Synopses & Reviews
When the Rogue Warrior travels to India to help supervise security arrangements for the upcoming Commonwealth Games, he and his team find themselves up to their skivvies in terrorists of all types--Pakistanis. But its not just the Games that are being targeted for disruption--Demo Dick and his young bucks uncover a plot to steal all seventy nuclear warheads the Indians have amassed for war against the Pakistanis.
Rogue Warrior must overcome various obstacles to prevent disaster: a high-tech remote controlled attack helicopter that makes the Apache look like a childs toy, an ominous chemical factory about to go boom, and tea and crumpets with the Queen.
We're just kidding about the Queen.
Marcinko and DeFelice sprinkle the action with trademark Rogue Warrior humor and non-PC asides in the latest installment of the best-selling series. As usual, the plot mixes fact with fiction, and incorporates some of the original SEAL Team 6 skippers recent experiences in India.
"The wisecracks, gun battles, and explosions are pretty much nonstop in this fine Rogue Warrior installment, just as in previous entries in this long-running thriller series featuring Marcinko's fictional alter ego (Seize the Day, etc.). The Indian government has hired Red Cell International, Marcinko's security company, to provide security for the 2010 Commonwealth Games. Demolition Dick and his team have organized a secret Indian special forces unit known as Special Squadron Zero. Their first mission, an attack on the terrorist cell India for Islam, is a success. Then comes a stream of failures that dogs the group, indicating a tough, tenacious, and resourceful enemy and quite probably a traitor in their midst. Marcinko provides all the usual ingredients for a Rogue Warrior operation: seasoned fighters, cool, high-tech weapons, a cruel foe, beautiful sexy women, furious fire fights, hard drinking, and plenty of smart-ass commentary. Who could ask for more? That Marcinko, a former Navy SEAL, has received a lot of media attention in the wake of the operation that killed Osama bin Laden may boost sales.
