The Traveling Man (The Travelers Book 1) Kindle Edition
"The Traveling Man by Michael P. King is an exhilarating ride into the world of con artists.... The action is nonstop and the pacing is perfect.... Both the traveling man and his wife are great antiheroes, blending in enough humility to make them likeable and believable. I am usually someone who can figure out the ending of a book, however, with The Traveling Man, I had no idea what was going to happen next."--Amanda Monell for Readers' Favorite: 5 stars
"I found The Traveling Man (The TravelersBook 1) by Michael P. King to be quite entertaining with a tightly woven plot. The central protagonists as well as the supporting characters are superbly drawn and I alternately found myself on their side or against them, depending on the situations in the book."--Gisela Dixon for Readers' Favorite: 5stars

About the author
Top reviews from the United States
There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
Perhaps the writer is not interested in the difference between subject and object pronouns but imagine his protagonist saying, "Me are/am interested..." Further to that point, respect if not a grammar rule, puts the other characters first. "My associates and I are interested..."
Will I, or should I say, Me will be able to continuing reading with this major negative in my mind? If so, and me like it, me may consider writing a review of the entire book.
Synopsis (from the author):
In a life-and-death contest among criminals, even the most cunning may not survive…
The Traveling Man and his wife have built a life for themselves conning criminals and getting away scot-free. But when their latest scheme to sell contaminated land goes south, they find themselves in a cat-and-mouse game with the crime boss who’s turned the tables on them and the partners who’ve betrayed them.
Are you ready to take a walk on the wild side?
What I liked:
The Traveling Man was a fun read! Lots of action, plot twists, great cons, and betrayals kept me guessing what was coming next. Add to the mix the innocents caught up in the game, the oddly ethical bent of the Traveling Man, and it’s a winning combination.
What I didn’t like:
Despite the good parts mentioned above, the book did bog down a few times as The Traveling Man and his plans fell apart. I had issues with some of the dialogue as well.
The Traveling Man (The Traveler’s, #1) was an enjoyable read. The cons were flawed enough to be believable, the characters’ amoral enough to pull off their scams, yet Rob (The Traveling Man) had an ethical side. If you’re a fan of crime novels, read this one. Please note there is sex, violence, and strong language.
The grifter couple, whose real names we never know, are currently Tom and Patty. They've taken a partner, Buddy. The plan is to sell contaminated land to the town boss and walk away with over $1 million to split. But Buddy has a side con going on. There is betrayal after betrayal. They manage to carry out their con and get rid of Buddy, but he just won't stay gone. He shows up and gives them more problems on their new con.
I love the Travelers series and have another one waiting to be read.
A few pages into the story, I saw myself reading a riveting story, with characters that I started off not liking but which in the end, I was rooting for. Rob and Pamela, the two main characters, in spite of their many names, were two scammers, but they got me rooting for them when I found out they were scamming scammers. Rob, though a scammer, was a fair minded man. He made a promise, he kept his promise. This may be his saving grace in the end.
I thoroughly enjoyed this story. I couldn’t put the book down. I would like to say that the writing was impeccable, but towards the end, I believe the author was carried away, and failed to check and correct a few minor errors.
Top reviews from other countries
For me, the story fell a bit flat, and the characters could have done with some further fleshing out. I couldn't care one way or another what happened to any of them. A few grammar and punctuation hiccups appear, along with passive writing. However, on the whole, it's an engaging read. It just doesn't seem to lead anywhere, and by the end, I wondered what the point was. I'd just read about two different scams that blew up in the characters' faces and then, eventually, resolved, and then the book finished.
If you like lots of violence, sex, and cussing, then you'll probably get into this book. So, if this sounds like it might be for you, then I'd say give it a go.
(Think Hustle) Well written, pacey story which draws you in and keeps you hooked until the finale. Book one of a six book series. Hugely recommended.
