Render Unto Caesar
An incident involving a young Muslim found naked on a Cornish road in broad daylight draws Jack Mawgan into the sinister world of ‘Extraordinary Rendition’.
This campaign, run by the US security services, involved their operatives in torture in their search for information about Al Qaeda’s activities.
Jack’s involvement sets off a chain of events that leads him to the depths of the African interior in pursuit of a self-proclaimed jihadist fomenting rebellion and heavily involved in the drugs trade.

“I found this book excellent I got straight into it from the start picking up the characters that were introduced in Geoff’s first novel “For the Price of a Hat”. It’s a fast-moving book where action seems to be happening all the way through. I would thoroughly recommend it. Geoff’s first novel was good this one is even better I will look forward to the third part of the trilogy.”
“Yet another enjoyable yarn detailing the escapades of Jack Mawgan. This time Jack finds himself in Africa and in need of both his detective and medical skills. The story seems to revolve around the authors experiences within aviation, emergency medicine and police investigation to such an extent that it again leaves the line between fact and fiction somewhat blurred? Very enjoyable and can’t wait to read what awaits Jack in ‘The Mark’.”
“This, the second book in the Jack Mawgan series, is tightly written thriller that is difficult to put down as Mawgan and friends get drawn deeper and deeper into a tale of international intrigue and corruption involving spy agencies and the drug trade. As the author says, “The story is built around real places, real people and real events …”, so although the story is fiction, it is clear that Newman is drawing on considerable expertise or research as the book contains a great deal of detail about places, culture and events: a bit too much detail about some of the sleaze, for my taste. The title comes from Matthew 22:21, and is an apt title, as the reader will find out.”
