Avec le réveil de mon loup, ma vie s’est considérablement compliquée, mais comme cette saleté de bestiole m’avait également apporté une famille, j’étais prête à passer l’éponge. Pendant un temps, j’ai cru pouvoir affronter les coups du sort, même ceux que je devais à des instances supérieures très mystérieuses. Et puis, soudain, tout a de nouveau volé en éclats. Cette fois, je ne suis pas d’humeur à fuir, plutôt à courir au-devant des ennuis. Mais voilà, je dois aussi composer avec quantité de fils et filles de dieux qui ont tous un point commun, celui de vouloir croquer un bout de ma personne. Et contrairement à ce qu’on pourrait penser, avoir quelques-uns de leurs patrons de son côté n’aide pas à faire des miracles. Pour sauver ma famille, ma meute, je ne vais pas hésiter à me salir les mains, quitte à ouvrir la voie du sang, et ainsi attirer l’attention du mauvais dieu…
A story of redemption and self-examination, The Pahlavi Sword introduces SAVAK security Captain Jamsheed Al-Armaghani, the young, handsome officer who finds himself at risky odds with his immediate supervisor, Commander Farouk Nabizadeh. SAVAK’s systematic torture of Evin Prison’s inmates infuriates and confronts Jamsheed’s conscience and security status to the point of underground resistance. Subsequently, he is publicly branded a fugitive of the law, which compels him to forge a fragile, unlikely alliance with outlawed, anti-regime resistance fighters and political organizations, including the communist-leaning Tudeh Party.
His one-year asylum under the protection of Tehran’s Assyrian Church subjects him to a brief romantic encounter with loyal church member Fareeda, an outspoken, nurse and daring Assyrian freedom fighter. He is also conflicted by his own covert actions, constantly questioning whether they are driven by his instinctive desire to seek justice or revenge, particularly when obsessed by an unrelenting crave to embarrass his former commander Nabizadeh before the shah, he blindly admires, and expose him embroiled in multiple scandals, including blackmail, drug trafficking and child kidnapping. As Jamsheed’s world increasingly slips on the fast track of regime change, he and brother Mahmood reluctantly flee Iran before travel restrictions are imposed, as their homeland is poised to welcome its exiled religious leader, the Ayatollah Raola Khomeini, in February of 1979. Whether or not Jamsheed Al-Armaghani returns to Iran is ultimately influenced by Evin’s former inmate, Thuraya Al Gailani.
