There are some stories which seem so ridiculously implausible they are laughable and a pain to read. Others, such as Damascus Countdown by Joel C. Rosenberg seem to have been ripped from the headlines of a popular newspaper. A former political columnist, Rosenberg truly understands the intricacies of relations in the Middle East. He brings a wealth of knowledge garnered from working with Israeli Deputy Prime Minister Natan Sharansky, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu intertwined with his Jewish heritage and strong Christian beliefs.
Damascus Countdown is the third book in The Twelfth Imam series. In it, David Shirazi is undercover trying to infiltrate the inner circle of the twelfth Imam. In Christianity, the twelfth Imam is recognized as the Anti-Christ. He must race against time to stop a preeminent nuclear attack from being launched against Israel. Following lesser Israeli, Iranian and American characters, Rosenberg does an excellent job of entwining their varying viewpoints of the same events as they unfold.
If you enjoy cataclysmic end times stories, or fast paced political thrillers, I would highly recommend Damascus Countdown. The book is quite able to stand alone on its own merit. Thus, it is not a requirement to have read either of the two previous books in the series.
This book is available for purchase from online retailers such as www.amazon.com Pick up your copy today.
And now for the required FTC Disclosure: I was not approached by an agent of either the publisher or author for the purpose of providing a positive review. The review copy of Damascus Countdown was actually purchased by the reviewer in order to post this review.
