“The Persian Gamble” hits #4 on Publishers Weekly bestseller list. Also hits New York Times & USA Today hardcover fiction bestseller lists.


(San Diego, California) — Greetings from beautiful, sunny San Diego. I’m speaking here tonight as part of the nationwide book tour. Please click here to see the updated schedule and please plan to join us at one of the upcoming events.

That said, I’m pleased to announce that The Persian Gamble has hit the three major national best-seller lists in the United States this week.

This represents a significant jump on two of the national lists — PW and USA Today — compared to last year. Here is how The Kremlin Conspiracy fared in its opening week in March of 2018:

Thank you so much to all of my readers in the U.S., Canada and around the world. My team and I are deeply grateful that you purchased the new novel and liked it so much. Indeed, on behalf of our entire publishing and PR team, we’re also grateful for everyone who has been writing about and reviewing The Persian Gamble on Facebook, Twitter, blogs and other forms of social media. Please don’t stop!

I also want to wish all my Jewish and Israeli friends a very Happy Purim! And Happy Nowruz — Persian New Year — to all of my Iranian friends!

Purim is the Biblical holiday commemorating the days of Queen Esther and her cousin Mordechai some 2,500 years ago. Their faith and courage helped save the Jewish people from a Persian plot to annihilate the entire nation of Israel. Today, the leaders of Persia are again plotting horrific attacks, but this time they want to annihilate the people of the United States as well as the people of Israel. I would encourage you to read the entire Book of Esther in the Old Testament of the Bible over the next few days to better understand this extraordinary story, and the faithful God who protects those who call upon him with fasting and prayer.

Finally, let me say that I am praying faithfully for the people of Iran that the Lord God Almighty will set them all free from the cruel slavery and terrible tyranny of the current Iranian regime. May they all soon breathe the sweet air of freedom!
