Overview

The Rogue Warrior has come to Moscow to investigate the assassination of Paul Mahon, U.S. Defense attaché in Russia. Marcinko knows who killed him -- Andrei Yudin, a godfather in the Russian Mafia -- and he wants to know why. Instead, he finds a cabal of corrupt, mob-linked russian politicians. The revelation gets him yanked back to Washington, where orders come down to disband his elite team of SEALs.

But even as the Pentagon's chain of command becomes a noose around his neck, Marcinko begins to cut and slash his way to the truth behind Mahon's death. More about survival than revenge, his mission soon leads him to a black-market network peddling terrorism in Paris, sinister trading in the Middle East, and a devil of a deal that puts American's safety up for sale....

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
In his distinctively terse, staccato voice, Marcinko reads his latest mission of doom (e.g., Rogue Warrior II: Red Cell, Audio Reviews, LJ 4/15/94) involving the Rogue Warrior's travels to Moscow to find, and kill, those who murdered a good friend (who was also the U.S. defense attach) and his family. Of course, there is more than meets the eye. While tracking the killer, the Rogue Warrior gets entangled in an international plutonium smuggling ring that involves several governments. The action is nonstop and filled with nice tidbits about weapons, etc. While this is neither great literature nor politically correct, folks who enjoy an adventure will want to hear this.
