The Tehran Initiative

Front Cover
Tyndale House Publishers, 2011 - Fiction - 462 pages
Retailers Choice Award winner, 2012The world is on the brink of disaster and the clock is ticking. Iran has just 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 bring about 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 economy to 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.

Really enjoying this series. Certainly feels very relevant and realistic. I sometimes got confused whether events were from the book or from the newscast. Read full review

Wow. What an incredible book.....this stuff is happening today in the real world. The last 100 pages fly by as the tension is unbelievable. I urge anyone to read the previous book and this book in this series. I cannot wait until next fall when the conclusion comes out. Read full review
