Publisher's Summary

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.

Surprisingly Good

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.

Great beginning to unique series

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.

show start but Worth the wait!

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.

I'm hooked

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.

Where the Rubber Meets the Road

Wow! This is one of the BEST books/series I’ve come upon, combining faith with intrigue and mystery, with issues relevant to our times. With hard hitting, gut wrenching tales of the persecution that Christians in the middle east suffer at the hands of their own families as well the ruling Muslims, this is a series for all Christians and Americans to read/listen to. The infiltration of our own country by those wishing to rob us of our own freedoms should be something we are all concerned about, as evidenced by this book. The conversion of Titus Ray, CIA Operative, while in the company of Iranian Christians, is a beautiful, harrowing story. And the murder of his Iranian friend shortly afterward, his successful escape through Turkey with the help of Iranian Christians, and eventual return to the US, make for a rich and thought-provoking story. His debriefing in DC, however, when he learns of betrayal by one of the high-ranking CIA Officers, turns explosive. Unable to forget the needless loss of life in Tehran and the failure of his mission, Titus is unable to hold his tongue. Confronting his superior, Titus asks the hard questions, and gets his comeuppance: a year of medical leave. On leave in Norman, Oklahoma, however, he is still in danger from those he attempted to shut down in Iran. As he begins his new life as a Christian, trying to figure out how to still be a CIA Agent as well as serve Christ, he starts attending church and volunteering in an ESL group. (English as a second language). I love that there is no “heavy handed” religion in the series, and that Titus is slowly growing as a baby Christian. His meeting with Nikki Saxon, local detective with the Norman police department is well done, believable and I’m looking forward to what happens next with them. Its difficult to write a clean, yet interesting, Christian mystery. And this author had hit the nail on the head. Bravo!

Thriller or Religion?

This book should be listed under religion, not a thriller. If I wanted a lesson on prayers, God or faith I'd go to church. I could not finish.

Pretty good

The spy genre is my favourite and I can't rank this at the very top, but I'm still hooked and will likely read the whole bunch. It is nice to leave out the gratuitous violence, endless descriptions of weapons and swear words. Instead, we get description of landscaping and decor....there are moments one can feel this was written by a woman. It may be the start of a new genre, Cozy Espionage. I'm in! I do like a character that is trying to be a better person and answer deep questions in his life, so the Christian angle is just fine with me. People of faith like to read too.
