“The president of the United States…is missing.”

Three years before Clinton and Patterson, another New York Times bestselling author of thirteen international thrillers, Joel C. Rosenberg, posed this chilling scenario: What if the Islamic State captured the most valuable hostage in history?

Award-winning journalist J. B. Collins, reporting from the scene of a devastating attack by ISIS terrorists in Amman, Jordan, puts the entire world on high alert—the U.S. president is missing and presumed captured. With Israeli and Palestinian leaders critically injured and Jordan’s king fighting for his life, the allies are reeling and hopes for the peace process are dashed. As the U.S. government faces a constitutional crisis and Jordan battles for its very existence, Collins must do his best to keep the world informed while working to convince the FBI that his stories are not responsible for the terror attack on the Jordanian capital. And ISIS still has chemical weapons.

Struggling to clear his name, Collins works frantically with the Secret Service to locate and rescue the leader of the free world before ISIS’s threats become a catastrophic reality.

“One of the most entertaining and intriguing authors of international political thrillers in the country… His novels are un-put-downable!” —Steve Forbes, editor in chief, Forbes magazine

JB Collins is the most annoying character. Writing and story was awesome.

Rarely do I find a book I can't finish. This unfortunately was one of them. So bad. The author rambles and rambles and takes himself quite seriously. After a few hours of listening, I just couldn't continue.
