When Richard Marcinko wrote his bestselling autobiography, Rogue Warrior, he and co-writer John Weisman were bound by government restrictions and could only tell a fraction of his incredible story. Now the tales he could not tell, the secrets he could not reveal explode in ROGUE WARRIOR II: RED CELL -- a riveting ne novel with Marcinko himself as the hero.

He is the enemy's worst nightmare and lives by only one rule. . . win, by any means.

Freelance security consultant Dick Marcinko is playing terrorist at Tokyo's Narita Airport. Easily penetrating the facility's defenses, he engages in a deadly firefight with North Korean operatives -- and discovers that a group of traitorous Americans are smuggling nuclear materials to North Korea and Japan. With no where else to turn, the former Secretary of Defense recalls Marcinko to the Navy against his will to command Red Cell, a dirty-dozen Seal team Marcinko created. From infiltrating Washington's Navy Yard offices and secret nuclear weapons depot in California, to raiding a North Korean Navy base and a target far out in the Pacific, the Rogue Warrior and his marauding SEALs fight incredible odds and increasingly dangerous enemies. A relentlessly paced audio program that hurtles to its electifying climax, ROGUE WARRIOR II: RED CELL is as good as a thriller gets. Download and start listening now!

Quotes & Awards

  • Rogue Warrior: 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.” 

    Clive Cussler, New York Times bestselling author

  • “Marcinko and Weisman achieve a gripping blend of action and suspense.” 

    W.E.B. Griffin, New York Times Bestselling author

  • According to Marcinko, following the publication of his bestselling autobiography Rogue Warrior , he was forbidden to reveal any more secrets about SEAL or other defense activities; so he has taken to fiction to continue his story…A surefire bet for wannabe soldiers of fortune, this is also a frighteningly plausible scenario of political and military power gone astray.”

    Publishers Weekly (starred review)

  • “Fast action and advanced weaponry at every turn; in-your-face commentary on the powers that be; a steady stream of imaginatively salty language: What more could any red-blooded, two-fisted, he-man fantasist want?” 

    Kirkus Reviews

  • A New York Times Bestseller

    " Interesting book. Author is very self centered and comes off as a braggard who was framed by the navy. Still enjoyed some of his yarns. Good vacation book "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ben | 1/26/2011

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Don | 6/25/2010

    " This book is just big fun for readers of the dark arts of today's nasty world. Richard epitomizes the "Point of the Spear." Muscular, masculine, irreverently military, and macho at its core, maximum kill them first; ask questions later – in overdrive.
    Read it, you'll love it. "

    " Forgot about this one but was reminded by a YA novel I just read an advance of called StarCrossed. Dickie Marcinko is just what every action hero/spy wishes he was, and this guy is the real thing. Mature and not for the feint-hearted. "
