“Don’t you know how close we are, you fool? Don’t you know how pious we must be? He’s coming at any moment. We must be ready.” —From The Twelfth Imam

As the apocalyptic leaders of Iran call for the annihilation of Israel and the U.S., CIA operative David Shirazi is sent into Tehran with one objective: use all means necessary to disrupt Iran’s nuclear weapons program—without leaving American fingerprints, and without triggering a regional war. At extreme personal risk, Shirazi undertakes his assignment.

A native Farsi speaker whose family escaped from Iran in 1979, he couldn’t be better prepared for the mission. But none of his training has prepared Shirazi for what will happen next. An obscure religious cleric is suddenly hailed throughout the region as the Islamic messiah known as the Mahdi or the Twelfth Imam. News of his miracles, healings, signs, and wonders spreads like wildfire, as do rumors of a new and horrific war.

With the prophecy of the Twelfth Imam seemingly fulfilled, Iran’s leaders prepare to strike Israel and bring about the End of Days. Shirazi must take action, but the clock is ticking.

Another Great Book by Rosenberg.

Here is an article written by Joel Rosenberg on Egypt, The Twelfth Imam and the End Times on the Glenn Beck news site The Blaze.

This book is a must read. I just finished reading this book and I am already excited for the next book in the series. It grabs you from the first chapter and is a continuous page turner. Joel's books are extremely well written and there is never a lack for twists and hairpin plot changes.

Definite movie material! Well written, fast paced attention grabber. You'll see why Mr Joel C. Rosenberg is a Gold Medallion winner too.

A most timely and well researched addition to Mr. Rosenberg's excellent, enlightening, and pertinent novels! I couldn't stop reading!
