Joel C. Rosenberg
January 6, 2015
2016 Christian Book Award finalist (Fiction category) When New York Times foreign correspondent J. B. Collins hears rumors that an al-Qaeda splinter cell—ISIS—has captured a cache of chemical weapons inside Syria, he knows this is a story he must pursue at all costs. Does the commander of the jihadist faction really have weapons of mass destruction? If so, who is the intended target? The U.S.? Israel? Or someone else? With tensions already high, the impending visit of the American president to the region could prove to be the spark that sets off an explosion of horrendous proportions. Knowing that terrorist forces are already trying to bring down two Arab governments in the region—Iraq and Syria—can Collins uncover the truth before it’s too late? Or will the terrorists succeed in setting their sights on the third target and achieving genocide?
The terrorist Islamic State—ISIS—has attacked two governments, brutally killed opponents, and now set its sights on a third target. But who or what? Hearing rumors that ISIS harbors chemical weapons, correspondent J.B. Collins and Mossad agent Yael Katzir work to alert the world. Can they expose the danger before ISIS unleashes its apocalyptic vision? 350 pages, hardcover from Tyndale
