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.

What the Critics Say

“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)

    What disappointed you about The Trinity Game?

    Very disappointed


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    I'd like to listen to all of the John Rain books by Barry Eisler


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The beginning of the story when trinity starts to foresee events in the near future


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The Trinity Game?

    After a great start, the rest of the book is very bad


    Any additional comments?

    I was misled by the stars given to this title. I wish I never had bought it. Worst book I've listened in months!

    "Intricate Intriguing Plot"

    Trinity Game was well-plotted, well-paced and contained characters with interesting back stories. I'm happy to see it appears to be the first of a series! Luke Daniels is really a master of dialects and portrays the differing personalities exceptionally well.

    Story
    "Conspiracy Theory Mystery, Vatican & Beyond"

    The premise for the story was sound; it engaged me, as did the character development of our protagonist, a young miracle-disproving priest. Three-quarters through the tale, I was impressed, but it lost momentum and flailed a bit toward the end. That said, it was an enjoyable listen, and those who gravitate toward shadow-government tales, conspiracy theories, Vatican dark-doings and the like are sure to find it likewise a good take.

    "A seriously good book!"

    This book had too many good qualities to mention. Very entertaining and also very thought-provoking. I hope to see more by this author soon and hopefully with the same main character. This is one I will listen to again in the future.

    Story
    "What if you knew someone who could...."

    Predict the future, but wouldn't quite tell you how, and then added a profound evangelical cast to the concept just to mix things up.
    Well, if that is something that sounds good to you, then you will enjoy this outing.

    All around entertaining, albeit with a VERY dissappointing ending ( and the almost obligatory lead for a sequel ).

    Very good, at times inspiring ( small insider joke there ) narration. Overall, I enjoyed this offering, and can recommend it with the stipulations noted above.

    "Enjoyable audiobook"

    A good story about Daniel Byrne's journey as he has to test all of his prior beliefs about his religion, his uncle, and his past. I would like to see a sequel to this.

    "Nice Find!!"

    I'm not sure why I chose this book, but I'm so happy I did. Not a "perfect fit" for the mystery-thriller genre, it adds in a little fantasy and mysticism. No clear line between black and white, or should I say good and evil. The ending was a bit of a let down, but certainly didn't ruin the experience.

    Full Time Mom, Full Time Employee, Wife and hopefully much more. Haven't read an actual book since I was pregnant 5 years ago. Now I have time to "read" everyday with audio books!

    Story
    "At least it has a great narrator"
    Would you try another book from Sean Chercover and/or Luke Daniels?

    Luke - yes
    Sean - probably not


    Would you ever listen to anything by Sean Chercover again?

    I don't think so


    Any additional comments?

    I love religious who dun its and dramas. I saw this book and that Luke narrated it and had really high hopes. Unfortunately it didn't live up to my expectations. I found myself day dreaming while listening and not even bothering to rewind. I was just biding my time until it was over and I could get something else. Way too much to wade through with too many characters to appreciate the ending. I won't even go into what I thought about the ending so that I dont spoil it for anyone. But I was disappointed.
