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.

By M. Denis Hill VINE VOICE on May 7, 2013
Format: Hardcover
I'm stopping at page 28. Can't get into the self-absorbed, jumping all over the place writing.
The footnotes in fiction strike me as contrived. And do readers really go for this flippant first-person voice?
I'm also put off by the lack of skill weaving in characters; it's a major indication of an author's skill how s/he provides needed background in series fiction. This book does not impress on that measure.
This strikes me as too much self congratulation, too little writing skill.

I enjoy reading Marcinko's books. I can never really figure out how much of them is his real life experience or how much is just made up. No matter. I find them taking me away from my current problems and anxieties and giving me an "escape" into another world where the bad guys get their asses kicked and the good guys win big. Always very entertaining, lots of violence where the good guys beat the tar out of the bad guys and no social sermons. My kind of book!

I've read every Marcinko book from the original to this one. I must say that the past few have seemed to be a lot more watered down and not nearly as accurate as they used to be. There were numerous mistakes ".356 magnum?" . I miss the old brash, shootin and lootin, un pc, demo dick that we all know and love. Its still a good book, they have just lost a lot of the edge that made the earlier books much more fun to read.
