    One thought on “One Night in Tehran”

    1. Wow. This book never stopped! It grabbed my attention at the beginning and did not let go. It still hasn't let go of me; and I find myself wishing that I had book 2 (please tell me there's a second book coming!) in had so that I could just keep right on reading!Obviously, one thing I loved about this book is that the majority of the story takes place in my home state of Oklahoma. :) While I have been to Norman several times, I'm not very familiar with the area. This book had me wanting to tour N [...]

    2. Brilliantly Written ThrillerWhat gives One Night in Tehran its authentic feel is the author's knowledge of the situation in the Middle East, her familiarity with its customs and her intense research into the processes of the FBI and the CIA. All is extremely convincing. But it takes more than depth of research to grab a reader's attention from the beginning of a story and hold it to the very end. That requires imagination and the skill to turn that imagination into words. Ms. Erlich has that env [...]

    3. "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 [...]

    4. I received a signed copy of this book, together with two bookmarks and a letter, through First Reads - thank you very much - but this has not influenced my review. I found this an entertaining read, with plenty of action and suspense to keep the pace up nicely. Titus Ray is a good, likeable main character and although the religious element initially seemed a bit crow-barred into the book, it didn't detract from the story - even for an atheist like me - and eventually made sense given the plot d [...]

    5. An excellent suspense book following Titus Ray, a CIA operative in Tehran. Ehrlich did an excellent job keeping this reader on the edge of her seat.No language. No inappropriate scenes. A new Christian, Titus struggles with how to reconcile his investigative, yet deceptive or covert lifestyle with having a conscious and the desire to tell the truth. This book is very interesting! It is book one of a three book series. To quote Paul Harvey, I'm looking forward to reading "the rest of the story."

    6. Most of my book review opportunities come as offers. This one didn't. I recently started getting emails from a place that lists new books of all genre's - some that I wouldn't consider even reading - and it gives the authors' information if you're interested in reviewing a book. This book was the only Christian book in the email, so I emailed the author and she agreed to send me a copy of her debut novel. I started to read it last night. That was a mistake, as I didn't have enough time to read t [...]

    7. 3.5 Stars! Because One Night In Teharan was tweeted over and over on twitter, I decided to check it out! I finished the book in less than a day, being so engrossed in the story. One Night In Tehran is not your typical action-packed, high-suspense spy novel, but it is an interesting read with the suspenseful flare and pacing as say, HBO's hit t.v series, Homeland, which I love! The protagonist, Titus Ray, is a root-for-character trying to fight for his position in the CIA, engage on a sort of sou [...]

    8. This is a great spy thriller - not just your average spy thriller though, it has some interesting twists that make it pretty original.I found the main character to be incredibly likable. Titus Ray has the type of personality I would have loved to run across in my days at the CIA. Actually, I probably did meet one person like him, but that is a story for another day - or, I should say, another book - (mine). In all seriousness, I related to his inclination to be a loner. Ms. Ehrlich writes very s [...]

    9. Awesome book. It was action packed, full of adventure and excitement. I couldn't put the book down. Escaping a foreign country, international spy life, murder, homeland security, what is not to love. Great book, I highly recommend it. Great book! It was well written, flowed well.

    10. I read ONE NIGHT IN TEHRAN by Luana Ehrlich as a judge in the Grace Awards. Right in the first pages, its authenticity floored me and made me want to keep reading. The author has such a vast knowledge of CIA protocols, one wonders if she’s had some type of connection to that highly secretive world.The story begins in Tehran. Titus Ray, an undercover American CIA agent is being hunted by Iranian authorities, but manages to escape the country. Back in the states, he learns he’s been targeted b [...]

    11. I received the book for free from the author for an honest review.Positives:1) It was an enjoyable read.2) It has pretty decent character development.3) It had a nice Christian tone to the whole book, which I enjoyed.4) It was a great Mystery/Spy/Suspense/Thriller book.5) I enjoyed the book so much that I finished it in 2 days.6) I am definitely looking forward for the next book in the series. I was drawn in and want to see where it will go.Negatives:1) Only negative is that even though the book [...]

    12. The plot captivated me to begin with, but there were some things that just didn't work for me. I think it's very difficult to write in the first person, but it took me awhile to figure that out. Who when they are thinking to themselves says, "For example"? No one I know. There was a stretch where the word "however" was way over used, and again, no person I know of uses that word when thinking to himself. Halfway through the book I picked up Daniel Silva's, "A Rembrandt Affair" and realized prett [...]

