Wow! This book reads more like fact then fiction with today's headlines, "Tension rises in the Middle East as the leaders of Iran call for the destruction of Israel and the United States...."
In "The Twelfth Imam," tensions do rise as radical leaders of Iran are fixed on their "divine" responsibility to usher in their Messiah, the twelfth Imam by calling for the destruction of Israel and the United States.
David Shirazi, a disguised CIA operative is sent into the heart of Tehran to interrupt Iran's nuclear weapons program and stop Iran's plans to kill millions.
Soon rumors spread like wildfire across the Middle East that a religious leader has begun performing miracles and healings and is the prophesized Islamic messiah known as the Mahdi or the Twelfth Imam.
David Shirazi must act fast to save his country and the world as Iran prepares to strike Israel and bring about the End of Days....
According to the Shiite version of Islam the 12th descendant of Mohammed, known as the 12th Imam or the Mahdi, went into hiding some 1300 years ago. He is said to have gone into what Shiites call occultation, a kind of suspended state from which it is believed he will return. Shiites believe he will reappear before the Day of Judgment alongside prophet Isa, (Jesus) and will rid the world of wrongdoing, injustice and tyranny.
