New York, New York (PRWEB) July 25, 2012
Yesterday world powers failed yet again to stop Iran’s nuclear program, but author Noah Beck intends to halt Iran’s quest for nukes using a novel approach (literally). Last March, Beck concluded that the Iranian regime was manipulating the P5+1 talks to buy itself time to reach the nuclear finish line, so he dropped everything and became a typing hermit in order to churn out -- in a breathtaking ten weeks -- an 84,000-word novel about the Iranian nuclear threat.
The psychological and military thriller was recently published on Amazon and has already garnered dozens of five-star reviews, including from some of Amazon’s top book critics. Amazon Vine Voice reviewer Chris Kruschke calls it “One part ‘Crimson Tide’ and another part ‘Twelve Angry Men,’” and raves that “the final third of the book is some of the fastest paced and most gripping literature I have ever read…I would hold it up against the writing of even the most established writers of political/military thrillers.”
Appropriately titled "The Last Israelis," the cautionary tale about a nuclear Iran takes a suspense-filled ride aboard the Dolphin submarine. The mightiest vessel in the Israeli Navy, the Dolphin is Israel’s "second-strike" answer to the existential threat posed by Iranian nukes.
Noah says that he first conceived of the idea in 2009 as a movie concept. "The premise was boiling with dramatic potential but writing a screenplay that within months becomes a widely released film is like Ayatollah Khameini taking a phone call from me and agreeing to dismantle Iran's nuclear program: impossible. But in March of 2012, after I was still hearing the same type of weak talk and indecision about the Iranian nuclear issue, I resolved to drop everything and work on this story as an e-book, which can be released instantly.”
How does a layman write a 263-page doomsday novel about the crew aboard Israel's powerful, German-made, diesel-electric submarine? In late March, the first-time author began watching submarine movies and was soon on a flight from the U.S. to Israel. "I was amazed at how flat hierarchies in Israel are – even with something as rigid as the military. With a few friendly introductions, I was talking to the former head of the submarine force, who had himself captained countless missions."
After publishing his novel in record time, how does Beck think it will make any difference? “There’s some great bipartisan congressional leadership on the Iran issue. So if I can get staffers for senators like John McCain, Marc Rubio, Bob Menendez, or Joe Lieberman to read the novel today, that could quickly change the public debate on this issue. Am I being unrealistic?” he asked quixotically.
