Seal Team Six: Hunt the Jackal by Don Mann is a fast paced, exciting read that takes fans of the series, and new ones, on a wild adventure of military ops that most of us will only ever read about.
“Real-life SEAL Don Mann brings all of his insight and experience to the next installment of the SEAL Team Six series.
When a senator’s wife and teenage daughter are kidnapped, Thomas Crocker and SEAL Team Six are sent to Mexico’s lawless countryside, where federal agents protect instead of hunting down violent narcotics kingpins. The two women have been kidnapped by the Jackal, a drug lord drunk on power and influence. He also happens to be a self-styled modern Che Guevara, who has undergone plastic surgery to disguise his looks and justifies his brutal methods and Machiavellian drug empire with the politics of social revolution. The Jackal is as ruthless as he is colorful, and he must be stopped.
Crocker and the SEALs have only a matter of hours to track down and rescue the two innocent civilians held at the mercy of this madman. With dirty cops, dangerous cartels, lavish tropical estates, double-crosses and plenty of bullets, Hunt the Jackal places the team in perilous new territory and demonstrates how elite warriors can adapt to and fight in any situation.
With insight into sensitive intelligence so top-secret it can only be hinted at in fiction, Mann and Pezzullo’s extensive knowledge has for several books offered a look behind the curtain at the life-or-death, black-ops missions executed by only a handful of the bravest soldiers. Now, with Hunt the Jackal, the authors focus their lens even closer to home upon the dangers that lurk just across the U.S. border in a pulse-pounding thriller that ups the ante even as it sheds light on the real-life heroes and villains of the fight against narco-terrorism.” – Seal Team Six: Hunt the Jackal
Seal Team Six: Hunt the Jackal is a well written and captivating story. This is the type of book series that truly puts the reader at the heart of the characters, and makes them feel thankful that while their job is highly interesting, it is one we only want to read about, and not take part in. It is also the type that makes us thankful that there are people out there, such as the author, who put their life in danger to protect us and our country.
If you really want to see what the elite warriors that protect and serve our country do, this is a great book to read. I’m not going to ruin the plotline and give away details like that. The characters and plotline are genuine and will engage you to want to continue reading, and likely grab the other books in the series, too. I highly recommend it.
