Matt Reilly's books are like a comic book roller coaster: impossibly fast-paced, & wildly entertaining. They're not intended to be taken seriously; they are, instead, intended to give the reader a good time. I've never yet read one of his books that failed to delight, & this one is no exception.

Explosive action, hilarious lines & scenes, a heroic effort to save the world -- all of that, & much, much more, is found between these two covers. The first review on this page says it better than me, but I just want to add in one little observation. This book is riddled with events that will make you say "No effin' WAY" & if it's your first ever Reilly, you might not want to even finish it the first time one of those lunatic events happens, but all you need do is simply suspend disbelief, accept that Shane Scofield did the utterly impossible, & drive on. This is especially true of the near-climax, when what happens to Scofield & his friends is so far beyond belief that its turns back around & becomes believable again. Because, after everything else Scofield & Company have done, nothing else is impossible.

IMO, if this book isn't turned into a movie VERY FREEKIN' SOON, than Hollywood is more of a lost cause than I'd previously feared.

A couple of caveats, tho. Matt Reilly seems to have a significant "hard on" against the American CIA, & IMO, he simply does not understand Americans. In particular, one conversation, between Our Hero & a SEAL Team officer, I think would never have happened the way he depicts it. But Reilly has been called on these things before, & his explanations have seemed fair enough to me; he doesn't "hate" Americans, he just thinks that because America is the 800-pound gorilla of international affairs, that it's perfectly possible for some Americans to be nefarious "bad guys" with nefarious, anti-American intent. In this particular novel, nothing could be further from the truth. But despite their actual pro-American intent, they're STILL bad guys, & it's exceedingly pleasing to see the ways Scofield puts them down.

I can't freekin' wait for Reilly's next circus.
It's so easy
<Spoiler Alert. Plot elements may be discussed> This is the latest in Matthew Reilley's series about the character Scarecrow. Fans of the series know already that when Mr Riley writes a book, you want to clear your calendar for the day and stockpile lots of fast food - because fast is the very essence of these books. The action scenes are extraordinarily imaginative and fast-paced, and there is little time wasted on dialogue. What character development exists is usually measured in bullets spent or explosions rendered. These books typically read like a pinball machine going crazy at full speed. If somebody tried to make a movie of these books, people would say "no way they can do that stunt!". This latest finds Scarecrow and team on a supposedly restive routine mission shepherding some research geeks, the easy mission as a respite from previous arduous adventures. However, Fate drops a World-ending situation at their feet, and they have to respond in true Scarecrow fashion - fast, lots of destruction, narrow escapes, and unbelievably imaginative scenarios. I strongly urge readers to start with the first books and work forward to the latest in order to fully understand the background story of Scarecrow and his associates. Each of the books is a thrill-ride just like the last. You will not regret the purchase. For additional non-stop action of a more archeological kind, check out Mr Reilley's amazing series featuring Jack West, Jr , starting with "Seven Deadly Wonders". I cannot say enough good things about these books. Get them now!

Reading a Matthew Reilly "Scarecrow" novel can truly be classified as a "guilty pleasure" for some. Do readers need to suspend their sense of disbelief? Always! Is it sometimes "over-the-top"? Of course! But is it a rollicking, white-knuckle roller coaster ride? Absolutely!! Reilly's formula for his Shane Schofield (Scarecrow) novels includes Megalomanical masterminds, conspiracies in high office, world threatening evil, and enough constant action and brutality to satiate the hungriest action/thriller fans. Characterization emerges from the relentless pacing and action and the plots, while usually outrageous, make sense within the realm of the story.

In "Scarecrow Returns", Scarecrow once again must deal with an evil power hungry leader, The Lord Of Anarchy, who heads the "Army Of Thieves", a ragtag mercenary force that has commited crimes around the world in preparation for taking control of Dragon Island in the Arctic. Dragon Island is a remnant from the Cold War, a former Russian base designed for incredible experiments that the Lord Of Anarchy has seized to acquire a "Cold War doomsday device with the power to obliterate the planet".

Fortunately, Captain Schofield along with "Mother" and a few Marines and civilians are near enough to respond to the threat of world destruction in a matter of hours. Told in a real time atmosphere of a ticking clock, Scarecrow and his followers employ every teacnique and strategy imaginable to stop the impending doom. The body count rises as hundreds pay the ultimate price on both sides of the ticking clock. Throw in a force of French commandoes sent to assassinate Shane, an enraged polar bear colony, and conspirators within the CIA and you have the makings of a Matthew Reilly "grab your seat and hold on for the ride" Scarecrow action/thriller. Reilly and Scarecrow are not for everybody, I grant you. But I highly recommend this fun exciting read to those fans of action/suspense thrillers who love a fun easy read with breakneck pacing and nonstop "over-the-top" action.
