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
    "Jesus vs Mohammed grudge match"

    Having purchased these three books, I was under the impression that I was going to hear a Robert Ludlum like story.
    In addition, I couldn't help but notice the name of the author: Joel Rosenberg.

    The story is obviously written by an evangelical Christian who is using a very Jewish pseudonym.

    In the end Jesus beats Mohammed and that'll teach him for altering the scriptures!
    The story would have been a lot better without the evangelical 'come to Jesus' lines all over the text.

    "Christopher Lane's narration is the best!!!"

    Christopher Lane's narration is so awesome. It draws your emotions out and really gets you involved in the story.

    Story
    "A Commuters Best Friend - Listen to the series"
    What did you like best about this story?

    Rosenberg wove history, scripture and fictional characters together in such a way that you could actually believe it was from current events.


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

    Christopher Lane does great accents which made this story come alive. If you grew up outside the US you'll know what I mean.

    Story
    "Good book, Comical narration"

    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.

    Story
    "Familiar Pattern"

    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.

    "Loved it!"

    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.
