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?

    "Down right scary!"

    This is the followup to the Copper Scroll, and picks up just months after the previous story ends. The plot goes beyond exciting to scary, scarier than anything else I've read in a while because it is so near to reality. Don't want to ruin it for you, but if you read the others you have to get this one. I'm interested to see if Rosenberg continues the story to it's conclusion and how he treats the biblical topics.

    "Great Story, Great audio book"

    This is the first book of Joel Rosenberg's that I have listened to, and I chose this book after hearing numerous interviews with him. What an inspiring, action packed novel, with great scriptural prophecy and political thrills. I loved this and have been recommending it to everyone I know.

    "Spellbinding Author"

    I have just discovered Joel Rosenberg's writings and find them to be spellbinding. Audible should offer all of his books.

    "Edge of your seat great book"

    Fantastic book, jumps you right into the book from the beginning and holds you right to the end. It was also easy to follow though it is book 5 in the series and I read it first. Highly recommended!!

    "Need More Joel C. Rosenburg"

    Great book and great narration. The only problem is that this is the last book in a series of books (The Last Jihad). It's worth it even if haven't read the previous books.

    "Better than Tom Clancy"

    I have truly enjoyed this work by Joel Rosenberg on several levels. First, he is a great story teller that maintains suspense and several threads going in parallel leading a a 'big event'. Second, I think his interpretation of Ezekiel has been an eye opener for me, and I find it has value. In this last book, Joel got a wee bit heavy on the preachy side, but it was consistent with the growth of the characters, and I enjoyed it.
