Night in Tehran
Genre(s): Fiction, Thriller
Era(s): Late 1970s
Based on historic events, and frighteningly relevant to today’s headlines — a taut, Year of Living Dangerously-style thriller set 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.
