Publisher's Summary

Oil prices are surging to record highs. A new dictator is rising in Iraq. China is threatening Taiwan. North Korean forces are ready to strike south. Israel is feverishly trying to complete the Third Temple....

And in the midst of a world ready to explode, American president James MacPherson's second term is ending. The battle to succeed him is heating up into the most fiercely contested presidential election in American history. Who will lead a bitterly divided country over the next four years? And just what role - if any - does the U.S. play in history's last days?

As the presidential campaign narrows into a dead heat, the Secret Service learns of a catastrophic terrorist plot to assassinate one of the candidates - but which one? Who do they want dead? And can U.S. forces stop the terrorists before millions lose their lives?

©2008 Joel C. Rosenberg; (P)2007 Brilliance Audio

    "This was an excellent end to an excellent story."

    The twist at the end really put the whole series in perspective. I enjoyed the entire storyline and the performance was well done.

    "Great Book.."

    Loved this book and Phil Gigante is one of my favorite narrators. Given the current political climate, it was somewhat scary reading.

    "another great book by mr rosenberg"

    I truly have enjoyed all of mr rosenberg's books. they are christian fiction, are pro israeli, and deal with bible prophesy. if this doesn't appeal to you, then you probably would not like. if you are curious what biblical prophesy is about, give the book a try. if ths sounds right up your "alley", you will probably enjoy. the plan of salvation is clearly given for any who are seeking to know god. anyway, I truly have enjoyed all this authors books. am ready for the next book when it comes out. thanks for letting me express my opinion.

    "So true - so scary - so anticipated"

    The fictional novel written around Biblical truth is breathtaking. I pray all who listen take heed and make their decision to accept Christ and follow Him.

    Story
    "Just completed the entire 5 book series"

    Interesting story line developement. Obviously the author is a Christian believer and the way the story evolves during the series one could suspect he became a born again follower during the writing of this series or it was his intent to shift the story to involve Christian/Jewish prophecies from the beginning . Either way a very good listen. A bit too much Stars and Stripes God Bless America flag waving? As a non American it got to be a bit much - evil can come in many forms - the one area the author does get right is that true followers of Jesus would not kill/maim or defile others for personal gain or promote death and destruction of others for personal gain. Although, he clearly is biased in his America can do no evil and paints the Middle East, Russia and other communist countries with a very old and tired rhetorical brush. That being said, I think I'll start doing some of my own theological research. Thank you.
    One last thing - would have preferred to have kept the same narrator for the entire series.
