The Don’s Stimulus Package
How can a trilogy have four parts? Remember, with Roger Booth and Carl James, nothing is as it seems.
Filled with more twists and turns than a Western Diamondback Rattler making its way across the hot dessert sands in search of shade, “The Don’s Stimulus Package” is the fourth in the series of superbly written novels by Karl Boyd.
While robbing a small Italian bank in Don Giacomo’s area of operation, cousins Stuart “Stu” Turner and Derek Lee “Lefty” Hanley stumble across the twenty million dollars in loot from “The Texas Two Card Hold ‘em Heist” and make off with the money, thereby incurring the Don’s wrath.
When both are subsequently captured by the Don’s men, Stu informs Don Giacomo the purpose of the robbery was to provide funds for the largest con in history; bilking the U.S. Government out of one Billion Dollars in stimulus money. Intrigued by Stu’s plan, the Don calls his son-in-law, Roger Odem Booth and his partner in crime, Carl Jesse James out of hiding in Switzerland and back to Texas to assist Stu in his efforts.
With Roger’s cunning and careful planning, plus the aid of greedy Senator Paul Boehk, nearly one billion dollars is appropriated and the confidence game becomes a huge success – perhaps too much so. When faced with the present poor economy and the resulting clamor for jobs offered as a front to their actions, Roger and Carl take the Don’s Stimulus Package to new heights and once again prove these two con men have hearts as big as Texas, or perhaps the entire United States. In the end, everyone is a winner, (or are they)?
Along the way, Karl’s faithful readers meet several new and interesting characters and renew old friendships with members of Roger and Carl’s crew. You’ll share a wide range of varied adventures, while Karl Boyd leaves you hanging onto the edge of your seat wondering what will happen next. As always, everyone should remember, “With Roger and Carl, nothing is as it seems!
Once again, in his longest novel thus far, “The Lost Priest”, Karl Boyd works his magic and paints vivid pictures with words to bring a diversified cast of characters to life.
Set in Texas, Bermuda and Brazil, this two part masterpiece, (“The Lost Soul” and “The Lost Spirit”), introduces you to Jocquin “Jock” Becker, Lorna Hayden, Tom Fitch, Tim Fitch, Kate Fitch, Cheryl, Catherine Bishop, Jose Hernandez, and Frank Moses. And, last, but definitely not least - a man-eating great white shark that affects all of the above.
Originally the first novel Karl Boyd ever wrote, “The Lost Priest” has taken him eight years to perfect. We believe the finished product is worth the wait. You will too. Enjoy!
For the first time in five published novels, Karl Boyd masterfully blends actual historical fact with his own “one of a kind” creative style of fiction to create a superb novel titled: “Palmyra, Isle of Death”.
From the first line of the attention grabbing prologue and throughout the following thought-provoking chapters of this whirlwind adventure, Karl Boyd’s unique storyline is so realistic and believable, that before long, the reader cannot separate true history from Karl’s boldly embellished fiction.
Book one: The Nearly Perfect Plan
A story of how a gang of ex-Army buddies join together to hijack and rob three Brinks armored vehicles on the open highway and make them disappear in a matter of minutes, along with the payloads of thirty-four million dollars.
The same well-meaning crooks hijack a cruise ship and rob the casino, Purser’s office, jewelry store plus all the passengers as a guise to assist the FBI in capturing one of the world’s most wanted terrorists.
Roger, Carl and their gang are at it again – this time they’re back in Las Vegas, where they plan to steal the first prize of twenty million dollars from the final table at the Universal Poker Tour.
As usual, Roger’s final plan is unique and deceitful. Along with the FBI and local law enforcement agencies, you’ll wonder how they did it and where the money is.
As a bonus, readers finally discover what one of their previous victims, Richard Murdock, wants Roger and Carl to do in repayment for swindling him so may years ago.
Although the pair of con men agrees to do Richard’s biding, as always, with Roger and Carl and their nefarious assistants, nothing is as it seems.
Be prepared for more double crosses and a story that keeps you guessing until another unexpected conclusion.
Long-time fans of Karl Boyd’s novels will wonder if this third part of the trilogy is actually the last adventure they’ll share with Roger and Carl. But, fear not, there is a fourth episode being written as we speak.
