As Iran Nears Nukes, “The Last Israelis” (2nd Edition) is Released in E-Book, Paperback and Audiobook

New York, New York – May 17, 2013 – Sanctions and diplomatic pressure have failed to stop Iran’s nuclear program but author Noah Beck still hopes that releasing his updated thriller “The Last Israelis” (http://www.amazon.com/The-Last-Israelis-ebook/dp/B008HEFVI2/) in more formats could somehow make a difference.

“As Iran marches dangerously close to a nuclear weapon, world powers repeat the same words, rely on the same sanctions, wring their hands with the same impotence, and hope for the best, as this slow-motion train wreck unfolds for all to see,” Noah says. Determined to focus public attention on what he calls “the single most important issue affecting global security,” the author has been publishing editorials on the dangers of Iranian nukes and other Middle East issues.

In the preface to the second edition of his novel, Noah explains that he initially authored the 270 page book in a breathless ten weeks in order to release the novel in time for the P5+1 talks scheduled for May 24, 2012 in Baghdad.  To minimize time to market, the first edition was published only as an e-book.

Eager to influence the public debate before the Iranian regime crosses the nuclear finish line, Beck decided last January to produce a second edition, this time adding paperback and audiobook formats to maximize the potential audience for his book’s urgent message. The paperback was released earlier this month, and the audiobook — produced last month with the voice of talented actor Jeffrey Buckner Ford — has just become available on Audible, iTunes, and Amazon.

Originally released last July, “The Last Israelis” depicts a doomsday scenario resulting from a nuclear-armed Iran, as experienced by 35 ethnically diverse and ideologically divided Israelis aboard the Dolphin submarine. In NY Blueprint, critic Alan Zeitlin wrote that the “novel…is gripping, chilling and…should be brought to the silver screen. It brings to mind elements of ‘Crimson Tide,’ ‘The Hunt For Red October’ and ‘U-571.'” Author and Amazon Vine Voice reviewer Alan Elsner writes that the book “imagines the unimaginable.”

Noah Beck used the second edition to include a preface about the Iranian nuclear issue and to update certain story details to reflect recent developments in Syria, Egypt, and Iran.

The Armageddon page-turner is based on extensive interviews with members of Israel’s elite and secretive submarine force, and has caught the attention of top political analysts. Middle East pundit Daniel Pipes notes that the novel “has helpfully and creatively [highlighted] that the Jewish state has the ability to strike Iran with nuclear weapons and that a mutual-assured-destruction balance is not a prospect between Iran and Israel. Beck thereby clarifies the full extent to which the mullahs’ regime threatens Israel and the world.”

Richard Baehr, Chief Political Correspondent of American Thinker, called the thriller “a great read on a subject as current as the headlines…the book poses a situation [on a submarine] where none of the choices is good or easy…The [crew is] a diverse collection of religious Jews and atheists, Druze and Christians, [and] Ethiopians…How each man [became] a member of the submarine force is part of the story, and [the] crew’s diversity serves as an explanation for the views held in [their] debates…on the proper Israeli strategy.”

In the ten months since the apocalyptic book was published, “The Last Israelis” has garnered 80 reviews on Amazon, with an average rating of four stars.
