Editorial Reviews

Brandice J. O'Brien
In the fall of 1999, fiction author William Manchee visited the island nation of Trinidad-Tobago for the first time, to watch his son play in a professional golf tournament. While in the small Third World country, he was fascinated by everything that caught his eyes. After gathering as much information as he could, Manchee knew he had to somehow incorporated the trip into a novel.

And he did. Manchee's sixth book, Trouble in Trinidad uses the island national as a backdrop. Entangling the lives of Plano high school student Kevin Wells and Trinidad's Prime Minister Ahmad Shah, the story is filled with thrills, action, adventure and romance.

As the plot for Trouble in Trinidad developed, he reflected on school shootings and put a twist on the concept of kids killing others. Instead, he thought, what if a high school student has the opportunity to save someone's life and who's going to react that quickly to stop an assassination?
The Monitor

Molly Martin
"Filled with vigorous, well developed characters, vibrant dialogue and as much hair raising action as the reader can handle; TROUBLE IN TRINIDAD is a gripping novel readers will find hard to put down."
MyShelf.Com
Manchee is a master at setting a mood, laying the atmosphere, and pulling you into the lives of these truly believable and sometimes quirky characters. TROUBLE IN TRINIDAD combines politics at its worst and a tender love story between Kevin and Deviane Shah, the daughter of the Prime Minister.
