The world is on the brink of disaster. Iran has just conducted its first atomic weapons test. Millions of Muslims around the world are convinced their messiah — known as the Twelfth Imam — has arrived on earth. Israeli leaders fear Tehran, under the Twelfth Imam’s spell, will soon launch a nuclear attack that could bring about a second Holocaust and the annihilation of Israel. The White House fears Jerusalem will strike first, launching a massive preemptive attack against Iran’s nuclear facilities that could cause the entire Middle East to go up in flames, oil prices to skyrocket, and the global economy to collapse. With the stakes high and few viable options left, the president of the United States orders CIA operative David Shirazi and his team to track down and sabotage Iran’s nuclear warheads before Iran or Israel can launch a devastating first strike. But will they be too late?

The plot had great potential. The Shite's Sixth Imam arriving at the same time Iran sucessfully tests it's first nuclear bomb. Unfortunately, the hero's
No. There is too much religion. The good Christians defeat the bad Muslims.
Storyline is torn from current headlines and is very well developed. So it's a good read. However, the religious subplot, pitting Islam versus Christianity, seems contrived and the conversions that take place not credible. In addition many loose ends remain unresolved at the book's conclusion. Not a bad novel, just one that could have been crafted better.
The book has an obvious religious message that the author attempts to deliver through the story of a mid east nuclear crisis. If you want to read about miracles and visions in the midst of pending war, this book is for you. The problem is that the story line is lame and exists only to allow the author to preach. A horrible book.
I enjoy anything about orthodox christanity novels, biographies and history as it relates to christianity.I also enjoyJohn Grisham type nov
Great detail and excellent character development extremely realistic story line. I would highly recommend this book especially to those that are followers of Christ and those that are intrigued by bible prophecy.
Passionate lover of Jesus Christ. I also love reading mysteries and historical books
I've read a lot of books, but it is certainly up there in ranking in the fiction category.
It was a very entertaining 'listen'.
Narration syrupy, plot and characters half dimensional. This is a sad attempt to coordinate end of the world theology, the bible and the koran with present occurrences through the eyes and thoughts of the characters. Sad

Exciting, and certainly possible.
The fact that Mr. Rosenberg is always relevant, regardless of how frightening it is.
Good, have liked them all.
Wake up, Mr President
This is an interesting way to push Christianity. Jesus is good, Muslim beliefs are evil, Jews are just Jews. The story flows fast and is hard to put down, but the real intent is to proselytize Jesus. It's all too compartmentalized for my taste. If you read it with the understanding that the author is a great fiction writer, it starts to just be fun.
The parallel between what is our countries recent approach to the conflicts in the Middle East and the administrations undercutting Isreal as an Allie.
The action and drama
Great use of dialects and phrasing with each character.
There are two that hit close to home. The first was the Presidents actions during the build up of hostilities and then the Intel agencies burocracy.
