Overview

Just how far would Corporate America go for revenge if somebody wrote a book telling the world how Big Business's insatiable greed had brought America's middle class to its knees?

A quiet, unassuming man named Thomas Soles did write such a book. And not only did it quickly become an international bestseller, but he was also awarded the Nobel Prize for it. But not everybody is happy. When he and his wife return home with the coveted Swedish prize, the shock of their lives awaits them inside their modest New York apartment. It's a grisly scene, with not only death threats written in blood on the walls, but something equally disturbing inside their refrigerator.

Knowing for sure now that there's a corporate lynch mob out to get him, Thomas and his wife have no choice but to flee their lifelong home. They set out across America in an RV, hoping to find a safe haven somewhere. But finding such a place isn't all that easy. Everywhere they go there's danger hot on their trail,. Sometimes it's right smack in front of them.

    Well worth the read. Am beginning to understand the soul of this

    Well worth the read. Am beginning to understand the soul of this author. Read Beyond Nostalgia first and spent most of the day today reading...which I never do, but I couldn't get away from the story. The only disturbance was the reminder of how much hatred there is in this country.

    I had trouble putting down The Last American Martyr by Tom Winto

    I had trouble putting down The Last American Martyr by Tom Winton, too curious to see what happened next.

    Thomas Soles, an unemployed doorman, writes a book about the effect of Corporate America's greed  on ordinary families and then win's a Nobel Prize for it. As a result, life takes a "harrowing turn" for him. He and his wife flee, hoping to find a safe place to live. Always vigilant, there is no peace.

    The book is about faithfulness to one's convictions and to one's love, friendship and its many forms, and a sad commentary on American life and how easily a hero can fall from grace in the public's eye.
