Review of "Damascus Countdown" by Joel Rosenberg

The conclusion to "The Twelfth Imam" and "The Tehran Initiative", "Damascus Countdown" is the last book in this trilogy and I for one am sad to see it come to an end.  CIA operative David Shirazi, aka Reza Tabrizi is still undercover in Iran immediately following Israel's air strike.  The strike takes out much of the threat, but when you are dealing with nuclear weapons, "we got almost all of the nuclear bombs" is certainly not enough.  David and his team are directed to use all means necessary to find the last nuclear warheads and thwart the Mahdi's attempt at genocide of the Israeli nation.

Joel Rosenberg is an excellent author, and this was definitely a page turner.  I also appreciated that the locations were identified throughout the book as this is a multi-layered plot with many characters and it helped me stay on track.

I recommend this entire series.  You won't be disappointed.
