First Hostage: What If ISIS Captured the President of the United States?


Author Joel C. Rosenberg's latest thriller, The First Hostage, reads like it's ripped from today's headlines.

In it, New York Times journalist J. B. Collins, reporting from the scene of a devastating attack by ISIS terrorists in Amman, Jordan, puts the entire world on high alert with the words "The president of the United States . . . is missing."

The leaders of Israel and Palestine are critically injured, Jordan's king is fighting for his life, and the U.S. president is 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.

Meanwhile, ISIS still has chemical weapons. Struggling to clear his name, Collins and the Secret Service try frantically to locate and rescue the leader of the free world before ISIS's threats become a catastrophic reality.

Rosenberg will appear on The 700 Club, Jan. 12, to talk about his latest fictional thriller and how it relates to real events currently taking place in the Middle East.
