David Shirazi (aka Reza Tabrizi) is a CIA operative who will stop at nothing to disrupt Iran’s nuclear weapons program. Iran’s prime minister wants to destroy the U.S.A. and Israel, Israel’s prime minister insists that they need destroy Iran’s nuclear sites, and the president of the United States thinks they need to negotiate to find peace. In addition to all that a mysterious man is claiming to be the Islamic messiah, the Mahdi or the Twelfth Imam. Soon stories begin spreading about his miracles. Is he the one they’ve been waiting for?
The Twelfth Imam is a great book filled with lots of international intrigue. It kept me on the edge of my seat the whole time, not wanting to put it down. (Though I had to because of chores, eating, and sleeping… don’t you hate it when life gets in the way of a good book?) I would definitely recommend it to anyone in need of a good book.
