Afterwards, America will never be the same.
Jake Grafton and Tommy Carmellini suddenly find themselves on the wrong side of the law when a public act of violence throws the country into chaos just before a presidential election.

Wow - what a story that would fit with the current administration and its fascination with political correctness and back room politics. I have read all of Mr. Coonts books and this is one of the best. I am sure all the liberals will be giving this book one star and asking to have it banned.
In the movie version of Tom Clancy’s classic The Hunt for Red October, Admiral Joshua Painter (Fred Dalton Thompson) says, “This business will get out of control. It will get out of control and we’ll be lucky to live through it.”
He could have been speaking in Steve Coonts’ compelling new novel, Liberty’s Last Stand. In it, Coonts fans will find a thriller master on top of his game. Intricately plotted with a wealth of credible characters, this excellent “what if” novel is deeply layered, addressing political, cultural, military, and legal aspects with equal facility.
Coonts’ enduring protagonist Jake Grafton is head of the CIA facing a chilling threat. President Barry Soetero uses terrorist actions to declare martial law, dismiss Congress, squash dissent, and imprison political opponents. One detainee is Grafton, tortured to “confess” plotting against the regime.
Want to irritate a liberal? Read this book. Barry Soetoro? Rush Limbaugh? This book could have been pulled from the uncensored newspapers. That it was published and not immediately banned by the current federal administration is nothing sort of amazing. Jake Grafton and Tommy Carmellini again are placed in harms way, this time by the President of the US. The book is accurate, detailed, believable and absolutely will bring a smile to your face.
