Gwen Kane, estranged daughter of a Forbes millionaire and the bearer of a horrifying secret is lured into a dangerous international cult. It falls to Alex Kirwan and Ted Reagan to rescue her. What should be easy money for the mercenary team of a freerunning ex-commando and his computer hacking partner proves to be anything but as they find themselves doggedly pursued across Europe, Canada and the United States by highly trained forces with resources vastly disproportionate to the recapture of one missing acolyte.

Will Alex and Ted unravel the mystery of Gwen’s importance in time to survive?
Will Gwen pierce the seemingly impenetrable armor around Alex’s heart?

Will Alex and Ted get paid?

In Godwin’s Law, Gwen Kane barely manages to escape the clutches of a cult, when Alex Kirwan and Ted Reagan, rescue team extraordinary, turn up to rescue her. And thank God they do, because these cult members are ferocious, and won’t stop at nothing to get Gwen back. In total James Bond movie style, the three of them escape through the streets of Berlin, using their environment to their advantage. Luckily an ex-commando and a computer hacker form a great duo, because they manage to escape – at least for the time being. But when it becomes clear the cult isn’t ready to give up yet, and they use any resource to their disposal to stop Gwen from getting away, Alex and Ted begin to wonder why the cult is so anxious to get her back.

With excellently written, fast-paced action scenes, author Bernard Maestas describes everything from vivid chases on the streets to fight scenes. The book is a non-stop rollercoaster of events, a freight train going at almost incromprehensible speed. Although going fast, the story is easy to follow, and the characters are laid back and relaxed, and easy to connect with as a reader.

I could easily see this book being turned into a movie. An extraordinary thriller, highly recommended to all fans of the genre.
