Nail-bitingly good: "Without Warning" by Joel C. Rosenberg


about the book...

As he prepares to deliver the State of the Union address, the president of the United States is convinced the Islamic State is on the run, about to be crushed by American forces once and for all. But New York Times foreign correspondent J. B. Collins tells the president he’s dead wrong. With the Middle East on fire, the Israeli prime minister dead, and Amman in ruins, Collins fears a catastrophic attack inside the American homeland is imminent. He argues that only an all-out manhunt to capture or kill Abu Kahlif—the leader of ISIS—can stop the attack and save American lives. But will the president listen and take decisive action before it’s too late?

my review...

The final book in the J. B. Collins series, "Without Warning", is a thrilling, well-written novel that I can only thank God is not written based on actual events. The scenes unfold with frightening realism, and the writing is such that the imagery played like a movie across my mind. The pacing is blistering face, just the way I like suspense novels to read, and so it should come as no surprise that I read this book in one sitting because I just couldn't walk away.

As much as I enjoyed this book, perhaps the most sobering part of reading it is that the events that unfold in America and in Collins life over the course of the novel seem like they really could happen. If you are like me, you won't be able to help but wonder what ISIS could be capable of in North America, and whether our governments are taking appropriate action to prevent such attacks. Now, I managed to put my pondering about this on hold and dove into the story, enjoying every minute. But I do feel called to pray for the countries of this world and for Israel in particular, for God to bring about real peace. Any novel that leads me to prayer is a good one in my book! And, if they can manage to thoroughly entertain me at the same time, then all the better!

From the riveting first chapters to the final, shocking conclusion, this is one novel that you are not going to want to put down. Grab a copy and see for yourself! I award this book 5 out of 5 stars.
