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)

    Story
    "A great thriller, whether you believe or not!"

    Daniel Byrne is a Vatican troubleshooter. A man tasked with debunking miracles from around the globe. When, what appears to be another scam, involves his uncle, a known conman and TV evangelist, Daniel thinks this will be one of his easiest cases.

    However, things are not what they seem and Daniel begins to think there is more going on with Tim Trinity than a simple con.

    In trouble with the Vatican for not closing the matter out, Daniel and Tim embark on a journey to find the truth.

    I thought this story was exceptional and I will definitely be looking out for the following books in this series. Sean Chercover creates and absolutely fascinating cast of characters who each draw you into their world.

    The plot is unique and the story rolls along at a great pace, keeping you interested all the way through.

    Luke Daniels does a superb job in narrating this tale and his representation of Tim, Daniel and other characters is exceptional.

    All in all, this is very much worth a read/listen.

    "Great Story, Amazing Narrator"

    This was a surprisingly good book. The story was fast paced, but still handled character development fairly well. It was entertaining, and the narrator just took it to the next level. He did well with accents and different voices to give the characters and dialogue life.

    "Hard to stop listening!"

    I selected this title for the elements contained within the writing. The manner in which the author wove and crafted the story and characters together kept me involved. I never felt a lull in the story. I was excited and engaged throughout. I'm definitely going for book 2!

    "Old Themes, New Twist"

    The themes of the book have been done before, but I really enjoyed the book. Well paced and very blunt. You really start to care about the characters. The diversity of people and religions and cultures was an interesting element.

    Story
    "Engaging premise, great start"

    I love the idea of a miracle hunter, an evidence-based seeker of the divine on earth. (Not quite the same thing as the Catholic Church's Devil's Advocate, but close. If only the Devil's Advocate had these high standards.) The hero is a young Catholic priest raised by a tent-preacher con man. Nobody gets stereotyped in this telling, which is so unusual. Nephew and uncle get back together, and sparks fly.

    Although Chercover is respectful of the spiritual impulse, this story suggests organized religion is a business prone to corruption and willing, when threatened, to engage in faking the evidence and even murder.

    Hard to argue with that, but it would have been terrific if the writer had also enlarged on what can make communities of the faithful a profound experience. That would have been a great book, and this is only a good one.

    First half of the book is thrilling. It trailed off into a caper, but never lost me entirely. The narrator is splendid. Worth a credit, especially for conflicted ex-Catholics.

    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.
