Publisher's Summary

As "Scarecrow" Schofield watches his mission turn into a bloodbath, he realises he has been tricked - and that now he's become the prey rather than the predator. For a shadowy consortium of staggering power and wealth has included his name on a list of 15 targets to be eliminated without fail by 12 noon that same day. Now, every high-powered bounty hunter on the planet is on his trail, while he must simultaneously track down the perpetrators of a conspiracy about to reduce many of the major cities of the world to ashes. From Arctic Russia to the Afghan border, to France's Atlantic Coast, to a speed-of-light conflict over the Suez Canal, every form of ultra-tech weaponry comes into play in a spellbinding action drama unfolding within a mere 24 hours.

An fast paced adventure

What made the experience of listening to Scarecrow the most enjoyable?

The story starts with a bang and never stops. The action moves from one scene to the next without having those quiet moments that can sometime stall a story or cause it to slow down.


Who was your favorite character and why?

Mother has to be my favourite. It's great to see a female character so unapologeticly badass and genuinely as useful to the story as the males, and not a love interest who's only purpose is to be saved by the 'hero'.


Which character – as performed by Steven Pacey – was your favourite?

I couldn't pick a favourite. The characters were all equally as good.


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

Yes

Epic!

I read this book when I was younger and it immediately got me hooked on Matthew Reilly Stories. I barely put down my phone when I had downloaded the audio book version!
