The Observer: The Colonel George Trofimoff Story is the second nonfiction book in The Prison Trilogy by author, Glen Aaron. The author gives us an intimate look into the fascinating and sometimes tragic life of Colonel Trofimoff.  Aaron is a consummate storyteller, and I was amazed at his thoroughness. His skill as an attorney is apparent as he builds and organizes an enormous amount of in-depth material for the reader to absorb. Colonel Trofimoff, was America’s highest-ranking military officer to be convicted of spying for the Russian KGB. He was a victim of a complicated two-year long sting operation which resulted in what can only be termed as a travesty of justice. The author profiles the Colonel from the time he was a young boy during WWII through his conviction and ultimate incarceration for life in the year, 2000. This book is a must-read for anyone interested in a fascinating look at our flawed American justice system.
