Publisher's Summary

“A taut, brilliant thriller ripped right from today’s headlines. Joel Rosenberg is masterful! The Jerusalem Assassin is an absolute home run.” - Brad Thor, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Backlash

From the New York Times, USA Today, and Publishers Weekly bestselling author!

The enemy is invisible and moving fast. The body count is rising. And time is running out.
Marcus Ryker has spent his entire career studying killers. One thing he knows for sure: a peace summit is the ultimate stage for an assassination.

President Andrew Clarke is determined to announce his historic peace plan from the Temple Mount in Jerusalem. But when senior American officials who support the plan begin violently dying, Clarke orders Ryker and his team of CIA operatives to hunt down those responsible and bring the killing spree to an end.

When the Palestinians denounce the American plan, the Saudis signal they may be ready to forge a historic treaty with Israel. Could the Saudi king’s support be the missing ingredient that will lead to peace at long last?

Ryker soon uncovers a chilling plot to kill the American president. A well-resourced international alliance is dead set against the peace plan. They will stop at nothing to strike a blow against the Americans and seize leadership of the Muslim world.

With all eyes on Jerusalem and the president in the crosshairs, it’s up to Ryker to eliminate the terrible evil that’s been set in motion. The fate of the region depends on his success. He has 48 hours.

Narrator was horrid

I am sure the book was good but it was so hard to follow the narrator that I will have to purchase and read the book. I do recommend reading but don’t do the audio.

Could not continue listening

Though a loyal fan of Rosenberg’s books...and wanting to read this one, I gave up. I could not follow the plot with this narration. This a great disappointment.

A GREAT book and AWESOME Narrator

It is brilliant to enjoy a talented narrator deliver an impressive story to life. Much obliged for the incredible story and the great storytelling. I can scarcely wait until the next one.

Listeners: try turning the speed up on narration

The narration is awful. I know the story is going to be good (hubby already listened and gives it a 5). I was ready to give up on the narration and I remembered to try adjusting the speed (I went to 1.20 X). It seems to help! If you are about to give up on the book, try this first!

Narrator ruins the story

I was looking forward to the last book in the series but I couldn’t listen to more than two chapters with this narrator. It sounds slurred and the energy and inflection are off. The voice changes for the characters don’t do much to distinguish them and certainly don’t bring them to life. I had to return the book. Maybe I’ll get a hard copy and read it the old fashioned way.

Great book ruined by a terrible narrator.

Great book but terrible....terrible narrator.
Narrator seems to have a list and as such it is a struggle to understand what he is saying at times. Also, his voice and way of speaking isnt really a fit to the story.

highly disappointing

I regret to have to give a bad review, but I have all of Joel Rosenberg's books and this Markus Ryker series has had me on the edge of my seat, I pre ordered this one and expected the usual reading of Adam Gropper but to my dismay when the book came out for some reason this George Guidall is reading, bad choice, he does not have the cadence for a high action spy novel, pausing as if to catch his breath or thought in mid sentence ect. I am sure he would be great reading Tom Sawyer or maybe the Old testament but he totally kills this story....I will not be pre ordering any in the future
So far the story line is the same exiting high speed story we all know from Rosenbergs books, but with this narrator I am now debating if I should just order the hard cover and read it instead, seriously disappointing since these books usually keep take me into the story as if I was a part of the plot.

As Usual, Brilliant

Thanks, Joel C Rosenberg, you could have ended this book differently, I'm glad you did not.
What's next?

The Jerusalem Assassin

The storyline was great! My only complaint is that I had a hard time getting use to the narrator’s voice and how he would pause to breathe during sentences. I enjoyed listening to the first two books more than this one.
