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.

    "Simply Awesome"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Damascus Countdown to be better than the print version?

    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


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Damascus Countdown?

    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.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    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.


    If you could rename Damascus Countdown, what would you call it?

    Twelfth Imam Goes Down -- he was the essence of evil. Glad to see him go.


    Any additional comments?

    Lots of page-turning tension. I now have no more fingernails, but it was worth it. My favorite book of 2013 so far.

    "Not a thriller!"

    The story line had great potential. However, I feel it was written for born again Christians. If I wanted to sit through over 10 hours of preaching, I'd have bought something else!.

    "Compelling and feels so real "
    Would you listen to Damascus Countdown again? Why?

    I think I could...it has stuck in my mind and every time something happens in the news it brings me back to this series


    Any additional comments?

    This is a must read if you want to understand this world we live in and how with God's help we can all be saved and if we can be a small part of showing love to those who hate us, maybe God will smile down on us and free us of all this turmoil in the world

    "For Christians only"

    I read the first in the series. While the intrigue of the Middle East was interesting, I do not agree that Jesus is the only savior or that one must give up their heart and fully love Jesus. I found this offensive . Since the Caliphate did not want to destroy India or China, I find the implication that Muslims are all evil repugnant and detrimental to human evolution. If you are an alt right Christian, this series is for you. Otherwise,it's terrible.

    "Absolutely Thrilling!!"

    Joel C Rosenberg is by far one of the best spy thriller novelists I have ever read! His trilogy of the 12th Imam is incredibly well written! The descriptions are so vivid you are watching the story unfold in front of your eyes-- feeling everything the characters are feeling --getting so deep into the story it's like you're hovering above watching it unfold. As everyone knows the reader can make or break a story and this reader rivals the storyline of the book! He brings each character to life with its own voice and accent... and his performance far exceeds that of any reader I have never heard especially in a spy novel. I am absolutely looking forward to reading more books by Joel C Rosenberg!

    "Worth the credits"

    This has been by far the best audio book I've listened to since joining Audible. The story was well written, and the narration was the best I've heard. I'm looking forward to listening to more of Mr. Rosenburg's novels.

    "Insightful, realistic, inspiring, sobering"

    Soooo good!! Joel C. Rosenburg is an excellent writer who has an insightful perspective on the situation in the Middle East. This trilogy is intense, realistic and eye-opening. And the beauty and power of Christ shines through in all in a real way. Well done, Joel!
