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 cafe, 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.

    I enjoy counter-terrorism, westerns, historical fiction, detective mysteries, and old school comedy like "A Christmas Story".

    "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.

    Story
    "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!

    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?

    Yes


    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.

    Story
    "Only OK - nteresting concept but not very engaging"
    What would have made The Last Patriot better?

    I would like more plot twists, some additional characters with interesting qualities. There is action in this book, but for some reason, I didn't find it as engaging as other books of this genre. The opening of the book seems inconsequential as it relates to much of the story and that was too bad.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    unsure


    What does George Guidall bring to the story that you wouldn???t experience if you just read the book?

    I love listening to George and it was his narration that brought me to this book.


    Any additional comments?

    I like Vince Flynn's books and they seem to have a bit more action and the characters are more flawed, which brings a dynamic quality to the story telling; but not in all cases.

    Story
    "So far the weakest of the Harvath series"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    The story was entertaining enough.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    I was intrigued by the historical aspects of the story but ultimately felt let down a bit.


    Any additional comments?

    I have gone through all the Scot Harvath series in order to this point. This one I felt was a much weaker plot and story. I felt like it was going to lead somewhere else and it didn't. Not a lot of action or really any plot twists. Kept getting the thought of the movie National Treasure but with Scot Harvath.

    Not a bad listen by any means but not up to par with the others to this point.

    Story
    "Great History Lesson"
    What made the experience of listening to The Last Patriot the most enjoyable?

    Enjoyed how they reminded us that were battling Muslim Extremist since Thomas Jefferson era and how it tied into today's Marine Corp


    What did you like best about this story?

    The struggle were dealing with today and it wasn't started on 9/11/01 but with muslim terrorist at the beginning of America and how our current Government is making the same mistakes with dealing with the problem today as they did in the 1800s


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

    Several of the characters sounded like the same person in this book. However, Scot Harvath is the reason I continue to purchase the series, both on audio and hardback


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

    No, lot of history in this one and I kept repeating chapters to help educate myself on history I forgot/ignored during my early days in school


    Any additional comments?

    Although they tie in to past books where they can, people should really start with from the first of the series and move forward. I started with Hidden Order and got hooked by wanting to read the back story of the character

    Story
    "The end? Really."
    What would have made The Last Patriot better?

    Of all the books up to this point in the series, they have tied up the loose ends and provided closure on the book. Good endings, problems solved, resolutions. This book, has a terrible ending. It really ties up the sub-plots and characters, but it leaves the main plot of the book wide open. Very disappointing.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    Love the take on the Muslim faith and the possibility of a lost revelation.


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

    Scott Harvath


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    I love all the characters. It has some great writing and all the characters have good depth and back-story. You believe in them. The ending is what was bad.

    "Juvenile and Disney-like"
    Would you listen to another book narrated by George Guidall?

    Yes. Seems like a great narrator.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    Some of the historical research was interesting.


    Any additional comments?

    Thor makes sure we know Scot Horovath spells his name with one T for no apparent reason. Maybe to make him different, like Cindi with an I back in the 80's.

    He also reveals Horovath as hard struck but compassionate because he chose to stay by his amazingly perfectly hot, 10 year younger girlfriend after she undergoes a facial surgery which is barely noticeable. Yes, yes. Poor Scot with one T. What a trooper.(sic)

    Horovath pays his utility bills on time because he takes pride in it? OK. We all pay our bills on time. But to take pride in it? It's almost as if Thor suggests the Utility company owes thanks to our protagonist for keeping up his contract. At this point the character started to sound a bit dorky.

    The protagonist has echos of Dirk Pitt, but more douchie, immature and under-developed.
    And I'm not a fan of Dirk Pitt novels.

    I think Thor is trying too hard to "Man Up" this character. When in reality, good men do not hold unreasonable grudges. Or sulk in front of the US President.

    It was all just a bit too silly for me. Not a particularly smart or clever or novel.
    Just think weekly T.V. cop drama. Of how they lack on all levels, but try to make
    up for it in drama. This novel is comparable to that, but with no drama.

    No spoilers, but the end of the book was just like Disney would have done it.
    A text book predictable sappy happy ending. And then an extra happy ending.
    It had me rolling my eyes.

    I never have listened to this author before and will not buy any more of his books.
