"A true juggernaut of a thriller, pure adrenaline in print. With the creation of Robin Monarch, Sullivan has crafted a Jason Bourne for the new millennium." âe"James Rollins


Mark Sullivan has created a propulsive, compelling new thriller. Rogue, is one part Bourne Identity and one part Mission: Impossible, but readers will also love the nod to Hitchcock's It Takes a Thief .

Two years ago, Robin Monarch was a top level CIA operativeâe"perhaps the best they had when it came to black bag operations. Then one day, in the middle of an operation, with his team around him in the field, Monarch walked away, leaving his old life and friends behind without a word of explanation.

Now this ex-soldier, ex-operative, and orphan with a murky past is a thief, stealing from the super-rich and has surfaced in St. Tropez. But when a complicated, high profile jewel heist goes wrong, Monarch is led into a carefully woven trap designed to force him to complete the very same mission he walked away from years ago.

It will take all of his skills (as well as those of the team he burned) and all of his cunning, if Monarch is to thwart the violent and deadly goals of the very powerful cabal who will do whatever it takes to bring the very dangerous "Green Fields" technology under their control.

Pretty formulaic ... enough so that I put it down halfway through. There's a limit to the number of larger-than-life characters you can stuff into one action novel.

First in a series. No more for me. Lots of excitement, but it's all contrived. Wooen hero isn't a real person and most definitely not a "Jason Bourne for the new millennium" as the book's blurb gushes.

I usually love this kind of book and subject but I just couldn't get into this and found it quite unbeleivable. Had to let it go after the first chapter .

Good story that is well written

One of the worst thrillers I've ever read. Through half the book it was great, then the "defies-all-reality" events start to pile on. Barely managed to get through the rest of it, as even more preposterous scenarios ensue.
The blurbs on the back cover were by authors I enjoy (except James Patterson, whose disposable fiction has become too formulaic), so was disappointed how the plot developed.
