The world is on the brink of disaster and the clock is ticking. Iran has just conducted its first atomic weapons test. Millions of Muslims around the world are convinced their messiah —known as "the Twelfth Imam”—has just arrived on earth. Israeli leaders fear Tehran, under the Twelfth Imam's spell, will soon launch a nuclear attack that could bring about a second holocaust and the annihilation of Israel. The White House fears Jerusalem will strike first, launching a preemptive attack against Iran's nuclear facilities that could cause the entire Middle East to go up in flames, oil prices to skyrocket, and the global economy to collapse. With the stakes high and few viable options left, the president of the United States orders CIA operative David Shirazi and his team to track down and sabotage Iran's nuclear warheads before Iran or Israel can launch a devastating first strike. But will they be too late?

Once again Joel C Rosenberg takes his readers on a compelling, action-packed ride into today's current headlines. Picking up where The Twelfth Imam left off, and Iran in possession of Nuclear Weapons, Israel feels threatened that they will use it against them, and immediately following that, launch an attack against the United States fulfilling what they believe to be prophecy from the Muslim's Twelfth Imam and ushering in order once and for all for those believers in the Islamic kingdoms. Now uniting the Sunni and Shia's under one name, the nations of Kuwait, Pakistan, Sudan and Ethiopia, gather together to take on Israel and the United States and launch an all assault on the infidel nations. Egypt remains united with the US and Israel along with Bahrain for how long remains to be seen.

When the leaders of the United States, Eygpt and Israel gather in New York, the terrorist groups plan an attack during a peace summit using a rocket launcher and explosives to kill the president of all three nations. Can anyone stop this from coming true or will the Arab leaders unite in time, a rare convergence, before the moment slips away allowing Iran to unleash a genocidal apocalypse that will plunge the world into a thousand years of darkness?
