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.

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.
Say something about yourself!
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.
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.
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!
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.
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.
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.
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
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.
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.
Twelfth Imam Goes Down -- he was the essence of evil. Glad to see him go.
Lots of page-turning tension. I now have no more fingernails, but it was worth it. My favorite book of 2013 so far.
One of the first where I was disappointed #4 wasn't there to read right away.
The first two of this series. Usually you guess how it's going to end. This one left me begging for the ANSWER.
The scenes of the Messiah appearing. Are there more? Which one is he going to choose? I want the next book right away. Love this series more than any other. Hurry and write it.
No, I think the title is perfect.
Hope next book comes out soon and really don't want it to draw out. I want a good ending and hope it's what I would like but could be a big surprise.
The story was suspenseful, the subplots meshed together very well, and the narrator was quite good. But the story was spoiled to some extent by a heavy dose of religious fervor which permeated the story, and seemed inappropriate for this kind of thriller. Several parts seemed way too maudlin, like the part where CIA spies rushed to intercept an A-bomb and found time to embrace Jesus.
The story line starts full of action and details, but after chapter 11 the true purpose of the book is reveal. The author political and religious views and the event horizon and true purpose, hidden with a techno-thriller theme. He becomes extremely verbose for the purpose and in support of his personal Christian belief. The story line suffers from this as the author continue to interrupt with his religious and political overtures that add nothing but distraction to the novel.
Extract this and it's an average book...
The detail of tactics and technology. Additionally, the deep understanding of both Christian and Islam historical past.
Fan-freaking-tastic narration with enough suspense in his inflections. One of the very best narrations!!!
No...but I'm still a techno thriller , political tactical war fan.
...next book for the author should caution the reader of his intent...
