This review was written for LibraryThing Early Reviewers.
This is pretty standard stuff. The writing technique is good, the action is solid, but the book holds no real surprises. The characters are defined enough, but I didn't fell any connection to them, keeping them from feeling real to the reader. If you are looking for a procedural with plenty of action, then you'll be okay. If you're looking for well developed characters with a life of their own, you're in the wrong shooting house.

Mann and Pezzullo deliver a well written procedural with plenty of authentic details and action. That's the whole purpose of the book, and it delivers just fine. ( ( )

Although the second book in the Thomas Cocker series, "Seal Team Six: Hunt the Scorpion" can be easily read as a stand-alone. From the first page, I found myself totally entranced and couldn't put the book down. Mann's experience as a SEAL certainly gives the story a realistic punch that puts the reader on edge and flipping the pages as quickly as possible.

I really enjoyed Thomas Cocker's character and the tough guy with a heart persona that made him very appealing and someone I really saw as a hero. Unfortunately, I didn't get enough of a connection with most of the other members of the team to really develop an opinion with their characters. I'm wondering if by missing the first in the series, I really missed out on the rest of these guys.

I thoroughly enjoyed SEAL Team Six: Hunt the Scorpion", although I did find sometimes the descriptions of the equipment the men carried to be a bit over the top and too detailed for me. With that said, I still love the book and am adding the other SEAL Team Six books to my must reads list. If you enjoy military thrillers, action and suspense or stories about our amazing SEALs, then you'll enjoy this novel!

For those that want to know: Contains adult language and violence, death, and some disturbing descriptions. ( )

Another great novel by Don Mann in the Thomas Crocker series. I received Hunt The Wolf via Goodreads Giveaway and was excited to receive Hunt The Scorpion as well. The author does a great job to build on the characters introduced and develop those introduced in this book.
I do quite enjoy that it can be read as a standalone and you don't necessarily need to have read the first to understand and grasp this one.
I don't read very many novels or thrillers for that matter, but this series and this author have drawn me in with the way the stories are told and presented in a high energy way that keeps the reader dialed in the whole time.
I enjoyed the varied adventures in this novel which all tied together through piratery, chemical weapons, search and seize operations, abduction, terrorist negotiations and all put together beautifully in the presentation a man trying to get his wife back who is being held hostage.

I enjoyed how it immediately setup for the next book, which I can not wait to begin reading, maybe I'll get Inside Seal Team Six and read that in the meantime ( )

SEAL TEAM SIX: HUNT FOR SCORPION A THOMAS CROCKER THRILLER is an exciting thriller. #2 in the "Seal Team Six",but can be read as a stand alone. I have not read either "Seal Team Six: Hunt the Wolf" or "Inside Seal Team Six" and I had no difficulties following the story. A high octane thriller from beginning to end. Follow, Seal Team Six on a journey of danger, pirates,search and rescue,nuclear weaponry,terrorist, danger,and action. A pulse-pounding thrill ride with a team of Seals you don't want to miss any of the action as Thomas Crocker and his team fight terrorism and danger. Mr. Mann is a great storyteller,unfortunately,or fortunately for him you feel as if your are there with these extraordinary men. What a great thriller. Written by someone who knows the insight into this team. I would highly recommend this title to any mystery,suspense,thriller lover and anyone who enjoys Seals.Oh, I did mention fast paced and action packed. Received for an honest review from the publisher and Library Thing.
