Navy Chief Warrant Officer Tom Crocker and his SEAL Team
Six are called into action again to take over a pirated
cargo ship transporting sensitive nuclear material in the
straights of Indonesia. As ST-6 arrives on the scene,
containers are being off-loaded onto a boat. Crocker
follows the boat as his men battle the pirates and take
over the ship. Crocker manages to salvage the containers,
but one of the men on the boat escapes. He is Colonel
Farhed Alizadeh, known as Colonel D, a leader in the
Iranian Revolutionary Corp. What is Iran up to?
This leads ST-6 to Libya to check out locations where
Gadhafi may have been putting together a nuclear weapon.
Bit-by-bit, the team finds interesting parts of what could
be an attempt to create Weapons of Mass Destruction.
Crocker stumbles upon a deal being made for uranium. Can he
and SEAL Team Six stop the transport of it out of the
country? As all of this is transpiring, Crocker's wife
Holly is captured and taken hostage in northern Africa. A
demand is made to the Libyan government for her exchange.
Can they find Holly before she's executed?
Scorpion is the code name for the WMD program that Gadhafi
had been trying to implement in Libya before his demise.
HUNT THE SCORPION is a hair-raising, life-threatening
adventure through this desert country to find these weapon
parts and stop the Iranian government from taking control
of them. There's biological and chemical warfare with lots
of technical jargon that only military enthusiasts might
fully comprehend. Don Mann, a former Navy SEAL
himself, does an excellent job of incorporating and
explaining SEAL training and the theory behind it. The plot
is full of suspense and clandestine ops. There are a lot of
politics going on in the background that make you wonder
who the good guys really are. The descriptions of the
battle scenes and deaths that occur are not for the faint
of heart. HUNT THE SCORPION does not move at breakneck
speed, yet sometimes Crocker doesn't think things are
moving fast enough. This is the second book in Don
Mann and Ralph Pezzullo's SEAL Team Six series,
and it closes with Crocker's team being given another
assignment. I can't wait to read number three!
Thomas Crocker and SEAL Team Six are back for another
adrenaline packed adventure from former SEAL commando
When a nuclear device goes missing, and surfaces in the
clutches of known terrorists, the United States calls on
its most prized anti-terrorism force: Navy SEAL Team Six.
Thomas Crocker and his squad from HUNT THE WOLF are called
into action, protecting the world from terrorist threats.
With the same real life insight and pulse pounding action
he brought to INSIDE SEAL TEAM SIX and HUNT THE WOLF,
Don Mann takes readers inside the most elite combat
unit on the planet and on an action-packed ride that is
sure to appeal to fans of Vince Flynn and Brad Thor.
