Excerpts from Mr. Rosenberg’s latest book review:
“New York Times best-selling author Joel C. Rosenberg will deliver the next page-turning adventure of former U.S. Secret Service agent Marcus Ryker in his newest and perhaps most chilling and ambitious novel to date, The Persian Gamble, on March 12, 2019. (Tyndale House Publishers, hardcover, $27.99, ISBN 978-1-4964-0618-7).
“As countering the Iran nuclear threat increasingly dominates the real-life national security agendas of President Trump, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and other world leaders, Rosenberg takes readers on a high-speed, high-stakes, spell-binding fictional journey that feels like it could be ripped out of tomorrow’s headlines.
“Rosenberg has repeatedly proven his ability to foreshadow geopolitical realities, marking his place as a leader in fact-based fiction. As such, he has sold millions of books and garnered high-powered fans ranging from presidents, prime ministers and kings to CIA directors and dozens of members of the U.S. House and Senate.
“’My novels are about worst-case scenarios, terrible events that could happen in the near future though we pray they do not. My goal isn’t to write what’s in the headlines today but what could be coming, God forbid, in a few years,’ said Rosenberg. ‘What I loved about writing The Persian Gamble was tying the fate of three enemy powers — Russia, Iran, and North Korea — into one chilling scenario and putting my hero, Marcus Ryker, in the vortex of the danger. Most people see these three countries as threats. But they don’t necessarily see them as allies, actively working together and plotting catastrophic attacks against the West. But that’s what I fear is happening and that’s where I take Ryker and his team.’”
“The Persian Gamble follows the success of Rosenberg’s 2018 novel, The Kremlin Conspiracy, which portrayed the growing tensions between Russia and the U.S. and placed Ryker at the tip of the spear in stopping a possible nuclear war brought on by the plotting of a fictional President of the Russian Federation.” (ONLINE NEWSROOM: https://alarryross.com/joel-c-rosenberg )
