As he prepares to deliver the State of the Union address, the president of the United States is convinced the Islamic State is on the run, about to be crushed by American forces once and for all. But New York Times foreign correspondent J. B. Collins tells the president he’s dead wrong. With the Middle East on fire, the Israeli prime minister dead, and Amman in ruins, Collins fears a catastrophic attack inside the American homeland is imminent. He argues that only an all-out manhunt to capture or kill Abu Kahlif—the leader of ISIS—can stop the attack and save American lives. But will the president listen and take decisive action before it’s too late?

Joel Rosenberg has delivered another fast paced book that to only helps the readers uncover insight into the present Middle east conflict, but uses a compelling storyline to help us see into the future of that conflict. It is not as much about the politics of the day as it is about the great story line. It is not too heavy on Jesus to distract non-kingdom readers. The story has elements to appeal to male and female readers (listeners) alike. I personally like the spy type theme and the intrigue. My wife liked the personal relationship aspect. Neither of us was put off by the elements enjoyed by the other. Rosenberg does not get bogged down in the minutia of details to lengthen his book. If there are details, they are important. He does an EXCELLENT job of moving the story line. This book could easily have been much longer. It almost read like an abridged version in some ways because the story moved so fast. Yes I am a Rosenberg fan! I think the J. B. Collins character is compelling and intriguing because of the way Rosenberg brings him to life.
