All the way to the shores of Tripoli! And back to Monticello!
Harvath, disillusioned and on the outs with President Rutledge after he was kept from fighting to protect his own loved ones, is wandering around Europe with his lover. She’s sufficiently recovered from the grievous wounds she suffered at the hands of an assassin targeting Harvath and those around him.
They stumble into and foil a terrorist incident in Paris, then find themselves protecting an American professor they rescued.
They learn more about his research, and that of an Islamic scholar he was working with. It all involves a last revelation of the prophet Muhammed, one that if true and made public would change the Koran to cut the legs out from under Islamists and jihadis.
There are lots of players - the Islamic scholar working on the Koranic equivalent of the Dead Sea Scrolls, the American professor with a very powerful backer studying Jefferson’s angle, Islamists who want to foil them and have recruited a dangerous op on their side, the FBI, the CIA, etc. Harvath becomes a wild card in it all.
But for him to operate he’ll have to make his peace with President Rutledge and the entire American security apparatus, which for the moment considers him PNG. He’ll have to protect his girlfriend Tracy from the French police. And - who will feed his dog?
In more serious considerations, in a book written back in the 2000s, Thor ponders the threat Islamists pose to Western civilization. Some may think it's dated but looking ahead, you wonder if the new state of Talibanistan will make this a problem once more.
