(Part of Rogue Warrior)
In seven smash Rogue Warrior bestsellers, Richard Marcinko and John Weisman have delivered nonstop action and explosive thrills. Now the Rogue Warrior writes a new set of rules for the shadowy world of Black Ops....
Dangerous times require dangerous men. And there isn't a man alive more deadly than the Rogue Warrior. Captain Richard "NMN" Marcinko must uncover the truth behind recent attempts to destabilize Azerbaijan, the tiny former Soviet republic that holds the key to the oil-rich Caspian Sea. A pipeline to the West is planned, and both Russia and Iran want control. But there are hidden players, including billionaire Steve Sarkesian; just how he ties in with the Russkies and Arabs is unclear, but treachery is afoot to choke off America's black gold.
Enlisting his elite SEALs, Marcinko races to the heart of the Middle East, doing what he does best -- breaking rules and cracking heads until the only thing left standing is justice.

John Weisman

John Weisman is one of the select company of authors to have written both fiction and non-fiction New York Times best-sellers. In 1992 he wrote Rogue Warrior with Richard Marcinko. That book, Marcinko's autobiography and the story of the U.S. Navy's elite counterterrorism unit, SEAL Team Six, spent eight months on the Times best-seller list, including four weeks at number one. The sequels, Rogue Warrior: Red Cell, Rogue Warrior: Green Team, Rogue Warrior: Task Force Blue, Rogue Warrior: Designation Gold, and Rogue Warrior: Seal Force Alpha were all New York Times fiction-list best-sellers.
Weisman was appointed a Senior Fellow at the Annenberg Washington Program for Communications Policy Studies of Northwestern University in 1989. Prior to that, he wrote hundreds of articles for publications that run the gamut from the Columbia Journalism Review to Soldier of Fortune. He has lectured on media and writing at the National War College at Fort Leslie J. McNair, the American University, Cornell University, and Longwood College.
His books include the nonfiction best-seller Shadow Warrior, the life story of Felix Rodriguez, the CIA agent who captured Che Guevara, which was published by Simon and Schuster and was the subject of a 60 Minutes segment. His previous novels include Evidence, Watchdogs, and Blood Cries. His acclaimed CIA short story "There Are Monsterim" can be found in the current anthology Unusual Suspects.
Weisman was born in New York City in 1942. He attended the Birch Wathen School and Bard College. He divides his time between homes in the Washington, DC area and the Blue Ridge mountains of Virginia.
