It was the moment of disaster when silence gives the boundary between peace and violence.

Alexandra Dolnikov is a twenty-year-old chemistry major at a Chicago university who might, if she works hard, graduate by 1974. She struggles to get along at home and thinks she has figured out how to manage work, school, and a tiny apartment, all on her own, until her parish priest asks a favor. She cannot refuse, though she doubts that the missing icon he is looking for could be miraculous and is sure her intervention will fail.

While fulfilling her promise to the priest, she meets a captivating man who draws her ever deeper into a world of secrets she did not know existed. That it is also a world of violence and treachery becomes ever more clear to her as she learns the costs of her smallest decisions.

In her search for what may or may not be a miraculous icon, Alex becomes the bait in a plan to stop a deadly terrorist attack. Her life depends now on Charlemagne, the premier freelance specialist team used by Western governments for black operations conducted without fingerprints, and they are every bit as dangerous as their targets.

Trinity Icon is the first novel in K.A. Bachus’s fast-paced Charlemagne Files series chronicling the lives of a team of deadly Cold War intelligence operatives over three decades.

"I enjoyed this book very much. The characters were real people with real life fears, hopes and dreams. The story is highly plausible. It was difficult to put down which is why I am writing this review at 1:00 in the morning."
