Joel Rosenberg has hit another home run. This book is a continuation of the Twelfth Imam. Mr. Rosenberg is uncanny in describing current events before they happen, I can't wait for the next book in the series.

An excellent summer thrill ride
David Shirazi is back! And so is the other cast of characters in the second installment of Rosenberg's new political thriller series which could have easily been plucked from today's headlines. The Tehran Initiative sees the return of CIA operative Shirazi working undercover to foil the plans of Iran's leadership to initiate a pre-emptive nuclear strike against Israel. Shirazi equally plays his role well as a government operative working under the auspices of the CIA and under the guise of a telecommunications salesman for an international company, seeking to provide Iran with a new communications infrastructure for their new leadership, which has bas been essentially taken over by the purported Twelfth Imam, miraculously revealing himself as the long awaited Muslim Messiah. Reminiscent of a charismatic leader who is essentially handed over a kingdom, the Imam poses a formidable threat in many respects, not just politically, but to followers of assorted religions as well. Mandated by his government handlers, Shirazi battles not only his clearly identifiable enemies, but more importantly, his inner struggles to learn the truth of who really is the Messiah. A great addition to the series, and it was thoroughly enjoyed, particularly the analytic skills demonstrated by Shirazi's love interest, Marseille Harper, who discovers a secret about Shirazi which has a profound impact. Bring on the third installment Mr. Rosenberg!
