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?

I'm not sure how anyone who knew anything about Joel missed the this is a Christian Book Series.
This is book 5 in the "Jon Bennett" series and is it's final book.
Series order: The Last Jihad, The Last Days, The Ezekiel Option, The Copper Scroll, Dead Heat.
Come on Audible, get them all!
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.
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.
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!!
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.
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.
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.
