THE JERUSALEM ASSASSIN, Marcus Ryker book #3 by Joel C. Rosenberg, Reviewed by Rebecca Maney

"You ever once think about how much danger you put everyone in who gets near you?"

It's a fair statement. Marcus Rycker is a dangerous man to be around; not only do international terrorists rarely stand a chance against his intense thirst for justice, but it's become apparent that those Marcus has loved the most have been lost in the process; a tragic result of his highly dangerous career assignments.
Barely having time to grieve yet another dear friend and mentor, Marcus is shuttled over to the Middle East in preparation for a high stakes peace deal among three of the most powerful men in the world; the President of the United States, Israel's Prime Minister, and the Monarch of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. Unprecedented . . . especially when an unnamed terrorist group decides to make their own mark on world history. Ultimately, it's up to Marcus to thwart their efforts while guaranteeing protection for all three heads of state.

"This was it. The moment he had been told to wait on. . . . . . Imagine. All three in the same room. At the same time . . . How it would happen, he did not know. But he had no doubt in his mind that these three men were going to die. And he would be the one to kill them."

What a rush! This adrenaline laced story is altogether compelling, brilliant, and completely unnerving; it even hints at what could be our hope for the future, either in this world or the next. Joel Rosenberg has such a grasp of the Middle East and its history, that one could almost believe that there is a Marcus Ryker out there for "such a time as this".

The enemy is invisible and moving fast. The body count is rising. And time is running out.

Marcus Ryker has spent his entire career studying killers. One thing he knows for sure: a peace summit is the ultimate stage for an assassination.

President Andrew Clarke is determined to announce his historic peace plan from the Temple Mount in Jerusalem. But when senior American officials who support the plan begin violently dying, Clarke orders Ryker and his team of CIA operatives to hunt down those responsible and bring the killing spree to an end.

When the Palestinians denounce the American plan, the Saudis signal they may be ready to forge a historic treaty with Israel. Could the Saudi king’s support be the missing ingredient that will lead to peace at long last?

Ryker soon uncovers a chilling plot to kill the American president. A well-resourced international alliance is dead set against the peace plan. They will stop at nothing to strike a blow against the Americans and seize leadership of the Muslim world.

With all eyes on Jerusalem and the president in the crosshairs, it’s up to Ryker to eliminate the terrible evil that’s been set in motion. The fate of the region depends on his success. He has 48 hours.
