My thoughts: When Joel Rosenburg "puts pen to paper" he opens doors to areas of life unknown and inexperienced to the average person. His fiction into the political, espionage, terrorist world of today reads like reports to heads of state and back-workings of news journalists who are in the know.
Having read earlier novels about national security journalist J.B.Collins, I highly anticipated this conclusion to the series - Without Warning. Rosenburg did not disappoint. His writing was fast paced, detailed, with characters whose believability was flawless. His descriptions left this reader placed squarely within the scene with the action.
J.B.Collins is not a Christian though raised in the Church. His brother is a professor of theology. Both see action in this story. They both see grief as well as it reaches into their beings. The horrific scenes of terrorist attracts on America are unbelievably realistic and horrifying to imagine.
The title is so apt in the case of this story from beginning to end. While warned sufficiently, it seems that horror can hit at any moment, Without Warning.
I highly recommend this series for all high school to adult readers. It is clean. It is horrifyingly real. It is Christian in scope. It takes the reader through action and also into the courts of Islamic Princes' and Heads of State.
