Review - Damascus Countdown

Damascus Countdown
By Joel C. Rosenberg
Publisher: Tyndale Fiction
Pub. Date: March 5, 2013
ISBN: 978-1414319704
Pages: 480


Picking up where the Tehran Initiative left off, CIA operative David Shirazi returns in the international thriller in a plot that actually could take place in real life with Israel launching a strike against Iran, destroying all of their nuclear capabilities. The current United States president, William Jackson is considering agreeing with the U.N. Security Counsel about taking action against Israel for their aggressive strike against Iran.

David Shirazi is caught between two worlds as he is a follower of the Twelfth Imam, but he is a devoted CIA agent. David and his team learn that a few Iran nuclear warheads have survived. Now they must race against time to find the missing warheads before they are launched at Israel.

I read The Twelfth Imam a few years ago, but I missed out on reading the second book, Tehran Initiative. I quickly figure out what was going on and read the book in a couple of nights. The plot is scary as hell as there is possible of an Israel/ Iran war in real life. Yes, the book is aimed for Christian readers, but mainstream readers can enjoy reading it too. Joel C. Rosenberg's books remind me of some of Tom Clancy's novels, which isn't a bad thing as I also like Clancy's books. Overall, Damascus Countdown is an intelligent, fast-paced thriller that kept me turning the pages until the very end. I recommend it to all readers.
