Free Kindle Books 8-7-13

PLEASE. Do everyone a favor and write an Amazon review if you end up reading a book (or trying to and giving up in disgust). It does not have to be much. Just tell what you think of the book. By the way, many times I have found the 1 and 2 star reviews on self published works to be far more revealing about the book than the more stellar reviews. Reviewers need gratification too, so if a review is helpful to you, please click on the voting button to indicate it was helpful.

Most times these books are only free for a day or two, so you have to grab them while you can. Worry about whether you really want to read it later if it seems interesting. And be careful, they can change from free to not free at any time. I have also decided to list books for no more than 3 days in a row to avoid cluttering up the posts, unless there is some reason I think the book deserves extra attention.

From the top 100 free list
As is typical, there are also several religious and recipe books on the list today, along with the usual assortment of romance, porn and near porn. I don't call them out because they don't interest me. Click on the link above and search through the Free List Tab if you are interested in such books.

Hamfist Down!: Evasion, Survival and Combat in the Jungle (Hamfist Trilogy Part 2)
It's August, 1969. Hamilton “Hamfist” Hancock has been shot down over Laos, and must use all his skill, and luck, to avoid capture and certain, violent death. To facilitate his rescue, he must become a ground FAC and direct airstrikes against North Vietnamese targets on the Ho Chi Minh Trail. And, to survive, he must engage in hand-to-hand combat.

But Hamfist may face his greatest battle after his rescue. Back in Vietnam, while recuperating at the hospital at Cam Ranh Bay, he experiences a sapper attack. And, following his return to the air, Hamfist is tormented by a flying error, an error which may have cost a comrade his life.

Only time will tell if Hamfist can regain his self-respect and passion. On his final flight, Hamfist faces a brutal enemy in a life-or-death duel that will determine if he will be shot down once again or return home to his soul-mate. The rescue, the airborne mistake and the final battle force Hamfist to reevaluate his priorities in his career, in his flying, and in his life.

Hamfist Down! picks up where Hamfist Over the Trail left off, with Hamilton “Hamfist” Hancock trying to survival and escape after being shot down over Laos. We follow Hamfist as he makes it to safety, only to experience new dangers as he takes to the sky again as a Forward Air Controller. On every mission, he worries about his true love waiting for him in Japan and whether or not he’ll ever see her again.

SCREENSHOT - Bonus Edition
This edition includes a bonus feature - Part One of John's new book, The Rockets' Red Glare, a blockbuster thriller about simultaneous dirty bomb attacks on America disguised as July 4th fireworks displays.

Eighteen fifty-caliber rounds from the hidden automatic weapon shred the bricks and beams of the building, and the drug dealer standing in front of it. Lightning flashes from the parked truck and locks onto an infamous pedophile, thrashing him around like a rodeo cowboy on an angry bull, leaving him smoking, and just about medium-rare. A rocket propelled grenade lifts a three-ton SUV off the ground, and gravity returns it, leaving the terrorist and his entourage inside looking like s’mores scattered in the wreckage. The swimming pool suddenly becomes alive with electricity, and the mobster and his mistress struggle to escape as each pulse slams their bodies, and they decide to just float, face-down.
Screenshot is on the air, and for a modest fee, you can watch it all happen on your computer. Real. Live. Interactive.
Every week, Screenshot offers up a new execution, the live, real-time murder of someone who probably deserves it. Each bizarre weapon is hand-crafted in his high-tech lair. Each execution done remotely by a lucky guest assassin. And all of it hidden in the virtual world of the Internet, impenetrable.
Seth Mathias is drawn into the events by his reporting job, and his past history with violent death. As his own investigation, assisted by a rogue FBI computer geek and the revolutionary ideas of a discredited scientist, gets closer to the truth, Screenshot targets this band of pursuers for a new weapon. At the same time, the FBI itself becomes suspicious of their activities, sending its agent to round them up for some questions of their own. Questions whose answers will land them all in jail.
So the race is on, and second place is last place.
SCREENSHOT – where virtual reality gets real.
