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.

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.

Would you listen to The Last Patriot again? Why?
Probably not, because I am 75 years old and have too many more books to listen to, Brad Thor is on top of my list.
Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?
What does George Guidall bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
George is one of my favorite narrators, along with .Dick Hill Their voice accents make you be that there is someone else narrating. but you know it is them. ,
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
Cant do that not enough time but would like to.
