Fifteen names, one hero, no limits.
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 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.
If you like Clive Cussler then you're like this. It's a bit more visceral than Cussler, and Reilly is not afraid to kill off a leading character or two. I would recommend listening to Ice Station first, although it's not essential. One small gripe, is that often a character is reading a computer print out, and I'm sure if I was reading the book I would just scan the page, but when listening I don't need to hear every line of text. That said it was an exciting listen, a great one to take on holiday.
Just wish iTunes had the other 2 titles in the series.
