Oil prices are surging to record highs. A new dictator is rising in Iraq. China is threatening Taiwan. North Korean forces are ready to strike south. Israel is feverishly trying to complete the Third Temple. And in the midst of a world ready to explode, American president James MacPherson's second term is ending. The battle to succeed him is heating up into the most fiercely contested presidential election in American history. Who will lead a bitterly divided country over the next four years? And just what role -- if any -- does the U.S. play in history's last days? As the presidential campaign narrows into a dead heat, the Secret Service learns of a catastrophic terrorist plot to assassinate one of the candidates -- but which one? Who do they want dead? And can U.S. forces stop the terrorists before millions lose their lives?

I listened to Dead Heat on CD thinking that it was in a similar vein to Vince Flynn, Brad Thor, Daniel Silva, or Alex Berenson novels and was extremely disappointed. Dead Heat is the fifth entry in Rosenberg’s Political Thriller series. It’s an end-of-the-world novel which operates on the premise that acts foretold in the Book of Revelations will come to pass in our time. I stuck with Dead Heat wondering how he was going to pull it off. Unfortunately most of the plot devices don’t work and the willing suspension of disbelief isn’t there. First, it’s hard to believe that an attack on the US as laid out could be pulled off in a post-911 world. Second, the political structure of the Middle East is totally opposite from what we see now. Improbable events follow more improbable events. I expected that series heroes Jon and Erin Bennett would play a major role in the action but they didn’t. The novel requires a sequel but there hasn’t been one in the 9 years since Dead Heat was published. Rosenberg has gone on to write other novels and series. Perhaps they are better than Dead Heat although I’m in no hurry to try them.

Its too bad this doomsday story of Armegeddon is far too religiously tinged. 2 of 10 stars for this depressing effort to scare people to jesus.
