The Last Days (Political Thrillers Series #2)
The battle of Iraq is over. Now the eyes of the world are on Jerusalem as Jon Bennett—a Wall Street strategist turned senior White House advisor—his beautiful CIA partner Erin McCoy, and the U.S. Secretary of State arrive in the Middle East to meet with Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat.
On the table: a dramatic and potentially historic Arab-Israeli peace plan, of which Bennett is the chief architect.
At the heart of the proposed treaty is the discovery of oil and natural gas that could offer unprecedented riches for every Muslim, Christian and Jew in Israel and Palestine.
With the international media closely tracking the story, the American message is as daring as it is direct: both sides must put behind them centuries of bitter, violent hostilities to sign a peace treaty. Both sides must truly cooperate on drilling, pumping, refining, and shipping the newly found petroleum. Both sides must work together to develop a dynamic, integrated economy to take advantage of this stunning opportunity. Then and only then will the United States help underwrite the billions of dollars of venture capital needed to turn the dream into reality.But in the shadows lie men whose hearts are filled with evil—men whose hearts do not relish a post-Saddam era.
