Publisher's Summary

What would happen if millions of people around the world suddenly disappeared one day? In this fascinating apocalyptic thriller, best-selling Christian inspirational authors LaHaye and Jenkins pool their considerable talents to answer that question. Narrator Richard Ferrone's unusually deep and hypnotic voice will keep you right in the middle of this not-unimaginable end of the world nightmare. Pilot Rayford Steele is contemplating adultery with a young flight attendant when over 100 of his passengers simply vanish, leaving vacated clothes and bewildered companions. Rayford and the others left behind must deal with mass chaos on top of personal loss. Among the passengers still left is star reporter Cameron "Buck" Williams, who just got the assignment of a lifetime: find out what happened and why. Theories abound, from Christian Rapture to alien abduction. Buck suspects secret meetings between international power brokers are somehow connected. And rising political icon Nicolae Carpathia seems to be at the center of it all.

Great series!

OK - I normally read / listen to fantasy and science fiction. In fact, when I started listening to this series I was listening to Stephen King's The Dark Tower series and waiting for the Song of Susannah.

What an excellent surprise this was. I was pointed to this series by a friend and was at first skeptical, but gave it a try anyway just to see what it was like. The more I listened, the more excited I was to hear more. I am now five books into it and can't wait to get to the next one.

Even if you are not religious, you will enjoy this book and this series. It is well written, the characters are well developed, and the plot is great.

Pluses for the Christian reader - learn more about the prophecies of the end-times, jewish beliefs, and portions of scripture. Explore your relationship with Christ while hearing about what the characters are going through.

All around, a very very satisfying listen / read for me and I highly recommend it. Don't be scared off by the religious content if you are hesitant about that. And if you are attracted to the series because of the religious ties, you won't be disappointed, either.
