie it into the book. I'm sure it is so people will see what is ahead if nothing is done. The story sometimes suffers from long conversations of information, giving it the sense of being a cautionary tale and intelligence briefing instead of a congruent story. Once you make it through those parts though, the story is captivating.

    Lover of life and lover of books! I read/listen to a wide range (many) but my favorite non fiction are self-help and autobiographies.

    "The best for last"

    The first two books of the trilogy set the foundation for this book but this is the best of all three. It is one of those novels that are difficult to put down and if listening on a road trip, you take a longer route for more listening time.

    I didn't expect the ending and as others stated, this book has more Christian and Muslum theology in it than the other two which makes this book relevant for today.

    Highly recommended!
