A new military thriller is “Scarecrow Returns” by Matthew Reilly. Deep in the Arctic, a long-forgotten Soviet military base 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 called the Army of Thieves seizes this remote base there is only one team close enough to sabotage them – a ragtag band of Marines and civilians lead by Captain Shane Schofield, known as Scarecrow.
