As 'Scarecrow' Schofield watches his mission to eliminate a Siberian turn into a bloodbath, he realises he has been tricked -- and now become the prey rather than the predator. For a shadowy consortium of staggering power and wealth has included his name on a list of fifteen targets to be eliminated without fail by twelve noon that same day. Now every high-powered bounty hunter on the planet is on his trail, while he must simultaneously track down the perpetrators of a conspiracy about to reduce many of the major cities of the world to ashes. From Arctic Russia to the Afghan border, to France's Atlantic Coast, to a speed-of-light conflict over the Suez Canal, every form of ultra-tech weaponry comes into play in a spellbinding action drama unfolding within a mere twenty-four hours.a#39;Ia#39;m not sure wea#39;re gonna last that long. ... Schofield threw the WRX round a tight bend - and was suddenly presented with a vista of the road ahead of him. ... now two big semi-trailer rigs - minus their long trailers - were rushing down its steep slope at considerable speed, rumbling toward Schofield and Ganta#39;s fleeing car.
