Summary

Summary

An Amazon Editor’s Top Pick of the Year

Based on historic events, and frighteningly relevant to today’s headlines—a taut thriller about one American diplomat’s year of living dangerously in Tehran in the days leading up to the Iranian Revolution …

In the style of Alan Furst, this suspenseful thriller—based on real events—places an idealistic American diplomat in a turbulent, US-hating Tehran in the days leading up to the Iranian Revolution. Backed by the CIA, and trailed by a beautiful and engaging French journalist he suspects is a spy, David Weiseman’s mission is to ease the Shah of Iran out of power and find the best alternative between the military, religious extremists, and the political ruling class—many of whom are simultaneously trying to kill him.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“With this ‘fly-on-the-wall’ fictionalized account of the 1979 overthrow of the Shah of Iran, narrator Stefan Rudnicki wisely avoids melodramatics in favor of a crisp, intimate delivery. At times, he sounds like the authorized voice for confidential CIA communications…The momentum of history, well-crafted language, and an authoritative delivery carry the listener to the finish line.” AudioFile
“Brilliant…illuminates the intricacies of diplomacy, espionage, and high-stakes politics in the most dangerous country in the world with clarity and drive.” Admiral James Stavridis, 16th Supreme Allied Commander at NATO
“Not just a snapshot in time, this insightful novel is a powerful reminder of how Cold War strategies continue to reverberate through the modern global landscape.” Publishers Weekly
“This taut and fast-paced novel has a particularly compelling feature: Philip Kaplan, after a career in the State Department, brings to his book a sharp political and international sophistication—rare in thrillers, abundant in Night in Tehran.” Alan Furst, New York Times bestselling author
