“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, and The Blackmail Photos are out now.
