About the Book

Days after his escape from Iran, he starts searching for answers. Meanwhile, an assassin begins his own search—for him.

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.

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.

Before leaving Langley, Virginia, Titus learns he’s been targeted by a Hezbollah assassin. 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.

Reviews (Excerpts)

- "[...] I was captivated from beginning to end! Couldn't put it down once I started. Loved that a lot of it took place in my hometown. It was exciting and unpredictable! Very well written and a great read!" - Atom (Amazon)

- "One Night in Tehran is a well-written, suspenseful page turner of a book. We first meet the protagonist, Titus Ray, as he makes a daring escape from Iran. We hear him recount his mission to his CIA colleagues in a debriefing session. Both the escape and the debriefing set up the greater thrills yet to come when Titus relocates to Norman, Oklahoma.
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 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

- "Thoroughly enjoyed [the] book. Love the question 'what is the most important thing in your life'. Should definitely make people think. Enjoyed the characters in the book and the intrigue." - Jamie (Amazon)

- "This novel will take you on a thrilling ride between the middle east and the united states with a story that unfolds based on current events. You will be fascinated by interesting characters and wondering how different scenarios will resolve.[...]" - James O. (Amazon)
