Overview

When Richard Marcinko wrote his bestselling autobiography, Rogue Warrior, he and co-writer John Weisman were bound by government restrictions and could only tell a fraction of his incredible story. Now the tales he could not tell, the secrets he could not reveal explode in ROGUE WARRIOR II: RED CELL -- a riveting ne novel with Marcinko himself as the hero.

He is the enemy's worst nightmare and lives by only one rule. . . win, by any means.

Freelance security consultant Dick Marcinko is playing terrorist at Tokyo's Narita Airport. Easily penetrating the facility's defenses, he engages in a deadly firefight with North Korean operatives -- and discovers that a group of traitorous Americans are smuggling nuclear materials to North Korea and Japan. With no where else to turn, the former Secretary of Defense recalls Marcinko to the Navy against his will to command Red Cell, a dirty-dozen Seal team Marcinko created. From infiltrating Washington's Navy Yard offices and secret nuclear weapons depot in California, to raiding a North Korean Navy base and a target far out in the Pacific, the Rogue Warrior and his marauding SEALs fight incredible odds and increasingly dangerous enemies. A relentlessly paced audio program that hurtles to its electifying climax, ROGUE WARRIOR II: RED CELL is as good as a thriller gets.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Counterterrorist expert Marcinko's (Rogue Warrior) novel concerning a smuggling operation based in Japan was a six-week PW bestseller. (Dec.)
Roland Green
How much of this sequel to the legendary and unorthodox SEALs leader's memoirs, "Rogue Warrior" (1992), is fiction and how much novelized actual fact is likely to remain forever in dispute, at least partly for security reasons. Marketed as a novel, this story of how Marcinko and a handful of picked SEALs defeated a high-level plot to smuggle nuclear weapons into the hands of Japanese rightists does, however, read just like an excellent thriller of the hard-boiled, action-loaded variety. Also remember that Marcinko, in spite of his maverick history and salty vocabulary, is an exceptionally proficient special warfare leader. Fans of the first "Rogue Warrior" will lap this one up, and general thriller aficionados may have fun with it, too.

What People are saying about this

Stephen Coonts
Marcinko is the real McCoy, a warrior who has lived it. Read this novel -- it's a real-world education in one volume.
Clive Cussler
Rogue Warrior II: Red Cell is a chilling, blood-and-guts, no-nonsense look into clandestine military operations told like it should be told. It doesn't come more powerful than this.
