When he begins searching for answers, an assassin begins his own search - for him.
In Tehran, while hiding out from the Iranian secret police, CIA officer, Titus Ray, finds shelter with a group of Iranian Christians. Compelled by their unwavering faith, the battle-hardened agent becomes a believer shortly before they 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. After delivering a scathing indictment against the Deputy Director of Operations, he's forced to take a year's medical leave in Oklahoma.
Before leaving Langley, however, he discovers a Hezbollah hit man has targeted him for assassination. 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 Oklahoma has ties to the man who's trying to kill him, and if Nikki Saxon, a beautiful local detective, can be trusted with his secrets.
Although I am a Christian, I hesitate to read books that profess to have a religious element. I tend to find these books overdone, unrealistic, and preachy. If I, as a Christian, feel that way, I can't imagine how nonbelievers get through such books. Ehrlich manages to include the main character's beginning spiritual journey without it becoming an overwhelming part of the story. It felt real. The story line was interesting, if a little lite. I wouldn't classify the story as must read, but it's good.

At first glance a Christian Spy Thriller seems like a made up niche that cold never succeed. This one however really works. Yes, Titus has found God, yes he is a spy, and yes it all somehow works. Unique. No problem letting the kids listen with you.
I will definitely be moving on to number 2 next month.
it was hard to start listening to this book very slow start for me. the reader was a bit like Joe Friday , matter of fact tone. but as I stuck with it drew me in, and I rather enjoyed it. I look forward to reading the next book.
Great start to an intriguing storyline. Being a Christian and former Intel officer I am entralled. I do wish they have different narrators especially for female roles.
I read this book and when I had the chance to listen to the audible version I jumped on it. it is very well narrated ans I highly recommend.
