Review of “Rogue commander”


Book Reviews – “Rogue Commander” eBook was published in 2017 and was written by Leo J. Maloney ( Mr. Maloney has published seven novels. This is the sixth novel in his “Dan Morgan” series.

I received an ARC of this novel through in return for a fair and honest review. I categorize this novel as ‘R’ because it contains scenes of Violence. The story is set in the contemporary US. The primary character is CIA veteran Dan Morgan. The action in the story takes place in both the US and China.

General James Collins has been accused of helping to steal a group of Tomahawk missiles. He reaches out to long time friend Morgan to ask him to help clear his name. Morgan goes against orders and pursues leads to exonerate Collins on his own. The trail leads Morgan to many dangerous situations and evidence of North Korean involvement.

Meanwhile Morgan’s team mates, including his daughter, are trying to find Morgan and bring him in for questioning. Pursuit of a wanted arms dealer leads them to a connection with North Korea as well.

Morgan fights to find out the truth behind the Tomahawk missile theft. His team and daughter chase down dangerous paths to find the arms dealer. They both soon find that their investigations are connected and that they are investigating a plot that could ignite World War III.

I enjoyed the 7.5 hours I spent with this 254 page thriller. Some of the plot seemed a little over the top, but on the whole I enjoyed it. I think perhaps the character of Morgan was a little too independent for a mature special operations group. The cover art is OK, though something more related to the plot would have been better. I give this novel a 4 out of 5.
