Free Kindle Books 9-4-13

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 2 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.

Doing Bizness: A Nuclear Thriller
Warhead engineer Anton Zvezda goes AWOL in disgust when his strategic nuclear bomber base mutinies against Moscow and declares loyalty to independent Ukraine. His only comfort after the nightmare of the Soviet Union’s collapse is his Russian Orthodox faith. But when a breakaway Ukrainian church brings signs of the Apocalypse and threatens his religion, he puts his warhead skills to work on a terrifying plot.

Getting Kiev a modern tracking system for what is suddenly the world’s third largest nuclear arsenal will help American businessmen Neil Neilson and Dan Kruger keep their jobs. It will also keep the world safe from would-be smugglers -- like the Ukrainian official peddling a secret stash of bomb-grade uranium. But Washington bureaucrats block their efforts at every turn.

Meanwhile, in Kiev, Iraqi spy Tariq abu Bakr is shopping for a Bomb – on pain of death. That is, until the brilliant and beautiful Sveta learns the secret that can thwart his plans and achieve her own ambitions.

The USSR’s demise unleashed a flood of radioactive materiel still at risk for smuggling and diversion. Doing Bizness is about how it began. International intrigue, high-octane sex and a pair of monks on a mission, mix into a radioactive time bomb propelled to a startling, and deadly, conclusion.

Based on true events – both surreal and terrifying -- it really could have happened.

The enigmatic Australian SAS commando awakens into a maelstrom of death and destruction, his memory in tatters, and his former friend and companion dead.

In his hunt for answers, Wes uncovers much more than he was searching for, and enters a war which could see the entire planet destroyed as beasts of ice and perils from outside our realm of reality threaten humanity's very existence.

Wes must try to find a way to stop a foe that cannot be stopped, and will use anything at his disposal to ensure mankind is not reduced to slavery by the creatures which founded some of the most terrifying fables of all time.
