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.

Changing the narrator was a drastic mistake!

I haven't finished the book at this point. I'm sure that the story is going to be excellent, but the narrator is just ruining it for me and my husband. We love to listen to books when we are on the road, but it is always a bad idea to change narrators in the middle or the end of a series, especially when the original narrator is really good. We are very disappointed.

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.

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 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.

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.

Who would dare give this author less than 5

Mr Rosenberg is one of my favorite authors. He weaves a realistic story without the use of profanity. Gratuitous sex and violence just to fill the pages. He starts with a story and makes you love him and familiar characters. He knows the Middle East and geopolitical issues better than most. I’ve NEVER been disappointed with any of his books. I saw where other reviewers didn’t care for the narrator I personally loved him. Waiting for another great listen

Narrator prevents from being 5 stars

Mr. Rosenberg,
Please bring bag Adam Grooper or hire Scott Brick. George Guidall has a great voice but lacks the vital voice acting ability to make your thriller, well thrilling.

Signed,
A sincere fan whose read or listened to all of your nonfiction books to date...

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.
