Five Star reviews for 'Trinity Icon'

The latest novel in the Michael Neill Adventure series has begun to garner reviews, and is being enthusiastically embraced by readers. 'Trinity Icon' is the third book in the series, and features military espionage, a healthy dose of action, the intriguing world of geo-politics, and even romance. When I began writing the book 15 months ago, I was drawn to the idea of a missile defense shield positioned in Poland and Romania--a topic that has now come to the forefront of current events.
