Duzd dar Shab
Thief in the Night in Persian.
This is a mystery story with a difference: the mystery is a real one, and of vital importance to every human being. In the first half of the nineteenth century there was worldwide and fervent expectation that during the 1840s the return of Christ would take place. The story made the headlines and even reached the Congress of the United States. From China and the Middle East to Europe and America, men of conflicting ideas shared in the expectancy. Scoffers were many but the enthusiasm was tremendous, and all agreed on the time. Why? And what became of the story? Did anything happen or was it all a dream? In Thief in the Night the author presents the evidence in The Case of the Missing Millennium in such a way that you can solve it for yourself.
