TROUBLE IN TRINIDAD is about a teenager named Kevin Wells, who is much more mature than the average young man. He has high moral standards and respect for people of all ages. Kevin is a member of the color guard in his ROTC class. He is picked to carry a flag at a Trade conference to be held in Dallas at the convention center. This is where life for Kevin will change forever.

Kevin spots a man on the catwalk with a M2 rifle in his hands. When he turns and sees the laser imprint dancing around the podium, he jumps in front of the Prime Minister of Trinidad, Ahmad Shah, without even thinking. Kevin feels a sharp pain in his back as the bullet pierces his flesh. The next thing he remembers is waking up in Parkland Hospital only to find out that he has been in a coma for 10 days. The prime minister later invites Kevin to Trinidad. He accepts the invitation without realizing his life will be in grave danger. It's terrorist suspense at its best!

Manchee is a master at setting a mood, laying the atmosphere, and pulling you into the lives of these truly believable and sometimes quirky characters. TROUBLE IN TRINIDAD combines politics at its worst and a tender love story between Kevin and Devaine Shah, the daughter of the Prime Minister.

William Manchee has written another 5-star book and I anxiously await the next. To me, he stands out as one of the finest writers of our time.
