Brad Thor's #1 New York Times bestseller, The Last Patriot , is now available from Encore. 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 cafE, 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, listeners 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.

"This author has combined a terrorist plot with a story reminiscent of THE DA VINCI CODE. Thus, listeners not only get a good deal of action, but some complex plotting and history as well. George Guidall's capable reading fits perfectly with the suspenseful and historical elements, but he's a bit slow with the action sequences. Also, though one is, at first, somewhat cautious about the historical ties this plot seems to draw (the prophet Mohammed and Thomas Jefferson?), Guidall focuses attention on the protagonist, a former Navy Seal now attached to Homeland Security--and the mission to recover an artifact that, when revealed, will help stop terrorism once and for all. This, Guidall does well. A.L.H. (c) AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine"
