The Holy Warriors
A clandestine cell of Arab jihadis bomb multiple targets in New York City. Their intentions are to strike at various significant symbols of American life and thereby force the American President to show himself publicly to reassure New York's citizens. Once he comes to New York, they plan to assassinate him. A small special committee from C.I.A., the F.B.I., U.S. Army Intelligence and the New York City Police, aided by an Arabic-speaking Israeli Mossad agent is appointed to hunt the jihadis down before they can do any further damage and to prevent them from killing the President. A cliff-hanger novel of suspense, The Holy Warriors shows us the deadly chess game between these two forces, from both the jihadis' side and the American side, as well as the seething violence and the savage personal dramas beneath the hunters and the hunted. Time Magazine writes Violence has become the idiom of the times, and Rothberg proves that he understands all the nuances!
