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.

    Story
    "Weakest of the Trilogy"

    Weakest writing -- perhaps quickly written. An important message about the perils of extremist Islam. Action is good though perhaps overly "wordy" and emotional interplay always a bit of a weaker area in Joel's writing.

    Story
    "Not a mystery - just RELIGION!"
    What would have made Damascus Countdown better?

    The entire story could have been told without the unbelievable religious messages - these were NOT insignificant bits - the author proselytized about the Christian faith throughout the entire book.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Anything except by this author.


    What does Christopher Lane bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    His voices were great, with a few noticeable exceptions - there is a character in his 80ties and the voice Mr. Lane gave him actually made my ears hurt. He didn't have to go so overboard. Other voices were quite good.


    What character would you cut from Damascus Countdown?

    I wouldn't necessarily cut any characters, just the religious transformation so many had, and the huge number of Bible verses. Seriously, the author should have warned readers the book was going to be some window dressing for his "Come to Jesus" message.


    Any additional comments?

    One other thing to note - every chapter had one serious problem after another, with absolutely no breath of air. The author has written many books, so I'm pretty certain he understands that readers can be depressed for only so long. There was one massive problem after another, with nothing positive around the corner.The only reason I continued to listen was because I was certain something better had to happen. Sadly, the ending was just more of the Come to Jesus and see the wonders of the universe, message.This book was very, very disappointing.

    "Outstanding"

    Outstanding. Something significant will happen in the fall of 2015. Read The Mystery of the Shmetah by Joel Rosenberg next.

    Story
    "Edge of my Seat"
    If you could sum up Damascus Countdown in three words, what would they be?

    Breath Taking ........


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    John Bennet


    What does Christopher Lane bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    His skill as a actor narrator brings the book to like. Keeping you drawn in to the story in a way that you can't stop listening


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    YES


    Any additional comments?

    I listen to books in my car while on business trips and this was one that I had to keep listening to even in the hotel room. I was amazed how easily this could happen in the world we live in or will still happen.
