Hunt the Jackal by Don Mann, Ralph Pezzullo
  

Lovereading view...

A tense escapist read that carries you along at a good pace. A senator’s wife and daughter are kidnapped by a Mexican drug cartel led by the Jackal who, it turns out, is not at all well. The reason for the kidnapping is well hidden in a tale which gives us lots of background on the society in Mexico and how it affects the characters. The author was a SEAL officer himself and it certainly shows. Good stuff.

If you like Don Mann, Ralph Pezzullo you might also like to read books by Andy McNab, Chris Ryan and Vince Flynn.

Synopsis

Hunt the Jackal by Don Mann, Ralph Pezzullo

An action-packed military thriller for fans of Chris Ryan and Andy McNab. When a Senator's wife and teenage daughter are kidnapped, Crocker and SEAL Team Six are sent to the cities of Mexico and the jungles of South and Central America, hot on the trail of Mexican drug lords and a Colombian narco-terrorist who is known as the Jackal. A self-styled narcotics kingpin who has undergone plastic surgery to disguise his looks, the Jackal is as ruthless as he is colourful, and must be stopped. With drugs, gangs, double-crosses, and plenty of bullets, HUNT THE JACKAL will throw the team into a new environment and an unexplored corner of the world, allowing Don Mann to display his extensive knowledge about how elite warriors can adapt and fight in any situation.

Reviews

'Don Mann writes like a soldier talks - straight to the point. And he packs a mean punch.'

- Chris Ryan, author of STRIKE BACK and KILLING FOR THE COMPANY

'A steady stream of action makes this a worthy entry into the burgeoning SEAL thriller genre.' -Publishers Weekly

'Action addicts will find... engaging hours of reading here.'

-Kirkus Reviews

'Mann's sparse prose keeps the story crackling and he imbues the novel with authenticity thanks to his thirty years of service.'

-Suspense Magazine
