  • Dan Schwent
    After saving a man from a car bomb outside of a Paris cafe, Scot Harvath gets pulled back into the web of political intrigue. Scholars have uncovered the fabled last revelation of Mohammed, a revelation so shocking that it will shake radical Islam to its core. Can Harvath protect the scholars involved when a former CIA assassin turned Islam convert is gunning for them?The Last Patriot was a lot better than the other Brad Thor book I got for my bi...

    I looked this book up to put it on my ‘currently-trying-to-read’ list and noticed following the title: (Scot Harvath, #7). Number SEVEN? There are six more with this character? Shit. I am already hating this one and probably won’t make it to the end. Maybe the author wrote a few good books and then burned out on this one. It is poorly written, the characters are completely uninteresting, the American Government is trying to destroy the Musl...

    This was good. I am glad returned to this author.

    This book was really incredible. I loved the fast paced feel of it along with the need to solve the world problem. It really got me thinking about how our country is ran and how much goes on without us ever knowing about it. On page 190-191 the President is talking and saying how the next person to take office will be shocked at how much they did not know and what dangers are out there people are just trying to keep at bay. This book was great I ...

    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 t...

    The reason I give The Last Patriot 5 stars isn't just for the story, although improbable it is fast paced and edgy and keeps the reader totally engaged, I give also award 5 stars for shining a bright light into the reality of Islam in America and the danger of being politically correct. It is rather like Nero mythically fiddling while Rome burned after he had the fires set. Thor holds up a light in a dark room of denial. There are domestic terror...

    Book # 7, in the Scot Harvath seriesAlthough this thriller is part of a series and I prefer reading the books in sequence I had no trouble picking this one at this stage. I was fast taken in by this exiting story and enjoyed Scot Harvath attempts to uncover a revelation that could damage the standing of radical Islam. This book was on the New York bestseller while being banned in Saudi Arabia when it came out (no wonder).Being my first attempt re...
  • Henry
    Another terrific thriller in the Scot Harvath series from Brad Thor.
  • Corey
    Once again wildly entertaining, with a mixture of action and some history!An American Historian has been targeted for assassination by a band of Muslim Terrorists, a Historian that holds a clue to a long-lost mystery going back to the 1800's, a mystery involving a former US President, Thomas Jefferson! Something the Terrorists want to get their hands on and will do anything to get it. Only one thing stands in their way, Scot Harvath! In the wrong...
  • Fred
    This is my first Brad Thor book. I was really hoping for a 5 star read. I at least wanted to be able give this book 4 stars, but I couldn't. I liked it, but I can't say I REALLY liked it (I had hoped I could). Was it a good book? Yes, it was. It was much to quick a read though. Done and over in less than a week of evening reading. There were points I didn't want to/couldn't put the book down, which may be why I got through it so quickly. In the e...

    I found this book at the departure lounge in LAX. I'm now pretty certain as to why it was left behind. I can deal with tacky spy novel writing but this book was oozing with so much patriotic Americanism that it was pretty hard to stomach.I've read a couple of recent-ish spy novels lately and it's been very interesting to me. I used to read this genre a lot more but that was 15 years ago. As a Canadian who has experienced this gap in spy/thriller ...

    I have now discovered Brad Thor. This is the first book I read by him, yet after some really superficial research I have found that he has made quite a name for himself as a writer of what the book cover proclaims is a "thriller". I have also discovered that this particular book has landed Mr. Thor in a rather Thorny (no pun intended) controversy. And I can see why. Let me be clear about a couple of things. First, I would be dishonest if I said t...
  • Colin
    Boring, boring, boring. Great if you need a half hearted lecture about Islam. Bad if you want a book that is anything good. The writing is just passable. nothing breathtaking. I have a bad habit of reading more than one book at a time. It's really bad when I'm reading an author like Susanna Clarke at the same time as Brad Thor. When reading the work of a great author like Clarke, it only magnifies the weaknesses of a mediocre writer like Thor. I ...

    4.5! Fast-paced espionage...loved how he had several story lines going chopped up into small really kept things moving!
  • Michael
    This novel is packed with action and suspense. Fans who enjoyed Jason Bourne on the screen and in Robert Ludlum's books will enjoy this novel.As other reviewers have noted, it combines the character of prior Brad Thor thrillers with the puzzle solving of "The Da Vinci Code."The plot centers on the discovery of the final revellation given to Muhammed. It contains a strong rejection of Islimists who embrace violence to meet their objectives.Scot Ho...

    OMG, epic, epic fail. This is the kind of book that makes your soul cry out with the injustice that you invested your time and energy only to be utterly disappointed with the most unsatisfying ending imaginable. If you don't like books with really, really bad endings, don't read this. I wish I had been so warned!To clarify without spoilers, the entire story is based on good guys trying to accomplish something, but in the end the task that the goo...

    Unabridged audioIn this one Scott (Harvath) and his girl friend (recovering from the attempt on her life) are still on their rather unofficial and abrupt vacation. Against their will they get involved in another deadly affair.The search for a "last and suppressed" revelation of Mohammad is at the center of this book. With a search for a machine from the past that will transcribe "something" reminiscent somewhat of Da Vinci Code (though i really d...

    I found this book in a lending library at one of my jobs. It was so bad, so narrow-minded and overly simplistic, and so full of poorly designed characters and plot lines that I decided not to return it to the lending library. Instead, I threw it out. I did not want other people to read it and have their mind constrained. This book was a bunch of nonsense. It will make you dumber.
  • Stephanie
    I picked this book up because the cover blurb made me think it would be similar to Clancy or Baldacci. Not at all. The plot was pretty good but this guy's view of the world is scary. He actually acknowledges Glenn Beck (crazy-man) as a true hero. Yikes. Scratch this author from my "to-read" list.
  • D. F. Salvador
    After a promising beginning, the book lost all intrigue. The book became more of a wacko attempt to push an anti-Muslim agenda than to tell a story. The true terror is that there are people who really think this way.
  • Kami
    Dumb. Full of stereotypes. Only mediocre action. Don't know why I read to the end.
  • Jake
    Dumb. This was dumb. This was one-dimensional. This was not a page turner. This was like a parody of an already thin genre.
  • Melissa
    Another really good entry in the Scot Harvath series. Scot is recovering from the fallout from the last 2 novels. He's in Paris with his girlfriend when they see suspicious activity across the boulevard and end up saving a man who was the target of a car bomber. From this point on, it's a race against fanatics trying to destroy an important piece of history. One of the things I love about this series is how the author introduces interesting tidbi...
  • Luke Walker
    I really enjoy Brad Thor’s books. This one is no exception. For some reason, this one seemed a little slow getting started but when it hooked me I couldn’t put it down. I liked the Thomas Jefferson plot line in this book as well. Highly recommend!
  • Joshua
    For its genre, it's at the top. Exceptional pacing, plotting was mostly pretty tight, suspense and release near perfect. Enough realistic detail to pick up some interesting info. Dialogue wasn't strong, but that goes with most international spy thrillers. Great fun for quick read.
  • Bryan
    A delightful mix of historical fiction, Thomas Jefferson, Barbary pirates, an Indiana Jones style plot. Add hero Scot Harvath and team. Resulting in the best book I have read this year. 5 stars plus...
  • Mike Worley
    3 stars, nothing special here.
  • Madlyn
    This book was an incredible reader’s digest for me.
  • Angela Austin
    Love this series! The plot always is suspenseful and realistic. Will continue the series after a break!
