SEAL TEAM SIX: HUNT THE JACKAL by Don Mann with Ralph Pezzullo

Lisa Clark is wife of Jesse Abrams Clark Senior Senator of Virginia and mother of Jesse Jr. and Olivia who is on vacation with Olivia in Arizona before she leaves for the fall semester at Duke University. Lisa and Olivia are separately enjoying the amenities in different rooms of the spa condominium when they are abducted by crewmembers of the narcoterrorist group Los Zetas whose leader is Ivan Jouma better known as The Jackal.

Meanwhile, the Black Cell navy seal team is in Syria attempting to locate and destroy a downed predator drone without the permission of Syrian government to enter the country. Crocker, Davis, Daly, and Mancini are dropped to the ground in the area of the drone and Ritchie and Cal remain on the helicopter (helio) with the pilot and co-pilot. The ground team has completed their mission and waiting for return of the helio at the previous agreed pickup time, which the helio never arrives. Crocker and Daly search for the missing aircraft and discover the wreckage with the pilot, co-pilot, and Ritchie dead in addition to Cal who has severe injuries that require immediate medical attention. After returning to the states, Black Cell has a new assignment to pinpoint the location of and rescue Senator Clark’s missing wife and daughter, Lisa and Olivia from their captor. The abductor Ivan Jouma (The Jackal) made it clear in a letter to Senator Clark that he will deliver a beheaded Lisa to him if forty Mexican criminal detainees are not released within three days. The Jackal has more than one purpose for kidnapping the Clark women and Black Cell must accelerate efforts of the rescue mission to prevent the hostage’s deaths and their own termination by the hands of the Los Zetos terrorist cluster.

Installment four of the SEAL Team Six series is an action-packed enjoyable read full of adventure novel in addition to the emotional excitement. This novel exposes a sentimental and emotive characteristic of team leader Crocker never before observed in the previous books of the series installment. I recommend this novel to fans of the SEAL Team Six series and military drama aficionados who seek engaging action reading in a day.

I received this novel free from the Net Galley Reviewer Program in exchange for an honest and unbiased opinion.
