The first installment in the thrilling series by Navy SEAL Team Six commando Don Mann, infused with the real-life details only a true insider can reveal.
In the midst of a grueling training exercise, Thomas Crocker, USN, unearths a pocket of terrorism that leads straight from the slopes of K2 to the cities of Europe and the Middle East. Crocker and his team, who are trained for the most intense kinds of combat in the most extreme environments, must blaze through a perilous web of terrorist cells to track down a ruthless sheikh who is running an international kidnapping ring before his captives pay the ultimate price.
HUNT THE WOLF is an adrenaline-packed novel sure to appeal to fans of Vince Flynn and Brad Thor, featuring the world's most elite soldiers and based on the experiences of renowned SEAL Team 6 commando Don Mann.
SEAL veteran Mann and bestseller Pezzullo (Inside SEAL Team Six) make their fiction debut with this solid military adventure thriller. U.S. Navy Chief Warrant Officer Tom Crocker leads the members of SEAL Team Six in the hunt for terrorist Abu Rasul Zaman (aka AZ), al-Qaeda's number three man, who manages to slip through the team's attack on a warehouse hideout in Karachi. Evidence seized during the raid points to a sex kidnapping scheme in France and to a mystery ship, the Syrena. Crocker and his men have to deal with the usual Washington weenies and a troublesome CIA contact in Pakistan, Lou Donaldson, among other minor impediments. The characters spend a little too much time reminiscing about their home lives and bemoaning the state of the world, but a steady stream of action makes this a worthy entry into the burgeoning SEAL thriller genre.

Although full of details that leant it some realism, the plot was too ragged, and the SEAL Team leader too rebellious to be believed. The repeated "seat of the pants" movements don't seem to be as disciplined and coordinated as I would expect from special operators. The freelancing, while flashy and heroic, detracted from the authenticity of the book. I'll try one more in the series, and if it's the same, I'll stick to Thor, et al.
