One Night in Tehran: A Titus Ray Thriller by Luana Ehrlich

He escaped from Iran; now, an assassin is stalking him in Oklahoma.

Read Book 1 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.

TWO DAYS IN CARACAS, Book 2 in the Titus Ray Thriller Series is available on Amazon.

"I haven't figured out if my desire to serve the Lord can possibly be compatible with my career as an intelligence officer." That thought is near the forefront of CIA officer Titus Ray's mind in One Night in Tehran, a thriller by author Luana Ehrlich. After running for his life and converting to Christianity in the Middle East, Titus is sent to spend a year of medical leave in Oklahoma. But recuperating from his leg injury turns out to be the least of his worries when he hears an assassin is after him. Yes, I'd say I'm still rather new to thrillers, and I've been getting the benefit of suspenseful and dangerous situations without explicit or gratuitous content that would make the stories too R-rated for my particular reading tastes. This novel is no exception--certainly with suspense, danger, and just a hint of romance--and the ending comes about as close to a cliffhanger as possible without absolutely leaving the reader dangling off the edge. There is an ending, but the storyline here definitely calls for the next book in the series. While the action picks up in the second half of the novel, I found the first half or so to be pretty low key, full of details, introspection, and explanations about events that happened in the past, before I as the reader came in. That half wasn't boring to me, though it mostly seemed to be carefully "laying the foundation" for what would come later. Still, I'd rather have a good foundation than a lot of arbitrary chases and shootouts thrown in early merely for action's sake, so I respected the pacing here. On another note, specifically because this novel touches on the Israel/Palestine conflict, a very real and complex issue, I personally would've liked to hear from an amiable or admirable Muslim character or two somewhere in the story. That could have opened the narrative up a bit on that front, as I in no way believe the intent in this novel is to paint all people of any particular faith with one broad brush. Now, I can hardly imagine how anyone who enjoys Titus Ray's story could not go on to read the continuation, which I certainly see myself doing. __________________ I received a complimentary copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.
