As the apocalyptic leaders of Iran call for the
annihilation of Israel and the U.S., CIA operative David
Shirazi is sent into Tehran with one objective: use all
means necessary to disrupt Iran’s nuclear weapons program,
without leaving American fingerprints and without triggering
a regional war. At extreme personal risk, Shirazi executes
A native Farsi speaker whose family escaped from Iran in
1979, he couldn’t be better prepared for the mission. But
none of his training has prepared Shirazi for what will
happen next. An obscure religious cleric is suddenly hailed
throughout the region as the Islamic messiah known as the
Mahdi or the Twelfth Imam. News of his miracles, healings,
signs, and wonders spreads like wildfire, as do rumors of a
new and horrific war.
With the prophecy of the Twelfth Imam seemingly fulfilled,
Iran’s military prepares to strike Israel and bring about
the End of Days. Shirazi must take action to save his
country and the world, but the clock is ticking.
