The Road to Key West is an adventurous/humorous sojourn that cavorts its way through the Caribbean in the tumultuous 1970s - a carnival of extraordinary, exotic, and occasionally illegitimate experiences from Key West and the Bahamas, to Cuba and Central America.
In August of 1971, Kansas Stamps and Will Bell set out to become nothing more than commercial divers in the Florida Keys, but adventure, or misadventure, seems to dog them at every turn. They encounter a plethora of bizarre characters, from part-time pirates and Voodoo bokors, to wacky Jamaicans, Latin larcenists, and drug smugglers. Adding even more flavor to this Caribbean brew is a complicated romance, a lost Spanish treasure, and a pre antediluvian artifact created by a distant congregation who truly understood the term, "pyramid power."
Pour yourself a margarita, sit back, and slide into the '70s for a while. It's a trip that's guaranteed to make you laugh out loud, but just as easily lock you to your seat as you follow Kansas and Will through this cocktail of madcap adventures in paradise - on The Road To Key West.
If you have enjoyed Michael Reisig’s best-selling “Road To Key West” novels, you will love his new “Caribbean Gold” series, which begins with “The Treasure of Tortuga.”
In the first book of Reisig’s riveting new collection, you are drawn back in time, to an era of dark-hearted men, captivating women, and a seafaring adventure so real you’ll taste the salt spray.
The year is 1668. Englishman Trevor Holte and the audacious freebooter Clevin Greymore, sail from the Port of London for Barbados and the West Indies. They set out in search of adventure and wealth, but the challenges they encounter are beyond their wildest dreams – the brutal Spanish, ruthless buccaneers, a pirate king, the lure of Havana, and the women – as fierce in their desires as Caribbean storms.
And then, there was the gold and the emeralds – wealth beyond imagination. But some treasures outlive the men who bury them…
A NOTE TO MY READERS: THIS BOOK WAS ORIGINALLY PUBLISHED IN 2001, AS THE FIRST HALF OF A NOVEL CALLED, “BROTHERS OF THE SWORD/CHILDREN OF TIME.” With the encouragement of friends, I have republished that novel in two books: “Caribbean Gold - The Treasure of Tortuga,” and “Caribbean Gold – The Treasure of Time.”

“The Treasure of Time”
“Strap yourself in for a modern-day swashbuckler, packed with more action and right angle turns than a Wild Mouse ride, yet seasoned with a remarkable sense of spiritual insight.” – Award-winning columnist and editor, Robert Simpson
