Free Kindle Books 12-19-13

General notes to free Kindle book posts

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.

Black Ops Bundle: Volume One
The Black Ops Bundle: Volume 1 introduces three gripping series, in three full-length novels--all intricately linked to the clandestine world of Black Ops. From the depraved killing fields of war torn Serbia, the turbulent streets of Northern Ireland, and the shadowy corridors of the Kremlin, come three covert warriors with one common objective - SURVIVE.

Parallax View (4.3 stars/73 reviews) - A Top-Secret Document. A CIA operative, alone and isolated. And a faceless group, determined to prevent her from completing her mission. Can Tracie Tanner stay alive long enough to stop an act of treachery so violent it could trigger World War III?

Veil of Civility (4.7 stars/27 reviews) - For years, former IRA-man Declan McIver has lived under the radar -- married to a beautiful woman and operating a successful business -- but that life is about to change. When a meeting with an old friend goes horribly wrong, Declan finds himself on the run from a shadowy conspiracy that will stop at nothing to keep their evil intentions a closely guarded secret.

Black Flagged (4.2 stars/242 reviews)- A graduate of the Department of Defense's experimental Black Flag program, Daniel Petrovich carries a secret he's taken extreme measures to keep buried. In exchange for the promise of a clean slate, he agrees to carry out one final mission. Daniel's life is about to disintegrate. To survive, he'll be forced to release a dark side he'd fought for years to suppress.

[#17. I have read Black Flagged and liked it. It is kind of far fetched but enjoyable. I gave it 4 stars. I have not read the others.]

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. Occasionally I have seen some craft type books.
