The Computer Heist

The Travelers: Book Two

Theft. Deception. Murder. The Travelers, husband and wife con artists using the aliases Joe and Tess Campbell, agree to wreck a computer server and 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, amateur 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 fast-paced crime thriller that keeps you guessing until the very end.


“King’s (The Traveling Man, 2015) latest thriller picks up the trail of his married con artists as they descend on a software company. . . . After surviving their previous con in Seanboro, this ruthless, manipulative couple once again hopes to fleece a deserving mark. . . . Personal lives, however, tend to skew even the best-laid scams. . . . King returns in fine form with his devious creations in tow. . . . The violence here, though brief, is unexpected . . . the repercussions electrify the narrative. . . . King strikes another vein of modern noir gold. . . .”—Kirkus Reviews 

“Five-plus stars to The Computer Heist. It's a worthy addition to this excellent series of offbeat mysteries. . . . Can't wait for Joe and Tess' next adventure.”—Publishers Daily Reviews
