"Joel Rosenberg is one of the most knowledgeable people writing about the Middle East that I've had the honor to meet. He has a particularly clear understanding of what is going on in today's Iran and Syria and the grave threat these two countries pose to the rest of the world. His is an important voice in a sea of misdirected and erroneous information that distorts the truth about the realities of these countries' intentions." - Reza Kahlili, former CIA operative in Iran and best-selling author of A Time to Betray: The Astonishing Double Life of a CIA Agent Inside the Revolutionary Guards of Iran
"Joel Rosenberg is unsurpassed as the writer of fiction thrillers! Sometimes I have to remind myself to breathe as I read one of his novels, because I find myself holding my breath in suspense as I turn the pages. Because his story lines are based on Biblical prophecy, they have a ring of truth that eerily echoes the news headlines. So I can't wait to read his latest novel that has just arrived, Damascus Countdown. Thank you, Joel, for novels that provide hours of reading pleasure and that pack a meaningful punch!" - Anne Graham Lotz, author and speaker
"Whenever I see a new Joel Rosenberg book coming out, I know I need to clear time on my calendar. His penetrating knowledge of all things Mid-eastern-coupled with his intuitive knack for high stakes intrigue-demand attention. I've read them all, and been richly rewarded. I'm especially looking forward to Damascus Countdown." - Porter Goss, former Director of the Central Intelligence Agency
"Damascus Countdown is fantastic-intense action, blistering pace, and eerie how close it is to real events in the Mideast, especially with Iran so close to the Bomb and Syria melting down! Rosenberg always keeps me riveted." - Rush Limbaugh
"Damascus Countdown will be the most chilling, pulse-pounding thriller you read this year. It will be banned and burned in Tehran and Damascus, but it should be required reading in Washington and Jerusalem. Joel Rosenberg is a good friend and a great writer and he is spot on. Nothing threatens our national security more than the mullahs of Iran and the tyrants in Syria building and deploying weapons of mass annihilation, and an American President who doesn't have the wisdom or courage to stop them in time. I've warned about this for years. Now Joel paints an eerie, terrifying, page-turning picture of a worst-case scenario coming to pass. You have to read this book, and then pray it never happens." - Former Senator Rick Santorum
"Joel Rosenberg is the most knowledgeable and well-rounded author in America today regarding the realities of current events in the Mideast, North Africa, and the Persian Gulf. In fact, Joel is a true authority on the geopolitics and history of those regions, and speaks extensively about the serious threats that the Radical elements of Islam present to America and our close ally, Israel .Joel has an incredible ability to write both fiction and non-fiction in a way that the reader senses that they are part of the plot and often, on the front line. If you want to get a better understanding of what is unfolding in the 'epicenter' of today's world, let Joel take you on an incredible and exciting journey."- Lt.-General (ret.) Jerry Boykin, former commander of Delta Force and former U.S. Deputy Undersecretary of Defense for Intelligence
"If there were a Forbes 400 list of great current novelists, Joel Rosenberg would be among the top ten. More than a decade ago we kicked off one of his masterpieces, The Last Jihad, at a book party at the Forbes Media headquarters. Today millions see what we saw then, one of the most entertaining and intriguing authors of international political thrillers in the country. No wonder Joel has sold nearly three million copies his novels are un-put-downable including his new one, Damascus Countdown!" - Steve Forbes

McGuiremamaColoradoAge: 35-44Gender: female4 Stars Out Of 5Real world story makes you thinkAugust 7, 2014McGuiremamaColoradoAge: 35-44Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 4I've rarely read a book with such realistic situations portrayed for the Christian in today's world. I had only put this down for a week when I was reading a shocking article about mass killings of Christians in Iraq while the world is distracted with what is happening in Gaza. It had an almost erie feeling to it as it echoes one of the sub-stories in the book related to Syria. Needless to say, it was fascinating to get a perspective on the end-times prophecies of the Bible. The only reason I'm giving it four stars instead of five is that I was missing a few components, having not read the previous books related to this series. But, I will definitely search those out now!
KarenNorfolk, VAAge: 45-54Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5An exciting story!July 27, 2014KarenNorfolk, VAAge: 45-54Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Damascus Countdown is a fictionalized account of a war between Israel and much of the rest of the Middle East, which has banded together to form an alliance called the Caliphate. Eerily, it could very well be telling the story of todays conflict as much as a fictional future conflict, as it deals with the issues of the justice of preemptive strikes and civilian injuries and casualties, and the reaction of non-involved countries and their dilemma of joining a war thats not their own. But when a significant part of the world is at war, can any other caring nation claim to be noninvolved?
This is the 3rd and final installment of series of international thrillers by this author, but I had no difficulty jumping in at the end and understanding the story. There are about a half-dozen storylines, one from each country, running simultaneously, but they are well headlined to avoid confusion. The characters were wonderfully detailed, even in brief scenarios, so that they were very relatable (in some places, in a detestable way). This was a compelling, hard-to-put-down read that kept me on the edge of my seat to the very end. A must-read!

There was lots of action but to me it was just too much action. There was a lot of jumping around locations and characters that I couldn't keep up what going on and often found myself confused. I loved other novels by this author, but this one was not a good fit for me.
VivianBirmingham, ALAge: 55-65Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Excellent reading!July 23, 2014VivianBirmingham, ALAge: 55-65Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Damascus Countdown was the first of Joel Rosenberg's books I have read. I was impressed with the relevance of his story as he wrote of end time events involving Israel, Iran, Syria, the USA, CIA, and top scientists as well as Islamic religious leaders. This is an intriguing and suspenseful novel as the threat of nuclear war is being posed against Israel. A key character, David Shirazi, works tirelessly with his team to locate missing nuclear warheads to hopefully avoid their devastating use. He seeks to thwart the plans of the enemy and gain information by infiltrating their inner circles as one of them. He has times of failure when he and his team are getting nowhere; his contacts in the inner circle fail to respond; all seems futile. The agencies of espionage in Israel and the USA work continuously to gather information to help and protect their agents. The blind faith of those who look for Islam's messiah in the Mahdi is portrayed as they stop at nothing to succeed. The coldhearted executions that take place when someone is suspected of being a traitor is quite unsettling. Then the counter to this is the great faith in the true Messiah, Jesus Christ. Many of the characters are faithful followers of Him. There are many testimonies to Him and His saving grace; witness made to those who need Him who are facing certain death. The personal side of David's life and others is also portrayed as Rosenberg shares the emotional ties to family and friends; and one special lady in particular. Timing is everything for all the events and the story holds your attention aptly. Also it unfolds with great attention to detail as the attacks/battles of the war are described. A great read! Amazing how it ties in with our current history as Israel is in the center of our news today. A very probable story, indeed.
