Product Description

2013 International Thriller Award Nominee

Daniel Byrne is an investigator for the Vatican’s secretive Office of the Devil’s Advocate—the department that scrutinizes miracle claims. Over ten 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.

2.0 out of 5 stars This One Didn't Hit Me 12 Oct 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
"The Trinity Game" (which came out on July 31, 2012) is one of the many books written by Sean Chercover and published by Amazon's imprint, Thomas and Mercer. It's a story about a priest, Daniel Byrne, who works for the Vatican investigating reports of alleged miracles. The problem is he has an uncle, Tim Trinity, who's a con artist televangelist making a living off false miracles.

Actually, Trinity is more than just an uncle, given that he raised Daniel after Daniel's parents died when he was just a baby. But growing up with a grifter left Daniel angry and degraded. So, in an act of rebellion against his televangelist caregiver, does he turn to nipple rings and drugs? No. Instead he becomes a Catholic priest.

As a priest, the now Father Byrne works with the Office of Devil's Advocate. The office of Devil's Advocate (in this novel anyway) exists to expose false claims of miracles and confirm true ones. Daniel has taken up an assignment there with the hopes that one day his investigations will turn up a true miracle. If they do, he hopes he will be able to believe again.

What he doesn't expect is for the true miracle to come through his con artist uncle, forcing him to reconnect with Tim Trinity in order to investigate and expose his miraculous powers of precognition.

But Trinity, as it turns out, is as confused by his newfound powers as Daniel is. During services, Trinity goes into a trance and speaks in tongues, but when a recording of the tongues is played backward at one-third speed, it comes out as deadly accurate predictions told in perfect English.

This miraculous clairvoyance leads people to the Reverend Trinity in droves.

5.0 out of 5 stars Trinity Game - a wild and thrilling read! 1 Aug 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
Trinity Game is fast-paced, engrossing and really original page-turner. From a crazy premise (vatican detective investigating his crooked TV evangelist uncle) the book takes you on a wild ride to a thrilling finale. I suspect it's a bit of a marmite book - you either love or hate this sort of thing. Personally I loved it and couldn't put it down. Way more action and intrigue than a dan brown - 5 stars.

4.0 out of 5 stars Far Fetched but Interesting 30 Nov 2012
Format:Paperback|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Daniel Byrne works for the Vatican as an investigator for the Office of Devil's Advocate. His job is to investigate the validity of apparent miracles and his record to date is that he has investigated 721 cases and found each and every one of them to be false. His next case involves a TV preacher and con man, Tim Trinity, who has, apparently, started to speak in tongues. These can easily be converted into English and prove to be remarkably accurate prophecies. The complication is that the preacher is his uncle who brought him up until the age of 13 when he ran away from home.

Much to Daniel's surprise, his uncle is not necessarily the fake he initially assumes. Much of the book concerns the reaction of the populace in general to this new prophet amongst us. Not everyone is pleased. The Vatican clearly sees it as threatening their business model. Various underworld characters consider that Trinity's prophecies will cost them money. Government organisations, whilst wanting to be seen to protect free speech, also feel threatened. Various other shady organisations with their own agendas also get involved.

Daniel himself is an interesting character. Clearly his motive for working for the Vatican is that he is secretly hoping that he will come across a genuine miracle which will affirm his rather shaky faith. However, his view of faith and the proof he initially seeks change as the story goes on. Trinity himself makes a 180 degree turn from one with no faith at all to a believer who accepts everything which happens as God's will.

Initially interesting, this story turns into a chase around the southern states of America, with both Tim and Daniel in considerable danger which is quite tense and, at times, fast moving.

4.0 out of 5 stars Terrifically engaging thriller 13 Aug 2012
By marcoscu TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Paperback|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
I rarely read mysteries or crime novels - I'm not really a fan. I picked up The Trinity Game because I enjoy most things that have a hint of the paranormal, and was glad I did, it was a truly terrific read, a fast moving thriller with an intriguing premise, a crime thriller with a supernatural twist that hooks you and doesn't let go. My only complaint is that my favourite character, the best character, doesn't make it to the end. Such a waste, but a demise that was always on the cards.

It's hard to say much more without spoiling the plot. The Trinity Game is not especially unique or original - Religious investigators, supposed miracles, Vatican shenanigans and double dealings have been fashionable since the Da Vinci Code - but Sean Chercover twists the usual premise and sets it amongst the show-preachers of the American South, adding great atmosphere, and he's a much better writer than Dan Brown.

It's not great literature but it's not meant to be, it's a hell of a page-turner, with enough twists to keep you guessing. Thoroughly enjoyable nonsense which I highly recommend. I look forward to the sequel.
