Book Description

Chris Fairbanks is a lonely young man who joins the Navy in search of travel, adventure, and women—but mostly to escape his lower middle-class existence, his loveless family, and to find some meaning in his otherwise meaningless life. The Navy sends Chris to a small communications base in Scotland, where he is befriended by a disillusioned Catholic chaplain, Father Alexander Crowley. Crowley joined the Navy for his own sinister reasons—including his desire to incite a race war that will consume the world. Blinded by his search for friendship and acceptance, Chris reluctantly finds himself drawn into Crowley's white supremacist group and his alcohol-fueled plans for genocide. After realizing the depths of Crowley's madness and struggling with his own complicity in this reign of terror, Chris appeals to his chain of command. Met with indifference and disbelief, he takes matters into his own hands, leading The Trinity to an apocalyptic and fiery end. Set against the turbulent backdrop of the Cold War and the pastoral beauty of eastern Scotland, The Trinity is a contemplative exploration of the complexity of human evil.

David LaBounty has held jobs as a miner, a mechanic, a reporter and a salesman. His work has appeared in Rattle, the Los Angeles Review, Night Train, the New Plains Review, Booth, and several other journals. He has been nominated for the Pushcart Prize and other literary awards. He is the author of the novels The Perfect Revolution, The Trinity, and Affluenza and the poetry collection moon chalk. He lives in Michigan.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fun with characters at cross-purposes September 18, 2007
LaBounty's new novel, "The Trinity", is a deceptively simple story. A young man with a family life he needs to escape joins the Navy and is stationed in a remote location in Scotland. There he befriends a priest, who is in actuality, a totally bonkers white supremacist. The priest has grand plans of purging the non-whites from Scotland, and creates a three-man team, which he calls the Trinity, for this purpose.

The characterization of the sweet young man is in stark contrast with the insane priest, though both are fascinating to watch. But the structural component I enjoyed most was the way these two central characters so efficiently hear what they want to hear from each other. Neither seems to understand - until late in the novel - what the other's motivations are, yet they blithely continue their association, despite the promise of various kinds of tragedy in their respective futures.

Fold in some interesting detail about the US Navy - and not in an overbearing, Clancy way - and an almost nostalgic setting in the final days of the Cold War, and you get an enjoyable read.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Trinity Kindle Book July 14, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is an interesting mystery novel that depicts how easy it is to fool some people into participating in an evil cult. The author will need some time to grow to match the talent of the top ten mystery and adventure authors. I enjoyed the book.
