9781423334583: The Disciple (Tommy Carmellini Series)

Iran is much closer to having operational nuclear weapons than the CIA believes, and Iran’s president, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, has a plan. With twelve nuclear warheads mounted on twelve missiles, he will make Iran a martyr nation; then he will lead the world’s Muslims in a holy war against the nonbelievers. However, the Americans have a secret weapon in a group of Iranian dissidents, including a brother and sister determined to avenge the death of their beloved grandfather at the hands of the religious police. They are funneling information to Tommy Carmellini. They want to stop the attack before their leader launches a new world war. Will the U.S. government believe the information they are providing, and can the Americans prevent the Israelis from taking matters into their own hands, which could prove disastrous?

A DEVASTATING AGENDA

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.

A COUNTDOWN TO WAR

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...

 “A nail-biting near-future thriller...Hardly a page passes without nerve-stretching tension or flat-out action.”—Publishers Weekly (starred review)
