    • In The Tehran Conviction, Gabbay’s latest historical spy thriller, he takes a close look at the role of the CIA in the 1953 overthrow of Iran’s charismatic, nationalist Prime Minister, Mohammed Mossadegh. In this prequel (Teller appears in two earlier Gabbay novels, The Lisbon Crossing, set in 1940 and The Berlin Conspiracy, set in the 1960s) we see Teller when he is first recruited by The Company. The interview process is a bit different today. He is placed in a position of considerable res [...]

    • Won through GR First Reads Giveaways.I seem to have been reading a lot of books about the Middle East lately. All fiction, but all have given me a little more insight into the similarities and differences between their culture and our own. No exception to that trend with The Tehran Conviction. More about that in a bit.First, let me start out by talking about the word "conviction". The book begins by defining the term:Conviction (n.)1. A fixed or strongly held belief.2. The act of being found of [...]

    • This is the third adventure of Jack Teller. Jack is a cagey, efficient CIA agent with a little attitude, a dark sense of humor and a pragmatic but real patriotism. As with the previous two Teller books, Jack gives us a first hand account of his behind the scenes involvement in historical events. In The Tehran Conviction these events include the Shah of Iran's rise to power in 1953 and the 1979 Iranian/US hostage crisis with Jack right in the middle of both. Jack is somewhere between James Bond a [...]

    • Will mull my reviewInitially: I liked the way the protaganist was with women for the most part, a lot. The ideas discussed in this novel are fascinating and extremely timely. The merging of that discussion into the format of a spy novel caused me a bit of a stumble. Parts of it felt forced to me, or formulaic, or almost tv-movie-ish. There was something tv-movie-ish in general, I think the simple characterizations mainly. It so happens that a lot of what I've read lately is written from multiple [...]

    • The Tehran Conviction depicts a fiery cauldron boiling over with one suspense-filled moment after another. There’s no doubt that the author has crafted a compelling page-turner which brings the reader to the edge of curiosity, asking the question “What comes next?” Jack Teller, the author’s key character, is unexpectedly caught up in a tortuous role, trying to juggle an inescapable clash of cultures with his own competing personal and professional loyalties, at the heart of which is his [...]

    • This started off a little slow for me, however, as I got further into the storyline, I became so obsessed with it, I no longer could put the book down. It is a novel, but actually pretty much based on many factual events that took place between 1953 and 1979 in Tehran. It covers the outing of the Shah and the various factions that were devoted to his never coming back into power. Intriguing, and even though it jumps from the 50's to the 70's, and back and forth which proved a little unsettling, [...]

    • An espionage story which is set mostly in Iran in the early 1950's. The story is based upon Operation Ajax, the plot (successful) by the CIA to overthrow the prime minister of Iran, Mohammed Mossadegh. The characters are believeable enough and the writing is lucid and easy to read. The sense of reality in the description of actual past events makes the book even more interesting in light of events in Iran over the past 30 years.

    • This easy-to-read thriller reminds readers how U.S. efforts to install the Shah in 1953 yielded horrid, unintended consequences that still haunt U.S.-Iranian relations today. I plan to read the factual historic account, "All The Shah's Men," recommended by the author in his postscript. A timely addition to the summer's list of worthy thrillers.

    • This was easy read which was just the thing I needed at the end of the day. The thriller kept me interested by switching times between 1950s and the Iranian revolution in 1979. Reading the fictional story has piqued my curiosity about the historical facts of that time and now will read All the Shah's Men.

    • The ugly side of AmericaMy daughters God father is Iranian who we had befriended during the hostage crisis in Iran and I feel this book accurately reveals what happens when we as a country try to determine the governance of other countries. My friends father was arrested and tried for building furniture for the Shaw. He was one of the fortunate ones who survived.

    • I discovered the author with this book, and it was a very pleasant surprise; I really liked this novel, it reminded a lot David Ignatius, whose books I love. The story is extremely well documented and the characters well constructed. I will certainly read other books by T Gabbay

    • Excellent novel with interesting characters and so well written that the reader slips back and forth between the worlds of 1953 and 1979 Tehran with complete ease. I hope there are more Jack Teller novels in the offing, because Mr. Gabbay is a masterful storyteller.

    • Fascinating piece of author craft. Due to the plot device of skipping around in the narrative, it wasn't always easy to fit all the pieces together bit the Iranian connection was very intertaining. The author's view of what serving in that part of the world at that time was very well done.

    • A thriller about American spy Jack Teller and the CIA's intervention in domestic Iranian politics to install the Shah. Based on facts it makes me sick at my stomach to think what the U.S.has done internationally. Not a great book.

    • I enjoyed this book very much. I hope to read the authors other books as well. The book kept my attention. I loved the characters of Yari and Zahra as well as jack teller. He is a pretty cool guy.

    • DisgracefulAnother disgraceful story based on America's misadventures in the Middle East. Held my attention. Liked the device of moving back and forth in time to tell the story.

    • Great historical fiction about the CIA's attempt to overthrow the prime minister of Iran in 1953 and the rise of the Alatola Khomeini. David and I could not put this one down!

    • Feels very realInteresting approach. A spy novel written in the style of a detective story. Suspenseful, with many plot twists. Enjoyed it.

    • An interesting fictional account of both the 1953 overthrow and the 1979 revolution. I would recommend reading, as does the author, the nonfiction account "All the Shah's men".

    • An interesting modern historical spy novel. I like switching between the 1950s and the 1970s. The main character was appealing and relatable. The setting of Iran pre-revolution was enticing.

    • Very well written.Flashback novels are usually difficult to follow but in this case the flashback scenes are skillfully done and enhance the story.

    • Good storyBelievable. Too often these type of stories fall apart because the author tries too hard to add suspense and drama without foundation. This story is all believable.
