When New York Times foreign correspondent J. B. Collins hears rumors that an al-Qaeda splinter cell has captured a cache of chemical weapons inside Syria, he knows this is a story he must pursue at all costs. Does the commander of the jihadist faction really have the weapons? If so, who is the intended target? The U.S.? Israel? Or could it be Jordan?
With tensions already high, the impending visit of the American president to the region could prove to be the spark that sets off an explosion of horrendous proportions. Knowing that terrorist forces have already toppled two regimes in the region, can Collins uncover the truth before it's too late? Or will the terrorists succeed in setting their sights on the third and final target?

Well written, very current, biblical prophecy expert, subtle promotion of theology (not intense or rammy), educational and accurate, well rounded story, gets you thinking about how current events relate to the Bibles predictions for the Middle East and the world, great fiction story as well.
Great realism, culturally diverse heroes, flawed characters portrayed well, surreal plot- Argh: book ending with a to-be-continued cliffhanger!!!
Plenty of action and true to current situation
JB, the main character although at times I wanted to slap him with the attitude that it is all about the story
Would have preferred a different narrator, just didn't impress me, just OK
Hate when a book is continued without giving you that info upfront. Also who knows how long the next book will be available. Poor planning. Very disappointing, I do not like being left on a cliff.
Current topic, gripping plot, inspirational, exciting, and food for thought!!!
Not my favorite narrator, but ok. Hoping for another book soon.
Always enjoy a well-written word picture.
Relevant, exciting and well written. Obviously the only question remaining is when does the next book come out?
This book is so current about the Middle East it is difficult to discern the international news from the Third Target story line.
The visual imagery setting up the final scenes of this story in the country of Jordan. While possible in the story what is really wild, is this could also happen in real life.
If this were a film I would entitle it The Growing Epicenter Impact.
Could not put it down. Listened to it again and again! Gave the hard back book to my boss, who introduced me to Joel's books years ago. Definitely thought provoking and well researched.
This is an excellent book. The narrator made it come alive. I finished it in 3 days and will listen to it again so I can pick up on things I may have missed. Great story.
I am a fan of Joel Rosenberg - but what is he thinking? Usually the main plot resolves somewhat by the end of the book. It's fun, however to get a tease of the next one. This book ends in mid-air.
