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?

Super Spy Tommy Carmellini is dispatched to Iran by Jake Grafton to search for evidence of nuclear weapons. As usual, Tommy seems to live a constant death defying adventure being blown up, tortured, escaping gunfire and managing to save the day.

I enjoy reading the adventures of Americas greatest reformed jewel thief now working for the CIA. This book has got to be his greatest adventure, until I read the next Jake Grafton-Tommy Carmelleni adventure. I'm an action adventure fan and Jake and Tommy have never disappointed me.

Reads like a jumble of vignettes. A plethora of characters who are continually inserted into the story destroying any cohesion and resulting in confusion. The reader constantly asks, "Who is this character?" The conclusion which should be exciting is diminished by repeated jumps to different subplots. The reader never gets a feel for the main character, Carmellini, who bounces in and out of the story. Finally, it is too much to believe that Israel would do nothing when nuclear warheads are heading for Tel Aviv.

My personal history of interest in Iran goes back to the Iranian Hostage Crisis of 1979-1980. Jimmy Carter's ignorant naïveté, waffling inaction, and the resultant humiliation of America still rankles me, as does the Iranians crossing over legal diplomatic borders and taking Americans hostage. Reagan's entry into office makes the Iranians realize things have changed, and the Iranians release the hostages. Details of this can be found in the excellent book "Guests of the Ayatollah" by Mark Bowden.

Fast-forward now 30 years, and the Iranians realize they replaced one dictatorship with one that's much, much worse. They're demonstrating in the streets, they're on the right side of "FREEDOM!" now, and we have another naïve president who thinks saying nothing (therefore implicitly supporting the fascist regime, rather than supporting freedom) is the way to {not} respond.

My anger for the Iranians illegally entering "USA Territory" 30 years ago has been replaced with admiration for the brave Iranians fighting and dying for freedom.

It's in this context that Stephen Coonts inserts Grafton and Carmellini into his latest military thriller: the vast majority of Iranians that simply want to live freely while their Islamic Fascist dictatorship mystically believes they can bring Allah's kingdom to earth by initiating a nuclear holocaust.

There's plenty of technical military action along with a duped press corps falling to and even supporting Iranian propaganda in a race against time.

But rather than the typical Coonts military thriller inserted into real history with real characters, the Iranian people's desire for freedom creates a backdrop that in many ways is closer to William F. Buckley's very excellent "Stained Glass" tone of poignancy and sacrifice. This is the book that you would love to see read by the freedom-desiring people of Iran so that they know that Americans support and understand their desire for freedom.

This is an excellent book; I've read all of Coont's books and this is my favorite. He has one graphic sex scene that's really not necessary, but other than that this is truly a fantastic book.

What I appreciated about this book is that the author has taken the world as it is, with Iran thumbing it's nose at the United States and the non-Muslim world and written a book that is shockingly plausable and frighteningly real.

If you want a look at how things could play out in the next year or so, this book would be a very good primer and wake up call. I would be interested to know if it was included in President Obama's holiday reading in Hawaii. I will bet a chocolate chip cookie that it was not.

The most prevalent feeling one comes away with is that the types of people we need and should have in our government are probably now only found in the pages of current popular fiction.

However, there is one character in this book that is frighteningly real both in it and in our real lives. Achmadinijahd, the rogue President of Iran is every bit as evil as portrayed in these pages and I fear we will find out the hard way that it is so.

This is a very unsettling book and masterfully done.

I've had hit-or-miss / up-and-down experiences reading Stephen Coonts -- but along with THE ASSASSIN, this one is really good and among my favorites in the military/spy genre. THE DISCIPLE is a great espionage thriller and relevant to many real-world events that dominate the news today. Tommy Carmellini and Jake Grafton are great characters and Coonts was at the top of his game when writing them in this novel.

Contrary to the predictable few low ratings, I'd give this book 6 stars if a sixth was available. I won't go into the story, or the characters and therby ruin it for someone contemplating buying the book, I'll just say it is a very contemporary "What If" scenario about Iran and it's march toward Nuclear Weapons. I have read nearly everything that Coonts has written, and I think this is his best. If you like books by Flynn, Silva, Haig, and DeMille, you'll most likely love this book. My recommendation: Buy It!
Sorryyy
Fast paced and action filled. However, once again the author has juxtaposed characters (page 238). The F22 is not a relic of the cold war the Mig29 is. I respectfully recommend a human proofreader.????
Intrigue and religious philosophy in an international context. Carefully woven story with military action including much air power and naval power. Tommy Carmellini becomes a sympathetic character.
