This is the perfect book for anyone who enjoys political thrillers - which is why I'd rate it five stars in that particular genre. Well written, well thought out, its focus on Iran is almost prescient and that's what's particularly appealing in this book. I really liked it and enjoyed the rising suspense, especially at the end.

This story was so realistic that it was as if fiction became reality. Badal's writing is strong and exciting. I have come to care about the Danforth family and can't wait for the next book in the series, Evil Deeds, which is actually the first in the Danforth series, and which I understand will be released this month.

The Nostradamus Secret is another winner from author Joseph Badal with an intriguing plot and the usual fast paced non-stop action of this series of thrillers.

Intricate and exciting

Scared the daylights out of me in the beginning thinking that such a plan could be executed in our country. However, Bob Danforth is brought back and he and many others need luck to go with hard work to thwart the Master's plan. Could not put it down.

Very well written!!

Very detail oriented, very well researched and just a very scary story, simply because there really are people like this in our world. Well done looking forward to the next story.

Wow - talk about a page-turner! This book is relevant to our world today, considering what's happening politically in the Middle East. It's a thriller, a mystery, and starts with a great teaser- a scene staged in a hidden chamber in a musty monastery in the middle ages. The characters in the book are fully developed and the story believable.
All of Badal's books are addictive, but this one's my favorite so far.

This author is like potato chips.

I've just finished reading book three in the Danforth Saga. It was just as good as the first two. This author is like potato chips! You can't read just one of his books. He is definitely on my favorite authors list. I got book one for my March Prime lender book. I've purchased the next three. The characters are like friends now. Kudos to Joseph Nadal.

Great read! Intelligent and pace doesn't slow down for a moment. Some of the "lost verses" that are either written or translated by the author sound a bit amateur, but who cares! excellent time-killer if you are on long haul flight or just want to "escape" for a weekend.

Hope the terrorists are not as smart as J. Nadal....

A clever and delusional terrorist implements a global scheme to take over first Iran and then the world. The plot skirts a fine line between the believable and the crazy. I enjoyed it!

Suspense with a capital "S"

The reader has to discover for themselves the intensity of the drama as they read through the clandestine intrigue that is so similar to what is found in today's news.

Did not like

This book is to me extremely fictitious, a little bit to much. I think that the fiction went to far.
