Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Robin Monarch is the most hunted man in the world. His parents, an American cat burglar and a con man from Argentina, are killed when he is just 13, forcing him to live in the most dangerous slum in Buenos Aires. He joins the Brotherhood of Thieves, learns their 18-rule code of conduct, and survives, with the help of a nun. Eventually, Monarch becomes one of the CIA’s top operatives and is sent on a mission to derail an al-Qaeda plot called “Green Fields.” But when he discovers that Green Fields is something else entirely—and that his superiors are corrupt—he goes rogue, with arms dealers, Russian mobsters, and his own government all on his tail. This lightning-fast read brings to mind Robert Ludlum and Mission Impossible—and will definitely appeal to adrenalin junkies—but beyond the breakneck pacing, it comes up short, both in character development and believability. Sullivan undoubtedly learned pacing and the art of the short chapter as coauthor of James Patterson’s Private Games. --Stacy Alesi --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Review

Fast moving and well-written! Rogue reminded me of the Bourne books and movies, only it's much, much better. (James Patterson)

A true juggernaut of a thriller, pure adrenaline in print. With the creation of Robin Monarch, Sullivan has crafted a Jason Bourne for the new millennium. (James Rollins)

Diabolical! Filled with twists, turns, crosses, and double-crosses, Sullivan delivers a harrowing international thriller, while introducing one of the most compelling heroes since Jason Bourne. (Lisa Gardner)

A compelling, page-turning blend of spy and caper fiction: it's Robin Hood for the twenty-first century. Loaded with intrigue, laced with detail, and full of bone-shaking action, Rogue is the fantastic start to an exciting new series. (Jeff Abbott)

Format: Hardcover
Mr Sullivan's thriller "Triple Cross" was published in April of 2009 and the author was unfortunately quiet until earlier this year when he collaborated with James Patterson on "Private Games". "Rogue" is his own work and shows the talent Mr Sullivan has to capture and mesmerize his readers. Robin Monarch is introduced as a CIA operative that leaves the agency after discovering some very disturbing information about them while on a mission. He sets himself up as a security consultant to earn a living but has a very lucrative sideline which is not very savory to say the least. By chance Robin saves the life of a Russian mafioso, who than grabs the girl Robin is currently involved with. He tells Robin that he will pay him several million dollars if he will steal a weapon for for him, and will of course, also release the girl. The CIA in the personage of Robin's ex boss also wants the weapon and contracts him to steal it with the carrot of being able to return to the agency in good standing.

Mr Sullivan sketches out Robin's background in order to bring out his personality and motivations. Robin, the perfect name chosen for him, is shown as a 21st century Robin Hood, in effect robbing from the rich to help the poor. He begins life as an orphan on the streets of a Buenos Aires slum, and with the help of an angel of mercy taking him in picks himself up by his bootstraps
and forges his character as delineated by Mark Sullivan. It is almost a certainty that Robin is destined for more adventures in future Mark T Sullivan books.
"Rogue" is a fast and captivating read, with events rapidly coming one after the other keeping the reader going and not able to put the book down. Welcome back Mark, I trust that it won't be another four years before your work appears again.

3 of 3 people found the following review helpful By TChris TOP 100 REVIEWER on October 2, 2012
Format: Hardcover
According to Jack Slattery, the CIA's director of covert operations, the secret archives of Al-Qaeda can be found on a hard drive in an office building in Istanbul. Slattery orders Robin Monarch to lead a team into the building to steal a copy of the archives. Monarch has time to read a few of the archived files before bullets and explosions bring the mission to an unhappy conclusion. What he sees convinces him to leave the Agency and begin a new life. Shortly thereafter, an assassination attempt nearly brings that life to an end.

Eighteen months later, Monarch is in Switzerland bedding a woman named Lacey and pursuing a career as a security consultant -- with a lucrative side business that is rather unsavory, but perhaps less so than the job of a CIA operative. I found the incongruity disturbing at first, but it made sense after Mark Sullivan reveals more about Monarch's intriguing background -- and after learning what Monarch does with the wealth he acquires.

After Monarch unwittingly saves the life of a Russian gangster (and, of course, the Russian's beautiful girlfriend), Monarch is back on Slattery's radar. The Russian wants Monarch to steal a weapon, and says he will hold Lacey hostage until he completes the mission. Slattery's interest in Monarch intertwines with the Russian's, while a Chechen criminal who is competing with the Russian to obtain the weapon wants to use Monarch for his own ends. Monarch, of course, is stuck in the middle, and spends most of the novel trying to get unstuck.

Rogue is an enjoyable second-tier spy thriller. While the plot is fun, it doesn't stand out. Sullivan's writing style is a notch above that found in most spy thrillers, but it isn't top notch. Rogue is memorable only (if at all) for the character of Robin Monarch.

Format: Hardcover
For the last several months, I have been watching an interesting and intriguing introduction take place in the field of thriller literature. Mark Sullivan introduced a new character named Robin Monarch over a period of six months or so this year by rolling out three engaging and intriguing novellas, each complete in itself. The three offerings --- BROTHERHOOD, THE ART OF RENDITION and ESCAPE ARTIST --- not only provide a lead-in to ROGUE but also give the reader some background on Monarch's early life as an orphan on the rough streets of Buenos Aires. While it is not necessary at all to read what has gone before to fully enjoy his latest, your enjoyment of it nonetheless will be enhanced by reading what has gone before. Those, however, who have read the first three installments already know what to expect and will find their anticipation filled and patience rewarded, for ROGUE is a joy to read from beginning to end.

It would be easy to characterize the book's introduction as smart marketing, sharp publicity, or any other term one might care to use, but what Sullivan has been engaging in here is nothing more or less than excellent, creative storytelling. Period. Monarch, who spent his teens as a gang member and his early adult years in the U.S. Special Forces, is a CIA operative who turns his back on his job and the agency --- right in the middle of an operation --- when he unexpectedly learns a startling secret about his employer that leaves him disillusioned and angry. Monarch, possessing a skill set acquired as a street urchin and further developed by the American military, cannot stay idle for long. He sets up a security consultancy service that soon finds itself in demand.
