Loved the book. Wonderful narrator. My only disappointment is that I haven't found a sequel the ending would lead you to believe that one is coming.

The Twelfth Imam Collection.
Joel C. Christopher Lane. Discover a hidden conspiracy, a shadow government, and the CIA analyst who uncovers it all in this complete box set of The Days of Noah series by Mark Goodwin. The United States stands as the wealthiest, most powerful nation on the face of the earth.
Without a functioning monetary system to purchase basic goods, society rapidly descends into abject chaos. Protests, looting, and bloodletting take the place of civility in a country which becomes thoroughly unhinged. After a massive wave of disappearances, year-old CIA analyst Everett Carroll finally believes what he's been told about the biblical prophecy of the rapture. But will he be able to survive the gauntlet of destruction known as the Great Tribulation? Seven seals, seven trumpets, and seven vials of God's wrath are about to be poured out upon the earth, and woe to the inhabitants thereof!
Global currencies have collapsed, famine and plague have claimed the lives of millions, and the world has crumbled into chaos. Inside the Revolution takes you inside the winner-take-all battle for the hearts, minds and souls of the people of the Middle East.
It explains the implications of each movement, the importance of each leader, and does through not only through the lenses of politics and economics but through the third lens of Scripture. Today, wars and revolutions define the modern Middle East, and many believe the worst is yet to come. The deck is stacked against year-old Ava. Trouble seems to follow Ava where ever she goes. The onset of the Second American Civil War should be no different. Life only gets more difficult for Ava when she spots a sinister figure watching her every move.
But global forces are mounting and corrupt government leaders will go to any extreme to prevent an impending economic catastrophe. Cyber-security analyst Kate McCarthy knows something ominous is about to happen in the US banking system. Access to cash disappears and credit cards become worthless. Desperate consumers are left with no means to purchase food, fuel, and basic necessities.
Society melts down instantly and the threat of starvation brings out the absolute worst humanity has to offer. Court Gentry is known as The Gray Man - a legend in the covert realm, moving silently from job to job, accomplishing the impossible, and then fading away. And he always hits his target. But there are forces more lethal than Gentry in the world.
And in their eyes, Gentry has just outlived his usefulness. Now, he is going to prove that for him, there's no gray area between killing for a living-and killing to stay alive. Before he was considered a CIA superagent, before he was thought of as a terrorist's worst nightmare, and before he was both loathed and admired by the politicians on Capitol Hill, Mitch Rapp was a gifted college athlete without a care in the world Tensions are rising in the Middle East.
And amid it all, rumors are swirling throughout the region of a mysterious religious cleric claiming to be the Islamic messiah known as the Mahdi or the Twelfth Imam. Word of his miracles, healings, signs, and wonders is spreading like wildfire. CIA operative David Shirazi was born for this moment.
First, the caveat. This is the first book in a series about the possible coming of Armageddon.

Not the secular type of Armageddon as in One Second After, but the religious type of Armageddon and thus the book comes with a religious viewpoint. That view is not heavy-handed but there are what appear to be miracles as well as visions in this book and readers may want to know about that before purchasing the book. Further this book is about good and evil in the traditional absolute sense, not the relative sense, and is clear about which is which.
I find that view refreshing but some readers may find it upsetting. This book is characterized as a political thriller but,it is not, like most, full of murder, mayhem, spying and miraculous escapes.
The Twelfth Imam
This book is a wonderful story of the escape of two families from revolutionary Iran, the rise to adulthood of what come to be the main characters in the series and the simultaneous effort of the Iranian government to develop and use nuclear weapons. Toward the end of the book, as the Iranian efforts meet with success, the various characters end up coming together in one form or another. Do not mistake what I am saying. The main strength of this book is the development of the characters of some of the main people in the series.
Their stores feel real, the characters seem real and the author has done a wonderful job of creating characters who we can and do care about. The story of both David and his girlfriend Marseilles, is sweet and as American as any childhood from that time.
What’s Rubio reading? “The Twelfth Imam,” a thriller about Apocalyptic Islam.
Their families seem real and their problems seem real. The Iranian characters seem less real but only, I suspect, because their world seems less real to those of us in the West than the world we are familiar with.

But the book is sprinkled with what are viewed as miracles by those involved and those events set the course of the characters as they grow to adulthood. The book is complete stand-alone story and can be read as just that. Many events are left untold since there are more books to come in this series, but we are not left at the precipice wondering what happened during the last set of events. I cared enough about the people involved to want to buy and read the next book in the series in fact I first bought the second book in the series and, while I fell in love with it, I realized that parts of the book made no sense without having read the first book in the series.
I then put it aside and bought and read this book. Christopher Lane, who narrates this book, does a wonderful job. The characters are easily recognized by their voices without us having to be told who they are. He does not seem to stumble over either the Iranian or Arabic names and his presentation is clear, clean and engaging.
