In prison, the author was assigned Colonel George Trofimoff as his cellmate. The Colonel turned out to be the highest-ranking U.S. military officer ever convicted of spying. After initially resisting, Aaron, the author and a retired attorney, agreed to look at the Colonel's case with the hope of finding a reason to make an additional appeal. What Aaron found was a complete travesty of justice, an entrapment, although the American judiciary allowed it. For two years, an FBI agent had posed as a D.C. Russian Embassy representative in a sting operation designed to bribe and entrap the Colonel into exchanging what turned out to be a made-up story of espionage against America for the promise of a $45,000 payment by the "Russians." The resulting federal trial in Tampa railroaded the Colonel into a life prison sentence. This is the second book in The Prison Trilogy by the author and dynamically tells the story of Colonel George Trofimoff.

About the Author

At the twilight of the professional legal career of Glen Aaron, his representation and involvement with Jackie Bancroft Spencer Morgan, a Wall Street Journal heiress, and her husband, Ronnie Lee Morgan landed Aaron in federal prison. From this involved relationship and his prison experience, Aaron has written The Prison Trilogy, as an observer and an author. The three volumes of The Trilogy are: Observer: The Ronnie Lee and Jackie Bancroft Spencer Morgan Story, a tale of people, greed, envy, manipulation -- even crime.
Observer: The Colonel George Trofimoff Story, the tale of America's highest-ranking military officer convicted of spying, and
Observer: The Prison People; The Prison Experience.
In his legal career, Aaron specialized in exclusive trial work and international business and banking. His legal career spanning forty years has led to a writing career in retirement of genres both fiction, nonfiction and international business advice. Typical of his critical thinking style and pulling no punches, his books often highlight injustice in government and the criminal justice system.

Born and raised in Midland, Texas, with a BA from Baylor University, majoring in English lit and macroeconomics from the Hankammer School of Business and a JD from the University of Texas, Glen Aaron lives in Midland with his wife, Jane, and their two rottweilers.
