Scarecrow and the Army of Thieves (Scarecrow #4)
Deep in the Arctic, a long-forgotten Soviet military base known only as Dragon Island enshrouds a weapon of unimaginable destructive force - a Cold War doomsday device with the power to obliterate the planet. When a mysterious and brutal terrorist group known as the Army of thieves seizes control of the island and unleashes the weapon upon an unsuspecting world, there is only one team close enough to sabotage them: a motley equipment-testing crew of Marines and civilians led by Captain Shane Schofield, call-sign Scarecrow. Outnumbered, outgunned, and with the fate of humanity hanging in the balance, Scarecrow only has a few short hours to bring down the Army of Thieves or see the Earth go up in flames.
Matthew Reilly is the international bestselling author of ten novels: Contest, Ice Station, Temple, Area 7, Scarecrow, Hover Car Racer, Seven Ancient Wonders, The Six Sacred Stones, The Five Greatest Warriors and Scarecrow and the Army of Thieves, and one novella, Hell Island.
