Summary:

Jon 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-Israeli 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 Israeli and Palestinian. But just before the treaty can be signed, Israeli 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 Israeli 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 of their stealth and savvy to save themselves - and the world - from absolute destruction.

    Get story by a man that knows about the U.S. and the Middle East. I had to remind myself that most of this really did not happen. The narrator really brought the story to life.

    This is a great book--well researched, well written, exciting throughout. It is also a great read (or listen) for a plane trip!

    This is the first book of a series of political thrillers. The others are: "The Last Days", "The Ezekiel Option", and "The Copper Scroll". I am listening to the last one now. I have loved all of these books. They are fast-paced, captivating, edge-of-your-seat novels where I could hardly wait to get to the next book. I have enjoyed them very much. Joel C. Rosenberg definitely has his finger on the pulse of events that are shaping our world today and has captured them in a very exciting way.

    This book is okay...a quick listen, action packed..nothing deep.

    Seemed a little choppy in the storyline. Possibly because this was the abridged version. Very interesting story.
