The Last Israelis

by Noah Beck

Book Image Not Available
Overview
In this gripping doomsday thriller "ripped from the headlines," Iran has threatened to destroy Israel while developing the nuclear capability to do so. Struck by a medical emergency, Israel’s Prime Minister falls unconscious just as military action is needed to stop Iran’s nukes. History is now up to 35 Israelis aboard the Dolphin – a powerful submarine armed with nuclear-tipped ballistic missiles. Ship unity is crucial to mission success, but deep conflicts rise to the surface among crewmembers who are ethnically diverse and ideologically divided. Tensions boil further from the rivalry between the captain and his deputy, and a childhood tragedy that quietly haunts a younger sailor whose psychological wounds could explode at any time. On their suspenseful voyage to Armageddon, the submariners must confront each other -- and pulse-pounding threats at sea -- before facing an unthinkable dilemma. It will be the toughest decision of their lives – and it will determine the fate of the Middle East.

About the author
Noah Beck has been telling stories and writing creatively since he was a child growing up on the West Coast of the USA. Despite early literary leanings, his two Ivy League degrees (or, more precisely, the debt that accompanied them) diverted him to over a decade of corporate jobs. He kept his sanity with extensive journaling and globetrotting to over fifty countries, while maintaining a large collection of story ideas waiting to be developed when he finally decided to turn his real passion into a career. In 2012, world events provided the final catalyst that Noah needed to start writing full-time. As a news junkie concerned about the many dangers of a nuclear-armed Iran, Noah worried that time was running out for a solution to be found. With effective sanctions in place far too late and Iran skillfully manipulating diplomatic discussions to continue its nuclear enrichment activities, he feared that the international community might actually fail to stop the threat. Thus, Noah decided to drop everything, quit his job, and write a cautionary tale that highlights the perils of a nuclear Iran, in the hope of contributing to and influencing the public debate. The result of that effort is a military and psychological thriller titled “The Last Israelis.”
