Synopsis:


What if the Islamic State captured the most valuable hostage in history?


“The president of the United States . . . is missing.” With these words, New York Times journalist J. B. Collins, report-ing 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 res-cue the leader of the free world before ISIS’s threats become a catastrophic reality.






The First Hostage , the second book in the J. B. Collins series is a fast-paced political thriller that will have you spellbound from the moment you start reading it till the very last page. 

Mr. Rosenberg's writing is believable, his characters engaging and the plot is action packed, on the edge of your seat reading! He has an incredible ability to write both fiction and non-fiction superbly well and his books just keep getting better and better. I highly recommend this series! 


5 Stars!
