I am enjoying Richard Marcinko less as time goes on, just because I think he may be too old to write these roman a clefs. It is getting less possible for me to separate history, historical fiction, axe grinding, wishful thinking, and self-promotion.

There are great points to this book, one that he shares with MLK's praise of greatness. Marcinko is pleased with the computer geek (soon after blown to bits) though they share very little professional overlap. It is the philosophy of doing to an extre
Definitely liked this rogue Warrior novel. His gruff demeanor just makes the book...
I hadn't picked up a Rogue Warrior book in quite a while, and after this one, I probably never will again. Way too testosterone-fueled, with literally pages and pages depicting extremely graphic, bloody torture. I respect Marcinko for what he's done in his career, but his fictional alter ego spends entirely too much time telling us what a BAMF he is. And after the first couple of chapters, I really started to wonder if he was being paid by the number of f-bombs he managed to cram into every sent ...more

The rogue warrior does it again. Predictable story but well told. The interrogation scene in the early stages of the book was very graphic albeit it got the job done. If I don't read something like that again I wouldn't mind
Richard Marcinko is hunting terrorists again and it is going to get bloody. There is a key scene where a female spec ops operative interogates a terrorist with a really nice Emerson knife. Do NOT eat first.
This book was interesting because it took place in Portland, Oregon! (if you like spy books, that is! ;))
Typical grind 'em out Dickie to the rescue...always entertaining...I enjoy the warrior mentality of his books
