After completing the five book series written by Joel Rosenberg and in addition Epicenter 2.0, this author has no equal for keeping the reader attentive to detail and continuing to read until the last word on the last page of each book. These are "white knuckle" books that keep the reader rivited from first sentence to last. It is doubtful that making each one into a movie would do them justice. Mr. Rosenberg's style and story making ability is unsurpassed. I also found the list of characters with their employment positions most helpful.
I was interested in Joel's work based on his knowledge of the Prophets in the Old and New Testaments. He has brought the Middle East news to life in a fictional work and I found his conversion to Christianity an easy step for all Reformed Jews. I am Lutheran and refer to myself as a Reformed Catholic and NOT a Protestant.
