“Without Warning” by Joel C. Rosenberg

Real Life in the Pages of Fiction?

Terrorists are attacking multiple cities across The United States, and the President is reluctant to launch counter measures against it.  This is despite the Capitol Building being bombed while the President was in it—and a successful kidnapping of the President a short time earlier by this same group.  J. B. Collins, on the other hand, a New York Times reporter, has no qualms about publicly identifying ISIS as the group responsible for all the destruction.  He also attempts to warn the American public that this is only the beginning of attacks, and the worst is yet to come.

In an effort to prevent that, J. B. finds himself talking with the president who once again doesn’t want to escalate anything involving the ISIS group.  While Collins is trying to drum up American attention about the dangers of ISIS, his family is viciously attacked.  Collins himself becomes a wanted man by the terrorists, and he must constantly watch over his shoulder for potential assailants.  If he can’t get the American president to listen to him, he must find someone powerful to hear him out before it is too late.

With the clock ticking before ISIS makes another deadly attack, J.B. attempts to meet with world leaders in the Middle East.  Suddenly he has some unexpected resources open up that just might help him do that.  The question is, if he is able to plead his case with these other countries, will they be willing to work together to stop ISIS?  Because one country alone will not be enough, and everything must happen quickly because there isn’t much time.

This is a fast-paced thriller with lots of twists and turns along with incredible chase scenes—normally I am not a fan of those, but it really works in this tale.  Collins’ discussions with the different country’s heads of state are so realistic they sound like that have been taken straight from today’s headlines.  But what will really surprise the reader is the ending—it is definitely one that I didn’t see coming.  All I can say is, “Wow!”  Without Warning is Book 3 in the J. B. Collins Series, but this tale can be read on its own.  I highly recommend this 5-star book to anyone who enjoys exciting thrillers, fictionalized accounts of today’s world, or Christian fiction.
