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?

    Story
    "Imaginative Twist to the 2nd Coming of Jesus"

    The author is very creative spinning a believable scenario of the politics and economics that could lead to the end times. I enjoyed the tale, although it was wordy. I wonder if an abridged version would have been sufficient....Overall, I thoroughly enjoyed it!

    "So intense ..you can hardly keep listening!"

    The Bible talks about how terrible the tribulation will be, but listening
    To this book. Makes the harries more real.
    I realize this is just a fictional story, but the real thing could be even worse.
    Thinking of all the evil in the world today, we should thank God for His
    Great love and mercy toward America and pray that many people will
    be saved before the Rapture!

    "Twice as long to a predictable ending"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Born again Christians


    If you’ve listened to books by Joel C. Rosenberg before, how does this one compare?

    na


    How could the performance have been better?

    stop telling me who's speaking and just perform. Movement from one scene to another was not consistent.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    interesting geo-political situations...but not really plausible.

    "My least favorite of the series."
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    Ehhhh......


    Any additional comments?

    I have listened to the entire series. There were a few points in this book that I thought about shutting it off because it became a bit much. All in all the story is not bad but there are times when the author gets a bit preachy. I consider myself religious, but there are times in this book where it goes a bit overboard. I would say if you are a big fan of the Left Behind series then you would like this book.

    Story
    "Couldn't finish this book"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    I need characters that are more than one-dimensional stereotypes. They could have limited all the frenetic narrative and political speculation which stalled the action and made the characters minor players in the story. I got sick of listening to the narrator screaming about the devastation over and over and over and over. Finally turned the thing off.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Phil Gigante’s performances?

    definitely not


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    no


    Any additional comments?

    The frenetic narrative for hours gave me a headache.
    Too much time wasted on political speculation on who was the enemy. I could watch fox news if I that kind of stuff entertained me.
    After the opening, the action stalled and disintegrated into political speculation and intrigue by stereotypical villains. There was little time spent on developing the characters. the story just bounced around from one person to the next without giving enough time for me to get to know any one character.

    Story
    "Powerful Ending"
    What did you love best about Dead Heat, Political Thrillers Series #5?

    The story ends with an heroic climax. The possibility that prophecy might turn out this way is interesting.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The relationship between the hero and heroine.


    What about Phil Gigante’s performance did you like?

    The way it was done, drew me into the imagination of the story. It felt as if I was there.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    It makes me weep for the USA and for the fate of the world when alienated from God.


    Any additional comments?

    Read the entire series!
