Synopses & Reviews
From the internationally bestselling author, the fourth novel in the thrilling Scarecrow series featuring “some of the wildest and most sustained battles in an action thriller in a long time…and a little bit of conspiracy" (Chicago Tribune).
Deep in the Arctic, a long-forgotten Soviet military base enshrouds a weapon of unimaginably destructive force—a Cold War doomsday device with the power to obliterate the planet. When a mysterious and brutal terrorist group known as the Army of Thieves seizes control of the remote base and unleashes the weapon upon an unsuspecting world, there is only one team close enough to sabotage them: a ragtag band of Marines and civilians led by Captain Shane Schofield, known as “Scarecrow.” Outnumbered, outgunned, and with the fate of humanity hanging in the balance, Scarecrow has only a few short hours to bring down the Army of Thieves—or see the Earth go up in flames.
Filled with nonstop action and told in Matthew Reilly’s characteristically white-knuckle prose, Scarecrow Returns is a work of gripping suspense and complete exhilaration.
“Nobody writes action like Matthew Reilly.”
—Vince Flynn, New York Times bestselling author of Kill Shot
“Matthew Reilly is the king of hard-core action.”
—Brad Thor, New York Times bestselling author of Full Black
“Some of the wildest and most sustained battles in an action thriller in a long time. . . . Nonstop action, lots of explosions—and a little bit of conspiracy.”
“Matthew Reilly novels should come with health warnings on the cover. . . . [T]he non-stop life-threatening action . . . is not for the faint-hearted. It’s a wild ride.”
—The Daily Telegraph (Australia)
“For fans of action, [Matthew Reilly] is essential reading.”
