52 in 52 - book 25 - Area 7 - Matthew Reilly

Keeping with the trend - and because I was on an adventure high - I decided to keep reading the other Matthew Reilly books whilst I waited *ever so patiently* for the 4 Legendary Kingdoms to be released. While Jack West Jr is an Aussie ex-SAS set on saving the world from ending - and usually against the big powers of the globe, Scarecrow is a US Marine, as tough and determined as Jack West, fighting equally hard against the big powers of the globe.
Area 7 is top secret. After some embarrassing situations for the US Marines, they need to keep Scarecrow out of the media's reach - What better way than an assignment on the President's helicopter! The President is on a routine visit to the top secret facilities, Area 8 - where a new space project is underway, and then Area 7 - where bioweapon testing is going. Unbeknown to anyone the team is not working for the President any more. Scarecrow and his team have to keep the President alive while teams of highly trained and biologically enhanced soldiers try to kill him - BUT there is another factor - should the President's heart stop, 14 bombs will go off across America, due to a radio transmitter implanted in the President's heart during lung surgery years earlier...

An awesome read. I loved it! I'll read it again and again!
