One Night in Tehran
by Luana Ehrlich
Read the first novel in a new series of thrillers featuring intelligence officer Titus Ray.
Trained in lies, a covert agent learns the truth
Veteran CIA officer, Titus Ray–on the run from the Iranian secret police–finds shelter with a group of Iranian Christians in Tehran. While urging Titus to become a believer in Jesus Christ, they manage to smuggle him out of Iran to freedom in Turkey.
Will it help him deal with his past?
Returning to the States, he discovers his Iranian mission failed because of political infighting within the Agency. In a hot-tempered outburst, he delivers a scathing indictment against the Deputy Director of Operations, and, as a result, the deputy forces Titus to take a year’s medical leave in Oklahoma.
How will it change his future?
Before leaving Langley, Virginia, Titus learns he’s been targeted by a Hezbollah assassin hired by the Iranians. Now, while trying to figure out what it means to be a follower of Christ, he must decide if the Iranian couple he meets in Norman, Oklahoma has ties to the man who’s trying to kill him, and if Nikki Saxon, a local detective with an intriguing past, can be trusted with his secrets.
Praise for One Night in Tehran
“One Night in Tehran is a well-written, suspenseful page turner of a book. If you like suspense novels, spy novels, current events, “fish out of water” stories, or stories about 21st-century life in an American college town; you will like this book.
The story is timely and plausible. It also contains characters that grow emotionally and spiritually as the events of the book unfold. As the story ends, we find ourselves wanting to follow Titus Ray on his next adventure – an adventure promises to be coming soon”. -Dave Grogan on Goodreads
