Synopsis

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.
