When he begins a search for answers, 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.

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.

I was inspired to write this book when I heard about the persecution experienced by Iranian Christians in Iran. Then, since I have a passion for the mystery/suspense/thriller genre, I asked, “What would happen to a veteran CIA intelligence officer if he encountered the faith and commitment of a group of Iranian Christians? What if he made a commitment of faith because of their influence? What would happen in his career if he began trying to live a totally different life, a life of faith?

"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." --David Grogan, Goodreads Reviewer
