I just finished reading, "The Damascus Countdown" by Joel C. Rosenberg. AWESOME book. I just love his work and this didn't let me down. He is consistently good.  This book was the third in a series.  It's a novel that combines spy intrigue, current events, the Middle East crisis, Bible prophecy and a little splash of romance.  

"Israel successfully launches a first strike on Iran, taking out all of their nuclear sites and six of their nuclear warheads. American president William Jackson threatens to support a U.N. Security Council resolution condemning the Jewish State for unprovoked and unwarranted acts of aggression. And the Twelfth Imam prepares to order a genocidal retaliation. Meanwhile, CIA operative David Shirazi has infiltrated the Iranian regime and intercepted top secret intelligence indicating that two Iranian nuclear warheads survived the attack and have been moved to a secure and undisclosed location. In danger not only from the ongoing war between Israel and Iran but also from the increasingly hostile governments in multiple countries, Shirazi and his team are in a race against time to find the remaining nuclear warheads before the most cataclysmic event in the history of the Middle East comes to pass."

Sorry I haven't posted :) So much drama of late and my attention has been needed in so many other areas, I hadn't picked up a book lately (odd for me). But I did pick up a book that I'm really enjoying lately! It's "Critical Mass" by Whitley Streiber.  I usually stick to Christian books, but I picked this one up at Ollie's Bargain Outlet ( for just a few bucks. I'm halfway through it.  It's a novel about nuclear bombs and terrorists.  Reminds me of the Joel Rosenberg and Tim LaHaye/Craig Parshal novel's I've enjoyed only it isn't by a Christian author or publisher. Thanks for having me!!

Thanks for inviting me to the group, Melissa! I LOVE to read, but haven't had a chance lately. I've been so busy, but I promise I will be more active as soon as I get control over things that are going on right now. I look forward to getting to know you all better :) I have a number of books stacked up just waiting for me to get to :)
