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?
Alex and Ted make a most extraordinary duo.With one an ex-commando, and the other a computer hacker with impressive skills, it’s no wonder they find themselves in Europe on a missing to save Gwen Kane, the estranged daughter of a Forbes millionaire. Gwen barely escaped the clutches of a cult, and the cult seems dead set on getting her back. Gwen might be charming, but a chase all across Europe, Canada and eventually the USA seems a bit exaggerated – so why is Gwen that important to them? And will Alex and Ted find out why before they get killed? And more importantly…will they get paid?
That last sentence is a typical example of the humor you’ll find in this book, sharp and fun, the kind of humor appropriate for dire circumstances like when you’re being chased by half a dozen cult members, or when you have to get a little “creative” to get rid of them. In that way, the book reads like an action thriller movie, with some hilarious one liners.
I enjoyed it, and if you enjoy a good thriller with some light-hearted humor, you’ll probably love it too.
