A powerful Iranian cleric wants to strike his own deal with the West in this scathing, hilarious, and politically astute adventure yarn A powerful cleric with massive commercial and military influence, Ayatollah Ali Baharvand has stepped down as one of Tehran's nuclear negotiators. Sickened by the stagnation of a revolution that never elevated his country to the heights it deserved, he plans to seize power and strike his own deal with the West. Baharvand's plot is charted through the eyes of MI6 officers, diplomats, and journalists, giving a rare insight into the culture, social life, and psychology of this much-misunderstood nation.

Christian Oliver is the Financial Times correspondent for North and South Korea. He was Reuters' Iran correspondent 2003–2006, covering the Bam earthquake, two disputed elections, and civil unrest.

Review:

"Excellent addition to Iran's current and sparse fiction list.  . . . Mr. Oliver makes scathing cultural observations about the demented megalopolis that is Tehran."  —Washington Times



"Anyone having difficulty assessing the veracity of reports from Iran—or frustrated at reading speculation from 'experts' tens of thousands of miles from Tehran—would find some relief in The Viper of Kerman . . . a racy and entertaining read, with many vignettes illustrating Oliver's eye for detail and sense of irony."  pbs.org
