"Buckle up! The Last Jihad is a high speed, heart-pounding, edge-of-your-seat roller coaster ride into the heart of darkness . . . just when you think you know where you're going, along comes a twist that you never saw coming . . . scariest of all, Rosenberg's post-9/11 scenario-a nuclear showdown between the US, Israel, and Iraq-feels ripped from tomorrow's headlines . . . this stuff could really happen!"--Sean Hannity, host of the nationally syndicated, Sean Hannity Radio Show and Fox News Channel's Hannity & Colmes
When Iraqi terrorists wreak havoc on the world, White House advisor Jon Bennett must complete a billion-dollar oil deal--the basis for a historic Arab-Israeli peace treaty--or the world will face the threat of nuclear devastation. -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine vergriffene oder nicht verfügbare Ausgabe dieses Titels.Alle Produktbeschreibungen
Don't waste your money on this book. Read Brad Thor instead.

Leaving this aside, the book was a fine read as long as one could suspend knowledge of oil exploration and developments, not to mention some knowledge of the dynamics of the Middle East. Suffice it to say, that the book ends with an atomic bomb going off, and thus leading into the next volume of the series. And so, the book moves from the international thriller into the realm of alternate world fantasy. I am not sure if I will buy the next volume, but this is certainly a good book for a rainy day and many readers will no doubt enjoy it. A rating of 3.5 would be appropriate, but it's not an option here.
1. The characters come fast and furious, with so little character development, that quite frankly, I was confused throughout the entire book. There are so many characters introduced in the first half of the book that I really did not know who the main characters were until well into the book.
2. Author Rosenberg seems as though he is trying to impress the reader with his knowledge of governmental processes, weapons, etc. There is so much useless information given, I found it frustrating and distracting.
3. Rosenberg gives far too much distracting detail on what color nail polish someone is wearing, how many cubes of sugar used in a person's coffee, the firing sequence for a surface to air missile, etc. It is non-stop and aggravating. It truly distracts from the narrative of the story-line.
4. Rosenberg switches from scene to scene far too frequently, again confusing the reader.
Granted, Mr. Rosenberg is an authority on Middle East politics, but his attempt at fictionalizing Iraq's grand assault on the world's powers flounders in trivial and inconsequential minutiae. Since I purchased the entire series, I am hoping that the next book will be less detail and more story.
At best, I give this volume ONE star for confusing the reader with ridiculous detail, and not advancing the narrative story at a satisfactory pace. This book needs a Reader's Digest condensation, and then instead of 300 pages, the resulting 150 pages might be more coherent and interesting.
Sorry Mr. Rosenberg. I love you but dislike your book.
He uses war as a medium to show globally we are all connected and individually affected by actions of those driven by hatred. More action and less elaboration of food and furnishings would have increased my rating of this culinary designer foot fault. Maybe the sequel will offer up more action, since it follows the release of nukes or maybe we'll just enjoy more snacks.
