P&P Live! Philip Kaplan — Night in Tehran

Upcoming Event
Monday, November 23, 2020 - 6:00pm

Based on historic events, and frighteningly relevant to today's headlines -- a taut thriller about one American diplomat's year of living dangerously in Tehran in the days leading up to the Iranian Revolution.

In the style of Alan Furst, this suspenseful thriller -- based on real events -- places an idealistic American diplomat in a turbulent, US-hating Tehran in the days leading up to the Iranian Revolution. Backed by the CIA, and trailed by a beautiful and engaging French journalist he suspects is a spy, David Weiseman's mission is to ease the Shah of Iran out of power and find the best alternative between the military, religious extremists, and the political ruling class -- many of whom are simultaneously trying to kill him.

Ambassador Philip Kaplan had a 27-year career as a diplomat in the U.S. Foreign Service, including being U.S. minister, deputy chief of mission and Charge d'Affaires, to the U.S. Embassy in Manila, Philippines during the tumultuous overthrow of Ferdinand Marcos. Now retired from the State Department, Kaplan is currently a partner in Berliner, Corcoran & Rowe LLP's Washington, D.C law office, where his practice is focused on public and private international law. He lives in Washington, DC.
