Among the president's helicopter crew, however, is a young Marine. He is quiet, enigmatic, and he hides his eyes behind a pair of silver sunglasses. His name is Schofield. Call-sign: Scarecrow. Rumour has it, he's a good man in a storm. Judging by what the president has just walked into, he'd better be.

"Excellent Book, Not So Great Narrator."
Matthew Reilly's Area 7 is without a doubt one of my favorite action novels and its excellent use of fast past action coupled with rich characterization and on the edge of your seat style of writing proves to be a definite winner here, however the i found the narrator to be another matter all together, while the book warrants 5 stars i feel the narrator lets down the novel as a hole and i find his use of voice work to be at some points cringe-worthy, i thoroughly recommend the book, however you would be much better advised to pick up the Sean Mangan narrated version of the book as he is a far superior narrator and fits the genre the book is going for much better than Steven Pacey Does.
Matthew Reilly has a similarity to each of his books so far but for escapism is does the job with absolutely non stop action.
