Iran is much closer to having operational nuclear weapons than the CIA believes, and Iran’s president, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, has a plan. With twelve nuclear warheads mounted on twelve missiles, he will make Iran a martyr nation; then he will lead the world’s Muslims in a holy war against the nonbelievers. However, the Americans have a secret weapon in a group of Iranian dissidents, including a brother and sister determined to avenge the death of their beloved grandfather at the hands of the religious police. They are funneling information to Tommy Carmellini. They want to stop the attack before their leader launches a new world war. Will the U.S. government believe the information they are providing, and can the Americans prevent the Israelis from taking matters into their own hands, which could prove disastrous?

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Domenico | 2/13/2014

    " A classic Coonts military/spy thriller that's a little too close to being ripped from the headlines. The threat if a nuclear Iran scares me even more than before. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Greg Buxton | 2/5/2014

    " Mahmoud Ahmadinejad was portrayed as all-zealot with no other shading. No real intelligence, just cruelty. Otherwise the story was quite fun. Everyone loves Mrs. Carmellini's little boy Tommy. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Rod | 1/24/2014

    " My advice is pass this one by "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Brian | 1/19/2014

    " This is a shoot-em-up of a recurring series with Jake Grafton. Plot revolves around Iranian nuclear missiles. Good story line and well written. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Edward | 1/10/2014

    " I haven't read Coonts in a decade, but I enjoyed this one more than I expected. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Steven | 12/25/2013

    " One of his best! Interesting take on future fiction regarding Iran "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Roberta | 12/21/2013

    " This book was written in 2009. On the first page Publisher Weekly states: "One can only hope the U.S. president, the head of the C.I.A., and the Israeli prime minister will have this book on their nightstands for easy reference in case fiction turns to reality, an all-too-real possibility as evidenced by recent headlines." Fast forward to the current year 2012. Some of the fiction described here is now, in fact, reality - from the happenings in the Strait of Hormuz to Israel considering a preemptive strike against Iran. The suspense, as it's coincidental to current events, is hair raising. The drama occurs in the Middle East, primarily between Israel, Iran, and C.I.A. operatives stationed there. Detail describes the underground bunkers throughout Iran and the lengths their leader will go to gain the world's respect through the use of nuclear warheads. A gripping book when it was first published, a must-read in 2012. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Leo | 12/17/2013

    " Iran, Afganistan, Pakistan and all the other stans are hot topic for spy fiction. This one is a thriller from begining to end. The spy in Iran, Tommy Carmelinni, does not get into to much trouble this time even though what he does is risky business. Under the direction of Admiral Jake Grafton everything flow developing in the neutralization of the nuclear warheads and the organization of a new goverment in Iran. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Pat Murray | 12/12/2013

    " I saw the book on the shelf at the store. The plot description made me buy it. The book was a page turner dealing with what could be an actual historical event. It held my interest andI read it in 2 days. I would read more of his books. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Don Kent | 12/10/2013

    " Not his best but a good yarn. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Bubb | 11/19/2013

    " Interesting use of current public figures as characters. A bit heavy on the xenophobia "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Marty | 10/27/2013

    " exactly and entirely what you expect. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Derek | 9/8/2013

    " Good start and finish. Enjoyed reading this. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kristi | 5/27/2013

    " THe latest in the Jake Grafton/Tommy Carmellini series. I found the first half confusing, probably because I was trying to read a paragraph here and there over the holidays. Second half was much better and classic Coonts. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Eric | 10/4/2012

    " This was a pretty typical Stephen Coonts book where the heroes end up pulling out the victory in the end! It has been a little while since I have read any of the Stephen Coonts book and I did enjoy it. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Liz | 7/23/2012

    " I've only read two chapters of this book and it is boring me to death so I am putting it down. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Sheryl | 7/16/2012

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Bill | 6/20/2012

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Andrea | 5/10/2012

    " I think I liked this book, I just didn't know what was going on half the time. Keeping all the characters straight was a major challenge. But I like it enough to want to finish it . . . "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jonathan | 3/6/2012

    " Picked it up in an airport when I ran out of reading material. Had fun with it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Elyse | 2/24/2012

    " A little too much technical detail in the final pages for me; I'm just ready for action and wrap-up at that point. Otherwise, a good read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sue Ansell | 11/23/2011

    " Good book but a lot of the characters are confusing since it's set in Iran and their names are foreign. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Scott | 11/13/2011

    " Typical Coonts, slow start, fairly technical, but a very nice downhill finish. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Marc Nadeau | 11/3/2011

    " This another in the series of Jake Grafton/Tommy Carmellini novels by Stephen Coonts. It offers a good mix of plot, anti-terrorism, military action, spy intrigue, and flying to be entertaining for most of us with a Y chromosome. It is an entertaining read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Leonsky Grange | 8/22/2011

    " Not as good as prior books. A lot of action, but too much description of details "

    " I'm actually still reading this one... I still love the characters, but this one has been a bit of a pill to read; I actually put it down for awhile and am just picking it up to try again, thinking maybe I just wasn't giving it my full attention. Will edit this after I finish. "
