Reviews

"Tehran at Twilight is a remarkable meditation on violence, and on all the ways one bears witness to pain...At the center lies the story of two friends whose paths have diverged, and of love restored between a mother and a son. A smart, eloquent novel."
--Dalia Sofer, author of The Septembers of Shiraz

"Connecting the dots of the shadow lives of Iranian, American, and Iranian American double and triple agents, and their double and triple stories in Iran and Manhattan, Baghdad and Berkeley, Abdoh also tells a tale of mothers and sons, using espionage for infrared insight into concealed identities. The startling truth embedded in this tight novel: We Are All Iranians."
--Brad Gooch, author of City Poet: The Life and Times of Frank O'Hara

"Tehran--bloated, capricious, corrupt, and with its various secret police agencies competing against one another--becomes a ripe setting for this roman noir...Move over Scandinavia: there's a new kid on the noir block."
--Hooman Majd, author of The Ministry of Guidance Invites You to Not Stay

"A smart political thriller for our modern times."
--Laila Lalami, author of Secret Son
