From Arctic Russia to the Afghan border, to France's Atlantic Coast, to a speed-of-light conflict over the Suez Canal, every form of ultra-tech weaponry comes into play in a spellbinding action drama unfolding within a mere 24 hours.

"James Bond and Dirk Pitt can step aside - a new action hero has arrived to take their place in Reilly's latest roller-coaster ride." (Booklist)
"Good fun, don't expect to a masterpiece."
Having read a number of books by Reilly I picked this especially for a long drive where I knew that I would not want anything too taxing that would be easy to listen to and follow. In that respect this was just the trick, action packed with a simple, if somewhat farfetched central premise. The reading was excellent with the character acting varied and consistent. Just don't think about the varied plot holes, amazing coincidences and and you will likely enjoy this... Just don't expect to remember the story in a few weeks.
"non-stop action romp"
Anyone who has read Matthew Reilly before will know what they are in for with Scarecrow, the name of his all-action American hero. Don't expect too much in the way of character development or detailed description - just hold tight while the rollercoaster accelerates to top speed and stays there until the very end. Undemanding, thoroughly enjoyable and well worth considering for your holiday read!
