Publisher's Summary

Israel successfully launches a first strike on Iran, taking out all of their nuclear sites and six of their nuclear warheads. American president William Jackson threatens to support a U.N. Security Council resolution condemning the Jewish State for unprovoked and unwarranted acts of aggression. And the Twelfth Imam prepares to order a genocidal retaliation.

Meanwhile, CIA operative David Shirazi has infiltrated the Iranian regime and intercepted top secret intelligence indicating that two Iranian nuclear warheads survived the attack and have been moved to a secure and undisclosed location. In danger not only from the ongoing war between Israel and Iran but also from the increasingly hostile governments in multiple countries, Shirazi and his team are in a race against time to find the remaining nuclear warheads before the most cataclysmic event in the history of the Middle East comes to pass.

    "Rosenberg delivers BUT"

    Rosenberg puts together another page turner but intertwined in the espionage, bombs and intrigue are too many personal stories of characters finding Jesus. I don't know if he's trying to broaden his appeal or just doesn't realize how these ill fitting, forced and interruptive these subplots are to the story.

    "An amazing novel!"

    Everything we love and look forward to from Joel C Rosenberg. The twists, turns, story line, and especially elaboration of the plot formation, and character development that Joel is so well known for! This is a series, start with the first book, in order to appreciate the full scope development. Highly recommended! Kate

    Great book. Couldn't stop listening to it. Amazing story of God's love and redemption in our ever changing world. Great insight into possible events in the Middle East.

    "Predictable"

    This book and the series was too religious and predictable. I liked the first book and second book better. The third book was disturbing with all the proselytizing. I almost didn't finish it.

    "Great Narration by Lane/The Story was Spellbinding"

    Rosenberg is the best at writing about the end times. His understanding and knowledge of biblical prophecy is Awesome! Chris Lane has a gift for bringing the characters to life. It is amazing the way he can switch his voice back and forth from male to female in so many different dialects these include Iranian, Jewish, German, English, I thought I even heard some redneck in there and so many more. This series is a must for anyone with an interest in end time prophecy.

    "Watch the trap"

    Book 1and 2suggest the religious message hidden that blooms fully in book 3. Christian will overcome Islam - lots of preaching (Jesus is the savior, Bible trumps Koran). Get past that and not a bad read. Talented spies (white Anglo Jewish vs. Muslims)

    "This book has way too much Bible verse!"

    WAY TOO MANY BIBLE VERSES If I wanted to study the bible I would have read it. I really struggled to finish the book and actually fast forwarded to the end. Too bad it could have been a good listen.

    Story
    "Great Story Ruined By Religeous Dogma"
    Would you try another book from Joel C. Rosenberg and/or Christopher Lane?

    not from Joel C. Rosenberg, but the narrator was exellent


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    anything


    What about Christopher Lane’s performance did you like?

    He is very good with various accents


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    The overal story had great promise. Any story of political intrigue in the Middle East has something going for it.


    Any additional comments?

    Listening to this Trilogy was good in the first novel with only a small mention of religion. But the second and third novels were redolent with religeous conversions from Islam to Fundamentalist Christianity. It became ridiculous when the protagonist, who is a high trained undercover agent for the CIA, has a epiphany and starts praying in the midst of multiple operations. Also the behavior of some of the characters in Langly, the White House, and the UN were totally contradictory to real life actions. The only characters that acted true to form were the Israelis. And no I am not Jewish or Isreali. All-in-all you might want to give this trilogy a pass.
