Baker & Taylor
When Iraqi terrorists wreak havoc on the world, White House advisor Jon Bennett must complete a billion-dollar oil deal--the basis for a historic Arab-Israeli peace treaty--or the world will face the threat of nuclear devastation.

McMillan Palgrave
Jon Bennett is a top Wall Street strategist turned senior White House advisor. But nothing has prepared him for the terror that he will face. Saddam Hussein dispatches his top hit men to assassinate the President of the United States. Iraqi terrorists spread carnage throughout London, Paris, and Riyadh . . . and the Butcher of Baghdad has a nuclear ace in his hand that he has not yet played.

Only a solid Arab-Isreali coalition against Iraq can keep the U.S.--and other Western nations--from certain devastation. And only Bennett and his beautiful partner, Erin McCoy, can make that happen. Their secret project--a billion-dollar oil deal off the coast of Gaza--could be the basis for an historic peace treaty and enormous wealth for every Isreali and Palestinian. But just before a treaty can be signed, Isreali commandos foil an Iraqi Scud missile launch, recovering a nuclear warhead and evidence that the next attack will level Washington, New York and Tel Aviv.

Now, the Isreali Prime Minister gives the American President an ultimatum: Melt down Baghdad within one hour . . . or Israel will do it herself. From Jerusalem, Bennett and McCoy must summon all their stealth and savvy to save themselves--and the world--from absolute destruction.

If you like nonstop action, don't read this book. Just kidding!! This is one of the most intense books I've read. Tension is present from the first pages, and only becomes greater. Not only is The Last Jihad suspenseful, it seems as though it could be from tomorrow's headlines in its use of very possible situations. Joel Rosenberg is amazing!

Such a great book, hard to put down. Sad to see great reads like this dwindle down to just one or two copies at the library.

This book did not capture my interest although the opening chapters promised a good read. A good deal of the book deals with strategizing among American ruling politicians about how to handle an emerging situation in the Middle East...all talk no action here. Finally at the end of the book some action occurs, but the outcome is confusing as it is left hanging. Many characters and code names are introduced in this story. Therefore, picking this book up to read in snatches may be problematic.

(1st in a 5 book series) a political thriller; Jon
Bennett, Wall Street Strategist and good friend and former co-worker of the President of the United States in the year 2011 is embarking on a deal of a lifetime to bring the people of the Holy Land into the oil deal of the century. President MacPherson, a born again Christian, has loved and groomed Bennett for several years and now it?s time to see if he?s completely trustworthy.
(Rosenberg?s a Messanic Jew. I?ve heard him speak twice. He has an amazing story to tell of how he came to be an author!)
