    There are 15 targets. And they must all be dead by 12 noon, today. The price on their heads: $20 million each.One hero.Among the names on the target list, one stands out. An enigmatic Marine named Shane Schofield, call-sign: SCARECROW.No Limits.And so Shane Schofield is hunted by gangs of international bounty hunters, including the 'Black Knight', a ruthless hunter who seems intent on eliminating only him.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.#87 in  Australia's Top 100 Favourite Homegrown Reads #86 in ABC My Favourite Book  "...a metal storm of a book."  The West Australian "James Bond and Dirk Pitt can step aside - a new action hero has arrived to take their place."  Booklist"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
    "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)
