    Another winner by Mr. Henshaw. And seriously, thank you so much for keeping your commitment to keep the language clean. I not only admire your determination, I am grateful! A couple lines I particularly liked: " I'm afraid we all need hope as much as we need food. A person's sou...

    The 4th Henshaw book about the CIA and the world's bad guys (Iran in particular) And a very tough woman: Kyra Stryker. Kyra Stryker could reduce James Bond to a sobbing ruin without shedding her clothes!!! ...

    Read in under 24 hours! Great! Engaging, likeable characters plus some vile, detestable ones. Realistic political choices and plot. Twists and turns. Vivid descriptions of places and things. Highly recommend. ...

    The fourth book in a series, but the first book that I have read in the series. The potential horror of a dirty bomb exploding in the world is enough to write a story around. Ramp up the tension though when that bomb explodes in Israel, a country that seems to have trademarked the word...

    I finally finished this series. It was a good companion to reading the prize longlists that I've been working through (much more slowly than others.) And I'm going to say that this final book made the first three worth reading. I'd quibble with the name of the series, given Jon has...

    A fairly readable novel about middle-east conflict, Iran vs. Israel, with US people and agencies mixed in. Confusing at times trying to sort out who's who but a decent story comes through it all. ...

    This can be read as a stand-alone novel. Absorbing and enjoyable and even a bit daring as Mr Henshaw moves the pieces around of a successful series. Jonathon Burke and his damaged knee only play a limited role as Kyra Stryker steps up, but The Last Man in Tehran has a much broader s...

    The fourth Red Cell book starts off with Haifa being infected with radiation by a bomb. Israel is out for vengeance against the Iranians who they hold responsible and being aided by a mole inside the CIA. Kyra is tasked with helping the FBI find the mole. When her suspicions run counte...

    Actually, this is probably closer to a 3.5-star book. It?s a great story, but with the amount of previous things that referenced, it?s not the best entry point into the series. This is because, while some series gives context to previous events, this series just kind of references ...

    4.5 stars for this one. Mr. Henshaw really scratches my John le Carre/Tom Clancy-borne itch. This is movie ready spy/techno fiction at its breezy best. There isn't a lot of depth to the characters (honestly, the details of what happens when a bomb goes off gets more text-time than most...

    This was as good as ?The Red Cell?; Henshaw?s best since the first Stryker novel. Treason, ambition, tons of action...I flew thru this in one sitting. Great way to end a not-so-great year of reading. I didn?t read enough this year after starting a new job in last April, and...

    The fact that the author mentions Arabic when speaking about the language in Iran makes the rest of his research, and some of his other suggestive details questionable. Iranians speak Farsi not Arabic ...

    Kyra Stryker first joined the "Red Cell," the CIA's quirky think tank, in the 2012 novel of that name. She was a rookie agent hung out to dry for the mistakes of her superiors, but managed with the help of Red Cell curmudgeon Jonathan Burke to demonstrate considerable talent for the wo...

    Another great story by Mark Henshaw. I have enjoyed the entire "Red Cell" series. Mr. Henshaw's stories move along at a nice pace. Not too wordy or lacking in content. A lot of the CIA/Espionage/Covert Ops authors could take a lesson from Mr. Henshaw knowledge within the story and pros...

    The 4th novel in the Red Cell grouping by Mark Henshaw, 'The Last Man in Tehran', is a decent thriller but uneven in its plot. Realistic action, good tradecraft, and taut dialogue is too often followed by sequences that just don't pass the smell test, at least to me. Last Man.... st...

    Destruction in the Middle East Early in the opening chapters of ?The Last Man in Tehran? there?s a line that epitomizes Israel?s tragic reality and sets the tone for this book: ?There has never been a day in our history when we have not been at war.? Author Mark Henshaw ...

    I haven't read an espionage book for several years and I rarely write reviews. But I will for this book. It is rated 5 not because it is a literary tome, but because it is well-written and a thoroughly good book holding my interest straight through to the conclusion in record-time. I s...

    A spy story with a heart? Once again Mark Henshaw does a great job writing what appears to me to be a realistic spy novel. It is not all about shooting, stabbing and torturing but instead is about people. Real people, some doing wrong on purpose and some doing right even when inconv...

    It was a quick fun read. I didn?t realize it was part of a series and worked well as a stand alone story. It wasn?t spectacular but it held my interest & I wanted to find out how it ended. I?ll definitely be checking out more books by this author. ...

    CIA agent Kyra Stryker has been promoted to the position of Red Cell Chief, a division of the CIA that deals with terrorism. Just after being given the promotion, the Middle East is sent into chaos when a "dirty bomb" is set off in a port in Israel. The Israelis believe that the attack...
