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!

I want a story, NOT a sermon!

The first 20 minutes or so were a great buildup style terrorist plot, then...... The story gave constant muslim quips to show how insane they were, you know, how can any reasonable person base their life's actions on religion, then all of a sudden having the "good guys" suddenly reciting verses from the Bible which sound oh so more reasonable.

If it's an evangelical novel then state it in the description so the general public doesn't waste credits on this stuff. If I want Bible study then I'll get the Bible. If I want a terrorist novel I want a terrorist novel. Seriously not happy.

On that note, the narrator was good I guess, I'm just upset I bought a book and got preached to.
