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.
Action & Religion
Joel C. Rosenberg is highly respected for his thrilling and historically accurate portrayals of the Middle East and high tensions in global politics. His Twelth Imam Series has been superb thusfar. Having said that, a caution to those reading this particular work: it should be listed as Christian reading. For those of you who do not choose to have Christianity as the backstory, choose another book. I am disappointed that Rosenberg has opted to assume the pulpit in this issue. It diminishes the flow of the narrative, and looses a large portion of his reading audience who look forward to his CIA political thriller prowess.
