“Loved the story, loved the characters, loved the con, loved the feel of the crime. The Traveling Man is a great first novel. Michael P. King is a writer to watch.”—Charles L. P. Silet (author of Talking Murder)
“The best couple of con artists in contemporary fiction. . .”—Publisher Daily Reviews
Michael P. King
How many times have you heard or read a news report that made you think, “You just can’t make this stuff up. What could they possibly have been thinking?” People often involve themselves in a chain of events that leads to unforeseen consequences simply because they want to take what they think is the easy way out or a short cut to wealth or fame. I’m fascinated by this tendency, and it’s the jumping off place for my fiction.
I’m a Kirkus Reviews critically acclaimed crime fiction writer. I’m currently working on a series of noir crime thrillers featuring a husband and wife team of con artists, the Travelers, who specialize in stealing from other criminals. The Traveling Man, The Computer Heist, The Blackmail Photos, The Freeport Robbery, and The Double Cross are out now.
