The Last Jihad is a gripping and prescient tale from New York Times bestselling author Joel C. Rosenberg

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-Isreali 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 Isreali and Palestinian. But just before a treaty can be signed, Isreali 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 Isreali 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 their stealth and savvy to save themselves—and the world—from absolute destruction.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Though the characters in this debate come off like talking heads, the energy and scope of the dispute breathes new life into the last half of the novel and hints at greater things from the author.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “In today’s get-Hussein political climate, the novel is sure to find an audience, but some readers may not find the book as exciting as expected. While Rosenberg works a couple of genuinely surprising plot twists into his story, and his grasp of international politics and terrorism seems solid, his prose style is, at best, adequate.”

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Deanna Hansen | 2/16/2014

    " As the first book in the series, there was lots of detail. Hopefully the following books will have more action and less explanation. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dustin | 2/13/2014

    " I started with The Ezekiel Option first, so I just had to start from the beginning and get the back story about some of the characters from this first book. The end of book makes it mandatory to read the next book in the series. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 William | 2/4/2014

    " I was worried going into this book that I would not have enough background knowledge on recent developments in terrorism. The overwhelming amount of news on this current topic has caused me to draw away more than be pulled into it. Yet, from the beginning to the end I was riveted by this action packed thriller. I even enjoyed the few bits of politics that remained simple enough for even me to understand. Rosenberg was off on some of his guesses for the future after 9/11, but this doesn't drag down the full impact of the story. Over all I was struck by how exciting this book was. Definitely not the long drawn out political junk that I had originally expected. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kim Stokely | 1/12/2014

    " Is it fiction, or is t fact? This book rings so true in the world today that it's hard to know the difference. If you like political thrillers, you will LOVE this series. "

    " This book was intense and interesting, and in addition, i was glad to hear Joel speak in person. It is one of those that is hard to put down. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Elise | 10/21/2013

    " Meh. Sensational and an interesting read in a Keifer-Sutherland-24 type of way, but a little to much of the political-right-undertones for my taste. "

    " Great plot line yet some of the writing feels forced. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Brooke | 4/24/2009

    " Not really my style of book, but I have to read the 4th one for bookclub, and I'm not the type of person to just jump to the 4th book in a series without reading the first three. Oh, and I really hate cliffhanger endings. "
