Publisher's 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?

Just Finished and Ready To Order Third Book

Another page turner from Rosenberg. You feel that you are in the middle of a gripping tale from the first few pages. Part three, here I come.

An excellent listen

This book is the second in the series. Rosenberg presents a rivetting fictional account of the holy war and America's struggle to bring peace in a fast-changing, caotic world. Politics, religion, suspense and thrill are interwoben in a way that made me think and want to learn more. Maybe just a little unbelievable how much the characters go through and survive; maybe a little corny, but very good.
I like how his mind works, and look forward to reading the next book of the series and a nonfiction book of his.
