Exciting news! The Freeport Robbery, the new Travelers novel, will be released in May.
The cover design is by Paramita Bhattacharjee at creativeparamita.com. As usual, she’s taken my ideas and turned them into something special.
The jumping off place for The Freeport Robbery‘s plot came from an article in The Economist about freeports being used to hide wealth from tax authorities. (Freeports are transit ports for moving goods between countries so that the goods don’t have to go through customs until they reach their final destination. If an object never reaches its final destination, it never gets taxed.)
Here’s the description:
Treachery. Conspiracy. Murder.
The Travelers, using the names Ron and Nicole Carter, break into a freeport vault to recover a stolen jewelry casket for return to a museum. Easy money. But after they’re ambushed during the break-in, they have to recover the casket from the hijackers. With the FBI and a criminal gang hot on their heels, can they retrieve the casket in time to return it and escape with their lives?
The Freeport Robbery is a noir crime thriller that will keep you on the edge of your seat. If you like nonstop action, exciting plot twists, and criminal machinations, you’ll love the fourth installment of Michael P. King’s Travelers series.
The Freeport Robbery will be $0.99 for the first few days after its release to say Thank You! to all of you. And not to worry, I’ll send a reminder when the release date is certain.
