Book Review by D.I. Telbat
My rating: 4.5 stars
(My review of The Twelfth Imam can also be found on Amazon and Goodreads.)
The Twelfth Imam by Joel C. Rosenberg, is a unique book with a chilling story—I felt as if I were reading real events and getting a behind-the-scenes glimpse of international complexity and dark suspicion.
The pace was set from chapter one, beginning with the embassy riot in Iran in 1979. I liked the message throughout, as well as the true dangers of Islam woven into the story and lives in a realistic way.
The events that were implied kept me anticipating more story revelations, but the plot was not predictable. The plot was involved and moved quickly from scene to scene. There is a lot happening in this book!
I found this book well researched and historically accurate where world events are concerned. The ending leaves you wondering what will happen next. If you like Middle East intrigues and suspense that keep you turning the pages, read this book!
