When Richard Marcinko wrote his best-selling autobiography, Rogue Warrior, he and co-writer John Weisman were bound by government restrictions and could only tell a fraction of his incredible story. Now the tales he could not tell, the secrets he could not reveal explode in Rogue Warrior II: Red Cell - a riveting ne novel with Marcinko himself as the hero.
"Good story, but..."
The Rogue Warrior is invading Germany with a blitzkrieg of bravado. His secret assignment: recover a pair of U.S. ADM's—Atomic Demolition Munitions—lost in the Rhine Valley. Yet, what begins as a simple SEAL mission explodes in his face when terrorists visit the cache site. With scandals at home and fresh hotbeds of political and military tensions, America's diplomatic priorities are everywhere but eastern Europe—and the Rogue Warrior and his SEALs must take matters into their own hands.
Dangerous times require dangerous men. And there isn't a man alive more deadly than the Rogue Warrior. Captain Richard "NMN" Marcinko must uncover the truth behind recent attempts to destabilize Azerbaijan, the tiny former Soviet republic that holds the key to the oil-rich Caspian Sea. A pipeline to the West is planned, and both Russia and Iran want control.
The Rogue Warrior's taking a flying leap -- a high-altitude jump over the South China Sea. His mission: scuttle a Chinese freighter's cargo of nuclear hardware and its crack crew of naval commandos. It's a leave-no-tracks, take-no-prisoners operation, and business as usual for Marcinko. But on board he makes a chilling discovery: a cache of state-of-the-art command and control equipment, all made in the U.S.A. -- and primed for America's destruction!
"great audio book. I will listen to again"
Under deep cover, on direct orders from the Oval Office, the Rogue Warrior and his GREEN TEAM of U.S. Navy SEALs have slipped overseas to snatch a terrorist and bring him to justice in an American courtroom. But Dick Marcinko is diverted to England, where an aircraft carrier has been sabotaged killing 36 - including the American Chief of Naval Operations, one of the few friends the Rogue Warrior had left in the Navy.
The Rogue Warrior, the SEAL commando of eight explosive thrillers, must now exile inside the lethal world of Irish Republican Army terrorists - a battle no one else will touch. From top-secret diplomatic tunnels beneath London to the high seas off the Azores, Detachment Bravo is a fast-paced, furious, in-your-face adventure.
"It's a Marcinko book alright!"
No one knows SpecWar - deep-cover commando operations conducted with absolute secrecy and total ruthlessness by the world's most deadly counterterrorist units - better than Richard Marcinko. Now the Rogue Warrior returns in a raw, authentic novel of terrorism striking at the heart of the American government and the military. Once again, the Rogue Warrior and his team of SEALs have been called into action.
The Rogue Warrior has come to Moscow to investigate the assassination of Paul Mahon, U.S. Defense attach in Russia. Marcinko knows who killed him -- Andrei Yudin, a godfather in the Russian Mafia -- and he wants to know why. Instead, he finds a cabal of corrupt, mob-linked russian politicians. The revelation gets him yanked back to Washington, where orders come down to disband his elite team of SEALs.
