9780765309280: The Last Days (Political Thrillers Series #2)

Osama bin Laden is dead. Saddam Hussein is buried. Baghdad lies in ruins.

Now the eyes of the world are on Jerusalem as Jon Bennett--a Wall Street strategist turned senior White House advisor--his beautiful CIA partner Erin McCoy and the U.S. Secretary of State arrive in the Middle East to meet with Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat.

On the table: a dramatic and potentially historic Arab-Israeli peace plan, of which Bennett is the chief architect. At the heart of the proposed treaty is the discovery of black gold deep underneath the Mediterranean-a vast and spectacular tract of oil and natural gas that could offer unprecedented riches for every Muslim, Christian, and Jew in Israel and Palestine.

With the international media closely tracking the story, the American message is as daring as it is direct: Both sides must put behind them centuries of bitter, violent hostilities to sign a peace treaty. Both sides must truly cooperate on drilling, pumping, refining, and shipping the newly found petroleum. Both sides must work together to develop a dynamic, new, integrated economy to take advantage of the stunning opportunity. Then--and only then--the United States will help underwrite the billions of dollars of venture capital needed to turn the dream into reality.

But in the shadows lie men whose hearts are filled with evil--men who do not relish a post-Saddam era, men for whom the prospect of a Palestinian peace accord with Israel goes against everything for which their fathers have fought and died. Such men--and the countries that finance them--are ready to do anything necessary to slaughter those who stand in their way. The clock is ticking. Can Bennett, McCoy, and the American President make peace before the Middle East once again erupts in war?

From the Inside Flap:

Praise for Joel C. Rosenberg and The Last Jihad

"Rosenberg nails it-a provocative, conservative political thriller that reads like a major Hollywood blockbuster. In the spirit of Tom Clancy's Sum of All Fears, Rosenberg's The Last Jihad absolutely crackles with high energy and a chilling premise-what if the war on terror goes nuclear?"
-Rush Limbaugh, host of the nationally syndicated Rush Limbaugh Radio Show

"Buckle up! The Last Jihad is a high-speed, heart-pounding, edge-of-your-seat-roller coaster ride into the heart of darkness. . . . Feels ripped from tomorrow's headlines . . . This stuff could really happen!"
-Sean Hannity, host of the nationally syndicated Sean Hannity Radio Show and Fox and News Channel's Hannity and Colmes

"What a timely tale. Rosenberg has written, a la Clancy, one of those rare novels that is riveting to read because it seems too real. A tingling triumph."
-Steve Forbes

"A wild rocketing read, The Last Jihad is Tom Clancy writ large."
-Vince Flynn, New York Times bestselling author of Separation of Power

"Fast paced . . . action-packed . . . The Last Jihad is a must-read!"
-Lt. Col. Oliver North

"A terrific new novel . . . excellent . . . highly prescient, very real, and very informed!"
-G. Gordon Liddy

"Clancyesque . . . prescient . . . a gripping, page-turning novel."
-National Review

From the Back Cover:

The eerily prophetic New York Times best seller that predicted the last days of Yasser Arafat and Israel’s stunning withdrawal from Gaza . . .but was written before any of it happened.

Osama bin Laden is dead. Saddam’s regime is buried. Baghdad lies in ruins. Now the eyes of the world are on Jon Bennett and Erin McCoy, two senior White House advisors, as they arrive in the Middle East to offer a historic Arab-Israeli peace plan and the American president’s new vision of freedom and democracy.

But in the shadows lie men whose hearts are filled with evil―men for whom the prospects of peace go against everything they believe. And soon, one terrifying scheme after another begins to unfold:

  • An Iranian plot to send suicide bombers into the U.S.
  • A terrorist plot to assassinate the prime minister of Israel
  • A Jewish plot to blow up the Dome of the Rock
As Jon and Erin face a battle for control of Jerusalem, a battle for control of the Holy Land, and an Iraqi plan to rebuild ancient Babylon, they can’t help but wonder: Are such signs evidence they are living in the last days before the return of Christ?
