Admittedly I had never read a book by Ward Larsen, nor was I a huge fan of the spy thriller. I have always swayed toward the feel-good books and such, but I must confess “Stealing Trinity” was an unexpected, much-enjoyed treat. I was taken back to a time that I had only read about on occasion and studied about during school as an assignment many years ago.
Alex Braun is a spy who travels from Berlin to England, far and wide and finally to the United States. His college sweetheart from Harvard, Lydia Cole is there in Newport, Rhode Island visiting her family with her ass of a husband. Karl Heinrich, a German Fascist, wants nothing other than for his side to be the winner. The two meet up and one tries to out-do the other. Sometimes, I really couldn’t tell what was going on and who was two-timing the other – but, hey, this is fiction – so ignore the details.
“Stealing Trinity” by Ward Larsen is packed with tons of estrogen from the hero, spice from the heroine, a really good bad guy, jaw-dropping drama and race to the end. Alex Braun is worth meeting and you will not be disappointed with his antics. Who doesn’t like to be the winner?!
