This was by far the best book of the series. The action and emotions were ramped up in Hunt the Jackal and I really enjoyed it. Crocker and his squad are sent to Mexico to rescue a senator's wife and daughter who were kidnapped by a Mexican drug lord who is called The Jackal. Mexico is extremely dangerous and Crocker and his squad just might find themselves and those that they love in more danger than they ever thought possible.
Towards the beginning of this book something sad happens that I have been dreading for a while now. I don't want to give too much away but I'll just say that the squad and I were pretty emotional for a little while. We managed to pull ourselves together though. The action is this book was amazing and the best out of the series so far. My heart was pounding through a lot of this book and the adrenaline was definitely flowing. I also really enjoyed that this book mentions some Aztec mythology. It was really interesting to learn some of the background on Mexican culture.
I was still pretty annoyed with Crocker when I first started this book but that changed when I really started to get into the meat of this story. I loved that he finally was trying to look out for his father and felt sorry for him when he really started to realize the toll that his job is putting on his family. I felt horrible for him and the rest of the squad when the danger got really close to home. I was definitely tearing up at the end. I look forward to seeing how Crocker and his squad will recover and move on from all that has taken place in this book. I can't wait to read more of this series.
