The idea behind this book was to lure Somali pirates to a heavy armed decoy luxury yacht and blow them to smithereens. One of the problems with fighting these pirates was that the ships they attacked, like huge oil tankers, were not safe settings for open gun battles, so the tankers usually did not have adequate securty forces which were capable of protection.

So the idea this book presented seemed good. However, the content of this book seemed to have too much dialogue and that dialogue seemed rather childish- like killer Navy Seals pleading with their captain to bring a dog aboard as a mascot and then trying to sneak cartons of very expensive wine which apparently is strictly against Navy procedures.

Also, it was my understanding that despite multi-million dollars ransomes paid, due to the logistics of pirating, pirates overall don't really make huge profits. But in this book the pirates seem to be quite wealthy beyond normal expectations which allows them to have tank busting missiles. I suppose to the extent that anything could happen, this was possible but do to the elementary dialogue of this book, I just found it to be implausible.

I personally did not like this book but the ideas presented for fighting piracy on the high seas is sill very intriguing to me.

A book about the Navy Seals is not a typical choice for me, but it was recommended and I decided to give it a try. I was immediately caught up into the action and adventure of the story after what was a brutal, but likely accurate portrayal of Somali pirates commandeering an American yacht. I especially enjoyed the variety of characters and their development throughout and am pleased to note that the author allowed the women to remain strong and important characters throughout the story. This is a book I would recommend to anyone who likes a fast moving page-turner that is well thought out with all the details tended to. After getting to know the characters I would like to read more about them and am hoping for a sequel.

This book was great with an interesting concept for going after the Somali pirates. The story puts highly skilled women into a battle and shows that they can hold there own. It even mentions one of the women out shooting the special SEAL team. I read this via my Kindle app which the formatting was not that great too many blank pages.

I'm not usually a great fan of action, but this was definitely a page turner. I liked the character development, and the action kept me hooked. I even found myself doing some Internet research to learn more about the area and the types of boats. Definitely a book that I would recommend to friends!

Good story line for those who like suspense. Not believeable, but still a good story.
It's a man's book, wouldn't recommend it for women.

Really liked this book. Full of action and also had its personal side. Kept me on the edge of my seat.. The only complaint I have is that the ending left me hanging. Could have used a more action packed final confrontation. Also would have liked to left the door open to perhaps another episode of this team in action. But as a wholly did enjoy the book.
