Unabridged Audiobook

Summary:

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. 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?

    I love Rosenberg's real political, religious, financial, and military analysis that ads an prophetic sense of the real possibility to this book. I think his analysis that he ads along with characters that you love cause me to not want to put these books down. I just wish he would bring more conclusion to each book so you feel some sort of accomplishment when finishing... Because this is part of a series you feel like you must keep going to the next book. But I always do... So well done Mr Rosenberg

    The premise of the book (a different timeline of world events starting around 2007) at first sounded interesting. I forced myself through disc 1, the narrator is horrible. He needs to learn that sentence ending with a period shouldn't sound like a question. Started disc 2, continued with narration frustration and confusion over book characters, are they fictional or are they real Washington people. I don't know and don't care. Boxed up this selection after 90 minutes and returned the CDs.
