Agent Jack Teller had to make an ugly choice in his youth.
Now, decades later, he and his country must deal with the blowback.
Tehran 1953. A new recruit to the recently established CIA, Jack Teller is torn between loyalty to U.S. policies and sympathy for the hopes of a fledgling democracy in Iran--and he must choose which side he will betray.
Twenty-six years later, Jack returns to a very different Iran--a nation in the grip of a religious revolution, its populace clamoring for the destruction of "The Great Satan" America. Descending into the deadly chaos at the heart of an emerging struggle between the West and a dangerous new ideology, Jack must risk everything to save one man from Islamic justice--a man he once called his friend.
