CIA intelligence officer, Titus Ray, is back in Book 2 of the Titus Ray Thriller Series written by Luana Ehrlich. The first book, One Night in Tehran, was published in August 2014 and has received over 300 five-star reviews on Amazon. This new Christian thriller series introduced readers to Titus Ray, a veteran covert operative who is brought to faith in Christ by a group of Iranian Christians.
A reviewer writes, “The characters are very well-developed and believable. I enjoyed the way the author described Titus Ray’s internal struggles and character flaws, creating a very authentic main character. The story was action-packed, and one is left wondering how the author could be so knowledgeable of the CIA and the work of their covert operatives. I’ve read and enjoyed many Robert Ludlum books and I’d rank this series right up there with his!”
In One Night in Tehran, Titus returns to the States from Iran and learns he’s been targeted by a Hezbollah assassin. After a disagreement with his boss, he’s put on medical leave and travels to Oklahoma, where he meets an Iranian couple, who may have ties to the man who’s trying to kill him. When he finds himself in the middle of a murder investigation, he must decide if Nikki Saxon, a beautiful local detective, can be trusted with his secrets.
Two Days in Caracas, Book 2 in the series, begins with Titus on the hunt for Hezbollah assassin, Ahmed Al-Amin. As the story unfolds, Titus travels from Costa Rica to Caracas, Venezuela in an effort to stop Ahmed Al-Amin from assassinating a high-profile government official. Along the way, a family crisis jeopardizes his mission, and an Agency division head threatens to destroy his career. As the danger mounts, he’s forced to partner with an untested operative to complete the mission and bring Ahmed to justice.
