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.)
Library Journal
Marcinko promised to be back after recounting his adventures in the original Rogue Warrior (Audio Reviews, LJ 4/1/ 93). He adamantly claims that this sequel is fiction, going so far as to have a disclaimer at the beginning of the tape. Is this ``plausible denial,'' or what? Anyway, the author spins a good tale about nuclear-tipped Tomahawk cruise missles being stolen for a group of Japanese ultranationalists. Marcinko (who casts himself as the lead character), just out of the pen, is called out of the civilian work force by the Navy and put back in charge of his old SEAL Red Cell team. His mission: track down the missiles. The action is continuous, and Marcinko and his team zigzag all over the United States and across the Pacific. Marcinko's reading is excellent and is filled with details (and adjectives) from his 30 years of service. The only drawback is that the action in this abridgment is somewhat jumpy. Recommended for action/military collections.-Michael T. Fein, Catawba Valley Community Coll., Hickory, N.C.

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.

This is the best military fiction book ive ever read. Marckinco is a nut job and i love it. I think the term FUBAR needs to be SNFUBAR after this book
Guest More than 1 year ago
Read this book and you will see covert US military operations through the eyes of a man who was in the middle of it all. You may even begin to wonder if the US government is FUBAR
