Product Description

All eyes are on the Middle East. Israel has successfully launched a first strike on Iran, taking out all of their nuclear sites and six of their nuclear warheads-and causing The Twelfth Imam to order a full-scale retaliation. US President William Jackson threatens to support a UN Security Council resolution condemning the Jewish State for unprovoked and unwarranted acts of aggression.Meanwhile, CIA operative David Shirazi has infiltrated the Iranian regime and intercepted information indicating that two Iranian nuclear warheads survived the attack and have been moved to a secure and undisclosed location. In danger not only from the ongoing missile strikes on Iran but also from the increasingly hostile and suspicious governments of multiple countries, David and his team are in a race against time to find the remaining nuclear warheads before disaster strikes.

U.S. President William Jackson threatens to support a U.N. Security Council resolution condemning the Jewish State for unprovoked and unwarranted acts of aggression.

Meanwhile, CIA operative David Shirazi has infiltrated the Iranian regime and intercepted information indicating that two Iranian nuclear warheads survived the attack and have been moved to a secure and undisclosed location. In danger not only from the ongoing missile strikes on Iran but also from the increasingly hostile and suspicious governments of multiple countries, David and his team are in a race against time to find the remaining nuclear warheads before disaster strikes.

    Damascus Countdown is a fictionalized account of a war between Israel and much of the rest of the Middle East, which has banded together to form an alliance called the Caliphate. Eerily, it could very well be telling the story of todays conflict as much as a fictional future conflict, as it deals with the issues of the justice of preemptive strikes and civilian injuries and casualties, and the reaction of non-involved countries and their dilemma of joining a war thats not their own. But when a significant part of the world is at war, can any other caring nation claim to be noninvolved?

    This is the 3rd and final installment of series of international thrillers by this author, but I had no difficulty jumping in at the end and understanding the story. There are about a half-dozen storylines, one from each country, running simultaneously, but they are well headlined to avoid confusion. The characters were wonderfully detailed, even in brief scenarios, so that they were very relatable (in some places, in a detestable way). This was a compelling, hard-to-put-down read that kept me on the edge of my seat to the very end. A must-read!

    Damascus Countdown was just an average read for me. There was lots of action but to me it was just too much action. There was a lot of jumping around locations and characters that I couldn't keep up what going on and often found myself confused. I loved other novels by this author, but this one was not a good fit for me.

    3 stars.

    Damascus Countdown was the first of Joel Rosenberg's books I have read. I was impressed with the relevance of his story as he wrote of end time events involving Israel, Iran, Syria, the USA, CIA, and top scientists as well as Islamic religious leaders. This is an intriguing and suspenseful novel as the threat of nuclear war is being posed against Israel. A key character, David Shirazi, works tirelessly with his team to locate missing nuclear warheads to hopefully avoid their devastating use. He seeks to thwart the plans of the enemy and gain information by infiltrating their inner circles as one of them. He has times of failure when he and his team are getting nowhere; his contacts in the inner circle fail to respond; all seems futile. The agencies of espionage in Israel and the USA work continuously to gather information to help and protect their agents. The blind faith of those who look for Islam's messiah in the Mahdi is portrayed as they stop at nothing to succeed. The coldhearted executions that take place when someone is suspected of being a traitor is quite unsettling. Then the counter to this is the great faith in the true Messiah, Jesus Christ. Many of the characters are faithful followers of Him. There are many testimonies to Him and His saving grace; witness made to those who need Him who are facing certain death. The personal side of David's life and others is also portrayed as Rosenberg shares the emotional ties to family and friends; and one special lady in particular. Timing is everything for all the events and the story holds your attention aptly. Also it unfolds with great attention to detail as the attacks/battles of the war are described. A great read! Amazing how it ties in with our current history as Israel is in the center of our news today. A very probable story, indeed.

    Suspenseful and riveting. Edge-of-your-seat intense. One certain to fight to hang in there with because it was well worth it. Reads like the makings of a really good television drama show. Only wish I read faster. Although, in the last 20 some last of the chapters, I did read in a blur, wanting to hurry and see the events unfold as quickly as possible. Exciting and easy to follow and understand. Engaging. Eerily frightening. Surprisingly heartfelt, compassionate, emphatic, and sincere but not too emotional. Very detailed and specific, but not overly done. Believable, realistic and likely. Encourages the heart to open up about God's overall possibilities for us. A book I am grateful to have jumped into!

    This is not my style of book at all, though I will say it did captivate and hold my attention. I won't be real quick to read another of his books right away though. I read this one only because I am part of Tyndale's Summer Reading Program. That said, I would call this book extremely well-written. Joel Rosenberg flipped from character to character and place to country and back again and kept everything well organized and easy to follow. That was no small accomplishment. I would recommend this to anyone who likes Biblical prophecy and eschatology or to someone who just like action packed war books.
