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.

Publisher's Description

2014 “Christian Retailing’s Best” award finalist!
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. 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.

Endorsements

"I've loved reading Joel Rosenberg's books in the past- Epicenter especially comes to mind-and I can't wait to read this new one, Damascus Countdown. Joel is a stalwart and faithful friend of the State of Israel. He's a good personal friend. And he's a great writer. He understands the grave dangers posed by Iran and Syria, and he's been a bold and courageous voice for true peace and security in the Middle East. If you haven't read his work yet, I hope you will." - Danny Ayalon, Israeli Deputy Foreign Minister

"Joel Rosenberg is one of the most knowledgeable people writing about the Middle East that I've had the honor to meet. He has a particularly clear understanding of what is going on in today's Iran and Syria and the grave threat these two countries pose to the rest of the world. His is an important voice in a sea of misdirected and erroneous information that distorts the truth about the realities of these countries' intentions." - Reza Kahlili, former CIA operative in Iran and best-selling author of A Time to Betray: The Astonishing Double Life of a CIA Agent Inside the Revolutionary Guards of Iran

"Joel Rosenberg is unsurpassed as the writer of fiction thrillers! Sometimes I have to remind myself to breathe as I read one of his novels, because I find myself holding my breath in suspense as I turn the pages. Because his story lines are based on Biblical prophecy, they have a ring of truth that eerily echoes the news headlines. So I can't wait to read his latest novel that has just arrived, Damascus Countdown. Thank you, Joel, for novels that provide hours of reading pleasure…and that pack a meaningful punch!" - Anne Graham Lotz, author and speaker

"Whenever I see a new Joel Rosenberg book coming out, I know I need to clear time on my calendar. His penetrating knowledge of all things Mid-eastern-coupled with his intuitive knack for high stakes intrigue-demand attention. I've read them all, and been richly rewarded. I'm especially looking forward to Damascus Countdown." - Porter Goss, former Director of the Central Intelligence Agency

"Damascus Countdown is fantastic-intense action, blistering pace, and eerie how close it is to real events in the Mideast, especially with Iran so close to the Bomb and Syria melting down! Rosenberg always keeps me riveted." - Rush Limbaugh

"Damascus Countdown will be the most chilling, pulse-pounding thriller you read this year. It will be banned and burned in Tehran and Damascus, but it should be required reading in Washington and Jerusalem. Joel Rosenberg is a good friend and a great writer and he is spot on. Nothing threatens our national security more than the mullahs of Iran and the tyrants in Syria building and deploying weapons of mass annihilation, and an American President who doesn't have the wisdom or courage to stop them in time. I've warned about this for years. Now Joel paints an eerie, terrifying, page-turning picture of a worst-case scenario coming to pass. You have to read this book, and then pray it never happens." - Former Senator Rick Santorum

"Joel Rosenberg is the most knowledgeable and well-rounded author in America today regarding the realities of current events in the Mideast, North Africa, and the Persian Gulf. In fact, Joel is a true authority on the geopolitics and history of those regions, and speaks extensively about the serious threats that the Radical elements of Islam present to America and our close ally, Israel….Joel has an incredible ability to write both fiction and non-fiction in a way that the reader senses that they are part of the plot and often, on the front line. If you want to get a better understanding of what is unfolding in the 'epicenter' of today's world, let Joel take you on an incredible and exciting journey."- Lt.-General (ret.) Jerry Boykin, former commander of Delta Force and former U.S. Deputy Undersecretary of Defense for Intelligence

"If there were a Forbes 400 list of great current novelists, Joel Rosenberg would be among the top ten. More than a decade ago we kicked off one of his masterpieces, The Last Jihad, at a book party at the Forbes Media headquarters. Today millions see what we saw then, one of the most entertaining and intriguing authors of international political thrillers in the country. No wonder Joel has sold nearly three million copies – his novels are un-put-downable including his new one, Damascus Countdown!" - Steve Forbes

    Very satisfied reading; beginning, middle and end

    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.

    A takeout of Iranian nukes by Israel starts it off and it just goes crazy from there. Imagine what it may look like if that were to happen. Joel Rosenberg has written such a novel. In it he gives the multiples story lines and what it may look like should the Middle Eastern conflict turn into more than just talking points on TV.

    While I did find it slightly cookie cutter, it was still an interesting, fast paced read.

    Fasten your seatbelts before starting this book! The beginning is a little hard to completely follow - I didn't realize this was the 3rd book in a series when I began - but after the first few pages it is a book you can't set down! What will David do next? Will he save the day and keep Israel from being leveled by a nuclear warhead? I have recently heard a lot about drones in the news - I had no idea they could do so much. But I loved how real Birjandi seemed - though blind and old, he continued to study and preach god's word and was just so faithful. And I so identified with David when he realized he was in a life and death situation and had never told his buddies about Christ - I'm not in that situation but I don't think to ask those around me if they know where they will be if they died now. Excellent book! I can't wait to read Mr. Rosenberg's next book.

    Damascus Countdown is the third and final book in the riveting political series by Joel C. Rosenburg. Immediately after it was released I checked our local library and put it on hold. It was so popular I was about the fifth in line. In the meantime I reread the other two in the series The Twelfth Imam and The Tehran Initiative (click the book titles for my reviews of those books). I just love this series. It reads like our current headlines and is so riveting. If you enjoy political action packed books this is the series for you.

    Joel C. Rosenburg is a expert on the middle east and the volatile climate over there. He is known for writing fiction that eerily mirrors the real world. In Damascus Countdown David Shizari continues to hunt down the nuclear warheads that Iran has acquired before Israel and the US are obliterated. With more twists and turns than a country road this book will have you on the edge of your seat. I can't recommend them highly enough. You will not be disappointed. :)
