Rosenberg’s fast-paced plot paired with his extensive knowledge of the Middle East practically guarantees sleep loss for the reader of this can’t-put-down novel. (World Magazine)
From the Back Cover
From the back cover:
What if ISIS pulls off the unthinkable and unleashes catastrophic terror attacks inside the erican homeland?
The State of the Union address is minutes away. The president of the United States is set to tell a joint session of Congress and the American people that the U.S. is finally winning the war against the Islamic State. But after tracking ISIS from Istanbul to Baghdad to Amman, New York Times national security correspondent J. B. Collins fears the worst is yet to come. ISIS jihadists have infiltrated the U.S. They are planning to launch catastrophic attacks inside American cities that could make the horrors of 9/11 pale by comparison. But Collins has uncovered only part of the story. The full truth may be worse than the American people’s darkest fears. And the consequences may be harder than Collins is prepared to imagine.
From the flap:
“Last night, enemies of the United States unleashed a cruel and cowardly attack. . . .”
After ISIS terrorists attack the U.S. Capitol building during the president’s State of the Union address, the entire world waits to see how the most powerful nation on earth will respond. But the Taylor administration is more committed to political correctness than to justice, and it falls to other nations to lead the way in hunting down Abu Khalif, the criminal and religious mastermind who heads the Islamic State.
When New York Times journalist J. B. Collins, reeling from a tragedy closer to home, suddenly finds himself in possession of vital information that could help in the search, he is once again thrust into the crosshairs of global politics. But this time it’s personal.
As he joins the hunt for the world’s most wanted and dangerous man, his quest takes him from Bar Harbor, Maine, to Tel Aviv to Cairo to Istanbul and beyond. Through it all, he has one goal: find Abu Khalif and hold him accountable for his terrible actions. But the clock is ticking, and more attacks are coming. Will Collins locate the ISIS emir before it’s too late? He will stop at nothing to do so. But at what cost?

I started Without Warning this evening with the idea of reading just a few chapters. It’s now 3am, I’m bleary eyed and wondering where the past 6 hours have gone. I’ve read many of Mr. Rosenberg’s books over the years and next to the Copper Scroll this was my favorite. Honestly, I was a little disappointed with Book II but Without Warning was a fantastic and believable read to the very end. Talk about a page turner. Wow.
For this third and final installment in the J.B. Collins series Mr. Rosenberg, in his unique way, takes current events and weaves a heart pounding thriller which makes you think seriously about the issues of our day. Even if you are not interested in politics, terrorism, international relations, Israel or spiritual issues this was just a well written and entertaining read.
And just about the time you think you've figured out the plot, Mr. Rosenberg throws in a twist that will leave you speechless.
In addition to the action, there are moving family stories and profound stories about religion.
Throughout the book, Collins isn't a very aggressive guy. On one occasion he couldn't identify someone as Khalif without having the slightest shadow of a doubt, which caused his alliance to stand down. The person did in fact turn out to be Khalif.
While frustrating at times, Collins' meek behavior does add realism to this excellent, well-written book.
And Collins is anything but meek at the end!
Before you read any further, what I am about to write reveals some plot twists. I do not give any details, but it may be more than you want to know. If so read no further.
I just finished reading Without Warning last night. It is a very well written book that connects you emotionally with the main character. So much so that it has left me a little depressed. It was a riveting book and I stayed up all night reading it. I could not put it down because I wanted to know what happened next. I particularly wanted to know what was going to happen between J.B. and Yael. And that is the source of my disappointment in this book. If you read the first two books, then you know that a romance was beginning to blossom between these two characters. While this subplot is secondary to the main plot (and some readers may not even care about it) it was something I very much enjoyed (even though I am a guy) and was looking forward to continuing in Without Warning. But from the very start of book, the reader finds that the relationship has foundered without any explanation. There is also no interaction with Yael until about halfway into the book. When she finally does appear, she is cold and unwilling to discuss what is going on with J.B. She stays this way well into the second half of the book at which point she finally reveals what is going. However, the explanation was a bit vague to me and didn't really seem to fit with the prior two books. I won't give the details, but suffice it to say it was a big let down for me. I raced through the remainder of the book hoping that the situation would reverse, but it didn't. This did not sit well with me as this was one of the main reasons I was interested in this particular book. I know this book is not a romance novel. I didn't start reading this series expecting it to be. However, the romantic relationship between J.B. and Yael was big part of the plot in the first two books and one would assume it would continue in this book. Especially if you read The Twelfth Imam series which had a similar subplot, but with a happier ending. For some reason Rosenberg decided to toss this budding romance in the trash bin. Possibly to add to J.B.'s brokenness that leads to his acceptance of Christ. However, I felt it was unnecessary and didn't seem to fit with the first two books.
I admit that this review is more an emotional response than a critique. I guess I took this a bit personally. I share a lot of similarities with the main character. Physically and emotionally. Both good and bad. I have personally experienced some of the pain this character has. Because of this, I really wanted the final chapter of this story to turn out happier than it did. Maybe that is why I am so disappointed.
