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.

I've enjoyed the 12th Iman trilogy. This is the first audible version I've purchased in the series. Christopher Lane's narration is solid until he attempts to do the different accents. I'm never quite sure where is world I'll end up once a new character enters...Africa, Australia, Little Italy in the Bronx, however never Iran or Israel. I suppose I appreciate the attempt, but it's distracting, sometimes comical, often annoying. I suggest if narrators don't have a good handle on accents, just skip it. The rest of his narration was good. Overall a great series.

Ugg I knew what I was in for which this book since I had read the first two but I have this unbearable urge to find out how stories end and since the one before left so much open when I saw this on sale I had to grab it even though I probably wasn’t going to like it. If you’ve read the first two then this one follows the same pattern. The first 25% is great well written and full of action then he goes on and talked about religion for the next 65% of the book with the last 10% being a mix of the two. Thankfully this book brings the story to an end so I can purge ever reading these again from my thoughts. Aside from the religious aspect the ending seems a bit thrown together. It brought the story to an end quickly but I was left feeling a bit cheated with how it ended. There are much better action stories out there.
Mr. Lane's narration is the lone bright spot in this book.
Great thriller in a plausible biblical context that held my interest beginning to end. This is my first Rosenberg series and I can't wait for the next one.
This was a great series. It was among my favorites. It is a must listen. The religious aspect to the story was very interesting.
It's a well thought out fictional account of possible future events. There were only a few oh c'mon moments. The love story is a sweet 20 something romance,and a a little touching too. The scriptural revelations were very interesting. The Christian conversions were a little churchy, but unless yoir offended by Christianity, it's a very good read.
From a 40 something Irishman with no interest in man made democracy or organised religion in any form: The Author's OCD in the form of obsessing over the evil of Muslims and impotence of Barak Obama has grown from mild in the first book to the point of teetering on lunatic ranting in the last. It's a shame as the author is very capable of writing good fiction. Instead he has written inaccurate jibber jabber that unfortunately will likely feed the hatred on both sides of the religious divide that is feeding a lot of today's global conflict or arms trading which ever way you look at it
