Welcome to the most dangerous place in the world.
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.

Wow - What a sequel! GET THIS NOW!
This is the sequel to Matthew Rilley's best selling all action, premier novel entitled "Ice Station". If you've not read/listened to Ice Station then don't panic as you can just jump in at this point and you'll be able to enjoy the ride but by checking out Ice Station first, you'll benefit from getting to know some of the characters which follow into Area 7 and so appreciate the relationships between them and come to love them all the more!
So, "what's it like" I hear you ask, well this is a non-stop rollercoaster of an action/adventure story that will keep you hooked with it's fast-paced twist and turns. Now yes, some aspects and events are a little far fetched and others have noted that some of Rilley's ideas are impossible in real life and often defy the laws of physics but it's just a story people! Most of Hollywoods blockbusters are riddled with impossible feats which simply couldn't happen in the real world! If you can take these scenes with the tongue in cheek manner in which they are written then Rilley's regular use of "artistic licence" can add to the escapism and overall fun of the action! This is a tale of good vs evil, honour vs greed, helicopter gun ships, heavily armed space shuttles, gory and gruesome death and near death injuries, high tech machinery, crazy treasonous air force generals, buckets full of nuclear warheads, secret military bases staffed by mysterious renegade special forces, convicted death-row prisoners, a new biological weapon that causes a horrific death and all this happens between the first and last pages!
I genuinely could not stop listening to this story and the twists, cliff-hangers and edge of your seat moments had me hooked! I mostly listened to this in my car during my daily commute but often I arrived at work and couldn't turn the engine off until I reached a point past the latest cliff-hanger! I was late into work numerous times!!
This audio book is amazing so don't delay, download it now and I promise you won't be disappointed!
