David Hall, an American nuclear engineer, arrives in Israel on a mission of truth. Believing that the defenders killed themselves to protect a great secret, Hall plans to explore the heavily guarded site and, he hopes, discover the real reasons behind the dramatic end of the Roman siege. Hall is shadowed by an Israeli archaeologist, Judith Ressner, an attractive but reserved professor with an agenda of her own. There is more than history hidden within the mountain, and Hall soon finds himself the target of ferocious Israeli security forces bent on defeating his quest, who will stop at nothing to protect Masada from intruders.
Combining dynamic history with a highly charged contemporary story of adventure and espionage, The Last Man is a thought-provoking thriller of the Middle East, past and present.

Something Different for PT
A stand alone story by one of my favorites - PT Deutermann. The other reviews not so glowing almost scared me away from this one. Glad it didn't.
Loved all the Jewish history re: Massada. The ultimate prize is a bit Indiana Jones / Dirk Pitt in its historical immenseness.
My only "not so good" is the narrator's voice for the heroine. Difficult at times to know its "her" speaking.

a good one!
This is my second book by this author, PT Deutermann, and it's a really good one. He does a great job of intertwining ancient Jewish history with current events in Israel. I typically research the bios of the authors I listen to and this author graduated from the Naval Academy and captained several ships during his career. He writes about nuclear weapons and scuba diving in some detail and he likely got his knowledge through first hand experience. I got engrossed in this book and plowed right through it. I highly recommend this book. I've already got my next Deutermann in the listening queue!
