Editorial Reviews

Review

“The most colorful, hell-raising, bomb-throwing ex-SEAL commander of them all.” ―Playboy

“The appeal of this series lies in Marcinko's sense of humor mixed with traditional thriller elements, creating a laugh-out-loud read that somehow melds the wackiness of Janet Evanovich with a military thriller a la Clancy.” ―Booklist

“Th man who pioneered the kind of special ops unit that took down bin Laden…” ―CNN

“Founder of the elite ‘SEAL Team 6'…that many believe led the assault on bin Laden's compound.” ―The Washington Post

About the Author

RICHARD MARCINKO is a living, breathing hero―he was honored with the silver star and four bronze stars for valor, along with two Navy Commendation medals. After serving in Vietnam, he started and commanded SEAL Team 6, the Navy's first Counter-terrorist command, and Red Cell, a high-level anti-terrorist unit whose exploits, fictionalized for security and legal reasons, have formed the basis of his novels. Besides an active speaking and consulting calendar, Marcinko keeps his hand in the field as the president of a private international security company. He lives in Warrenton, Virginia.
JIM DeFELICE is the author of many military based thriller novels and is a frequent collaborator with Stephen Coonts, Larry Bond, and Richard Marcinko, among other New York Times bestselling authors. He lives in New York.

I have read all of the Rogue Warrior books and look forward to each new book each year. It has been hard to get the book in any form right after it comes out since I have been overseas for the last few years. My being able to be one of the first to buy a (original) Kindle Fire when it was (briefly) available for sale at my base's PX last year has helped a lot, especially since the last few books have not made it overseas, for some reason (at least not to the on-base bookstores I have visited).
Anyway, this book was not bad, but not great. It was a lot like last year's book, overall. There seems to be less story development and use of the Red Cell International team members (Trace, Mongoose, Shotgun, Junior, etc) while most of the heavy lifting is still being left up to Marcinko himself, despite his acknowledgement in the last couple of books that he is getting older (he is over 70 in real life!). Let's see some more team members and let the younger team members do some more of the heavy lifting with each member having distinct personalities like the early books did and let Marcinko lead from the front but with less physicality on his part at the same time. Maybe bring back Stevie Wonder and/or Boomerang or some of the younger SEALS from the early books?
I understand that some prefer that Marcinko uses less profane language (Why? This is not supposed to be a PG book!), which he acknowledges early in, but add more character development and action in its place! After Violence of Action, the Rogue Warrior has been pardoned, why not let him (the team) interact more with active SEALS or even Seal Team 6? Where is Danny Barrett (mostly MIA in the last 2-3 books)? Trace's role is very small, as is Doc's.

I am an old school Rogue Warrior fan dating back to the early 90s and have bought all of Marcinko's books including the business book he wrote.

I just wonder how much of these he writes (or even reads) any more because there were a number of technical mistakes that were just careless and make you question the other tech details. He talks about a ".356 magnum" revolver and a "Strum" Ruger rifle. Come on. Those are little details but if your industry knowledge is that limited whoever IS writing these needs to pick another genre.

Nevertheless a good story about Mexican crime gangs...I wonder how close to reality this is.

Another entertaining, action-packed, and humor-filled Rogue Warrior adventure, as this time Demo Dick and his "band of merry murdering marauders" (as he used to refer to his teams back in his earlier books) this time square off against Mexican drug cartels and their Hezbollah connections. As enjoyable and readable as Marcinko's other novels, though I feel compelled to point out a few technical gaffes:

--Marcinko & DeFelice lump in Pakistanis and Afghanis with "Arabs;" though they're predominantly Muslim peoples, they're NOT Arabs.

--On two different occasions, Marcinko & DeFelice refer to a shotgun's "bullets." Shotgun ammunition is never referred to as "bullets," but rather as "shells" or "slugs"--I would expect a Navy SEAL of all people to know better (or perhaps this error is more DeFelice's fault than Marcinko's?)!

--The author(s) repeatedly refer to U.S. Customs and Immigration as if they were separate entities, when in fact they got merged into the same agencies (Customs & Border Protection and Immigration & Customs Enforcement) back when the Department of Homeland Security (or "Homeland Insecurity" as Dick calls it) was stood up in 2003.

Oh well, enough nitpicking, enjoy the book, HOOYAH!

P.S. I wonder how Shotgun (the human character, that is, not the firearm) manages to pass Red Cell's PT tests with all that junk food that he constantly eats!?

Classic Marcinko. Run, gun, have fun. The last two books have him slowing down a bit. Maybe he's making room for Junior? Only time will tell! I never get tired of these books.

Old Rogue has written better before. I did like the book but he certainly has better ones. Don't know bout you but I'm starting to get bored with everything going wrong. Whatever he does it almost never goes right. The stakes didn't seem that high and there is no gripping climax. The story just flows till the end. RW is sent on a mission to Mexico to find a kidnapped girl and he ends up kidnapping a cartel boss. He discovers the cartel is working with hezbollah and there are underground tunnels leading to the U.S. The story mainly focuses on finding a female cop's missing grandparents. When they do find them, the unravelled story is nothing great. I suppose it could've been worse.

I've been reading his books for several years and THIS is a good one. Why? Great story telling and it's fun. AND, while most of you don't care and will laugh at me...so be it...As a Christian, I truly enjoy action novels and I admire Marcinko a lot. BUT I don't like the foul language, but in this book it is cut way back. Marcinko even makes a joke about it IN the book as he is always breaking the "fourth wall" and speaking directly to the reader. So thank you for that and thank you as well for the great stories. And frankly, thank you Dick for your service to our country! - Read his books, great lessons, fun stories and a lot of good insights on war and so much more.
