Publisher's Summary

It is the greatest bounty hunt in history. There are 15 targets, the finest warriors in the world, commandos, spies, terrorists, and they must all be dead by 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.
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.

Very Exciting

Reilly, is quickly becoming my absolute favorite writer. His characters are comic book heros. The story is non-stop excitement, to the point where you can not stop listening because there is always some sort of cliff hanger. If you want a true ACTION story, this is the story for you.

Non stop action and destruction

Captain Shane Schofield's pattern of leaving a wake of destruction behind continues in this third scarecrow novel. From the opening scene to the last scentence Scarecrow is one big thrill ride. Hang on and enjoy! Even if you haven't read the other books in the series this book stands on it's own. It's one of the best books I have listened to in a long time.
