Book Review - The Damascus Countdown by Joel Rosenberg

Third in a Trilogy, Exciting until the End

I had a lot invested in this series and it did not let me down.

If you have not read The Twelfth Iman and The Tehran Initiative, stop reading.

This is the last book in the trilogy and like the second book, continues the story of David Shirazi, trying to stop Iran from launching a nuclear war as part of the End of Days. While as an NOC (Non Operative Cover) for the CIA, he was able to thwart most of Iran's plan, the leaders have a few other things planned, including alliances with other countries to absorb their nuclear aresenals. The clock is ticking as David must find the last two remaining warheads that are set to attack Israel and set off a world war.

As mentioned in the other reviews, these books are Christian fiction and often refer to the New Testament, being Born Again, and accepting Jesus as a savior. If that is not your belief I think you can still read these books and enjoy them, as I did, because the rest of the plot is so compelling. Especially in light of current day politics, and efforts by the U.S. to come to terms with Iran, I think that this is a timely tale.
