This timely military thriller finds SEAL Team Six and their humanitarian allies confronting a notorious ISIS general, the Viper, during his occupation of Aleppo, Syria.
Despite the efforts of the Assad government and its Russian and Turkish allies, Syria is succumbing to the Islamic State. While Crocker and his SEAL Team Six comrades try to help a small Kurdish border town organize a resistance army, he finds an unexpected connection with Severine, a French epidemiologist working for Doctors Without Borders.
As Severine and her colleagues establish a makeshift hospital in besieged Aleppo, Crocker counsels caution. He knows too well that their NGO status will be no protection from the Viper, a notoriously vicious ISIS general with a deeply personal hatred of the West. When the Viper's men kidnap one of Severine's American colleagues, Crocker will pull every string at his disposal to launch a rescue mission. But in a situation where the US has no official business, he'll push every boundary of how far he's willing to go—and how far his SEAL brothers in arms will follow him—to save innocent lives.
"As real as it gets! Hunt the Viper reads like it was pulled from official mission traffic. Forget silly TV shows and movies, this book will show you exactly what it's like to be an operator at the tip of the spear. Don Mann and Ralph Pezzullo's SEAL Team Six series are the most authentic military thrillers on the market. Period. End of discussion."
