Book #14 - Area 7

Another re-read for me, this one of the second Scarecrow book. It's after Ice Station, and Scarecrow is assigned to the Presidential Marine detail. He accompanies the President to Area 7, a secret base in the Nevada desert.

As we expect, all hell breaks loose. A convicted Air Force officer, supposedly dead, has taken control of the base, with loyal Air Force special forces troops helping him. They plan to kill the President, who must try and survive while also ensuring he gets his handprint on the nuclear football every hour or bombs explode all over the US.

Scarecrow is there, bolstering the Secret Service and working to stop the forces against them, including South African special forces and Chinese spies. It's a wild one.
