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.

    "Using fiction to share Prophecy"

    it's a great trilogy that uses a fictional story to share the Gospel and the exciting prophecies that are being fulfilled around us.

    Story
    "A very interesting look at an apocalyptic future"

    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.

    Story
    "Impartial foreigner would suggest author has OCD"

    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

    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.
