The fortunes of war deigned that, having soldiered safely on five continents and Central America, I had ample time to hear some great war stories over the years. In addition to my own remembrances, the war stories often tall tales I tell came from courageous American combat soldiers with whom I had the honor of serving, but they were back in the rear areas [in garrison rather than on operational deployments] when I heard their yarns.

There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later. And I was disappointed. Basically this book lacks everything that made "The Counterfeit Agent" believable an enjoyable. Whereas "The Counterfeit Agent" had an interesting, tightly-woven plot and fast pacing, "Twelve Days" tends to meander and drag. I also had the impression that Berenson wasn't really sure where he was going with this book and was struggling to fill the pages. To start, the first quarter of the book essentially recaps in detail the events of the first book.
A third party actor is trying to manipulate the US into taking out Iran's nuclear installations by creating a chain of evidence implicating Iran in a nuclear terrorism plot. The problem is that in most of this book Wells is basically just following plot threads that go nowhere and don't produce any new leads or information, like the sections in Russia and Saudi Arabia. Wells just travels around the world rather aimlessly and doesn't really accomplish anything for most of the book. Also, one of the bigger subplots in the previous book involved the CIA's Istanbul staff trying to identify and figure out the intentions of a mysterious Iranian agent.
That plot strand is all but forgotten here, and the story with "Reza" is never resolved. A very unsatisfying conclusion to a storyline and characters I just spent hundreds of pages reading about in the previous book. Much of the plot's tension is based on a ticking clock premise in which the US is preparing to go to war with Iran. But somehow Berenson fails to use this to build tension. Berenson doesn't go into much detail about the politics, diplomacy, and military actions that would precede such a war.
Surely, if there was evidence implicating Iran in a nuclear terrorism scheme, Israel's own nuclear forces would be on alert, and Israel would be prepared to intervene if the US didn't. And how would the Europeans, Arabs, and UN react?
