Publisher's Summary

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 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?

Rosenberg does it again - couldn't put it down!

I've listened to all of Rosenberg's political fiction and have enjoyed every book. If you haven't listened toThe Twelfth Imam, I recommend that you get it first as this one is a sequel, continuing the adventures of CIA asset David Shirazi. Shirazi, born in the US to Iranian parents who fled the revolution, infliltrates Iran at the highest levels and uncovers a terrible plot which he works hard to subvert. The Twelfth Imam, or Madi (sp.) has formed a caliphate consisting of most middle eastern countries. While posing as a religious figure, it's obvious he has nothing but evil on his mind, including the destruction of Israel and western society. This book, like other Rosenberg thrillers will hold your attention and make it difficult to get any sleep as you won't want to stop listening....The narrator was very good, using different accents and handling male and female voices equally well. Get it now!

Worth a credit - educational, suspense and compell

If you could sum up The Tehran Initiative in three words, what would they be?

Joel Rosenberg skillfully weaves the feelings, complexities and insights of Christianity and Muslims into an exciting, cutting-edge political thriller. The characters are believable and the story has a interesting underlying love story. I recommend this book if you want to learn a bit more about the Middle East and what "could" be going on.

Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

Yes, it was energizing.

What about Christopher Lane’s performance did you like?

Well narrated, he added depth to the story.
