From the international bestselling author of Seven Deadly Wonders comes the fourth installment in the thrilling Scarecrow series—it’s Reilly’s most action-packed adventure yet.

Marine captain Shane Schofield, call-sign “Scarecrow,” is back, this time thrown into battle against a large and secretive terrorist group known only as the Army of Thieves. The organization has seized control of an island in the Arctic and when the U.S. government finds out about its sinister plans to destroy the planet, the President has no choice but to enlist Scarecrow and his ragtag crew to fight against them.

Told in Reilly’s characteristically gripping prose, Scarecrow and the Army of Thieves features white-knuckle suspense and page-turning adventure, as a likeable hero battles truly evil villains. The action never stops, taking the reader on a journey of discovery, uncovering fantastic secrets about the CIA and other large governmental organizations.

About the Author:

Matthew Reilly wrote his first book, CONTEST, in 1994 whilst attending the University of New South Wales. It was rejected by every major publishing company This caused Reilly to self-publish 1,000 copies using money borrowed from his family. Reilly went to a bookstore in Sydney and asked if he could place the copies on one of their book shelves. They accepted the offer . Very shortly after, the books had sold out and the owner of the bookstore called Reilly to order more books. One copy was read by Pan Macmillan, who immediately signed Reilly up to write ICE STATION, which became an international bestseller. Since then, he has been published in over fifteen countries, including Norway, Australia, the United States, the United Kingdom, Canada, Germany, The Netherlands, South Africa, Japan and China. Reilly's main influences include Michael Crichton, Steven Spielberg, George Lucas, and possibly Art Bell. His latest work is a novel called THE SIX SACRED STONES, the sequel to SEVEN ANCIENT WONDERS.

Review:

“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.”

Chicago Tribune

“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.”
