Publisher's Summary

In Brad Thor's highest-voltage thriller to date, Scot Harvath must race to locate an ancient secret that has the power to stop militant Islam dead in its tracks.
June, A.D. 632: Deep within the Uranah Valley of Mount Arafat in Mecca, the Prophet Mohammed shares with his closest companions a final and startling revelation. Within days, he is assassinated.
September 1789: U.S. minister to France Thomas Jefferson, charged with forging a truce with the violent Muslim pirates of the Barbary Coast, makes a shocking discovery - one that could forever impact the world's relationship with Islam.
Present day: When a car bomb explodes outside a Parisian café, Navy Seal turned covert Homeland Security Operative Scot Harvath is thrust back into the life he has tried so desperately to leave behind.
Saving the intended victim of the attack, Harvath becomes party to an amazing and perilous race to uncover a secret so powerful that militant Islam could be defeated once and for all without firing another shot, dropping another bomb, or launching another covert action. But there are powerful men who are determined that Mohammed's mysterious final revelation continue to remain hidden forever.
Hailed by the Chicago Tribune as "quite possibly the next coming of Robert Ludlum", Brad Thor takes listeners across the globe on a heart-pounding chase in which the stakes are higher than they have ever been.

A Hit (in more ways than one)

Where does The Last Patriot rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

This is possibly one of the really good books that I have listened to in the past year.


Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

Deep plot but not too difficult too keep up with and filled with twists and turns to keep you interested.


Which character – as performed by George Guidall – was your favorite?

George Guidall is so versatile. He is great in every part. I might buy a book just because he was narrator.


Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

It was but I never sit and listen to any book. I have them in the car and I never lose my place. In fact, I can't wait to get in the car so I can begin listening again.


Any additional comments?

This was my kind of story with my kind of performance by my kind of performer!

Plot had some up's and down's

I'm a big fan of George Guidall. When I saw he was narrating this novel I decided to buy the book. Brad Thor could have improved his plot by spending more time in certain areas. For example, he does a great job setting up his theme of drawing a connection between T. Jefferson and Mohammed. His theme of disarming Islam extremists is unique and interesting. But then he disappoints by having the hero, S. Horvath, seem to be a rank amateur at thwarting a assassin who is hot on his trail by not showing a clue about personal security. Scott is continuously easily found by the assassin as if Scott has painted a bulls-eye on his back. Completely implausible. I loved all the in depth description of modern military gear. Scott, however, is a babe in the wood when it comes to security because it seems like a 15 year old with a personal computer and access to the internet could track him down, walk in on him, with no alarms sounded, and attack him and other top FBI, CIA, and Secret Service agents at will. Also the ending was weak, IMHO, and a lazy set-up to pre-sell his next book.
