Got my hand on this book, because I liked Ice Station. This one is taking place after that, but can be read independently.
It is lots of action, very hard to belief escapes, booby traps etc.
Nevertheless it is a quick read, an in between book of some things that need more bite. ( )

Suspend belief for this military thriller. Unbelievable plots and impossible escapes from impending death aplenty. A rogue Air Force General supposedly executed, armed with his own Air Force Special Ops unit takes on the US President with his Marine Corp and Secret Service escort. Shane Schofield (Scarecrow) and his team battle for control of a secret military laboratory and bioweapons facility, trying to prevent racial and political disaster. Yet, there is even more treachery as some of the Air Force team is a mercenary group for a South African faction with a third agenda. Lightning fast pace. ( )

Like many of these Shane Schofield books they take a bit of suspended disbelief and a lot of accepted probable impossibility. The one thing though you can always depend on with this series is non-stop action and an escape from reality. They are just good, fun stories. Matthew Reilly is a genius when putting words on paper to create a memorable adventure. No matter how improbable the story may get you can always be sure that this author going to tie the story line together masterfully with clever twists and details. You just have to lean back and enjoy the ride. ( )

Once again i loved it! Its not "deep" meaningful writing so if thats what your looking for then this is not it but if you want high-octane action, shooting, stunts, fun etc then your in the right place! Shane is awesome! I would marry him just so he can swing me from his maghook while dropping 300ft through an elevator shaft!! Who wouldnt!! : ) lol ( )

Another Scarecrow book, an action hero who can do no wrong other than being a little awkward with women he loves. The usual Reilly credulity straining action narrative which is easy to breeze through. ( )
