From top-secret diplomatic tunnels beneath London to the high seas off the Azores, the New York Times bestselling SEAL commando of eight explosive thrillers takes on a lethal group of Irish Republican Army terrorists in ROGUE WARRIOR DETACHMENT BRAVO The Rogue Warrior is back in a fast-paced, furious, in-your-face adventure! This time he's on the hunt for a high-tech army that smashed the Good Friday Peace Accord and killed a half dozen American and British CEOs. Launched by two self-financed, new-generation terrorists, this murderous wing of the IRA has an even bigger assault planned -- one that promises to stun the world. Now, along with a special ops team made up of Brits, SEALS, spies, and NSA operatives, Marcinko is determined to stop them, but there are a few unknowns: they don't know the target, they don't know the date, and they don't know where the terror is going down.
When Kim Jong II invites the Rogue Warrior to visit North Korea, Dick Marcinko politely declines, wary of what could be in store for him inside the "Hermit Kingdom." But the CI has other ideas and soon Marcinko is enjoying the comforts of the Supreme Leader's palace--where four nuclear warheads may be hidden. Hot on the radioactive trail in a special op, Marcinko has to stay one step ahead of Kim Jong II--and the Russian mobsters he meets on the way.
In seven smash Rogue Warrior bestsellers, Richard Marcinko and John Weisman have delivered nonstop action and explosive thrills. Now the Rogue Warrior writes a new set of rules for the shadowy world of Black Ops.... Dangerous times require dangerous men. And there isn't a man alive more deadly than the Rogue Warrior. Captain Richard "NMN" Marcinko must uncover the truth behind recent attempts to destabilize Azerbaijan, the tiny former Soviet republic that holds the key to the oil-rich Caspian Sea. A pipeline to the West is planned, and both Russia and Iran want control. But there are hidden players, including billionaire Steve Sarkesian; just how he ties in with the Russkies and Arabs is unclear, but treachery is afoot to choke off America's black gold. Enlisting his elite SEALs, Marcinko races to the heart of the Middle East, doing what he does best -- breaking rules and cracking heads until the only thing left standing is justice.
Richard Marcinko's revelations in his explosive #1 bestselling autobiography, Rogue Warrior, reverberated through the highest levels of the U.S. government. But, bound by government restrictions, he was forbidden to tell the whole story. The answer was fiction. First came Rogue Warrior: Red Cell, the take-no-prisoners bestseller with Marcinko as hero. Now the Rogue Warrior's back and he's hotter than ever, in a knockout novel of courage and nonstop action. In Portsmouth, England, an aircraft carrier has been sabotaged, killing the American Chief of Naval Operations, one of the few friends the Rogue Warrior had left in the Navy. Marcinko discovers a holy war is brewing -- a violent religious movement, encircling the globe and zeroing in on the West. Defeating that menace will be the supreme test of Marcinko's GREEN TEAM, a top-secret unit operating outside the U.S. military's chain of command. But in Washington, the political wolves select Dick Marcinko as their sacrificial lamb. For the Rogue Warrior it's time to declare a holy war of his own. The enemy may have the ultimate weapon, but GREEN TEAM has Marcinko's Tenth Commandment of SpecWar: There Are No Rules -- Thou Shalt Win at All Cost!
