New York Times Best-selling Author Omar Tyree’s Latest Novel Set for December 1 Release
New York Times best-selling author Omar Tyree, author of the urban classic FlyyGirl, departs from the genre that made him a star to introduce audiences to Gary Stevens, the hero of Tyree’s new international-thriller novel The Traveler: Welcome to Dubai, set to release December 1.
In Welcome to Dubai, Stevens arrives in the international vacation paradise city, where he stumbles into a class warfare that pits monarchs of the fast-developing nation against an army of immigrant laborers. The action ensues after a poor Indian worker falls to his death at one of the hundreds of new construction sites in Dubai. In retaliation, an Egyptian revolutionary strikes back to defend powerless workers, recruiting a following of loyal men to avenge the hasty, exploitative business practices of a young Emirati developer. The men seize an international hotel, endangering hundreds of foreign families and tourists who are held hostage. Stevens, who lost his own mother and best friend to criminal acts, feels compelled to fight for justice in an action-packed rescue mission.
“The Traveler is a new explosion from Omar’s creative toolbox with more to come,” says Zane, the New York Times best-selling author, president and founder of Strebor Books, a division of Simon & Schuster.
Welcome to Dubai is the first print book in The Traveler series that tracks Stevens’s adventures, and is preceded by No Turning Back, a short teaser e-book released in early 2013. Virginia-based Koehler Books is the proud publisher of Tyree’s new series.
Tyree kicked off his more than two-decades long writing career by selling books out of the back of his car. Word of mouth sparked a national following before Simon & Schuster came knocking with a multiple-book deal for the young author. Tyree has more than twenty published books to his credit.
