    Any additional comments?

    I would love to listen to selected passages, but I am unable to find a way to navigate. I feel this is particularly important for an audio Bible.

    When the Rogue Warrior travels to India to help supervise security arrangements for the upcoming Commonwealth Games, he and his team find themselves up to their skivvies in terrorists of all types - Pakistanis. But it’s not just the Games that are being targeted for disruption: Demo Dick and his young bucks uncover a plot to steal all seventy nuclear warheads the Indians have amassed for war against the Pakistanis.

    Story
    Where does Rogue Warrior: Domino Theory rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Marcinko & DeFelice rate up there with Clancy and Cussler, with added humor andan attitude only arrived at by having "been there and done that".


    What other book might you compare Rogue Warrior: Domino Theory to and why?

    Clive Cussler's "Oregon Files" books. Similar action and an equally (although fictional) engaging main character.


    What about Peter Ganim’s performance did you like?

    Well read, good pacing, understanding of Marcinko 's own delivery, and a pretty good grasp of accents. Doesn't make an integral female voice sound like a transvestite!


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Not written with that emotion an intended result.


    Any additional comments?

    Simply pure escapism. When I desire erudite prose, I choose another author. When I want good fun, fast action, and irrepressible manliness "Demo Dick" does just fine.
