Trinity, an intelligence organization known only through whispers, specializes in covert action. Heading up this modern-day operation is founder Gerry Strakner and his team of skilled misfits. The key to staying alive lies within their code: never divulge your greatest fears or darkest secrets. But sometimes the past refuses to stay buried…

While his organization is under attack, Gerry must let his favorite operative, Caria, fend for herself against a vicious arms dealer. When he learns that she is caught in the crosshairs, his only hope is he's taught her enough to stay alive.

Now Gerry must call in an old favor to save Caria. Ivan Skavinsk, a reclusive mercenary, is the one man skilled enough to infiltrate the playing field of assassins. But which side is he truly working for? Does loyalty have an expiration date or will deception burn everyone within its reach?

CHASING VENGEANCE (The Trinity Missions #1) is an espionage thriller with a kick-butt female lead that has action, adventure and intrigue. This is a fast paced read from start to finish that is very hard to put down.

Trinity is the international intelligence organization countries and individuals go to for covert problem solving. Run by founder Gerry Strakner, an old world ex-CIA agent with his personally picked agents. One of these agents is Caria and she is his favorite. Caria was highly trained by the US Army and then recruited into Trinity. She is an extremely smart assassin with quick wits, and the physical skills to fight trained enemies.

Caria is assigned a hit that gets interrupted and begins the chase of a silver briefcase with biological test tubes inside that are being sold to the highest bidder. The arms dealer who has the briefcase used to be Gerry's partner in Trinity and he wants Gerry dead and Trinity destroyed. He doesn't know though that he has a mole in his gang of thugs, who is asked to protect Caria. Ivan Skavinsk is the mole and his story is intense and heartbreaking.

There are surprises and plot twists throughout. The characters are all fleshed out, complex and realistic. The plot is simple and fast, entertaining and intriguing. The globe-trotting has explanations of some of the political problems of each area explained without detracting from the flow of the story. The romance in this story is sweet, but not long and not continued so I would not consider this book a romance, but a straight thriller.

This book is so exciting and it makes you want the next installment immediately without leaving you on a cliffhanger. I love that! I will definitely be looking for Ms. Damara's next Trinity Missions book.
