From the #1 New York Times bestselling author Vince Flynn calls “the real deal,” Richard Marcinko delivers a Rogue Warrior thriller that finds Demo Dick darkening the aisles of St. Peter’s Basilica in Vatican City—tracking a group of terrorists who want to turn the world’s largest Catholic church into the world’s biggest Roman candle.
Nothing and no one is sacred when the Rogue Warrior smokes out a terrorist network with plans to turn the Vatican to ash. In Holy Terror, the former SEAL commander fires his first shots at a NATO conference in Rome, where he caps off his blistering anti-terror speech with a helpful visual aid—eliminating a "waiter" and playing volleyball with a live grenade.
As Demo Dick and his team trail terrorist kingpin Saladin, the manhunt pulls them into tracking stolen nukes in Sicily, facing down a predator in the jungles of Thailand, and flying on a prayer aboard a hijacked jet. Marcinko's mission is one final, explosive showdown with the bad guys—and there will be hell to pay.
Marcinko and DeFelice deliver another high-octane entry in the long-running Rogue Warrior series (Vengeance, etc.), starring a fictional Dick Marcinko, who battles and wisecracks his way through the world's bad guys. At a NATO conference in Vatican City, "Demo Dick," in his role as CEO of the Red Cell International security firm, delivers a get-serious-about-terrorism speech. Distracted by a waiter at the back of the room about to lob a grenade into the assembled dignitaries, Dick interrupts his remarks to nail the guy with a single pistol shot through the forehead. Shortly thereafter, Dick is caught up in a running battle with a dozen submachine gun firing terrorists (minions of the shadowy Arab warrior known as Saladin) who are trying to seize St. Paul's Cathedral. The action also featuring female Delta Force fighter Trace Dahlgren catapults to Sicily, Cairo, Shanghai and the Thailand jungle, continuing almost nonstop to the final climax back in Rome. Once again, Marcinko and DeFelice's iconoclastic hero takes no prisoners while kicking terrorist butt in this breezy techno-thriller.
