Osama bin Laden is dead. Saddam Hussein is buried. Baghdad lies
Now the eyes of the world are on Jerusalem as Jon Bennett - a Wall
Street strategist turned senior White House advisor - his 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.
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.
So begins The Last Days, the sequel to Joel Rosenberg's previous
bestseller, The Last Jihad. Drawing upon his work with influential
world leaders and firsthand involvement in international political
issues, he lays out a provocative scenario of a post-Saddam era. A
skillfully scripted cat and mouse game of daring plans and
political intrigue, Rosenberg delves deeply into the psyches of men
who will stop at nothing to win.
