This was a good story of good deeds triumphing evil and a believable event. Don't neglect to read book 3 of of this series or you will miss a great ending. I will be watching for other books by this author. He has a way of making you feel like you are experiencing the same or like feelings portrayed here & You will most likely read a little more quickly as the story develops.

Book Two of THE KING TRILOGY is as good as the first book. I'm glad I've got the third book ready and waiting in my Kindle. Very few mistakes in this book - grammatical, misspellings, editing. It's great not to have to figure out just what the author is trying to say.

The only down point for me is not understanding the Stock Market and how it runs. Terms used mean nothing to me so I don't really know what's being done. Not a must to enjoy the book but could have used an explanation of what certain wording meant.

I will recommend this book to others and would recommend getting all three books, assuming book three is as good as the first two. I like reading all books in a series, one right after the other so I remember who's who. Now I'm off to read book three.

I am a Science Fiction reader, no Science Fiction in this series, I call it Business Fiction. I read the 3 book King Trilogy in 3 days. It was great, had trouble setting it down to get some sleep, so haven't got alot of sleep in the past 3 days. Books 1, 2, 3: acquiring hot cash, refusing to spend it, spending it in a charitable non-traceable way. Together with all the different happenings with those processes. A great worldwide view of the oil-gas industry and various countries interactions with it including armed conflicts. Design was perfect, no grammatical errors, and real excellent structure.

This is another magnetic novel written by Author Stephen Douglass. It kicks off in New York City, 1980, with Louis Visconti, 33 years old, multimillionaire, living the lavish high life. His passion is possession and power, never interested in crossing the bridge into marriage. He is an investment broker for the Wall Street firm of Mara, Griesdorf and Visconti. In the previous novel, Jim Servito's death left more than 300 million dollars that was from unpaid petroleum taxes money laundered from Canada and the United States. Mike King maneuvers that money back from the Cayman Islands into the United States as a trust fund managed by Louis Visconti. Karen Servito, Jim's widow, and Mike King are now married and Mike has legally adopted Phillip, Jim's son at 10 years of age. Though Phillip is the sole beneficiary of his father's estate, Mike and Karen are overseeing the management of the trust fund. Move on to 1987 and the situation in the middle-east is threatening to explode like a drum of oil. They've produced more oil than there are buyers. OPEC's control has weakened because of greed and the oil prices rise. Suddenly, almost without any warning or symptoms, on October 19, 1987, the great fall of Wall Street occurs, known as Black Monday. Visconti has been in the Bahamas in isolation from news and phones. When he returns, King's trust which had climbed in value to over 800 million has now been reduced to the original 300 million. But he does not divulge this loss to King ... Visconti has mismanaged the trust all along, and he also knows of the secrets of how the money was laundered. Soon, Jim Servito's daughter, Kerri Pyper, 21 years old, married to Brian, a profession football player, arrives in New York City and is looking for a job.Read more ›

You definitely should read the 1st book in this series The Bridge to Caracas before reading this one. A lot takes place that you won't quite get unless you do. I have already purchased the 3rd in this series. Stephen Douglas really knows how to captivate his readers. The political intrigue intertwined with the Wall Street collapse is vividly portrayed--as are the greedy commodity traders. I can't recommend this series enough!!!!

Those who say the sequel is never as good as the original have never read The Tainted Trust. The 2nd book in the King Trilogy is filled with action, adventure, suspense, and even some romance. The deeper you get into the book and the characters, the more you are hooked. What started out in The Bridge to Caracas is played out masterfully in The Tainted Trust. I can't WAIT until I get my hands on book 3.

I am happy to be the first to review this wonderful novel. This is the second book of the King trilogy. In this one we meet the daughter, Kerri, who turns out to be as smart as her father. She meets her father, Mike, whom she has not seen since she was a little girl. I cannot begin to give any kind of synopsis, it's just too involved. The author did a great job at keeping me turning pages. This book takes place during the eighties and involves the oil industry, Wall Street, and high finance. I was a geophysicist during this period and worked for BP. So it is especially interesting to me.

The novel has many twists and turns and surprises, which I love in a book. The development of the characters and their relationship to each other is handled beautifully by this author. I love Mike, Karen, and Kerri and can't wait to read the last one.
