Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

The Rogue Warrior swings into action following an assassination by the Russian Mafia. After best sellers Red Cell, Green Team, and Task Force Blue, Marcinko is clearly going for the gold.
Copyright 1996 Reed Business Information, Inc.

From Kirkus Reviews

Following the assassination of an American military attach‚ in the former USSR, the Pentagon sends Marcinko on a priority (Designation Gold) mission to Moscow with orders to investigate the brutal murder. A sometime Navy SEAL (whose real-life exploits in Vietnam were chronicled in the 1992 bestseller Rogue Warrior), Marcinko has had an active (if fictive) post-retirement career in which he offers caustic first-person accounts of dirty jobs done for low-profile agencies of the US government (Rogue Warrior: Task Force Blue, 1996, etc.). On this outing, the salty soldier of fortune raises enough homicidal hell with mafiya goons and corrupt officials to get himself expelled from Russia. Although scarcely more welcome in Washington's upper echelons, he has come away with evidence that minions of the Kremlin are smuggling nuclear material to Syria through Werner Lantos, a shady Hungarian middleman who works out of Paris. Joining forces with Avi Ben Gal (an old pal from Israel's security service), Tricky Dick heads for the City of Light, where he and his three-man team learn that the venal go-between is at the heart of a vast conspiracy to restore the erstwhile Soviet Union's superpower status and trigger a renewal of the Cold War. While well-placed traitors in their own governments resist them at every turn, Dick and Avi resourcefully manage to mount an airborne raid on a covert atomic-weapons installation near Damascus. In a climactic engagement notable for their unwonted reliance on guile as well as firepower, the two lay waste to the secret ordnance facility, bag the reptilian Lantos, and determine who should pay for the transnational plot's near-miss horrors. With sociopolitical asides (on Bill Clinton, equal employment opportunity in the armed forces, and allied targets of opportunity) as hard-hitting as the narrative action, the aging but perdurably macho man delivers another diverting road show.

Format: Hardcover
To readers of the Rogue Warrior series, Richard Marchinko is the undisputed King of SpecWar novels. This new book only reinforces that idea. Careful examination of the book as in the other titles gives you numerous nuggets of information. Not only is the novel exciting but those who can read between the lines find a treasure trove of information.

King Richard again goes where Clancy and other "War Fiction" writers dare not tread. You will feel like you are on point with Dick looking for all the nasty tangoes and after obtaining your objective you can smell the Bombay Gin in the air. A read you will enjoy many times over

Designation Gold was not as good as Marcinko's other books. He contradicted some of his comments from earlier books. Also, it seems this was written by a different author...it just didn't read as well as earlier books. But it was still entertaining.

Demo-Dick is back in rare form with an indepth story and plenty of in-your-face action from the king of specwar adventures. Not for dip-dunks or technocrats, but Marcinko-ites will recognise it as his best work since the original Rogue Warrior
