Best known as presenter of ITV News at Ten, Tom is also a novelist and his latest, Yesterday's Spy, is a cunning espionage novel set in Tehran, rich in intrigue and history that will keep you guessing until the final pages.
Nothing good ever comes from a midnight phone call. For washed-up spy Harry Tower, it is the worst news at the worst possible time. His estranged son, Sean, has gone missing in troubled Iran after writing an exposé about government corruption.
When Harry arrives in Tehran, he finds a city on the cusp of revolution. Foreign powers are jockeying for influence, money and, most importantly, oil. The CIA are conspiring to undermine the government with an impending coup, and there are dark mutterings about opium smuggling. But the reasons for Sean's disappearance may be even more sinister than Harry first suspected.
Before long, he is on the run - not only from a faceless enemy, but from his own past. Which will catch up with him first?
