Publisher's Summary

Tensions are rising in the Middle East. Iran’s president vows to annihilate the United States and Israel. Israel’s prime minister says someone must hit Iran’s nuclear sites “before it’s too late”. The American president warns against a preemptive strike on Iran’s nuclear facilities and says negotiations are the key to finding peace.

And amid it all, rumors are swirling throughout the region of a mysterious religious cleric claiming to be the Islamic messiah known as the Mahdi or the Twelfth Imam. Word of his miracles, healings, signs, and wonders is spreading like wildfire.

CIA operative David Shirazi was born for this moment. He is recruited and sent into Tehran with one objective: use all means necessary to disrupt Iran’s nuclear weapons program, without leaving American fingerprints and without triggering an apocalyptic new war.

But time is running out.

    "Good book"

    It stops quickly, but it is a series and I expected it to end this way. Other books are like this too.

    Story
    "JUST THE BEGINNING!!!!!!"
    What did you love best about The Twelfth Imam?

    I have read all three. Couldn't put it down and had to read the next. It left so many questions and didn't know where it was heading.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    All the characters were important in their need to keep it off kilter.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes because it was a story in itself but it left so many openings for "what's coming next."


    Any additional comments?

    Second book is even better....third book makes me hunger for the fourth book. So many questions, so much left undone and unsaid. PLEASE JOEL WHERE IS THE NEXT BOOK IN THIS SERIES???

    What made the experience of listening to The Twelfth Imam the most enjoyable?

    I am listening on Audible and got to the end and I don't have the next in the series yet, Oh me I can't wait.Great Storyline and Great NarratorThank You


    What did you like best about this story?

    The Christian concept and on the edge of your seat story.

    No


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Can't tell because that would give this part away.

    "truly incredible,"

    great story.... so realistic. Keeps you wondering if it could be real.
    Fantastic narration . And, as frustrating as it is to be left hanging at the end, it is a wonderful ending.

    Story
    "Gripping recommend!"

    A friend of mine has been reading Rosenberg for years, but I didn't listen too much to her raves.
    Now I know first hand why she raves.
    This is an excellent book with much insight on Rosenberg's part. The characters were strong and evoked emotion, positive and negative in me.
    Some parts were hard to listen to because they were so heartbreaking.
    Really eye opening subject matter, well written and flows well. I will be reading more of Rosenberg!

    "Entertaining but scary"

    An interesting view inside radical Islam and their view of endtime theology. Great story interwoven.

    Some odd voices chosen for female characters though.

    "Great story abs performance."

    I love Joel Rosenberg, and this story doesn't disappoint. It's a great action adventure with realistic middle east prognostication - in this case Iran. My only complaint is that it ended too abruptly.
