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?

I enjoyed the overall story and narration. I listened to the entire book over the course of 2-3 days. However the religious overtones and "twists" of the story made me roll my eyes many times while listening to this.
Boring, right-wing claptrap. Story line is weak, I wish I would have known more about the book before purchasing.
This book in some ways was actually prescient. However, too much religion. It preached and preached and preached. It was unfortunate that it overwelmed a potentially good story.
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.
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.
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.
I am so impressed with the political intrigue and drama as it directly relates to today's world. Joel Rosenberg is a master at telling a story but also at presenting Biblical truths through believable characters. This book will not only inspire you but will educate you in a way that you least expect to be educated; through story-telling. I couldn't wait to get to the next chapter!
Christopher Lane has got to be, without a doubt, one of the most fabulous audio story tellers out there. Everyone of his characters comes alive through his voice. It is hard to believe that he can create all of those voices and make each one sound unique! Amazing narration!
I plan on giving this book to all of my friends and family to listen to! Thank you audible and Joel Rosenberg!
