I sometimes read a Rogue Warrior novel as action book junk food. Reading about pre-9/11 security standards is interesting, and I'm surprised Marcinko's use of a nerve agent to dispatch the villain hasn't been stolen by a Hollywood movie. I find the earlier John Weisman books to be a bit more believable than the recent DeFelice volumes(which are fun in their own crazy way).
In the same vein as his previous books, Although it's interesting reading this since it was written pre 9/11. I think some of the things he talks about have changed and it's almost hard to remember that time when security was more lax than it is now for gatherings and plane trips. Good action and it reads like he's talking to you. His language is just that of an old shooter and SEAL pretty rough most of the time. Maybe he does talk like this all the time but it gets a little unnecessary and detr ...more

Well written, page turning action. Expect foul language and brutality.

Read by the author and very enjoyable.

When the Rogue Warrior and his elite SEAL team, Task Force Blue, storm a hijacked 727 in Key West, a hostage is killed -- and Marcinko must pay. Facing court-martial and removal from the Navy, his is recuited by the Defense Intelligence Agency to erradicate a secret right-wing terrorist infrastructure. Combating a brutal enemy force, and pursued by the FBI, Marcinko maneuvers through a political, military, and bureaucratic minefield, adhering to the ultimat

Recommends it for: those who like violence and profanity
A stirring tale of counterterrorism, wherein the author is also the main character. Rather improbable overall and more F words per page than in any book I have previously encountered. A sequel to a New York Times #1 bestseller, but that perhaps reveals more about the NYT rankings than about the quality of the writing. This book would likely appeal to the TV show "24" audience given its rightward political slant, promotion of torture and gratuitous violence.
I love Marcinko's style! These are fun reads, page turners that you can put down and pick up later with no problems.
Interesting, entertaining, different. A mix of truth & fiction.
