Someone has done Matthew Reilly a great disservice. This is the same book inside as Scarecrow Returns. I mistakenly bought both books on the same order and a m having trouble returning this book for my money. Caveat Emptor, Let the buyer beware.

Love all Matthew Reilly's books. He is one of my favorite authors. This book is so good. It's the kind of book that is so hard to put down that you end up reading it into the wee morning. It's so action packed and exciting. :)

If you like fast action just like an action movie you will love this book. It follows the other books in the series and gives a little more depth to the main characters.

One of the single best books ever written. Plain and simple. This novel was a work of art. Congrats Mr. Reilly.

This was a typical Reilly book; a page-turner with outrageous & gruesome fight scenes, plenty of blood & guts & some hard-to believe recoveries from life-threatening situations. The reader was left hanging by the ending which will probably lead to a sequel with the same villian.

I have to start off saying I am a huge fan of Matthew Reilly and his Scarecrow books are my favorites but somehow this one just did not feel the same. It's been years since the last book but I do not recall there being this much swearing in the past books. It does have the usual over the top action and implausible scenarios that I've come to expect and love from Reilly.Scarecrow is still recovering from the horrible death of his girlfriend Gant and it was interesting finding out the course of treatment that lead him to be able to return to duty. I was happy to see Mother back and having Scarecrow's back but there is the small tangent story about her marital issues due to her devotion to Scarecrow that I felt was unnecessary and just out of place.What I did love was Bertie, the experimental robot that makes up part of the research team Scarecrow is babysitting. He kind of reminds me of a loveable Number 5 from the Short Circuit movie (and yes I realize I am dating myself here). He is integral to Scarecrow surviving some of the most harrowing situations we have seen him encounter so far. The truth behind the Army of Thieves was my favorite part of the story. It is full of those twists and turns that is so unbelievably sick and conspiracy theory-ish(I know, not a real word) that it does kind make you wonder if it is so far fetched that there may be a grain of truth in it.While not one of my favorites from Reilly I was hooked on the book and it was nice to see Scarecrow back despite a few rough spots.

Matthew Reilly¿s ¿Scarecrow Returns¿ is a good, exciting read, as usual, although I think some of the newness of the series has worn off.If you¿ve never read Reilly before, you must understand what you¿re getting into. If you¿re looking for character development, literary prose, deep subjects, and such, then move along. Reilly¿s books (the Scarecrow and Jack West series specifically) have little to none of that. They are, however, packed with lots of flying bullets, destruction, gore, amazing (but wholly unbelievable) stunts, and truly non-stop action. They¿re fun to read.Back to ¿Scarecrow Returns.¿ Here, we find Marine Captain Shane ¿Scarecrow¿ Schofield and his team working in the Arctic. A diabolical madman and his ¿Army of Thieves¿ have taken over an old Soviet base and plan on doing serious damage to Earth and much of its inhabitants. How they intended to do so is pretty cool, although probably completely unrealistic.Along with Scarecrow and his sidekick Mother, a few others join him in his mission, including Bertie, a little mobile robot. Even for Reilly, Bertie¿s a little over the top.My only real beef with the book (other than Bertie) is that Scarecrow¿s frequent means of getting out of trouble¿his Maghook¿is getting a little clichéd. But if you¿re looking for pure escapism, a good guy vs. bad guy action-packed story, it¿s hard to go wrong with Reilly.

A fast paced action thriller that's guaranteed to keep you from putting it down. If it were made into a film it would make a James Bond movie look slow and dull in comparison.

The other reviews do not rate the book which is a great. The reason the names are different is because in Australia the book is called Scarecrow and the army of thieves.
