Only a solid Arab-Israeli coalition against Iraq can keep the U.S. and other Western nations from certain devastation. And only Bennett and his beautiful partner, Erin McCoy, can make that happen. Their secret project - a billion dollar oil deal off the coast of Gaza - could be the basis for an historic peace treaty and enormous wealth for every Israeli and Palestinian.
But just before the treaty can be signed, Israeli commandos foil an Iraqi scud missile launch, recovering a nuclear warhead and evidence that the next attack will level Washington, New York, and Tel Aviv.
Now, the Israeli prime minister gives the American President an ultimatum: melt down Baghdad within one hour...or Israel will do it herself.
From Jerusalem, Bennett and McCoy must summon all of their stealth and savvy to save themselves - and the world - from absolute destruction.

"Dick Hill performs this thriller with practiced ease, speeding up when the tension should rise and relaxing through the backstory....[D]oomsday predictions and a spectacular ending bring Rosenberg's speculations to a dramatic conclusion." (AudioFile)
Dick Hill's performance is great. While I think Rosenberg is a good writer, the fact that many events are out of date or ended up with very different results (ie: the Taliban has been decimated in the book, but is still very much alive in real life) takes away from the book for the 2012 listener. On the other hand, it makes me curious about how Rosenberg will deal with those issues later in the series.
I enjoy Bible prophecy and it was interesting to learn more of the mind set of the thinking and also the technology developments in the countries of the mideast.
I've listened to the entire series. All are very good. Since the start of the series is suppose to take place in the last 10 years or so (which was the future when it was written).. you have to suspend your knowledge a bit. But, it is a gripping series and well worth the listen. Christian series and gives us a "what if" possibility. Some parts are dry, but necessary to get the background. The reader is excellent - and brought a lot to the story. Yes, I'd recommend it - well worth the credits!
Great dual... Rosenberg and Hill! This story was engaging and fast paced, leaves you wanting to download the sequel without a doubt.
fourth or fifth
I enjoyed the story lne and the plot, its a little outdated, but it didn't keep me from being into it.
Dick Hill is a great Narrator except when he's speaking as the narrator. Then he sounds like a terse robot. using words quickly annunciated. When he gets into character is when he is at his best.
I love books with significance
I recommend this to everyone
Story is riveting at first it seemed like there were just to many details but after you get use to the style the story takes off and you are hooked for the whole series.
Life is a journey, enjoy it......because one day it will all end.
A good fictional account of how the middle east conflict could have played out or possibly still can. Rosenberg's style of writing is James Bond crossed with Mission Impossible without the fancy over the top gadgets super villians. The historical accounts the he incorporates requires you to do a reality check at times because you forget what is fact and what is fiction.
The Twelth Imam, The Tehran Initiative, Damascus Countdown, A Time to Betray.
Yes, he narrated the first Lee Child book in the Jack Reacher series, The Killing Floor. He is a great narrator. I love how the characters come to life when he reads.
Considering that I have a reading disorder, the Audible compamy has quenched a great day of time with Audible as my greatest personal fre
This and the next book to follow in the series are truly an amazing series of action and adventure novels based in so many Countries with so much historic truths to fuel the excitement.
Believers in the Christian way of life or not, I believe this is serious mental exercise and edge of seat listening. The narration is flawless, the writing style flows with ease, the story is believable, and this book has amazing historic fact and research.
A must read/Listen for readers such as I. After over 200 books I have gone through, I was running out of great Authors and series to choose from. Stumbling onto this series with general browsing feels like a blessing.
The reader was excellent, but the story line was terrible! Very predictable and I found myself not interested by Chapter 3.
Nothing, I like Dick Hill. I think it would've been better to have had multiple narrators.
