Publisher's Summary

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. Rumor has it, he's a good man in a storm. Judging by what the President has just walked into, he'd better be.

Area 7 lacks something

Having read three Reilly books previous to this title. I enjoyed Contest a great first book, but sadly found his Seven Ancient Wonders series wanting. I would regard Area 7 at an uncomfortable middle ground between the two. This novel would make a great film, as most Reilly books would. I feel that in this case as with most of his books they lack something as a novelist. Reilly is of course great at keeping the pace and tension in the novel and writes very, very film orientated. Sadly when Reilly describes a scene with 'They saw a truly awsome sight' as he did in Seven ancient Wonders, a prose he continued in Area 7. I feel he lacks the technical skill of Clancy. If audable included Ton Clancy as a substitute I would definetly choose that master of over Reilly any day of the week. A compliment Reilly would not be offended by as Clancy is Reilly's inspiration and all time hero. If he reads this no offence mate, I will try another Reilly book and hopes his skill improves.

forgot this is fiction

Would you listen to Area 7 again? Why?

I never do a review untill I have listened to the book twice, I am at the moment going through some of the books I enjoyed the first read & remembered it.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Area 7?

The research that must of gone into this book, I will not spoil the listeners enjoyment by telling parts of the book, just that it is an excellent & exciting book.

What about Sean Mangan’s performance did you like?

excellent, clear and goes with the mood of the book well

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

most certainly, I don't always get that kind of chance, but I love the feeling of some thing to look forward to, at a second reading, by this I mean the second part of the book.

Any additional comments?

I think I have said all I need with out giving away any of the story, I hate it if I know too much. It is an excellent thriller all I will say is, very exciting.
