"John Wells has only twelve days to stop the United States from being tricked into invading Iran in the new cutting-edge novel of modern suspense. Twelve days. Wells, with his former CIA bosses Ellis Shafer and Vinnie Duto, has uncovered a staggering plot, a false-flag operation to convince the President to attack Iran. But they have no hard evidence, and no one at Langley or the White House will listen. Now the President has set a deadline for Iran to give up its nuclear program, and the mullahs in Tehran-furious and frightened-have responded with a deadly terrorist attack. Wells, Shafer, and Duto know they have only twelve days to find the proof they need. They fan out, from Switzerland to Saudi Arabia, Israel to Russia, desperately trying to tease out the clues in their possession. Meanwhile, the United States is moving soldiers and Marines to Iran's border. And Iran has mobilized its own squad of suicide bombers. And as the days tick by and the obstacles mount, they realize that everything they do may not be enough..."-- Provided by publisher

Alex Berenson’s knowledge based novel substantiated extensive learning through the use of jargon that complicates the theme. Although, it starts with a terrorist attack, the apocalypse inspires the trio, Vinny Duto, John Wells and Ellis Shafer to step up. Despite the many twists and turns; a wild goose chase resembling a cat and mouse battle, the missing pieces of the puzzle are finally assembled. It was awesome to witness Duto scoring 10 for the first time when he threatens Donna Green but more specifically when he saves Well’s life. Bottom line? Mission accomplished successfully!!

See "Counterfit Agent" [2014] Same characters/quasi identical story line - first several chapters read like a plot outline. Difference: male/female villans killed differently.

Excellent book. It's much better if you read the previous one (The Counterfeit Agent) shortly before this one so that they compliment each other. This one is much better, though

Being a Berenson fan I read the book. This is not one of his better books, John Wells. It gives a feel like he wrote it to satisfy his one book a year publishers contract.

The only reason I finished this book was hoping it would get better. It didn't

This one has a more frantic travelogue feel than most of the John Wells novels, and suffers because of it. He runs around the world nonstop for the entire book. It also references the previous book in the series extensively; there's enough of a summary that you're not lost, but it helps to have read "The Counterfeit Agent" recently, or remember it well, before you read this book (that prequel is much more tightly plotted and written).
