Description
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 from the #1 New York Times–bestselling author.
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...

        December 22, 2014
        After an effective opening, in which bestseller Berenson makes the victims of a terrorist attack real enough to give their deaths an emotional impact, his ninth John Wells thriller (after 2014’s The Counterfeit Agent) settles into familiar terrain. Everyone onboard a United Airlines flight from Mumbai to Newark, N.J., perishes when the plane is struck by a surface-to-air missile shortly after takeoff. Other disturbing events include the murder of a CIA station chief and, most ominously, the discovery of weapons-grade uranium in Istanbul. While the U.S. president accepts the conclusion that the nuclear material was from Iran and intended for use in an attack on America, Wells, a former CIA agent, believes otherwise. Wells is sure that Aaron Duberman, a billionaire casino owner, is responsible for the uranium and is attempting to trick the U.S. into invading Iran. The desperate efforts to avoid war make for an exciting page-turner, but the characters lack subtlety and the plot holds few surprises. Agent: Heather Schroder, ICM.

        Starred review from January 15, 2015
        John Wells returns in another exciting and entirely plausible verge-of-war thriller.The Iranians are apparently about to get the bomb, and the U.S. is ready to go to war to stop them. But is it true? Too late, ex-CIA agent Wells discovers a plot to dupe the two nations into a needless war. Two commercial jets explode, one of them over Mumbai. Almost 300 innocent travelers are killed. The Iranian government disavows responsibility, but perhaps it's sending America a warning: Don't mess with us. Readers of his earlier adventures know that Wells is a convert to Islam, adding one more layer of complication to a life fraught with danger. His deadly adversaries include an Israeli agent code-named Salome, an accomplished killer who wants the U.S. to believe that Iran has amassed enough highly enriched uranium to build an atomic bomb. If Salome gets her way, Israel's best ally will destroy its worst enemy. Wells will do everything in his power to stop the plan. So Salome wants Wells dead, but she finds him "harder to kill than a Negev spider." Despite her uncharitable opinion, Wells is a sympathetic hero who works with CIA agents to defuse a likely disaster. Eventually, "America's fate"-Iran's as well, obviously-"depends on three men in Bellville, South Africa. Two can't stand each other." Berenson is a master at building tension, with a ticking clock that's built into the title-America's attack on Iran's nuclear facilities is only 12 days away. This well-written and fast-moving novel delivers more than a good plot. It illustrates how in the midst of regional chaos, a great power can jump to calamitous conclusions. This one is well-worth the thriller enthusiast's time, which holds true for all the novels Berenson has written to date.
