The Rogue Warrior is in Moscow with murder and mayhem on his mind. The reason: his old friend, Paul Mahon, Washington's defense attache in Russia, has been assassinated. Marcinko knows who killed him-- Andrei Yudin, a godfather in the Russian mafia-- and he just wants to know why. But Yudin's not talking. In fact, he's been silenced forever. The Rogue Warrior can't raise the dead, but he can uncover a cabal of Russian politicians in bed with the mob. The revelation buys him a one-way ticket to Washington, courtesy of the Russian Ministry of the Interior... and his own State Department. Back in the Pentagon, Marcinko finds that the chain of command has turned into a noose around his neck. He's asking questions some powerful people don't want answered, and he's drawing heavy fire. Orders come down from the top to disband his elite group of Navy SEALs-- and to put the Rogue Warrior out to pasture. But this is one stud who's not ready to go down to the farm. He is ready, however, to prowl and growl, to cut and slash his way to the real story behind Mahon's death-- a search that takes him to Paris and into the heart of a black-market network peddling terrorism and mass murder. Marcinko connects Paul's murder to break-ins at the dozen NATO installations throughout Europe, to the infiltration of the American Embassy in Paris, and to a series of sinister and mysterious shipments to the Middle East. Masterminded by an international financier in the employ of the CIA, a devil of a deal is in the works, and it's America's safety that's for sale. It's time to play truth or consequences. The Rogue Warrior will uncover the truth-- and his enemies will have hell to pay.
