Summary

In today's terrifying new world, in which small groups of individuals with unlimited resources can wreak incredible havoc and catastrophe, the task of stopping them becomes all the more urgent and compelling. Jon Land's latest topical thriller finds Ben Kamal and Danielle Barnea facing just such a threat: an obsessed fanatic plotting nothing less than the total destruction of America. Danielle, now the head of Israel's National Police, still relies on her Palestinian-American partner, detective Ben Kamal, currently working for a private security firm in Boston.

When a raid on a terrorist hideout in Gaza yields flame-charred pages written in Arabic, she sends the document to Ben for his inspection. Shockingly, his translation reveals that the pages are actually a fatwa, a religious edict, granting permission to bring about a biblical prophecy known as the End of All Things. Layla Aziz Rahani, embattled daughter of a powerful Saudi Arabian billionaire, is the mastermind behind this insidious plot, whose apocalyptic scope and magnitude are almost beyond comprehension.

Now Danielle and Ben, working both separately and together, must track Rahani along a deadly trail of shadows and subterfuge that spans three continents-before an ancient prediction becomes a very real and irreversible disaster.

Don’t bother

This was a free book and also an old book. This story has gotten so convoluted over the books that I know the writer ran out of good ideas. Not to be outdone the latest book where you could listen to the first few chapters had a whole chapter of a computer code reading.

Lastly the narration is horrible with the exception of the two main characters. Men sound like women the women sound like men. There are high pitch nasal voices. Just horrible, I’m just a person who has to finish what they start and I highly recommend that you don’t do the same.

The most dynamic duo in thrillers

WOW!!! Just when you think the action can't get any wilder it there can't be anymore twists, you get proven wrong. Parsons is a unique addition
