It's Richard Marcinko; what else can I say?! This is not his best book, nor is it his worse book; but none the less, I enjoyed it. I wish he was more relevant to the Spec Ops environment these days, but he has been retired for some time now. He is one my favorite authors, so I will buy and read every book he writes. One of the things I really do enjoy about his stories is that he places himself directly "in the line of fire", in harm's way, and leads from the front. I know he did this as a pract...more

I thought I had scoped out the genre I seemed to spend the most time in. I thought I had discovered all the authors and all of the styles that can be used to write about the sort of stuff that goes on in this genre.

And then I read my first Marcinko book - Blood Lies. And found a unique author (actually pair of authors - Jim DeFelice is in their too) writing in a unique style. Will definitely add them to my list of well liked authors.

The plot is like many others in this genre, great lead, a cool...more
Maybe a half star less, but...
Very well written, very engaging, great non-stop action, thankfully no sex scenes to distract from the story and great visual transference. Marcinko does a great job of providing escapism with interesting characters, the only flaw, which is substantial, is his incredibly inflated ego. At times it gets in the way of the story as he writes from first person and weaves the reality of his success as a writer into the story. I can appreciate his confidence as a SEAL and...more
This was a great book! Marchinko and DeFelice spin a great story about Marchinko's mission into Mexico to rescue a damsel in distress. Along the way he runs into drug cartels, American settled in Mexico, human smuggling operations, and many more thing. All of this is sprinkled with Marchinoo's humor and political views. Definitely a page turner!

I love Marcinko. His books have some of the best lines, but Rogue Warrior: Blood Lies is something of a mess when it comes to plot. A mission to Mexico to rescue a former SEAL's daughter turns into a girls who doesn't want to be rescued, rescuing the people who helped her, rescuing an agent's parents, fighting drug lords, breaking people out of prison...and more. There's lots of action, but who they are fighting and why quickly becomes obscured. Blood Lies doesn't fight to the top of my Rogue Wa...more

Fast moving? Yes. Hard hitting? Yes. Action packed? Yes. Realistic? Maybe. Believable? Maybe. Worth the read if you are into this genre? Yes.
