AS A U.S. NAVY SEAL, RICHARD MARCINKO KNEW NO LIMITS -- AS THE ROGUE WARRIOR, HE OBEYS NO RULES
Through seven blockbuster New York Times bestsellers in the Rogue Warrior series, Richard Marcinko and John Weisman have given their readers untold thrills -- and their villains no mercy. Now the Rogue Warrior writes a whole new set of rules for the shadowy world of Black Ops as he embarks on his most explosive adventure yet -- a volatile tale of double-dealing and international intrigue that blows the lid off today's geopolitical scene.
ROUGE WARRIORŪ: ECHO PLATOON
Dangerous times require dangerous men. And there isn't a man alive more deadly than the Rogue Warrior. Called once more to his country's service, Captain Richard "NMN" Marcinko must undertake a critical mission: uncover the hidden motives and players behind the recent attempts at the destabilization of Azerbaijan, the tiny former Soviet republic that holds the key to the oil-rich Caspian Sea.
An overland pipeline to the West has been planned, and both Russia and Iran want to control the flow. But others have their own interests in the region, including bilious billionaire Steve Sarkesian, one of the world's richest and most influential men. The Rogue knows the man is involved, but just how he ties in with the Russkies and Arabs isn't clear. And just who else stands to benefit from toppling the Azerbaijani government?
The answer is out there somewhere, and Marcinko is going to find it. Pulling together a platoon of his best SEALs, the Rogue Warrior races to the heart of the Middle East, revealing festering layers of treachery and greed that threaten to choke off the black gold that is America's lifeblood. Confronted by well-trained terrorists and false-faced bureaucrats, the Rogue does what he does best -- breaking rules and cracking heads -- until the only thing left standing is justice.
