Product Description

Brad Thor, master of suspense and New York Times bestselling author of The First Commandment, returns with his highest-voltage thriller to date. In a pulse-pounding, adrenaline-charged tour de force, Navy SEAL turned covert Homeland Security operative Scot Harvath must race to locate an ancient secret that has the power to stop militant Islam dead in its tracks.

June 632 A.D.: 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, who is 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 caf¨¦, 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 as desperate as the American government is to have the information brought to light, there are powerful forces aligned against it - men who are just as determined that Mohammed's mysterious final revelation continue to remain hidden forever.

What Jason Bourne was to the Cold War, Scot Harvath is to the War on Terror. Brad Thor has created "the perfect all-American hero for the post September 11 world" (Nelson DeMille) and will keep readers glued to the pages as he once again takes them across the globe on a heart-pounding chase where the stakes are higher than they have ever been before.

Customer Reviews:

  • Great Book to read
    This was in true Brad Thor form. This was a wonderful book like all of the others. I could not put it down from the moment i got it. He is still keeping all the suspense and action alive and well like in his previous books. I can not wait untill the next book is released. I have already preordered it and expect the same brilliant writing style of History, Tactical information, suspense, and ever evolving plot to continue.

    A MUST READ FOR ANY BRAD THOR FAN!!!...more info
  • THORoughly Enjoyable!
    I have read all of this author's books and as this is, as I write it, the 104th review of this book on this web site, I will spend little or no time on the story line. My view is that those that didn't like the book were either unnecessarily hard on the author or are politically out of sync with the lead character and take it out on the author with a low rating.

    Nearly 85% of those who have read and reviewed the book enjoyed it and I count myself among them. Even the main villain in the book could think for himself and was not a mind numbed killing robot.

    Thor has taken some liberties with history, but has also relied on some aspects of it to spin a very interesting scenario which, once again is left to Scott Horvath to deal with. In my humble opinion the book deserves the high ranking and plaudits that it has received and I am happy to recommend it to one and all.

    I flew through this book without noticing. It is well written and has a good mix of real history and fiction....more info
  • Glenn Beck recommends, I shoulda known
    An extremely boring book that I ended up with only because of a broken back and sending an ex-wife to the library for some reading material.

    The boring plot is only there to form a basis for a right-wing, racist rant. Characters who justify adhering to no rules just because the enemy (evidently the totality of the Muslim world) doesn't have any rules. Pretty ridiculous and simplistic ethical thinking. Don't waste your time....more info
  • a little disappointing
    I absolutely loved all of Brad Thor's previous novels so I was hoping for another great one but I was a little disappointed. Still good but ... With all of his previous books, I stayed up all night reading. But not with this one....more info
  • Wow, a thrill ride from todays headlines
    I have no idea how Brad Thor escaped my book buying this long but it's a mistake I am remedying right now. Don't make the same mistake. I don't usually take time to write a review let alone one with 5 stars but the Last Patriot is a fantastic thrill ride of a novel that deserves your time. Don't miss it....more info
  • The Last Patriot
    The Last Patriot: A Thriller

    My 2nd Brad Thor book; the first being "State Of The Union. I was disappointed with The Last Patriot as the quality of writing was unsohisticated, and the story was unclear. I was hoping The LAst Patriot would cuase me to want to read more Brad Thor. It felt to me that Mr Thor was trying desparately to write another DaVinci Code. There's no reason for the short chapters here. I did like some of the thoughts and conventions pertaining to the device that would save America, but, the idea the Islam would exorcize itself was a stretch at best.

    Two stars maybe generous, and if this is two stars, then I would have to give State Of The Union four stars. I don't intend to review State Of The Union here except to say the quality of writing is better, and the story is better, and not forced.

    After reading two of Mr Thor's books I'm not sure I will read another as the Harvath character is too something; perhaps over the top, arrogant, I don't know, but too something.

    I suppose authors are being pushed to create the next DaVinci code, but I think it's a real mistake for authors to try and force something.

    Thriller = not. Worth reading = well ... it's a very fast read, so investment of time is little.

  • The Last Patriot
    Another Brad Thor thriller that can't be put down once started. Much of it is/has happened; it's difficult to dicipher the fiction from nonfiction....more info
  • Another home run for Thor!
    The latest installment in the Harvath series is a fantastic, fast moving thriller. Those familar with the series as well as newcomers will love the pace and the insider knowledge that Thor uses. You need not to have read the other books to be swept away by the storyline, although after reading this one you will find yourself compelled to start at the beginning. Harvath is a wonderful character who says and does the things we wish we could say and do. His devotion to his country and willingness to do whatever is necessary to keep her safe is a thrill to read about. The story effortlessly moves between story threads without losing the reader along the way. Brad Thor is growing as a writer and unbelievably keeps getting better and better. "The Last Patriot" has only been out a little over a month and I am already excited for next year's model! Keep up the great work Brad!!...more info
  • Wow this is awful
    This is what I get for picking up a "thriller" at random. Elementary school English (apparently target marketing to the 4th grade segment), cardboard characters, virulent anti-Islamic rants, utterly predictable plot-this appalling bad novel set a new low in books I have read (reading this was a truly masochistic undertaking). I kept thinking that it couldn't get worse, then it did. If you're a Michael Savage follower, this book is for you. Otherwise, save your money....more info
  • Not Favorite
    Over the last 8 weeks I've read all the Brad Thor novels. This wasn't the best by a long shot. I started with The First Commandment. I enjoyed the story, but these are books I took to the beach. I wasn't expecting to learn brain surgery....more info
  • SUPERB!!!!!!!!
    Although not a real fan of "political" thrillers...this book had me riveted from the first few paragraphs. Well done, Mr. Thor!!!! I'm sure there's a lot more truth to this than any of us would like to believe....more info
  • so disappointed
    I'm a big Brad Thor fan so was looking forward to reading this book but came away very disappointed. The characters were shallow and the percentage of the book spent preaching history rather than laying out a story was excessive. And I still have no idea what the ending was about---were we supposed to believe Dodd was a good guy, or Salem a bad guy, or did Thor just get sick of writing and so ended it? If you want to read some Brad Thor books, do yourself a favor and don't start with this one....more info
  • Basically the book version of junk food
    I am shocked that a guy with this level of writing skill can be a best-seller. This is basically the book version of junk food that you can get cheap and quick. Everything felt shallow and fake. I wasn't too impressed with Daniel Silva but Brad Thor makes him look like William Shakespeare.

  • Great Page-Turner for Traveling
    I had not read Brad Thor before but I really enjoyed this novel. I am a student of Islam and this book taught me some things which I didn't know. It is a "First Class" action-thriller, a real page-turner and filled with interesting facts about a variety of subjects. The plot is tight, and the characters are believable people you can sympathize with. I would give it 5 stars except I reserve that designation for only about a dozen books I have read in the last 55 years....more info