    13. I really enjoyed this book. The main character, Titus Ray is a young CIA agent, who escapes Iran by the skin of his teethhidden in the boot of a car.Placed on medical leave due to injury and trauma, Titus moves to the town of Norman, where he attempts to keep a low profile.However, this proves impossible, as he's soon caught up in a couple of murders, and finds himself stalked by an Iranian assassin.One Night in Tehran, is well written, exciting and certainly applicable to the times in which we [...]

    14. I received this book as a gift and surprised myself by reading it in a few days. For me it was a witty and riveting tale written by an author who understands the inner workings of the CIA and FBI. It is a plausible and gripping story that takes place in a modern day setting focused on clandestine operations in the Middle-East and US. As a spy/detective book, I found it refreshing. The story had intrigue, covert agents, confrontations and plot twists without over the top violence. It was an enter [...]

    15. Great spy/thriller/Christian book. One line that was throughout the book "what's the most important thing in your life" this book should remind all of how important our religious freedom is in USA. Christians all over the world are arrested, imprisoned, etc etc we need to remember this when another atheist sues because they don't want the 10 commandments in a public building or prayer before a game. No one is stopping them from practicing their non religion, they shouldn't be able to prevent any [...]

    16. Intrigue, Secrets and DeterminationI have to admit I was confused in the beginning of this story mostly because of the many characters and different organizations they were tied to. After getting into the story, I really enjoyed Titus and his getting involved in the discovery of the murderers of people he was close to. I thought the story ended too soon. I was looking forward to seeing him catch Wassermann's killer and seeing him starting a relationship with Nikki. I look forward to reading more [...]

    17. I enjoyed this CIA "thriller," especially since it's from a Christian perspective. The book is filled with details and facts about spies, governmental agencies, and terrorists that make you think the author has possibly been involved in some undercover activities herself. :) If you like books or tv shows about CIA operatives, you'll enjoy "One Night in Tehran." I look forward to reading the next story.

    18. This book was Book 1 in the Ray Titus series & given the title, went at a much slower pace than I expected. The final few chapters picked up the pace & added an unexpected twist that could have really been developed further if it had happened earlier in the storyline. Nevertheless, the latter part of the book & ending peaked my interest enough to put Book 2 in this series on my very long "To Read" list.

    19. I've never read a story like this: CIA spies, Christian conversion, international intrigue, but it works. This fast-paced faith-based thriller kept me turning pages long after the rest of the family fell asleep. An excellent read. Looking forward to part 2.

    20. Loved itReally enjoyed this book. A really great thriller with all the intrigue and none of the filthy language that most of this genre contains. Look forward to reading more of this author's books.

    21. A must read!Great story and very well written. Highly recommend this oner sure! Luana Ehrlich is a big-time author. And, the story flowed brilliantly. Couldn't put it down and immediately pulled up the second story in the series.

    22. Excellent readThis is a fantastic book that will keep you turning pages till the end and leave you excited for the next book! I highly recommend it to everyone! Looking forward to the next book in the series!

    23. New Christian Titus RayNew Christian Titus Ray faces choices and decisions as he ponders how his new walk with JESUS and his CIA job can be compatible.This is a good read and is thought provoking.

    24. This is the first time I've read a book of this style. (being labeled a spy novel or thriller) It had me hooked from the first few chapters. I'm very excited for the next in the series to come out in May 2015.

    25. Very interesting readInteresting characters and story line. Did not included detailed information on CIA operations but enough to be interesting. Greater depth for Franklin would have been interesting but probably in next book

    26. A Wonerfully Exciting StoryThe characters in this book were so real, both heroes and yet human. The plot kept me turning pages, eager to learn more. Titus Ray is a man whose occupation is intriguing. I can't wait for the next book. I'm a fan!

    27. Highly recommended! Can't add to other reviews except to write - you should read this book. (♡˙︶˙♡)CB

    28. Good readVery enjoyable reading. Well developed characters The action and suspense lasts throughout the book. Looking forward to the next book in the series.

    29. Loved it !It's a fun read. I had a hard time putting it down! I hope there is another book! I really would like to go on another adventure with Titus!

    30. Good storywhile this story was not the best I've read,it was fairly interesting. I imagine I'd be wanting to read the sequels.
