Reza Kahlili, A Time to Betray (Bill Thompson, Eye on Books)

We'll tell you at the outset that Reza Kahlili is not his real name. He's a native of Iran, who grew up in pre-revolutionary Tehran with a close-knit family. After the 1979 rise to power of Ayatollah Khomeini, Kahlili joined the Revolutionary Guards, envisioning a road to a Persian renaissance. The tyranny of the Khomeini regime left him shaken and disillusioned, and that's when Kahlili became a spy for the CIA. His book is called "A Time to Betray."
