Rosenberg as an author recently. Everything I read in reviews on his books were fantastic and spot on. I just finished Without Warning and had a hard time putting it down. The plot could be taken from today's headlines on what is going on in the world and in the news. While this is fiction it is riveting and there is plenty of action, suspense, interaction between characters. While this is part of a series you can read it as a stand alone. This is only the second book I've read by Joel Rosenberg but I've already bought another series by him. This is definitely not a romantic suspense by any means. J.B. Collins is a war correspondent for the New York Times and has an instinct for a story and what trail to follow. There are twist to the story that you won't be expecting and some of the characters from his previous book are brought into this one there is just enough background information that you won't be lost.
I bought this book through a local indy. bookstore and no one asked me to review this book. All opinions are my own and I only give 5 star ratings to books that either touch my heart, my emotions or are truly page turners. I did shed a few tears and I read over half of the book in one sitting and finished it up today (the next day). I highly recommend this book to anyone that likes a good thriller and fiction that could happen today. I read a review that said Joel C. Rosenberg's books are almost prophetic and that some of the things he wrote about years ago have happened. I know what I read could happen today or tomorrow.
Gail5 Stars Out Of 5Fantastic Book!August 29, 2017GailQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Without Warning is the third and last in the JB Collins series. Joel Rosenberg quickly recaps the previous first two books but does not spend a lot of time before the story quickly picks up and moves forward. While the book is a fictional book, it connects with the reader of our current geopolitical world. With each page turn, I was wondering how will this end, will it end with a happy ending, with the good guys winning? Without spoiling the ending I will say this, it didn't end quite the way I thought it would, but the ending shows how God works in ways we would not imagine nor quite the way we would write our own story. Through out the book it is evident that Joel has done his research and is very knowledgeable in understanding the countries and players within the Middle East. I finished the book with a different perspective and understanding of the times we live in, the various tensions and the various players in the complex issues we are facing today. I didn't want the story to end and yet the story comes to a close in a way that fits the story line well. This was a delightful book to read and one that I enjoyed immensely. I would recommend it for anyone who enjoys a good political mystery thriller. Thanks Tyndale Publishing for my complimentary copy in exchange for my honest opinion.

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.
