Publisher's Summary

Daniel Byrne is an investigator for the Vatican’s secretive Office of the Devil’s Advocate - the department that scrutinizes miracle claims. Over 10 years and 721 cases, not one miracle he tested has proved true.
But case #722 is different; Daniel’s estranged uncle, a crooked TV evangelist, has started speaking in tongues - and accurately predicting the future. Daniel knows Reverend Tim Trinity is a con man. Could Trinity also be something more?
The evangelist himself is baffled by his newfound power - and the violent reaction it provokes. After years of scams, he suddenly has the ability to predict everything from natural disasters to sports scores. Now the mob wants him dead for ruining their gambling business, and the Vatican wants him debunked as a false messiah. On the run from assassins, Trinity flees with Daniel’s help through the back roads of the Bible Belt to New Orleans, where Trinity plans to deliver a final prophecy so shattering his enemies will do anything to keep him silent.

Critic Reviews

“Sean Chercover shows a stellar hand through a coiling plot, weaving one taut drama. The story is tense, intelligent, harsh, and surprising - just what a reader wants in a thriller. This one goes on your keeper shelf.” (Steve Berry, New York Times best-selling author of The Columbus Affair)
“The Da Vinci Code meets The Dead Zone in Sean "Chercover’s The Trinity Game, a fascinating thriller that catapults us headlong into Vatican intrigue, global conspiracies, complex family relationships, and nonstop excitement.” (Joseph Finder, New York Times best-selling author of Paranoia and Buried Secrets)
The Trinity Game is a rare find. Heart-pounding cinematic action, unpredictable twists, and wonderful characters - all packed into a fascinating story. What a thrilling ride! I loved it from the start, couldn’t put it down, and was sorry to see it end. You have got to read this book!” (Marcia Clark, New York Times best-selling author of Guilt by Association)

Faith without Acts...Could Get You Killed.

The unique story outlined in the Trinity Game description online was my reason for downloading this audio book. The concept of a Vatican "miracle" exposer having to take on a grifter TV preacher - who is his uncle - now speaking in tongues makes for a nice level of conspiracy, intrigue, belief and, yes, doubt. Several plot lines weave themselves into this tale as we hear more about secret societies, TV preachers with bad hair, Roman Catholic priests with some special not-so-Christian skills, the dynamics of growing up in the land of tent revivals and of course the always interesting Vatican conspiracy theories.

Tim Trinity and his miracle exposing nephew, Daniel, make for an interesting pair as they attempt to heal old wounds and avoid several groups of enemies all while trying to really understand God's plan for them...even if that plan sounds a little screwed up.

I enjoyed the various plot lines in this novel although some seemed a little predictable at times and others clearly indicate that Daniel is finished as a main character for Sean Chercover. For those who tend to avoid "religious" themes, it's good to note that the book is neither "preachy" nor insulting when dealing with religion: Christianity in particular. Overall the story left me wanting more if just because it left some characters in need of punishment for their "sins".

The narration was also enoyable even with the various southern, cajan and Irish accents used for the myriad characters. I was able to keep characters seperate and the narrator was clean in his delivery in both tone and pronunciation.

I would recommend this book to mystery lovers as well as those who love a little religious conspiracy in their stories.

Not what I expected

I found this to be an interesting story and not at all what I expected.

Sean Chercover has created an interesting set of characters. Daniel Byrne is a Catholic priest who is having issues with his vows. His uncle is a known religious con man who is now speaking in "tongues" and Daniel's old (pre-priesthood) girlfriend becomes involved in the investigation into the truth or falseness of his uncle's predictions. The story is interesting, the characters are well drawn and have real depth, the situation is, to the best of my knowledge, unique in this type of book and the pressures on Daniel Byrne, from his superiors at the Vatican to those exerted by his ex-girlfriend, give this story a very different kind of feel. And, to add to all of that, this has the feeling of a new series and I expect to see Daniel Byrne again in an upcoming story.

The narration is very good, the story takes several very different turns and, although part of the resolution seems predictable, much is not. There are some drawbacks. I have never known situations where priests are granted as much leeway and forgiveness as Daniel is, given his predilections for disobeying orders, but they seem like small concerns given the overall feel and direction of the story line. Recommended, with those reservations, for those interested in finding a new suspense plot.

Trinity sees the truth

It’s a strange phenomenon. In America so called preachers , bible thumpers reap huge amounts of money from the poor. Trinity is one such and his nephew Daniel hates him for his cynical duplicity. But redemption is at hand for both of them. Excellent narrator