No one has ever accused Richard Marcinko -- aka Rogue Warrior® -- of being an altar boy, but in the latest installment of his bestselling series, Demo Dick finds himself darkening the aisles of St. Peter's Basilica in Vatican City, tracking a group of terrorists who want to turn the world's largest Catholic church into the world's biggest Roman candle. A trip to Italy for Dick Marcinko turns into more than pasta and gondola rides. Nothing and no one is sacred as Marcinko sprays irreverent asides, targeting everything from antiterror wannabes to the nuns who taught him in parochial school. Called "the real deal" by Vince Flynn, the bestselling author of Memorial Day, Marcinko entertains, informs, and even finds time to genuflect in his new book. Visiting a NATO conference in Rome, Demo Dick blisters bureaucratic ears with a speech about Europe's vulnerabilities and the need to get serious about terrorism. He caps off his talk with an impromptu demonstration of the threat, unmasking a plot to kill the conferees seconds before it begins -- and just in time to play volleyball with a live hand grenade. The action ratchets up from there as the former SEAL commander is shanghaied to Sicily to help investigate the attempted theft of nukes from a U.S. base. Is the Mafia involved? Or is this the work of Saladin, a shadowy extremist trying to step into bin Laden's shoes? A high body count lends credence to both theories, but before Demo Dick can untangle the plot, his firm is hired to track down "shrinkage" in a courier operation in Asia. Since said shrinkage involves data and currency worth hundreds of millions of dollars, Demo Dick anticipates a Rogue-sized finder's fee. But he soon discovers the job is a trap. Lured to a cave filled with outrageously hungry tigers in the Thailand jungle, Demo Dick sucks cat breath before being saved by the beautiful if prickly Trace Dahlgren and veteran Rogue sideman Al "Doc" Tremblay. Marcinko has only escaped the frying pan for the fire; he rides a hijacked jet back to Italy, where Saladin plans to wrap up the plot's loose ends in a bonfire at the center of the Eternal City. In Holy Terror, Marcinko mixes his trademark wit and wisdom with nonstop action in a romp across Europe and Asia.
In six spectacular New York Times bestsellers, covert combat master Richard Marcinko has blown the lid off the classified world of SpecWar ops. Now, the commando's credo "kill-or-be-killed" is pushed to the brink in a shattering new conflict.... The Rogue Warrior is invading Germany with a blitzkrieg of bravado. His secret assignment: recover a pair of U.S. ADM's -- Atomic Demolition Munitions -- lost in the Rhine Valley. Yet, what begins as a simple SEAL mission explodes in his face when terrorists visit the cache site. With military tensions igniting all over the world, America's diplomatic priorities are everywhere but eastern Europe -- and the Rogue Warrior must take matters into his own hands. But not even Marcinko is aware that a cabal of ultranational extremists -- led by Lothar Beck, a billionaire defense contractor -- is ready to use Germany's stockpiled cold War nuclear weapons to carve out Europe's first superpower, a true Fourth Reich. Fortunately Marcinko has some firepower of his own, and the manpower to deliver it with maximum prejudice and extreme efficiency. He and his elite SEALs will have to wade through tango cells of skinheads, neo-Nazis, Russian mobsters, and Middle Eastern terrorists before they get the scent of the real powerbrokers. But once they do, it's time to go hunting -- with no bag limit.
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 counter-terrorist 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.
A brilliant virtuoso of violence, Richard Marcinko rose through Navy ranks to create and command one of this country's most elite and classified counterterrorist units, SEAL TEAM SIX. Now this thirty-year veteran recounts the secret missions and Special Warfare madness of his worldwide military career -- and the riveting truth about the top-secret Navy SEALs. Marcinko was almost inhumanly tough, and proved it on hair-raising missions across Vietnam and a war-torn world: blowing up supply junks, charging through minefields, jumping at 19,000 feet with a chute that wouldn't open, fighting hand-to-hand in a hellhole jungle. For the Pentagon, he organized the Navy's first counterterrorist unit: the legendary SEAL TEAM SIX, which went on classified missions from Central America to the Middle East, the North Sea, Africa and beyond. Then Marcinko was tapped to create Red Cell, a dirty-dozen team of the military's most accomplished and decorated counterterrorists. Their unbelievable job was to test the defenses of the Navy's most secure facilities and installations. The result was predictable: all hell broke loose. Here is the hero who saw beyond the blood to ultimate justice -- and the decorated warrior who became such a maverick that the Navy brass wanted his head on a pole, and for a time, got it. Richard Marcinko -- ROGUE WARRIOR.

They need Marcinko and his elite SEAL contingent, Task Force Blue.

Accused of murder and pursued by the FBI, operating underground to maneuver through a political, military, and bureaucratic minefield, the Rogue Warrior is right where he wants to be. And, faithful to his ultimate Commandment of SpecWar, there are no rules - Marcinko will win at all costs. "--BOOK JACKET. Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
