Damascus Countdown by Joel Rosenberg is the third book in the Twelfth Imam Series, also known as David Shirazi series Book #3. My reviews of the first two books can be found here and here. This book is incredible. It concludes the story of David Shirazi and his mission to foil the plan of the Muslim Messiah in destroying Israel.
Incredibly, this book is more action-packed than the first two in the series. I seriously couldn't put the book down. If this book were a movie you'd have white knuckles from gripping the seat. The story is wonderful and moves very well. Most of the chapters in this book weren't long which was nice since I'm the mother of a newborn and sometimes was unable to sit and read this book for long bouts of time. I read it every chance I got though. Mr Rosenberg knows a lot about the Middle Eastern cultures and countries. I came to the conclusion whilst reading this book, that I know very little about Iran, Iraq, Syria, Israel and the Middle East in general.
I was drawn into the story and became very attached to the characters. I even found myself crying and Praising God by the end of the book as if the story were true. You cannot go wrong reading this series. It wraps up wonderfully and leaves you wanting more. Enjoy!
