Publisher Comments:

Brad Thor, master of suspense and #1 New York Times bestselling author is back with his highest-voltage thriller to date in which 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 café, 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 a perilous race to uncover a secret so powerful that militant Islam could be defeated once and for all. But as desperate as the American government is to have the information brought to light, there are powerful forces 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. In The Last Patriot, readers will be engrossed as Harvath once again takes them on a whirlwind tour through international cities and nail-biting suspense where the stakes are higher than they have ever been before.

Synopsis:

Navy SEAL-turned-covert Homeland Security operative Scot Harvath is called into action once again, in this latest political thriller by "New York Times"-bestselling author Thor. Now available in a tall Premium Edition.

This is the second book in the Scot Harvath series I've read and will be the last. I have had it with stories that only see black and white, good and evil, etc. and ignore any nuances. This book fits the genre perfectly.

The plot revolves around Harvath saving the U.S. from evil Muslims by finding a missing Sura written by Mohammed just before he was poisoned in which Muslims are told that instead of killing all infidels and conquering the world they should get along with other religions. This document would supposedly embolden moderate Muslims to take over leadership from the radical elements. Yeah, right.

Harvath's major opponent is a former CIA assassin who converted to Islam and is at the beck and call of those radical elements. There are a number of other characters, good and bad, who remind me of the cardboard cutouts of my youth. Thor also paints a picture of a U.S. in which political correctness has taken over giving the evil Muslims a free hand to threaten the U.S. or they will scream "Islamaphobia".

Along the way much blood is spilled and Harvath manages to escape bullets, bombs, and well meaning law enforcement officers to accomplish his mission. He and others also do some incredibly stupid things to put themselves in danger and keep the plot from resolving itself too soon.

At the end of the book, Thor offers thanks to a number of people and especially Glenn Beck, the crazy conspiracy theorist as his major inspiration. At that point all that had gone before was made clear. My decision to pass on reading any other Thor authored books made even more sense.
