About:

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

With these words, New York Times 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 leaders of Israel and Palestine are critically injured, Jordan’s king is fighting for his life, and the U.S. president is missing and presumed captured.

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 and the Secret Service try frantically to locate and rescue the leader of the free world before ISIS’s threats become a catastrophic reality.

About:

I really have mixed emotions about this book.

It is definitely intense from the first page and doesn’t give you a change to come up for air. One thing after another keeps happening and you wonder who you can trust and what will happen next.

I had a bit an issue with the writing style, I had trouble connecting with the character and I wonder if it was due to style of writing.

But, this is a book that will give you a lot to think about in light of the events in our world and will make you wonder what if this stuff really happened, it’s certainly possible.
