Biographical note:

RICHARD MARCINKO is a living, breathing hero--he was honored with the silver star and four bronze stars for valor, along with two Navy Commendation medals. After serving in Vietnam, he started and commanded SEAL Team 6, the Navy’s first Counter-terrorist command, and Red Cell, a high-level anti-terrorist unit whose exploits, fictionalized for security and legal reasons, have formed the basis of his novels.  Besides an active speaking and consulting calendar, Marcinko keeps his hand in the field as the president of a private international security company. He lives in Warrenton, Virginia. 

JIM DeFELICE is the author of many military based thriller novels and is a frequent collaborator with Stephen Coonts, Larry Bond, and Richard Marcinko, among other New York Times bestselling authors. He lives in New York. 

Excerpt from book:

I
 

It’s not hard to get mugged in Juarez, Mexico. Walk down the wrong street, flash some cash, act a little tipsy—before you know it, you’ve got a crowd lining up behind you, fighting over who has dibs.
Getting kidnapped is harder. First of all, it pays to be choosey. You don’t want to be kidnapped by just anyone. Or let me say, you don’t want to be kidnapped by the wrong anyone. The crime has to be seen as a business transaction, not one of passion. Passion will quickly get you killed, not just in Juarez but anywhere.
It also has to be the right kind of business transaction. You don’t want it to be part of a merger and acquisition. The latter is pretty common in Juarez, where drug cartels and their various factions are constantly jostling for position. If your kidnappers grab you as part of a hostile takeover, your chances of emerging with significant limbs intact is small.
You want to be kidnapped by someone who doesn’t see you as competition, who expects a good ransom, and who knows that damaged goods are bad for business. He should be fairly adept at it, too—the last thing you want is a nervous finger on the 1911 Model knockoff when it’s pushed against your ribs. (Most kidnappers in general are male, and this is especially true in Mexico. I’m not sure why they gravitate toward inexpensive versions of the venerable Colt automatic; maybe they get a bulk discount. Or maybe they missed out on our ATF royally fucked-up scam—excuse me, sting operation—“designed” to trace U.S. illegal gun sales throughout the Southwest, Midwest, and dead West. It was your typical cocked-up brain-dead government operation, helped along by some greedy cock breaths on the U.S. side of the border.)
If you want to be grabbed by higher-end thugs, you have to position yourself just right. Attractive and available alone won’t cut it. Your cover story has to fall close to the profile of people they like to snatch. You also have to present yourself as easy, but not such a patsy that lesser villains try to pick you off the street.
Becoming functional bait isn’t just a difficult business, it’s an art form.
*   *   *
My interest in kidnapping was sincere and honorable. I wanted to be grabbed as part of a plan to free a legitimate kidnap victim, the twenty-two-year-old, tactfully blond and delicately curvaceous daughter of a fellow SEAL.
There were ulterior motives as well, the most important of which had to do with Hezbollah1 and a reported terror camp in the border area. But that part of the story is best saved for a moment when things are a little calmer. Because at the moment this book begins, I’m east of Juarez being chased by a pair of pickup trucks filled with gun-toting banditos. My foot is to the floor and the big Cadillac is fishtail
When the daughter of a retired Navy SEAL is kidnapped and held for ransom in Mexico, the Rogue Warrior and his band of Red Cell International warriors head south of the border to rescue her. Along the way, they encounter drug dealers and human traffickers, break into a cartel kingpin’s mansion, and do battle with a hundred of the meanest banditos since Pancho Villa. And for good measure, Marcinko uncovers a secret Hezbollah camp funded by the Iranian government and sheltered by the drug lords. But the founder of SEAL Team 6 finds his toughest opponent may actually be…the woman he’s come to rescue.
 

Rogue Warrior: Blood Lies is another no-holds-barred thrill-ride from Richard Marcinko, the creator of Seal Team Six.
