The revelations from Richard Marcinko -- the fearlessly controversial Navy commando -- in his explosive #1 bestselling autobiography, Rogue Warrior, reverberated through the highest levels of the U.S. government. From his exploits leading SEAL TEAM SIX, the most effective and highly secret counterterrorist unit in the world, to his missions penetrating the Navy's most secure installations, Marcinko brought real-life adventure to a new level. But, bound by government restrictions, Marcinko was forbidden to tell the whole story. The answer was fiction -- Rogue Warrior: Red Cell, the take-no-prisoners bestseller with Marcinko as hero. Now the Rogue Warrior's back and he's hotter than ever, in a knockout novel of courage and nonstop action.
Under deep coverf, 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 events divert him to another mission. In Portsmouth, England, an aircraft carrier has been sabotaged. Thirty-six are killed -- including the British Admiral of the Fleet, and the American Chief of Naval Operations, one of the few friends the Rogue Warrior had left in the Navy. Marcinko elbows his way onto the case, where he discovers a SEAL's worst nightmare: a transnational terror network in the making, and no one paying attention. A holy war is brewing -- en elusive, modern-day Saladin, whose hunger for power is matched by his cruel genius, has taken control of a vast, violent religious movement that is encircling the globe, growing in strength, and lethally zeroing in on the West.
Defeating that global menace will be the supreme test of Marcinko's deadly GREEN TEAM, a top-secret unit that operates outside the U.S. military's chain of command. But others don't want Marcinko and his SEALs prowling and growling where they could actually do some good. Missions are compromised. Men die. Secrets are leaked. Governments are embarrassed. In London and in Washington, the political and military wolves look for a sacrificial lam -- and its Dick Marcinko they select for the slaughter.
For the Rogue Warrior -- always a renegade and now a fugitive -- it's time to declare a holy war of his own. The enemy may have the ultimate weapon of terror, but the men of the GREEN TEAM has Marcinko's Tenth Commandment of SpecWar: There Are No Rules -- Thou Shalt Win at All Cost!From Publishers Weekly:
The Rogue Warrior is back with a vengeance in this third adventure starring and narrated by foul-mouthed, fast-talking ex-SEAL Richard Marcinko, subject of the autobiographical Rogue Warrior and hero of the novel Rogue Warrior II: Red Cell. Marcinko's latest escapade opens with his new Green Team on a secret assignment from the Chief of Naval Operations to snatch a terrorist away from his Cairo hideaway. When a terrorist bomb kills Marcinko's mentor and friend, CNO Arleigh Secrest, Marcinko and team vow revenge. Their battle against traitors and terrorists is waged with high-energy heroics from Nice to Karachi, with enough testosterone to float a battleship. Marcinko gives new definition to the word tough; the character that he and coauthor Weisman have created to tell the story is loud, self-assured, self-aware and unabashedly chauvinistic? the embodiment of an American myth: the outlaw who gets the job done with an end-justifies-the-means morality. The highly energetic storytelling includes numerous informational, historical and anecdotal asides, none of which is dull. A novel for those who like in-your-face four-letter action.
