Overview

In the New York Times bestselling autobiography Rogue Warrior, Richard Marcinko chronicled his controversial career in the U.S. Navy's elite maritime commandos, the SEAL teams.

After his success as creator and commander of the counterterrorist SEAL TEAM SIX, he was ordered to create Red Cell -- a dirty-dozen team of SEALs whose mission was to infiltrate the Navy's most secure installations. Marcinko did his job too well. His reward was a year in a federal penitentiary.

During that year, Marcinko and John Weisman wrote Rogue Warrior...but government restrictions meant Marcinko could only tell a fraction of his incredible story. Now the secrets he could not reveal explode on the page as the Rogue Warrior returns in the blockbuster suspense novel of the year -- a novel with him as the hero!

As ROGUE WARRIOR II: RED CELL begins, Marcinko, now a freelance security expert, makes a shocking discovery: smugglers are transferring nuclear materials to North Korea through Japan -- with backing from traitorous Americans. Recalled involuntarily to command RED CELL and stop the operation, the Rogue Warrior, with his loyal SEALs, will do anything to crush those who would betray America for a price. Based on current SEAL tactics, ROGUE WARRIOR II: RED CELL is an electrifying, sure-fire hit.

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.

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
