Oil prices are surging to record highs. A new dictator is rising in Iraq. China is threatening Taiwan. North Korean forces are ready to strike south. Israel is feverishly trying to complete the Third Temple. And in the midst of a world ready to explode, American president James MacPherson’s second term is ending. The battle to succeed him is heating up into the most fiercely contested presidential election in American history.
Who will lead a bitterly divided country over the next four years? And just what role - if any - does the U.S. play in history’s last days? As the presidential campaign narrows into a dead heat, the Secret Service learns of a catastrophic terrorist plot to assassinate one of the candidates - but which one? Who do they want dead? And can U.S. forces stop the terrorists before millions lose their lives?
“…his novels seem to be ripped from the headlines - next year’s headlines.” -Washington Times
“For many adults Joel Rosenberg is the it author right now. Inside and outside the Beltway in Washington, people are snatching up copies of his almost lifelike terrorist suspense novels.” -CNN Headline News
- Not quite the quality of the other titles in this series
I have thoroughly enjoyed all the other titles in this series. This one did seem a bit preachy. You could tell in the previous two books in this series that Joel had an agenda and was pushing, but this one detracted a bit from the story. I agree with being plain about the Gospel message. Joel was exactly that in this book. I think that the nature of the story line demanded this type of treatment. It was kind of like a Left Behind type treatment of the story. But I get it. If this is the last book that one was to write about the closing history of the world, then Christ would demand that we be very forward in our presentation of the Gospel.
- Couldn't stop listening
Rosenberg ramps the velocity of this series to an all time high. The Narrator was excellent in his delivery of this book. Wow!
