TEHRAN CONVICTION by Tom Gabbay - SIGNED FIRST EDITION BOOKSee all titles by Tom Gabbay.
Tom Gabbay plots his most riveting tale yet: Agent Jack Teller had to make an ugly choice in his youth . . . and now, decades later, he and the United States must deal with the blowback.
Tehran 1953. Jack Teller, a new recruit to the recently established
Central Intelligence Agency, finds himself in Iran posing as a
high-level American oil executive as part of Operation Ajax, the
agency's first attempt to overthrow the government of a sovereign
nation. Torn between loyalty to his country's policies and sympathy for
the hopes of a fledgling democracy, Jack must ultimately pick which
side he will betray. It is a decision that will affect the future of
the Middle East and, eventually, the world.
later, in 1979, Jack returns to a very different Iran. The country is
in the grip of a religious revolution, and the streets of the capital
city are filled with daily rantings against The Great Satan. Jack's
attempt to save one man from Islamic justice—a man whom he had, at one
time, called a friend—leads him into the heart of an emerging struggle
between the West and a new and dangerous ideology.
Divided by conflicting loyalties, a young Jack Teller made a fateful choice that would reverberate for decades. In The Tehran Conviction,
Tom Gabbay masterfully interweaves politics and suspense in a searing
tale of espionage and betrayal that reveals the unexpected costs our
decisions hold for us—and for history.
