Noble Beginnings: A Jack Noble Thriller (Jack Noble #1)
In March of 2002, while the eyes of the world focused on Afghanistan, Jack Noble finds himself on the outskirts of Baghdad, Iraq. A Marine in name only, Jack is on-loan to the CIA. Normally an integral part of the team, he finds that he is nothing more than a security detail in Iraq.

Jack and his partner Bear have a run-in with four CIA special agents over the treatment of an Iraqi family. Within hours Jack and Bear are detained.

All Jack wanted was to finish his enlistment and move on with his life. All he did was intervene and save a family from unwarranted violence at the hands of four CIA agents. But he soon discovers that he did far more than intervene. He has placed himself dead square in the middle of a conspiracy that reaches the highest levels of the U.S. government.

This Jack Noble political thriller is not for the faint of heart!

Not only is it unhealthy, but it is almost unavoidable. Food growers and makers have been adding sugar to almost every imaginable food and beverage since the 1970s (including baby formula), and today it is a leading contributor to the obesity epidemic as well as many chronic diseases.

Shell Game
“Banking has never seemed so dirty as it does in “SHELL GAME,” the pulse-pounding new thriller from Joseph Badal. The author brings a lifetime of business experience to this tale, which shows how banking regulations can ruin lives and how a villain can manipulate such rules for his own gain. Don't miss it!”
—Steve Brewer, author of “LOST VEGAS”

“Shell Game is a financial thriller using the economic environment created by the capital markets meltdown that began in 2007 as the backdrop for a timely, dramatic, and hair-raising tale. Joseph Badal weaves an intricate and realistic story about how a family and its business are put into jeopardy through heavy-handed, arbitrary rules set down by federal banking regulators, and by the actions of a sociopath in league with a corrupt bank regulator.

Like all of Badal’s novels, “Shell Game” takes the reader on a roller coaster ride of action and intrigue carried on the shoulders of believable, often diabolical characters. Although a work of fiction, “Shell Game,” through its protagonist Edward Winter, provides an understandable explanation of one of the main reasons the U.S. economy continues to languish. It is a commentary on what federal regulators are doing to the United States banking community today and, as a result, the damage they are inflicting on perfectly sound businesses and private investors across the country and on the overall U.S. economy.

“Shell Game” is inspired by actual events that have taken place as a result of poor governmental leadership and oversight, greed, corruption, stupidity, and badly conceived regulatory actions. You may be inclined to find it hard to believe what happens in this novel to both banks and bank borrowers. I encourage you to keep an open mind. “Shell Game” is a work of fiction that supports the old adage: You don’t need to make this stuff up.

“Joseph Badal is like the guy in the commercials who is “The Most Interesting Man In The World.” ”
—Larry B. Ahrens, CEO Dynamic

The iCandidate (The Michael Bennit Series)
When A Traditional Candidate Meets The iCandidate, the Nation Will Never Be the Same!
"We're going to run the first virtual front porch campaign."
All Michael Bennit wants to do is be the best high school teacher he can be. However, when he loses a bet to his over-achieving class of history students, he finds himself in unfamiliar territory: a candidate running for a seat in the U.S. House of Representatives.

With no money, and only his students to run his campaign, Michael sets a plan in motion to be the country’s first virtual candidate. Leveraging the potential of social media, his campaign becomes the epicenter of national attention and a target for a desperate incumbent fanatical about hanging onto power - at any cost.

The iCandidate follows the plight of four people caught in the firestorm of mass media, social media, and dirty politics. In the end, lives will be changed and the political landscape of the country forever altered, but will the lesson of it all be lost?

˃˃˃ An Intelligent and Refreshing Read For All Ages
The story is written from the perspectives of four different characters, giving the reader a much richer personal connection to the characters.

˃˃˃ More Than Just a Political Novel
The iCandidate is more than just another political novel. As a teacher and a soldier, the protagonist brings a lot to the table in this page turner. Although the book is set against the backdrop of a political campaign, the themes it explores about social media and society, education in America, and how we react to a pervasive media culture all add to the spice of the novel.

˃˃˃ A Glimpse Into the Future!
Social media is everywhere today! It is a powerful tool, but are we too trusting of it? This must read book examines that question in a fun and entertaining way.

Tabb) story of David, a loner in his late 20s from New York City who suffers from blackout migraines and has a penchant for painkillers. He wakes one morning, freezing in the backseat of his car, 1,500 miles from home, with no idea how he got there. After hearing a horrifying voicemail, he embarks on a harrowing journey through America's heartland, searching for his estranged brother and his brother's wife, while attempting to piece together his own fractured memory. Along the road, David meets a cast of strange and disturbing characters who become suspects in his clouded and paranoid mind.

[#39 -  a vampire book with a bunch of good reviews for those who appreciate this genre.]

Free From Stackpole.
Stackpole puts a book or two up for free periodically, lately every couple of days.  I have read several of their free books. Some interesting stuff. Most of what I have seen is WWII German military history, with varying quality of translation, some other military history from lesser known units, along with some fishing and other outdoors oriented books.
