The world is on the brink of disaster and the clock is ticking. Iran hasjust conducted its first atomic weapons test. Millions of Muslims around the world are convinced their messiah—known as “the Twelfth Imam”—has just arrived on earth. Israeli leaders fear Tehran, under the Twelfth Imam’s spell, will soon launch a nuclear attack that could bringabout a second holocaust and the annihilation of Israel. The White House fears Jerusalem will strike first, launching a preemptive attack against Iran’s nuclear facilities that could cause the entire Middle East to go up in flames, oil prices to skyrocket, and the global economyto collapse. With the stakes high and few viable options left, the president of the United States orders CIA operative David Shirazi and his team to track down and sabotage Iran’s nuclear warheads before Iran or Israel can launch a devastating first strike.

The Terhan Initiative is another fast-paced, political book filled with espionage and suspense. If this is your genre style, you will not be disappointed in reading the latest from Joel Rosenberg. I know I wasn't. The fast pace starts in the very first pages and does not stop til the last ones. With each page you are drawn into a political thriller and yet will feel God's guidance of the main characters throughout the book.
A great read that I highly recommend!
