    DescriptionIt is the greatest bounty hunt in history. The targets are the finest warriors in the world-commandos, spies, terrorists. And they must all be dead by 12 noon, today. The price on their heads: almost $20 million each. Among the names, one stands out. The enigmatic Marine, Shane Schofield, who goes by the call-sign "Scarecrow." Schofield is plunged into a race around the world, pursued by a fearsome collection of international bounty hunters. The race is on and the pace is frantic as he fights for survival, in the process unveiling a vast international conspiracy and the terrible reason why he cannot, under any circumstances, be allowed to live! He led his men into hell in" Ice Station." He protected the President against all odds in "Area 7." But this time it's different, because he is the target. With all of his trademark action, Matthew Reilly continues to establish himself as one of the top thriller writers of today.

    Review quote
    "The text is all fury, akin to taking a James Bond film, cutting out everything but the action and running that at double speed. As much video game as novel. Reilly's admirers will love this one, and anyone interested in the outer limit of action writing should check it out."--"Publishers Weekly" "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. This thrill fest is highly recommended for all fiction collections-even the most jaded readers will need to fasten their seatbelts and hang on for dear life."--"Booklist" ""Scarecrow" should come with a blood pressure cuff shrink-wrapped to it. Nonstop action, adventure, and a HUGE surprise for fans of Reilly's other Schofield novels-what more could you ask for from a novel? You'll give up television forever after reading "Scarecrow"."--Bookreporter.com "Lightning-paced."--"Entertainment Weekly" "Move over, Jack Ryan and Dirk Pitt-Marine Shane "Scarecrow" Schofield is the next great action hero. Matthew Reilly's well-developed characters and nonstop action more than compensate for an implausible plot."--"Dallas Morning News" "The pace is breakneck... will hook you right from the start."--"Waterstone's Books Quarterly "(UK) "This is unashamedly ball-busting reading... it certainly clears the palette."--"Arena" (UK) "Here's pace, jargon, diagrams, gadgets and guns to get excited about... "Scarecrow" is breathless."--"Mirror" (UK)
