It’s the most dangerous of chess moves and a race against the clock. Iran sprints to the nuclear finish line. Israeli attack fighters head toward the border of Iran. As leaders struggle to confront the threat, the world holds its breath.Will principalities and powers and the “salt of the earth”—great and small—be able to intervene before events spin out of control? Nash Lee, an NGO entrepreneur, is determined to make a difference through his worldwide mVillage network. Kim Grace, a nuclear scientist imprisoned in North Korea’s secret Camp 16, knows the truth about the devastating technology she helped develop. Anshel Gould, the brilliant chief of staff at the White House, has created a radical peace plan based on the long-forgotten UN proposal for Palestine after the Second World War. But is there a way to stop what seems unstoppable? What Iran, Israel, North Korea, and other earthly principalities and powers decide next could lead to global confrontation….
"When Iran's nuclear program accelerates, alarmed Israelis launch stealth bombers. While fundamentalist Christians and Jews celebrate and Islamic populations rage, world leaders look for peaceful solutions. Robertson Dean handles Nesbit’s complex plot with precision. His depictions of the anxiety over peace talks aimed at permanently partitioning Jerusalem to settle the Arab-Jewish conflict capture Israelis’ genuine fears of their nation’s extinction. Dean's deft handling of diverse nationalities, dual genders, and varying ages ensures that listeners can easily keep track of characters and plot. The story’s subtle Christian perspective is portrayed through brief remarks and an occasional prayer that is essential to the story."

.......umm...can you use like result 29 or something and not a cabin?
Using stealth bombers purchased from America, the Israeli Air Force attacks Iran. The Islamic populations around the world are outraged while internationally Fundamentalist Christians and Jews rejoice. Western governments' fear what the crisis will bring, but cannot stop the tsunami. AS expected by many, the attack places the world on the brink of World War III. Time is running out and a peaceful solution increasingly looks unlikely. A small group of people is the last hope to prevent the pandemic destruction of global conflict. These brave souls think the only way to prevent war is to talk directly with the so called enemy; to achieve this requires a cell phone. The first "Principalities and Powers" global thriller is a superb tale that takes the audience inside of some nasty places as well as top secret locales. Fast-paced from the onset readers are hooked with the action that seems plausible as Jeff Nesbit uses headlines to guide the tale. Although the ending seems off kilter with the foot suddenly not putting the pedal to the metal after speeding from one international hot spot to another, fans will appreciate this realistic twisting doomsday clock countdown.
