The Milan Job: The William's Hunt book 1




Meet Captain Alexandria de Sade, the proud and once loyal captain of Naviwerks chrono-ship #25. When she learned the truth about how the company was fleecing their customers she turned her back on the promotion they offered her, left the man she loved without a word, and disappeared with her ship.
With a plan in mind to undermine Naviwerks' business of artifact and heirloom retrieval, Captain Alex hired on several like-minded misfits to crew her chrono-ship which she re-christened The William's Hunt. They are: An awkward but genius Horotech, an irascible ex-marine, a flamboyant playboy, a churlish physician, and a hot-shot pilot.
Their first venture: go to Milan, Italy 1490 and retrieve the working model of Leonardo da Vinci's Gran Cavallo before Naviwerks does. What should have been a simple snatch and run mission for the newly formed band of pirates goes south nearly immediately. In their struggle to recover, they learn that there is much more behind Naviwerks' actions. Captain Alex and the crew of The William's Hunt are the only ones that stand a chance of putting things right,and it seems as if her crew's every step takes them deeper and deeper into discovering just how nefarious Naviwerks truly is.
All five of the monthly episodes of the maiden voyage of The William's Hunt are collected here in The Milan Job! Follow Captain Alex, Laurence Kane, Geri Reynolds, Nigel Wellington, Dr. Hennessey, and Angel Flynn as they try to stay one step ahead of Naviwerks and Agent Nash, all the while making a grab for the swag that will keep The William's Hunt in operation.

About the Author

Storytelling has been part of Krista's life for as long as she can remember, but it wasn't until one certain story just needed to be told that she began entertaining the notion of writing it all down. Inspired by the music of Midnight Syndicate, Krista's first novelette, Blackest Rose, was born. She entered it into a respected contest for aspiring authors, and after an agonizing wait that spanned months longer than what is normal for the contest because of understandable, but nerve shredding delays...she lost. Not even an honorable mention. However, her red headed atittude came to the fore, and with a hearty eff yew she had no idea what she was going to do, but by darn she was going to do it! What finally set her on the path to the creation of The William's Hunt series was surgery for two herniated discs in her neck. With nothing better to do than to zone out on Netflix, her mind began to work within another genre she had come to incorporate into her life: Steampunk. The seeds of Captain Alex, Laurence Kane and The William's Hunt were born! If asked, Krista would say that this is the first project she has ever started AND finished! The reality is that The William's Hunt is a serial. So that poses the question: Is it really "finished"? But with a galley of support from family, some very talented friends, and the unshakable faith from Pete, the mini-weiner dog that she might look away from her laptop for a moment to throw the tennis ball (because that helps stimulate the creative process, right?), it might be more correct to say that the project is an ongoing success.
