The First Hostage picks up where The Third Target leaves off. Isis takes the President of the United States hostage and the King of Jordan coordinates a search and rescue mission for the president. It’s a great read and an excellent story. The sequel comes out early 2017.

What if the Islamic State captured the most valuable hostage in history? "The president of the United States . . . is missing." With these words, 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. The leaders of Israel and Palestine are critically injured, Jordan's king is fighting for his life, and the U.S. president is missing and 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. And ISIS still has chemical weapons . . .
Struggling to clear his name, Collins and the Secret Service try frantically to locate and res-cue the leader of the free world before ISIS's threats become a catastrophic reality.
