Publisher Description

Book 2 in the bestselling 3-book espionage and spy thriller series that has sold 700,000 copies!

New York Times bestselling author Joel C. Rosenberg returns with a pulse-pounding tale of international intrigue that will keep you on the edge of your seat and wondering . . . what if this worst-case scenario comes true?

Is it fiction, or is it real?

The world is on the brink of disaster. Iran has just conducted its first atomic weapons test. Millions of Muslims around the world are convinced their messiah—known as the Twelfth Imam—has just arrived on earth. Israeli leaders fear Tehran, under the Twelfth Imam’s spell, will soon launch a nuclear attack that could bring about a second Holocaust and the annihilation of Israel.

The White House fears Jerusalem will strike first, launching a massive preemptive attack against Iran’s nuclear facilities that could cause the entire Middle East to go up in flames, oil prices to skyrocket, and the global economy to collapse.

With the stakes high and few viable options left, the president of the United States orders CIA operative David Shirazi and his team to track down and sabotage Iran’s nuclear warheads before Iran or Israel can launch a devastating first strike. But will they be too late?

The Coming Times

The 2nd book is awesome, the mental visual the book gives and the current times seems to fall hand and hand. Seeing how Joel used evangelism in his books is great for out reaching the lost and the compassion and love Jesus Christ continues to show no matter who you are or what you have done in the past even though this is fictional writing, I pray those that read his books will see God wants us to reach all his children that are lost and don't know him thanks again for an excellent book.

God Bless & Seek the lost, show love just as Jesus shows those who know Him

As far as I'm concerned if you could write about what literally is unraveling in this world as we speak and slap a title on it, it would be called The Twelfth Imam and The Tehran Initiative. Amazing to the point of being scary, the parallels. I have been telling everyone I know to read these books not only for entertainment but also for educational purposes!
