Publisher's Summary

Decorated CIA analyst Mark Henshaw continues the "authentic, compelling, and revealing" (Jason Matthews) Red Cell series following agent Kyra Stryker, who must work with retired analyst Jonathan Burke to save the CIA from being torn apart by a conspiracy of moles.

New Red Cell chief Kyra Stryker has barely settled into the job when an attack on an Israeli port throws the Middle East into chaos. The Mossad - Israel's feared intelligence service - responds with a campaign of covert sabotage and assassination, determined to protect the homeland. But evidence quickly turns up suggesting that a group of moles inside Langley are helping Mossad wage its covert war.

Convinced that Mossad has heavily penetrated the CIA's leadership, the FBI launches a counterintelligence investigation that threatens to cripple the agency - and anyone who questions the official story is suspect. With few officials willing to help for fear of getting accused, Kyra turns to her former mentors - now-retired Red Cell chief Jonathan Burke and his wife, former CIA director Kathryn Cooke - to help uncover who is trying to tear the CIA apart from the inside out.

Excellent espionage thriller!

THE LAST MAN IN TEHRAN is Book 4 in Mark Henshaw's Red Cell espionage series (Audible need to correct the fact it is part of the series). It is one of few such series that has a woman CIA agent, Kyra Stryker, as primary protagonist. My issue with this novel is, does it deserve a 5 star rating? It is a close call. The first three novels in the Red Cell series did not have great narration, but this novel does. George Newbern does an excellent job.

The publisher's summary sets up this novel well. The author packs a lot of action, intrigue, and suspense into this 9.5 hour novel. The novel ends with an important ethical question.

Fantastic!

I have really enjoyed every book Mr. Henshaw has written thus far, this however is the Crown Jewel! I can hardly wait for the next book! I hope it’s a short wait, please keep up the good work! The narrator did a superb job, perfect not only in the story but in its delivery.

Loved it!

I have to keep myself from overindulging in Henshaw's storytelling!! I want to neglect studying for binge listening.

Awesomness on a page

Mark Henshaw has again provided the listener with a awesome ride through the world of modern espionage and current global events. George Newbern did a very good job narratoring and interpreting the written word. I await the next collaboration with great eagerness.

Not your standard monolithic spy story

I enjoy a good spy novel that does not go too far off the rails. I downloaded this one primarily because of its title, but didn't start it for a while. My mistake. It was entertaining from the jump. The usual comments apply: fast moving; good character development, etc. But in my mind the best thing about it was its fast moving complexity. There were so many moving pieces and different stories. I knew they would come together, but the author fit them together so cleverly. This brought to mind one of my favorite spy novels, Ken Follett's Triple. The ending, and the seemingly small event lost in the overall picture which changed history, could have been cheesy, but it was not. It, like the rest of the book, fit perfectly.
A word about the reader. Low key, matter of fact, unemotional, and ideal for this book.

No gratuitous sex, foul language or gore

Good conclusion with type of “essay” on ethics and morality dealing with motives...doing right for right reason vs. wrong for the right reasons. I hope this author continues to improve his craft as he has much potential.

Mystery with history and future

Good story kept me engaged through the end of the book. Combination spy and history of the relationship between the US, Israel and Iran with a glimpse of the future.

Great spy plot with a twist

Totally enjoyed The Last Man in Tehran. It's a great spy story with lots of twists and a surprise ending. It's also a good commentary on people and countries. Very good read!

Good story, could be much better.

I think that this book suffers from too little detail.
I would have loved to dig deeper into the character relationships, listened to further developed and detailed story line.
The book flew in just 9 1/2 hours, I would have loved 12 to 13 hours.

I recommend this book, just wish for more.
