On My Nightstand - The Last Jihad by Joel Rosenberg

Hang onto your hats, folks. This book will take you for a ride you won't forget. Intrigue, spies, double-agents, and helicopters blowing up keep the action going non-stop. The anguish of leaders trying to anticipate the enemy's next move and making decisions affecting millions of people is palpable.

The characterization is rich, deep, and varied. A touch of romance lightens the mood as people somehow function in the midst of a chaotic world.

Almost as fascinating as the book is the story of how it was written. Mr. Rosenberg was penning his chapters as planes slammed into the World Trade Center and the Pentagon.

Yes, there is violence and ugliness in this book, but it also contains redemption, courage, and justice. Joel Rosenberg's other books are near the top of my to-be-read list.

Hi Sarah -

Amazon has a Wish List feature that can be made public. Mine is private, but maybe I should change it.

Blessings,
