The Rogue Warrior is back with a vengeance in this third adventure starring and narrated by foul-mouthed, fast-talking ex-SEAL Richard Marcinko, subject of the autobiographical Rogue Warrior and hero of the novel Rogue Warrior II: Red Cell. Marcinko's latest escapade opens with his new Green Team on a secret assignment from the Chief of Naval Operations to snatch a terrorist away from his Cairo hideaway. When a terrorist bomb kills Marcinko's mentor and friend, CNO Arleigh Secrest, Marcinko and team vow revenge. Their battle against traitors and terrorists is waged with high-energy heroics from Nice to Karachi, with enough testosterone to float a battleship. Marcinko gives new definition to the word tough; the character that he and coauthor Weisman have created to tell the story is loud, self-assured, self-aware and unabashedly chauvinistic-- the embodiment of an American myth: the outlaw who gets the job done with an end-justifies-the-means morality. The highly energetic storytelling includes numerous informational, historical and anecdotal asides, none of which is dull. A novel for those who like in-your-face four-letter action. Author tour; Simon & Schuster Audio. (Mar.)
