Overview

Rogue Avenger is the sequel to Rogue Trident, a Military Writers Society of America award winner. After hijacking a Trident Missile submarine in Rogue Trident, international arms dealer Pierre Renard and ex-naval officer Jake Slate team up for nobler purposes in Rogue Avenger. Pressured by a blockaded Taiwan, Renard agrees to lead a new Pakistani-built Agosta submarine against Chinese Kilo class boats. Refusing to join him, Slate hides in France where he is falling in love with undercover CIA seductress Olivia McDonald. As McDonald uses Slate to infiltrate Renard’s network and learn of the Agosta’s anti-Sino mission, she also discovers that a trusted CIA leader has betrayed her. She questions her loyalties. Meanwhile, a Pakistani submarine has gone rogue with genocidal intent, and the Pakistani Chief of Staff commissions Renard and his Agosta to hunt the renegade boat. A Virginia class submarine plays a vital protective role, but only the improbable alliance of Renard, Slate, and McDonald can protect hundreds of thousands of lives.

In Rogue Trident, author John R. Hindinger introduced us to Jake Slate, a renegade US Navy submariner who stole a nuclear missile submarine. Now, years later, Jake and international arms dealer Pierre Renard are back, acting as mercenaries for the Taiwanese against the dreaded Chinese Kilo class subs. And before long, they are dragged into hunting a rogue Pakistani submarine whose capain is bent on the nuclear destruction of both US and international assets. Hindinger uses his submarine experience to paint a believable backdrop for a unique storyline with well-developed characters and well-paced action. The author strikes the unique balance between too little technical detail and too much, giving just enough to solidly ground the story and make it enjoyable for both techno-thriller types and those who enjoy general military fiction. Hindinger further demonstrates his writing skills with the introduction of a believable and relevant love interest for Slate. Often only a detriment to military fiction and techno-thrillers, the female character of Olivia McDonald is instead a key player in the story, and the subplot between her and Jake is neither forced nor superfluous. Easy to read, easy to understand, and easy to enjoy 'even if you didn't read his first book', Rogue Avenger is definitely worth picking up and definitely hard to put down.
