Author: Bernard Maestas

Genre: Thriller

Rating: A

Buy: Amazon

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?

Alex Kirwan and Ted Reagan, a freerunning ex-commanda and a computer hacker, have to rescue Gwen Kane, the estranged daughter of a millionaire. Bernard Maestas is a master at painting action scenes – this book reads like a movie, with each scene happening right in front of the reader’s eyes. The characters are complex and intriguing, and their background story provides a rich canvas for the author to build the story on. There’s a chase through Europe, Canada and the United States, which seems to come right out of a James Bond movie, that’s how good it is.

With some funny dialogue and characteristic quirks, the author makes the world of this book all the more inspiring and intriguing. An excellent book, one of the best thrillers I’ve read all year.
