Theft. Deception. Murder. The Travelers, husband and wife con artists using the aliases Joe and Tess Campbell, agree to steal a newly developed data-mining program. A simple, lucrative job. Or it would have been if their employer had told them half the truth. Instead, they discover that they’ve been thrown into a poorly-planned scam that turns into a maze of duplicity and betrayal. Nothing is as it seems, and the Travelers must scramble if they are to stay ahead of both the criminals and the police.
The Computer Heist is a noir crime thriller that will keep you guessing until the very end. If you like fast-paced action, intricate plot twists, and criminal mischief, then you’ll love the second installment of Michael P. King’s Travelers series.
