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.

    "Is it a story it is it today's news?"

    Amazing that I can listen to this book then I'm listening to the radio and have to pause to remember if it is a book or the news. The reality of what Joel brings forth is what can be happening today in the news. This is a GREAT book. In fact, the entire series is tremendous!

    "Read them in order and enjoy"

    I would love to give a eloquent and engaging review but all I can say is, Read These!
    The Rosenberg series has been days of excitement and thought provoking narration.
    I only give 5 star ratings for true everlasting masterpieces. (Like Outlaw Platoon by Parnell and Bruning, and The Outpost by Tapper) After once again wishing I could give a 4.5 for this whole three book series I give it a absolute guarantee of enjoyment if you are a reader like I.

    "You know what you are getting"

    If you have read or listened to other books by Rosenberg, you know you will be getting a lot of religion mixed with action. This is the third book in this particular series by Rosenberg. It's better because there is more action than before. But it can be a bit of religion overload at times. Still I enjoyed listening.

    "Great Series Good book"

    Another good book by Joel C Rosenberg. A good mix of what is happening today with Bible prophecy and history. A good follow up to the Tehran initiative and the 12th Imam.

    "Not disappointing!"

    I enjoyed Damascus Count Down very much. Joel Rosenberg is a very good storyteller and when you mix in the fact that he is an expert of the Middle Eastern culture, it gets very exciting.

    Story
    "SO far, this is my favorite fiction by Rosenberg"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Damascus Countdown to be better than the print version?

    I have not read the print version. It is better for me because I listen as I do cardio.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Damascus Countdown?

    The end. Loved the conclusion.


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

    I am not sure. He did a great job here.


    Any additional comments?

    The author is always teaching about the last day of this era of mankind from a biblical perspective. I believe that he is accurate, informative and entertaining.

    "Weak ending"
    What did you like best about Damascus Countdown? What did you like least?

    intelligent blend of Biblical truth, science, and current political issues. I thought the ending was not as good as the rest of the 3 book trilogy.


    If you’ve listened to books by Joel C. Rosenberg before, how does this one compare?

    Not the best Rosenberg fiction. OK, entertaining, but it felt to me like the story had to end, so it did. I felt more fatigue than suspense toward the end.

    "Not a thriller!"

    The story line had great potential. However, I feel it was written for born again Christians. If I wanted to sit through over 10 hours of preaching, I'd have bought something else!.

    Story
    "Good story and very relevant to our times"

    A good follow-up to the earlier books and one I enjoyed more than Book 2. Joel Rosenberg is not a top level writer, say, in the class of Daniel Silva, but he still has an important role to play in the writing firmament. Daniel Silva can subtly work in information from earlier books that you need to know but Joel Rosenberg doesn't have that talent. So, sometimes you are a bit confused about who the people are and that takes away from the current book. Also, a really talented writer can make a book in a series stand alone through working in what you need to know and that isn't there in this book. These books are better read in the series of 3.

    Having said that, the story is amazingly close to events in the world and is worthwhile for that alone. It's a good story and the characters seem believable and people who you care about. I like the Christian backdrop as a refreshing change to the dominant view permeating everything else and I don't find it overdone. The narrator was amazing, with a huge range of accents to pull off and I found myself beginning to visualize the characters based on his voices. So, great stuff and I'd be happy to read Book 4 in the series if there ever is such a thing. Since the world doesn't end in this one (spoiler alert), why not?

    Story
    "Simply Awesome"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Damascus Countdown to be better than the print version?

    I'm glad I chose the unabridged audio version over print. The reader did voices so well, I forgot the characters were fictional. The story seemed real


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Damascus Countdown?

    Dr. Birjandi's final stand in the facility. I wondered if he would truly stand for Christ. I knew in my heart he would, but it was amazing to see it happen. He was afraid but did what he had to do. I sometimes time wonder if I could be as courageous. This scene reminded me to be in prayer and ready at all times to speak the truth even if might mean my execution.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Nouri's kidnapping from the hospital had me off the edge of my chair. It didn't seem like they could pull that off, but the quickness and unity of the team made it happen. I loved the courage, teamwork, and daring of all the players.


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

    Twelfth Imam Goes Down -- he was the essence of evil. Glad to see him go.


    Any additional comments?

    Lots of page-turning tension. I now have no more fingernails, but it was worth it. My favorite book of 2013 so far.
