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.

Again I was on pins and needles a lot of the time

Never read a book that presented impossible situations that I know will kill the main man but a totally believable solution comes out of nowhere
Mr Rosenberg thinks of everything. I’ve learned so much geopolitical history and continue to go to iPad to look up various things mentioned in book. Few books have ever made me do that. The narrator was awesome and his accents for various nationalities was so believable but I expect only the best from mr Rosenberg and never dissatisfied. As a Christian I so appreciate the way the gospel is presented and David’s heart for it When you write a good book sex and profanity are not needed Thanks mr Rosenberg for another great story

Engaging and Realistic

I was spiritually renewed by retelling of my own redemptive experience.
I loved the writer's ability to tell the gospel message and it's power to transform lives of individuals despite the hardest of their heart.
By using fantasy ,he createsd a personal portal to the message of the cross and God's grace and mercy being open " to all ,who would receive Him". Romans.

Spectacular Finale to a great series

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Absolutely a recommendable series. Action from the get go.... Intrigue. This author can construct a sentence without filling it with expletives just for effect. Makes the story much better. I was very pleased, this being the first time I've listened to Rosenberg, I didn't know what to expect.

What did you like best about this story?

The intensity and the intertwining of the very believable characters.

Which scene was your favorite?

I think it was the rush to Damascus and all that was entailed. I became quite fond of the lead character...and he was quite a character!

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

.....and gasp outloud! We listened as we traveled. It was a great book to share with my husband!

Abridged!

It’s my own stupid fault for not double-checking, but Audible shouldn’t have mixed in the abridged version of the novel in the same group as the unabridged versions of the 2 previous novels. I was really disappointed that it was abridged, and I wonder what I missed.
