Trinity Kindle Edition
More About the Author
I worked in the computer games industry for over twenty years as an artist and games designer. My debut novel draws on my experience of the industry. I now work as a graphic artist/illustrator, and some of my work can been seen on the covers of various books available on Amazon.
In my spare time, I'm a keen amateur detective, and can often be found searching for clues in the local bars and pubs.

To start with, I can't really place it in one particular genre. Somehow this novel combines chick-lit - written by a man and with a male main character - with comedy, and is coloured with an element of fantasy. Oh, and a healthy dose of crime too. It sounds like it shouldn't work, I know. But it does.
The author's writing style is hilarious, and I laughed out loud on more than one occasion - and that doesn't happen often. Don't get me wrong, I have a sense of humour and I love watching comedy, but for some reason I rarely find a book that makes me actually want to laugh. The writing is also very engaging and entertaining, as is the dialogue between the characters.
Ben is a likeable main character, but for me the star of the show was Trinity. I LOVED Trinity as a character, and despite the fact that imaginary friends don't really exist and this book was set in the "real" world, his place in the novel was entirely believable. I would be very pleased if the author wrote another book about Trinity because I would love to read more!
(Free review copy received.)
It had all the elements of a chick lit novel - fun, light-hearted with a little bit of exaggerated realism. The only difference is that the protagonist is male; but it could easily hold its own alongside any Matt Dunn's novels.
Ben Rider was unhappily married (only he didn't know it at the time), and when his wife died it shocked me, and I almost stopped reading. So glad I didn't! The death was sensitively done, but there was no lingering over it and soon the story moved on with the same humour and warmth that was there from the beginning. On the eve of her death Ben's imaginary friend reappears - Trinity. He has come to lead Ben into all sorts of scrapes all in the name of "his destiny".
Trinity is a cowboy (hence the cover) with three other personalities, which are hilarious in their own right. Love the cowardly pirate!
Ben's dry narration throughout the novel is a lot of fun, and has many laugh-out-loud moments. He meets Bonnie through his work, and when he discovers she has an imaginary friend all of her own, and one that he can see, well, I didn't think the book could get any funnier but it did!
Trinity is well-written and I can fully recommend it. A well-deserved 5 out of 5 from me.
Trinity is crime, comedy, romance and fantasy all tied up into a very neat plot, and although there is a comfortable suspension of belief, the character's and the plot are consistent with the style and we are fully transported into Ben's world.
Anything laced with fantasy is not usually my reading choice, but the author has woven it so cleverly into the plot, that I was almost unaware of the imaginary aspects of the story.
It is a lighthearted tale, but not a simple one. It is frothy and very very funny, but at the same time it has a basic integrity which keeps us rooting for the good guy. This is mostly portrayed through the strength of character in Ben, and he appeals to both men and women; I think maybe because there is a nice balance of romantic love combined with the more laddish sequences!
The build up to the dramatic denouement is action packed, and will not disappoint.
Well written and engaging. A truly unique read.
The path to this destiny is strewn with many dangerous moments for Ben, not just physically but emotionally. Were he a different kind of protagonist he the story would be much duller, for his wry narration is part of the charm of the novel. Not it all, though, because so much of this charm is down to Trinity and his wacky personality.
For Trinity is not your average imaginary friend. He doesn't just linger as a sort of adjunct to Ben's life. He has a vivid life of his own, with a nature that permits very human sulks and errors, all of which impact upon what happens to Ben. Although we are never sure where exactly Trinity comes from, we are aware that it is some sort of 'other' world. For Trinity is not the only imaginary friend who travels from there to come to the aid of humans.
Ben's new love Bonnie (and he has several old ones who play a part in the story) also has an imaginary friend, and the lovers and their imaginary friends manage between the four of them to make a right old mess before it's all ironed out satisfactorily and Trinity leaves Ben for good. Or does he? You'll have to read the story yourself to find out.
