The Last Jihad, The Last Jihad 1, by Joel C. Rosenberg
- Author: Joel C. Rosenberg
Jon Bennett and Erin McCoy are two of the shrewdest strategists on Wall Street and close friends of the president of the United States. Their secret project: a billion-dollar oil deal off the coast of Tel Aviv and Gaza that could form the basis of a historic peace treaty and bring enormous wealth to every Israeli and Palestinian. But nothing has prepared Jon or Erin for the terror that lies ahead. Terrorists hijack a jet plane and fly a kamikaze mission into an American city. Israeli commandos foil a nuclear attack but find evidence that the next targets could be Washington and New York. And suddenly the United States finds itself in a war in the Middle East over terrorism and weapons of mass destruction that will forever change the course of human history.
