Neesa Hart Left Behind Political Books
Book I - End of State
Book II - Impeachable Offense
Book III - Necessary Evils
These books were okay. I'd recommend reading them, however, I don't think the author explored the political plots and sub-plots that she could've in this series. Lots of behind the scenes action regarding the political process of how Carpathia comes to power but she didn't get into it as much as she could have and should have. It would've made for a more interesting series. However, I'm into politics so my vision is skewed.
Also, she got a little preachy in her dialogue and thoughts of her characters. I found myself wanting to skip ahead to pick the storyline up again.
Her main character is Brad Benton, White House Chief of Staff. He's been brought in to rehabilitate Fitzhugh's image and knows he has no real power in the West Wing. His wife and kids disappear during the Rapture and he figures out what's going on, struggles with his faith and figures out Carpathia is the anti-christ.
Based on the way the third book ends there should be more in this series.
