The debut book of the David Shirazi series written by author Joel C Rosenberg is entitled ‘The Twelfth Imam’. It was released by the Brilliance publishers in the year 2010. Its plot takes place in Tehran, Iran, and consists of the main characters as Mahdi and David Shirazi. At the start of the book’s story, it is shown that Middle East’s growing tensions start to take the form of a major problem and every other country fear that it could affect them badly. The president of Iran vows that he will annihilate US & Israel. On the other hand, Israel’s PM fears that Iran might use its nuclear weapons on his country, so he wants to work out a way to put a ban on the nuclear sites of Iran. His talks with the US president go in vain as he believes that striking the nuclear facilities is not a permanent solution to this problem, but negotiating can help bring peace. Meanwhile, a rumor spreads all over Iran that a mysterious man is claiming to be the messiah of Muslims and calls himself Mahdi or the 12th Imam. Everywhere people seem to be talking about Mahdi’s miracles, his wonders, signs, and healings, etc. The CIA sends David Shirazi to Tehran as an undercover operative. He is given the task of disrupting the program of nuclear weapons of Iran by using any or all means. David Shirazi is told to take care that he does not get caught or his cover does not get blown. The American president gives strict orders to the CIA that Iran must not come to know that he has ordered this mission or else a new apocalyptic war could erupt and it could cause them a huge loss. There is not much time left and David Shirazi is asked to make his moves quickly and bring Iran to its knees.

Another very interesting book of this series is called ‘Damascus Countdown’. The Brilliance publication released this book too in 2013. Once again, David Shirazi is shown in the lead role, working as an operative for the CIA. At the beginning of the story of the book, it is depicted that Israel launches a successful attack on Iran. The attack destroys its nuclear sites as well as their 6 nuclear warheads. William Jackson, the US president, condemns this act of Israel and threatens that he will support a resolution of the Security Council of U.N. for condemning the unwarranted and unprovoked act of aggression by them. At the same time, it is learned that Mahdi has declared to launch a genocidal attack in retaliation. In the middle of all this, David Shirazi succeeds in infiltrating the regime of Iran. He intercepts a couple of top intelligence reports that indicate that Iran’s 2 nuclear warheads have survived in the attack and they have now been shifted to an undisclosed and secure location. David Shirazi lives dangerously because of the ongoing clashes between Iran and Israel, and also due to the hostile governments of many neighboring countries. He knows he must race against the clock and find the hidden nuclear warheads as soon as possible or else a cataclysmic event will take place which even the top powers of the world will not be able to stop.
