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.

    "Exciting, Fast paced story."
    Where does Damascus Countdown rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    At or near the top. However I am still a novice to audiobooks.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The final scenes in Syria, both at the airbase and the race to get there on time.


    What about Christopher Lane’s performance did you like?

    He captured the emotions of the moment, especially during the hospital raid scenes, the action at the airbase in Syria, and the convoy from Iran to Syria.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    I believe near the end when the Seals gave their all, the learned scholar and the "Mole" sacrificed themselves to prevent a nuclear event.


    Any additional comments?

    I wish I had read the first two books before reading this one.

    Story
    "Unpredictable and Astounding!"
    What made the experience of listening to Damascus Countdown the most enjoyable?

    It was the full package, the performance was awesome and the story was totally unpredictable. Though the life and death, dooms day scenarios might be a bit much for some readers to accept there was nothing cheesy about it. Quite the opposite in fact, you are sitting on pens and needles while your mind is racing and your heart is pounding.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The story was strong and well developed as you clung to the hope that the characters you love will survive the day of reckoning. The best part is how unpredictable the plot is with the exception that the prophecies do come true, but the how constantly plagues you.


    What about Christopher Lane’s performance did you like?

    Once again the performance is astounding, every character's voice is distinguishable and their rhythms are consistent. I can not say enough about how amazing of a job he does.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    There are several moments that moved me but if I share them I will soil it for the next reader. I will say this, I cried and cheered several times in this book. I also gasped a lot!


    Any additional comments?

    I am hoping there are more booking coming in this series, the first three books were amazing. These should be movies!!!!!!

    "Very riveting and informative"
    Would you listen to Damascus Countdown again? Why?

    Yes I would listen to it again. You can always learn more the second time.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    David was my favorite character, although I liked several. It is intriguing how he always survived every situation with God's help.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Probably the destruction of Damascus.


    If you could take any character from Damascus Countdown out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    Probably the teacher (cannot remember how to spell his name).


    Any additional comments?

    I believe everyone should take this story seriously and try to bring as many people as possible with them to heaven before it is too late. I believe it is later than most people think.

    "A Real posibility"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    Yes, I would change some of the reading style.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    Surprise.


    Did Christopher Lane do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    Yes. He added accents to different people and between the various characters.


    Do you think Damascus Countdown needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    No. Too depressing.


    Any additional comments?

    A lot of what was in the book was familiar to me. Some of it was drawn from biblical prophesy. There was some conjecture and I guess that is why it is a fictional tale.

    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    A good story wrapped around a religious message that was designed to convert non-Christians to Christians. Why did the author have to dilute the story?

    "Current Events Meets End Times Prophecy"

    I read Rosenberg's The Twelfth Imam because I was intrigued by the idea of mixing current events, espionage, and end time prophecy in one story. Turns out it was only the start, followed first by The Tehran Initiative and most recently the third volume, Damascus Count Down. All good and taken as a whole an extremely enjoyable series full of details of life inside the Iranian power elite. Rosenberg's obvious familiarity with the current geopolitical scene, his ability to depict world leaders who you will recognize as the current role players by another name add credibility and realism, and well crafted espionage plotting and intrigue put his writing on par with the best.

    But those characteristics can be found in many books by many authors. What sets Rosenberg apart is his knowledgeable exploration of Islamic and Christian world views and end time prophecy, and the unabashed evangelistic tone and purpose of the stories. It does not hurt that he has a penchant (is that really all it is?) for prophesying in his own right (see The Last Jihad for one notable example). Let's hope his latest is not as accurate.

    Good stuff here. Well crafted and written with a unique purpose. An eye opener for those who believe men alone decide their fate.

    Story
    "Typical Rosenberg. Spot on!"
    What did you love best about Damascus Countdown?

    It it a relevant and all-to-likely story line. If you haven't read any of Rosenbergs works before, I suggest you read the Ezekiel option first, then read the Twelfth Imam series in whole. Joel is an end-times scholar who has a remarkable grasp of Biblical prophesy. It is amazing to see how many aspects of his previous novels have actually come to pass. I'm almost afraid to know what parts of this will actually happen in our lifetime. Then again, as a Christian, its not something to worry about. If you're offended by God and the Bible, these books are not for you unless you are interested in knowing what will happen in the End Times.


    What did you like best about this story?

    It explains so much of current events...


    Have you listened to any of Christopher Lane’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No, but I am amazed at how well he makes each character unique


    Who was the most memorable character of Damascus Countdown and why?

    Dr. Morazzi

    Where does Damascus Countdown rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    It ranks TOP on the list.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The action and the truth behind the scenes.


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

    He does great voices.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Well, the end of course. I got the ending I desired!


    Any additional comments?

    Joel is very gifted as an author and a great Man of God. A very likeable speaker and presenter.

    "Best Series I've Read--Hurry #4"
    Where does Damascus Countdown rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    One of the first where I was disappointed #4 wasn't there to read right away.


    What other book might you compare Damascus Countdown to and why?

    The first two of this series. Usually you guess how it's going to end. This one left me begging for the ANSWER.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The scenes of the Messiah appearing. Are there more? Which one is he going to choose? I want the next book right away. Love this series more than any other. Hurry and write it.


    If you could rename Damascus Countdown, what would you call it?

    No, I think the title is perfect.


    Any additional comments?

    Hope next book comes out soon and really don't want it to draw out. I want a good ending and hope it's what I would like but could be a big surprise.
