"After ISIS terrorists attack the U.S. Capitol building during the president's State of the Union address, the entire world waits to see how the most powerful nation on earth will respond. But the Taylor administration is more committed to political correctness than to justice, and it falls to other nations to lead the way in hunting down Abu Khalif, the criminal and religious mastermind who leads the Islamic State. When New York Times journalist J. B. Collins, reeling from a tragedy closer to home, suddenly finds himself in possession of vital information that could help in the search, he is once again thrust into the crosshairs of global politics. But this time it's personal. As he joins the hunt for the world's most wanted and dangerous man, his quest takes him from Bar Harbor, Maine, to Tel Aviv to Cairo to Istanbul and beyond. Through it all, he has one goal: find Abu Khalif and hold him accountable for his terrible actions. But the clock is ticking, and more attacks are coming. Will Collins locate the ISIS emir before it's too late? He will stop at nothing to do so. But at what cost?"-- Book jacket.… (lisätietoja)

What a great trilogy. This is the last book in J.B. Collins series, and it was intense.
I thought the book was slow compared to the first two. Without Warning has over half of the book taken place in the U.S. so there are much less action than the previous books. The story kicked into higher gear once Collins arrived on foreign soil.

Boy oh boy, the ending was good. ( )

Just like all of his other books, once you start, you can't put it down. ( )

With the Middle East on fire, the Israeli prime minister dead, and Amman in ruins, Collins fears a catastrophic attack inside the American homeland is imminent. He argues that only an all-out manhunt to capture or kill Abu Kahlif―the leader of ISIS―can stop the attack and save American lives. But will the president listen and take decisive action before it’s too late?

An epic ending to a fantastic trilogy. Rosenberg will have you on the edge of your seat, tugging at emotions and gripping your attention through the whole book.

Following on the heels of the two, action-packed novels before this, Without Warning lives up to its suspense/thriller title and delivers a powerful, thrilling, and heart-wrenching end to the J. B. Collins series.

We pick up close to where we left off with The First Hostage and jump straight into a very action-packed beginning. It's something I really appreciate about Rosenberg's writing--he grips you with the action but also has the ability to instruct you on issues, thoughts, and (of course) J.B.'s journey as a character.

This book was, in a word, heart-wrenching. I won't say much about why to avoid any spoilers but I will say that it took a few turns I was not expecting--at all. Though, to be fair, everything that happened was logical to the plot and only aided in furthering the story. Yes, there are some hard things, but there is hope too. Such beautiful hope.

I stared this whole series through audiobooks, something I'm really glad I did because I was able to really get a handle on pronouncing some of the names. But I was also able to see how it was to read a tangible copy and I really enjoyed it. The audiobooks are truly fantastic, but there is something to be said about holding the book in your hands.

I would recommend not only this book, but really the whole series! I've told so many people about this series and about Rosenberg's fantastic writing. In my mind he's on par with some of my other favorite authors like David Baldacci and Roine Kendig with the way he writes and the themes he incorporates. If you like political/action thrillers I think you'll be a fan of this.

One last thing of note for me is the reality that Rosenberg addresses faith in such a real, tangible way. I absolutely loved J.B.'s personal story coinciding with the overall plot of the three books. It was real, refreshing, and at times extremely honest.

My rating: 5

Title: Without Warning (A J. B, Collins Novel #3)
Author: Joel Rosenberg
Pages: 480
Year: 2017
Publisher: Tyndale
My rating 5 out of 5 stars.
Here is the conclusion to an exciting thrilling series with the main character J. B. Collins who we meet in the first book titled, The Third Target, followed by The Third Hostage! To follow the developing characters and plot, it is important to read the books in order as one builds upon the prior. Joel Rosenberg is one of my most favorite authors as he writes with such intense intrigue, suspense, faith and political scenarios it takes my breath away! As a reader, it is like reading what is happening in the news, except in a fictional format with such tension added it is palatable!
The ending to the series is one I didn’t see coming and to have to take breaks in reading for one reason or another was difficult! Joel Rosenberg’s books are well-researched, crafted to inform as well as entertain with faith being central to the story. There is never a dull moment in the story and one cannot help but want to read faster and faster to see where the author is taking the reader along with the characters.
To each novel, Joel brings a perspective of looking at politics, governments and America’s enemies with such astounding insight! Readers will be totally surprised by how the series ends. I wonder what will come from the mind and pen of this author that will reflect faith, history, events, and people wrapped in a captivating and believable format that makes readers like me coming back with each book for more!
One of the most precious nuances to this author’s writing is how he allows faith to help him understand world events and then reach so many via fiction whereas nonfiction might not. I cannot recommend his books highly enough as I have them all, have read them and keep them in hopes that one day my sons will read them or my grandchildren. So, grab The Third Target, The Third Hostage and Without Warning and then sit back, enjoy and share with others what you think of these books or any of his previous novels as they are worth reading over and over again!
