    Before "The Trinity Game" I had thought I was the only

    Before "The Trinity Game" I had thought I was the only person looking for miracles. Guess not!

    While conspiracy theories run rampant these days, rarely does one find a book that draws you in, from the first page, and takes you into the heart of the conspiracy, shows you both sides, and all the while continues to focus on the normal, everyday people that don't have a clue what's really going on behind the scenes. The characters are realistic, honest, and gut wrenching. And even when you think you know what's going to happen, whether it does or doesn't, effects you emotionally. And it points out that sometimes you don't know who the "good guys" are, because everyone really just wears a different shade of gray hat; no one wears white.

    I hope Mr. Chercover publishes another book soon. This one is too good to miss!

    couldn't possibly tell you since I never received the book I ordered!!!!!

    Was SO looking forward to reading this book - have read his others and was at his personal appearance in June at the Chicago LitFest. When I opened my package after buying "Trinity" online, the book I opened said "The Greatest Hunting Stories Ever Told." What the heck?? Tried to exchange it at a downtown Barnes and Noble Chicago location. They couldn't do it - said to mail it back with the label that was with my packaging. So...tried that. My local post office refused to accept the label that accompanied my book delivery for free return postage and said I would have to pay for it myself. So, what's up, Barnes and Noble? Unless you make this right, it will be the last time I ever buy ANYTHING from Barnes and Noble.

    What is Truth?

    This novel is quite a departure from the author’s previous books featuring a Chicago PI. It asks the reader to suspend disbelief and accept all kinds of conspiracies, while the protagonist, Daniel Byrne, a Roman Catholic priest working out of the Vatican charged with authenticating or disproving “miracles,” encounters one involving his own uncle, Timothy Trinity.

    Dan’s mother died in childbirth, and his father committed suicide shortly afterward, orphaning the boy. Trinity took the child in and raised him, while plying his talent as an itinerant preacher on a Southern circuit. He is a great con artist, and eventually Dan became disillusioned, leaving his uncle, later becoming a priest. Decades later, Trinity suddenly develops the ability to accurately predict the future, from natural disasters to sports events, resulting in the Church and the mob wanting to discredit him, one as a false messiah, the other because it is costing profits.

    So much for the beginnings of the plot, which goes on in various offshoots as Dan becomes more involved with his uncle and tries to protect him against threats, the FBI and other assorted entities. It becomes overly complicated and the reader is exposed to TMI (Too Much Information). There are exciting developments and the writing is well-developed, but the book probably could have benefited from some useful pruning, especially to shorten its length.
