Bogus. This guy may have been a great SEAL, but writing is not his strong suit. I suppose that is why the second author, John Weisman, is involved, but his effort is a FAIL. The plot is ridiculous. The pacing is terribly uneven. The characters are cartoonish. Marcinko paints himself as a foul-mouthed, bada$$, which he may very well be, but run-on cursing is a weak plot device.

Maybe the Navy screwed him over in real life. I don't know. But the novel is a clearly a vendatta against the service and the whole government, intended to make the U.S. look not like a superpower, but like a superclown, and the Navy, in particular, as being thoroughly corrupt, inept, untrustworthy and cowardly from the lowest able seaman to the very top echelon. Marcinko has a very big ax to grind.

His first book was apparently non-fiction and a best seller. Good for him. But this follow-up novel is just trash. Read something decent, instead.
