Editorial Reviews

Review

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

"SEAL aficionados and action addicts will find...engaging hours of reading here." -- Kirkus Reviews

"There's action galore as Crocker and his team are either shooting at terrorists or on the receiving end." -- John Harrington, The Oklahoman

"Hunt the Wolf roars out of the most authentic inspirations in the blood and bayonets commando saga genre, and for lovers of military action fiction, this is a read to have." -- James Grady, author of Six Days of the Condor

"Don Mann writes like a soldier talks--straight and to the point. And he packs a mean punch." -- Chris Ryan, author of Strike Back

About the Author

Don Mann (CWO3, USN) is the author of the national bestseller Inside SEAL Team Six and has for the last thirty years been associated with the Navy SEALS as a platoon member, assault team member, boat crew leader, or advanced training officer; and more recently program director preparing civilians to go to BUD/s (SEAL Training). Up until 1998 he was on active duty with SEAL Team 6. Since his retirement, he has deployed to the Middle East on numerous occasions in support of the war on terror. Many of the active duty members of SEAL Team 6 are the same guys he taught how to shoot and conduct ship and aircraft takedowns, and trained in urban, arctic, desert, river, and jungle warfare, as well as Close Quarters Battle and Military Operations in Urban Terrain. He has suffered two broken backs, two pulmonary embolisms, and multiple other broken bones, in training or service. He has twice survived being captured during operations.

Co-writer Ralph Pezzullo is a New York Times bestselling author and award-winning playwright, screenwriter and journalist. His books include Jawbreaker (with CIA operative Gary Berntsen).

Hunt the Wolf was listed as an action packed US Navy Seal fictional story. It was but 1/3 of it was the unit climbing a mountain, not looking for bad guys. That part would have been nice if I was looking for a Mt. climbing novel. Seemed pretty expensive for what was delivered. If you want a really great real life US Navy Seal story read Roberts Ridge which is about half as expensive.

I just finished reading Hunt The Wolf by Don Mann---WOW. What an emotional ride, I did not want it to end. If I'm ever having a bad day all I have to do is think about what Crocker had to endure. All I can say is look out Vince Flynn and Brad Thor---here comes the MANN. Fantastic job. Hope you have another book in the works.

When an action thriller is supposedly written or even co-written by a former Navy Seal, there is an expectation of authenticity, drama and suspense, which is completely lacking in this book.

Hunt the Wolf starts well, with an explosion at the US Embassy in Morocco. It continues well, with a Seal team preparing to seek revenge and be thrown into action. But around page sixty, it all turns bad. Perhaps this is where Mann handed over the laptop to Pezzullo and the story went to crap.

What follows is a completely unrelated mountain climb. All sense of urgency is lost. It makes no sense whatsoever. Instead of hunting terrorists, the Seal team climbs some mountain in Pakistan, where the team members end up with injuries. When the book returns to the main storyline, the reader wouldn't know. By then, even the more ardent reader would have thrown the book away.

The plot had great potential and the writers could have done so much more if they would have allowed the Seal team to actually do its job, like Mr. Mann used to, when he was on the field. Regretfully, he's forgotten what it used to be like.

I read the book, and liked it. My only gripe is the extended mountain climbing side story, it detracted from the main story. To be fair the rest of the story was fast paced,action packed, and a fun read. I'll give his next one a try for sure. Again I liked the author and book, I just didn't like how the mountain side story took up so much of the book. I disagree that the side story ruined the whole book but it's length did detract from it. I recommend people give the author a try if they have the funds to spare.

Started out real good and believable, I know it's a novel, but became more lame towards the end. The author was on MSNBC "Morning Joe" and said it was based on Seal Team 6 experiences, but was just too silly to have even a grain of reality in it. Don't recommend it.

The plot of this book was all over the place. I didn't really care about and/or like most of the characters, which is really an impressive feat given that fictional SEALs are almost always written as likable guys (unless it's the token jerk). The SEAL commander spend a mind-boggling amount of the book reminiscing and remembering things and being nostalgic. That, or missing his wife and daughter. We don't really "meet" the wife or daughter, so while he spends the whole book missing them, the reader doesn't really care.

Anyhow, the plot is like falling down the rabbit hole. As many have said, there is a random interlude of mountain climbing that has nothing to do with anything. After that, you're just zig-zagging around everywhere.

Just a sad take on military action. "Sad", when you consider who "co-authored" the book.

WHOA. What a thrill ride! It's very interesting to read a thriller by an actual former Navy SEAL. The depth of detail, the action scenes and the mental/emotional toughness is all there in technicolor. I was seriously impressed and breathless more than once. The plots as windey as a river, and you never know what's going to happen next. That part was actually a little exhausting. I had to put this down more than once just to get a break from the constant Kindle clutching, gasps and eye-covering when some of the scenes got crazy intense. I could definitely see this book as a movie. In fact, I'm actually really surprised it isn't yet!

This was a great book. What I loved about was that each of the Seal characters were human. They bled real blood and kept fighting! In a lot of these books the main character always easily wins the fight. That wasn't the case in this book.
