'It is America's most secret base, hidden deep in the Utah desert, an Air Force installation known only as Area 7. And today it has a visitor: the President of the United States. He has come to inspect Area 7, to examine its secrets for himself.

'But he's going to get more than he bargained for on this trip. Because hostile forces are waiting inside...

'Among the President's helicopter crew, however, is a young Marine. He is quiet, enigmatic, and he hides his eyes behind a pair of silver sunglasses. His name is Schofield. Call-sign: Scarecrow. Rumour has it, he's a good man in a storm. Judging by what the President has just walked into, he'd better be...'

y separately published work icon Scarecrow Matthew Reilly , Sydney : Macmillan , 2003 Z1070440 2003 single work novel thriller


There are 15 targets, 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 on the target list, one stands

out. An enigmatic Marine named Shane Schofield,

call-sign: Scarecrow.


And so Schofield is plunged into a headlong race

around the world, pursued by a fearsome

collection of international bounty hunters -

including the 'Black Knight', a notoriously

ruthless hunter who seems intent on eliminating

only Schofield.

'The race is on and the pace is frantic as Schofield

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.

This time it's different.

'Because this time SCARECROW is the target.' (Publication summary)

'At an abandoned Soviet base in the Arctic, the battle to save the world has begun...

The Secret Base
'It is a top-secret base known only as Dragon Island. A long-forgotten relic of the Cold War, it houses a weapon of terrible destructive force, a weapon that has just been re-activated...

A Renegade Army
'When Dragon Island is seized by a brutal terrorist force calling itself the Army of Thieves, the fate of the world hangs in the balance, and there are no crack units close enough to get there in time to stop the Army setting off the weapon.

One Small Team
'Except, that is, for a small equipment-testing team up in the Arctic led by a Marine captain named Schofield, call-sign SCARECROW. It's not a strike force; just a handful of Marines and civilians. It's not equipped to attack a fortified island held by a vicious army. But Scarecrow will lead the team in anyway, because someone has to.

'The ultimate hero is back, facing the ultimate army of villains.' (From the publisher's website.)
