Most fiction in this setting tends to follow the biblical book of Revelation so closely as to make it predictable, or it follows some convoluted idea of a quasi-spiritual new age. Both idea's make for cliche' reading at this point. Jacob's Trouble instead focuses on the life of a government operative, Jacob Zen, in his quest to make sense of the changing political scene around him and recover the life he once knew. The scenes buzz back and forth between past and present, taking you deep into the thoughts of Jacob as he agonizes over his lost girlfriend Karen. His determination to get her back and expose the truth leads him even deeper into danger and the workings of the new world order. This is definitly one of the most character driven books I've read in quite awhile. Although told in third person, you feel as if you're actually seeing a new, terrible world through the eyes of Jacob Zen. The author does an excellent job of casting Jacob's woes upon the reader, pulling you into his plight and searching for solutions.
The plot becomes increasingly deeper and more twisted as the book continues on, so if you're a casual reader- hang on! It's worth the ride.
I highly recommend this one for anyone into Clancy's D.C. novels, or King's futuristic horror (i.e. The Stand). If you're a LaHaye/Jenkins fan- you ain't seen nothin' yet.
