In a desert wasteland, framed by the shimmering fastness of the Judean Hills, lie the ruins of the fortress called Masada. Overlooking the Dead Sea and the salt mines that were once Sodom and Gomorrah, the stone palaces of Herod brood a thousand feet above the desolate countryside, where the Jewish revolt against Rome of AD 70 ended in the self-immolation of 960 people. According to legend, the defenders of Masada, rather than be taken prisoner by the Roman Tenth Legion, killed themselves, their wives, and their children the night before the Romans took the fortress.

David Hall, an American nuclear engineer, arrives in Israel on a mission of truth. Believing that the defenders killed themselves to protect a great secret, Hall plans to explore the heavily guarded site and, he hopes, discover the real reasons behind the dramatic end of the Roman siege. Hall is shadowed by an Israeli archaeologist, Judith Ressner, an attractive but reserved professor with an agenda of her own. There is more than history hidden within the mountain, and Hall soon finds himself the target of ferocious Israeli security forces bent on defeating his quest, who will stop at nothing to protect Masada from intruders.

Combining dynamic history with a highly charged contemporary story of adventure and espionage, The Last Man is a thought-provoking thriller of the Middle East, past and present.

    " This one got a bit fanciful, but had some interesting history of Israel. "

    " Pretty good mystery/thriller. It's fun, and it's holding my interest. "

    " While I really enjoy reading Deutermann's work, this was not one of my favorites. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Weaver "Andy" | 12/10/2013

    " One of my favorite authors. Good story line seems a slight turn from his typical writings.. Somewhat predictable but held my interest throughout the protagonist's adventures. Over all a very enjoyable read. "

    " Listened to the audiobook ... this book really surprised me. Somehow P.T. Deutermann brought together a plot with a nuclear engineer, scuba diving, archeology and Masada. Nicely done. "

    " Great history / fiction. Also a thriller read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Linda | 6/26/2013

    " Intriguing plot. Lots of adventure and realistic take on political scene in which it all transpires. Dragged in places...too much technical stuff. The bowl was a thought-provoking element, but it didn't need to glow. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Steve Gross | 6/22/2013

    " Workmanlike, not very exciting thriller that centers on Masada, about which you will learn a lot. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mbk | 12/17/2012

    " Interesting story that made me interested in learning more about the historical event at issue. Started off very slow but about 1/2 way through it became hard to put down! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Pammy | 10/31/2012

    " Slow-moving at first, but then I couldn't put it down! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Noreen Ackerman | 10/10/2012

    " It had a slow start & tended to plod, but good once into half of the book & on to the end of the book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sherri Vigil | 8/4/2012

    " Having been physically to Masada, The detail just brought back the experience. I wasn't wowed by the "thriller" aspect of the plot. It also moved quite slowly and was a bit predictable. Not bad but not what I expected. "
