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.

    "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.

    "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.

    "Couldn't finish this"

    For the first time, I've encountered an audio book that I am unwilling to listen to through the end. There should be a warning in the description that this book is evangelism thinly disguised as a story about international conflict. I wasted a credit.

    "OK - I made it through"

    I guess I got caught up in the need to finish this thing. I did like the characters and found the three books interesting and enjoyable overall. They were not great work - but the plot was certainly current and relevant and there were interesting tid bits of info along the way.

    Not sure I would recommend - but if you start the first you should hang in there until the end of the third.

    "Can't take it"

    I couldn't handle his religious angle even though I liked the plot. Painful and I won't be listening to his books again

    "Captivating and educational..."

    Joel's books are one of my go tos in studying end time prophecy. I consider his writings a bible study to help me understand apocalyptic events. For me personally, they are so well written that I cannot put them down and I was not disappointed with this one either!!! I enjoy how he keeps the story moving from one scene to another - setting up, connecting and developing the individual characters while unfolding the story!!
    This was my first audio book and the reader kept me captivated w his excellent dialect of the different characters!! Especially the prime minister of Israel--he sounded just like the current PM, amazing!!
    One more thing: I was very moved emotionally during this read: I wept during the heart breaking scenes, laughed out loud many many times and was elated when victory was achieved. It's a very compelling read and I'd highly recommend it!!
    I will definitely purchase more audio versions of Joel's books!!! Excellent!!!

    Best of the series. It was so well read that I grew to know and like the characters. This also made it easy to follow. One of my all time favorites by audible.

    "Fantastic!"

    This was a riveting listen! I devour everything that Mr. Rosenberg writes. The action and suspense is above par, and I love that I can hear the message of the Gospel while following a richly detailed and well-developed storyline. Five stars and two thumbs up!
