The Last Jihad is a gripping and prescient tale from New York Times bestselling author Joel C. RosenbergJon 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.… (més)

I believe this is the third of Rosenberg's fiction books. A bit dated now (first released in 2002) but still enjoyable as an early effort. The finish certainly comes with a dose of adrenaline. Rosenberg writes geopolitical ficton based on a Christian world view of current/future world events, which is subtly presented through characters of faith who depend upon God's wisdom and mercy. Character development is good but not great in this book, but it is also the first in a series. It was strong enough that I will read the next. He is out of his element when he gets into military operations and tech, but there isn't enough of that to spoil the story, just enough to make things happen.

Overall I give this one a 3.5. His later Twelfth Imam series is stronger so there is hope for this one as it develops. ( )

Non-stop action. One surprising plot twist and an interesting plot in general. Recommended. ( )

Saddam is still in power and tries to nuke Israel and have the President assassinated. Obviously dated[pre-invasion], but a cool look at “what could have been”... ( )

Jon Bennett is a top Wall Street strategist who later becomes a White House adviser at the worst possible moment. Someone is trying to kill the President . Their first attempt was to bomb his motorcade. Bennett is called in to help close a major oil deal that will help with an Arab-Isreali coalition against Iraq. With his operative, Erin McCoy at his side, Bennett must make this deal in order to keep peace in the Middle east. Rosenberg knows his stuff with this political thriller. It is a page turner and for someone that doesn't have a political know how, it is still a great read. Highly enjoyed it and plan on read the rest in the series. ( )
