Publisher's 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.

What the Critics Say

"Dick Hill performs this thriller with practiced ease, speeding up when the tension should rise and relaxing through the backstory....[D]oomsday predictions and a spectacular ending bring Rosenberg's speculations to a dramatic conclusion." (AudioFile)

The Best

Dick Hill is amazing! It seems to me that he could read a grocery list and make it exciting.
I got through "The Last Jihad" in a couple of days. The second half of the book I listened to without interruption. I simply could not turn it off. If you are interested in a political/military story that is heavily slanted toward the US, you will not be disappointed.

Great book ... worth the listening to

Great book that lays out a good perspective of what could happen. OK for the naysayers it is a book from a Christian perspective, if you don't appreciate a book of this sort, don't buy and don't write negative comments. If you want a good political book with the theme of Christianity throughout, this is a book for you
