Iran is much closer to having operational nuclear weapons than the CIA believes and its president, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, has a plan. With twelve nuclear warheads mounted on twelve missiles, he will make Iran a martyr nation--and lead the world's Muslims in a holy war.

But the Americans have a secret weapon in a group of Iranian dissidents, including a brother and sister determined to avenge the death of a family member at the hands of the religious police. Their mission: to funnel information to special agent Tommy Carmellini and thwart Ahmadinejad's efforts.

But will Admiral Jake Grafton and the U.S. government believe the information these two informants are providing? Can the Americans prevent the Israelis from taking matters into their own hands and striking first? Meanwhile, the race is on to stop Iran from launching an all-out nuclear nightmare--and time has already run out...

Despite many flaws (unbelievable heroes, strokes of luck, repeated delivery of "US-is-best" ideology), the book manages to build enough excitement to make it a good read
