The stage is set for war. Oil prices are surging to record highs. A new dictator is rising in Iraq. China is threatening Taiwan. North Korean forces appear ready to strike south. Israel is feverishly trying to complete the Third Temple. And in the midst of a world ready to explode, American president James MacPherson’s second term is ending. The battle to succeed him is heating up into the most fiercely contested presidential election in American history. Who will lead a bitterly divided country over the next four years? And just what role—if any—does the US play in history's last days?

As the presidential campaign narrows to a dead heat, the Secret Service learns of a catastrophic terrorist plot to assassinate one of the candidates—but which one? Whom do they want dead? And can US forces stop the terrorists before millions lose their lives?

From New York Times best-selling novelist Joel C. Rosenberg, this explosive political thriller is sure to provoke discussion, along with fervent hopes that this frightening vision of the future will not come true.

I love to read political thrillers. This one? Not so much...The conceptual framework of the book is not geopolitics as much as it is another tired revisiting of the fundamentalist/pentacostal "end of times" construct. Liberals will, however, like the fact that a nuclear bomb hits the Republican National Convention. But unfortunately neither Sarah Palin nor Michele Bachman were scheduled to speak at the time....
