"Soon, the coming Jihad will drive all infidels from the Holy Land and Islam will once again rule the world." The chilling words of a dying man send David Harrim, an undercover CIA operative, on a desperate search to prevent a ruthless plot that will ignite a worldwide Islamic jihad. From Afghanistan to Turkey, Jordan, Saudi Arabia, Pakistan, Iran and Israel, he attempts to track down the mysterious terrorist Abdullah with the help of two female agents - one from Israel and the other from Iran. The trail leads from the largest Wahhabi mosque in Riyadh to a terrorist training camp in Pakistan, back to the Temple Mount in Jerusalem and finally to the Grand Mosque in Mecca. David's efforts are complicated by several competing factions: the mutaween (Saudi religious police), the Israeli Mossad and Iranian intelligence, Palestinian and Islamic terrorists and the ruling Saudi Arabian royal family. As David draws closer to the truth, he learns that if Abdullah isn't stopped in time, he will start a devastating war between the West and all Muslims. But what David doesn't realize is that he is about to become the final piece in Abdullah's plan.

About the Author:

Jeff Westmont was an investment banker for more than 20 years. He has traveled to more than 40 countries around the world, including much of the Middle East. He has a Wharton MBA and a BA in Economics from the University of California, Davis. He currently lives in San Francisco with his wife Sarah and two sons. Countdown to Jihad is his first novel and he is working on his second.

Review:

Four out of five stars - Clarion ForeWord Reviews.  Westmont’s novel makes for a good summer read....his plot is clever...and there is a great deal of believable if fast paced action in the book. In many ways, Countdown to Jihad stands a notch above the typical modern Middle Eastern political terror thriller. It is an action novel, but one that attempts to open up the minds of its readers in order to help them consider some of the  motivations behind acts of terrorism. Westmont avoids the pitfalls of many  writers of the genre who stereotype Arabs, Palestinians and Iranians as  inherently evil and instead works to round them out from two to three dimensions. The author tries to explain why terrorists fight the way they do  and does so without entirely excusing, condemning or sympathizing with them.
