    By the end of Glenn Beck’s number-one best-selling political thriller The Overton Window, a young rebel named Molly Ross had torn aside the curtain to reveal a shadow war being waged for the future of America. In the six months since then, her fight for freedom hasn’t gone well. Marked as traitors and hunted by ruthless government-sanctioned mercenaries using the most advanced surveillance technologies ever created, Ross and her "Founders' Keepers" find themselves cornered and standing alone. but the fight is far from over.

    Left me wanting more.

    Yes I would.


    Any additional comments?

    A solid, complex, chilling, political thriller that spins a confusing web of story styles into an all encompassing over view of modern day progressive liberalism and the truly evil agenda that it encapsulates.

    I bought the audio book version of the book today from Audible and listened to all afternoon. I have to say that over all the book is pretty entertaining, chilling, and somewhat interesting. However it had a rather blatant disjointed, haphazard, mufti-authored, disconnect to it that made it very confusing to listen too, let along, I assume, to read. While I found the story to be chilling I also found that the way in which it was assembled had me wondering if I had missed a few chapters of the previous book, The Overton Window.

    To me the book seemed filled with chapters that were well written, enjoyably suspenseful, insightful, yet seemingly written by many different authors. This effect brought a sincere sense of confusion to the over all flow of the story and to the book as a whole.

    While much of the book was filled with political insight into the minds and ideology of hard core progressive liberalists, a significant portion delved into what I thought to be the heart and soul of those involved in the events encapsulated by the story. The book can be summed up as; A truly chilling mosaic of current political events spun out of control by agents of willful chaos and those who are caught up within the struggle and those who choose to just "ignore" the reality that surrounds them. Freedom is nothing more than what we are given by those who know there is no freedom but what freedom they grant to us.

    All in all this is a good political thriller written in the multiple story telling styles of Vince Flynn, Brad Thor, and Glenn Beck. A truly chilling tale of the evil that is modern day progressive liberalism and how it is progressing through the body of liberty and killing it from within. Apart from the disjointed feel of the story, the over all story is outstanding and relevant to the issue we are facing in today's world. A solid book worthy of a place on any ones book shelf.

    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    A better story line. The story in this book is pathetic compared to the previous books.


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    Yes


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Anger, Disappointment, regret, boredom


    Any additional comments?

    This was an agony to listen too. The story was contrived and absurd. I was utterly disappointed by this book. It is a shadow of the previous books. It is as if the author just wrote something, anything, that came to mind while on a three week bender. The author put NO heart into this book. He just put words together and little more. Very disappointing.

    The four dead guards didn’t concern Mitch Rapp as much as the absence of the man they’d been paid to protect. Joe Rickman wasn’t just another foot soldier. For the last eight years Rickman had ran the CIA’s clandestine operations in Afghanistan. It was a murky job that involved working with virtually every disreputable figure in the Islamic Republic. More than a quarter billion dollars in cash had passed through Rickman’s hands during his tenure as the master of black ops and no one with a shred of sense wanted to know the details of how that money had been spent.

    Would you listen to The Last Man again? Why?

    I wouldn't have bought this audio book if I didn't expect to enjoy it and listen to it again and again. Much to my surprise, it delivered beyond my expectations and I was pleasently surprised by this short story by Vince Flynn. While not as long as most of his past books, it was more than we could expect given his battle with cancer over the last year or so. It was an enjoyable listen with a good story line that draws you in and won't let you out until the final word is spoken; leaving you wanting yet another chapter.

    More more more.. just one more page before bed wicked fun to read and listen too.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    Make it longer.


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

    All of them. He is a great narrator.


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

    I had to break it up into parts as time allowed but if I could I would listen to it all in one sitting.


    Any additional comments?

    Great author, great series. I cannot wait for new material.
