About the book:
CIA operative Titus Ray is searching for answers. Meanwhile, an assassin is searching for him.
Learning 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.
Dealing with the 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.
Facing the future . . .
Before leaving Langley, 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.
Can a man trained to lie and deceive live a life of faith?
Should he trust the beautiful young detective with his secrets?
Was the bullet that killed his friend meant for him?
Luana Ehrlich’s novel, One Night in Tehran, fell short of my expectations, and that’s a good thing. Lately I have read a number of independently published novels, and I have come to the conclusion that creating a well-written suspense thriller is not as easy as the big-named authors who crank out annual best sellers make it look. Mrs. Ehrlich, however, has done just that.
The main character of the first Titus Ray Thriller Series is multi-faceted – tough enough to go head to head with the most vicious enemy assassin but an easy mark when a stray dog shows up at his door; wary enough to be a successful CIA operative but open to a special friendship with an attractive Oklahoma detective. The story line can hold the interest of the most die-hard thriller fan, and it leaves you wanting more. I thoroughly enjoyed One Night in Tehran, and I look forward to reading the rest of the Titus Ray Series.
