Publisher's Summary

When he begins searching for answers, an assassin begins his own search - for him.

In Tehran, while hiding out from the Iranian secret police, CIA officer, Titus Ray, finds shelter with a group of Iranian Christians. Compelled by their unwavering faith, the battle-hardened agent becomes a believer shortly before they smuggle him out of Iran to freedom in Turkey.

Returning to the States, he discovers his Iranian mission failed because of political infighting within the Agency. After delivering a scathing indictment against the Deputy Director of Operations, he's forced to take a year's medical leave in Oklahoma.

Before leaving Langley, however, he discovers a Hezbollah hit man has targeted him for assassination. 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 Oklahoma has ties to the man who's trying to kill him, and if Nikki Saxon, a beautiful local detective, can be trusted with his secrets.

Surprisingly Good

Although I am a Christian, I hesitate to read books that profess to have a religious element. I tend to find these books overdone, unrealistic, and preachy. If I, as a Christian, feel that way, I can't imagine how nonbelievers get through such books. Ehrlich manages to include the main character's beginning spiritual journey without it becoming an overwhelming part of the story. It felt real. The story line was interesting, if a little lite. I wouldn't classify the story as must read, but it's good.

Great beginning to unique series

At first glance a Christian Spy Thriller seems like a made up niche that cold never succeed. This one however really works. Yes, Titus has found God, yes he is a spy, and yes it all somehow works. Unique. No problem letting the kids listen with you.

I will definitely be moving on to number 2 next month.

Great start to an intriguing storyline. Being a Christian and former Intel officer I am entralled. I do wish they have different narrators especially for female roles.

A clean book to be enjoyed!

If you enjoy reading mysteries focused on the CIA, and covert operations, you will enjoy this one. This is my first book by Luana Ehrlich, but it will not be my last. I intend to listen to this entire series.

An interesting read.

This is not my normal reading material. I usually find this type of subject to be tedious and hard to read or listen to. Not this one. The story and writing was great there was no drag or over info. I look forward to seeing were the story goes.

Spy thriller without sex and bad language

The details in this book were so vivid that it felt like you were transported to the locations with the characters. You could almost feel his presence beside you. I can't wait to listen to the next book!

Just when you thought

What an amazing storyline and so close to my hometown. Talk about getting it right, it was like I was there, visualizing the roads, the surroundings, the smells and feels. Such gripping details and I can only imagine how accurate Tehran must have been described but however it is, the author captures such gripping details thru the narrative you can't help be being transported. Fascinating storyline that keeps you engaged. It's riveting.

A great suspenseful thriller

Even though I had read this book before I listened to the audio, the narrator really brought to life the story for me and and I enjoyed the story even more than when I read it. The narrators’ different voices brought to life all the different characters. I got to know the character of Titus Ray and I really like him so much. The story is very fast pace and edge of your seat suspenseful. Goodness, it was so hard to put the audio away, I wanted to continue to listen to it to find out what was going to happen next in the story! This story was Christian and clean.

So good!! Can't wait for the next!!

One Night in Tehran was so good!! It was definitely the kind of suspense and action kind of story I was craving, and I'm definitely a fan of Luana Ehrlich's writing! Having read the prequel, I was definitely looking forward to seeing how Titus' story continued, and I was surprised to see the action happening on US soil instead of Iran. Still, it was a pleasant surprise, and I definitely enjoyed getting the behind-the-scenes in some procedures like debriefing and such. It was also nice getting to meet Titus' coworkers, his boss, and even Stormy's addition, as well as old acquaintances, and maybe a possible love interest. The pace was perfect and I think this book (and even series, though I'm just starting it) would make for a great movie or TV series. The characters are introduced at a pace that it's never overwhelming, and the attention to detail is such that nothing is left to chance or introduced just because. Getting to see how Titus conducted an investigation was pretty cool, and how he processed all the information was definitely interesting. The action was definitely on point and had me hooked from the previous book. Also, while there are casualties, the descriptions were never gruesome, being more like what mystery/suspense/action TV series show on a regular episode. Having said all this, I think what I enjoyed the most was how the author presented the dilemma Titus faces as being a newborn Christian while also working as an undercover CIA agent. There aren't easy answers, but there are definitely some deep questions.

I loved the narrator's smooth voice, as well as his bringing Titus and every other character to life. It all flowed pretty evenly, and one could even tell which character was speaking thanks to their having their own voice. There were a couple of times when two voices may have sounded a bit similar (Titus speaking with a female), but they were small instances and it didn't pull me from the story. Rather, the narrator did a great job transporting the reader to Titus' new adventure, while portraying all the different emotions (shock, anger, defeat, and interest, to name a few).

Overall, this was a great audiobook experience, perfect for anyone looking for a Clean Action/Suspense story while dealing with not so easy answers to a newborn Christian CIA agent's questions. Can't wait to dive into the next part of Titus' story! ~ 5 stars
