Kindle Free Pick of the Week - JFK and the Green Beret

In tragic November gunshots rang out in Dallas and reverberated around the world, marking the loss of America’s beloved president, John F. Kennedy. The public has forever remained skeptical of who really fired those fateful shots and where they originated. JFK and the Green Beret does not attempt to prove who pulled the trigger, instead this historical novel examines leading conspiracy theories and intriguing circumstances surrounding the assassination by creating a page-turning thriller set in the rugged last frontier of Alaska.

Special Forces Captain Roy Aston survives an ambush in Southeast Asia after the White House recalls the rescue mission, violating the hallowed credo ‘Never leave a man behind.' The Green Beret, intent on avenging the death of his men, returns to Washington and retraces the cease-and-desist order to the national security advisor, Charles Albert. The president’s advisor, fearing for his own life, claims Kennedy issued the order to be with Aston's wife, modernizing the story of King David and Uriah. Outraged, the Green Beret responds by doing what he’s trained to do: kill.

Kindle Free Pick of the Week - Insights From Beyond the Lens: Landscape Photography

Maybe you received a new camera for Christmas.

Insights from Beyond the Lens is a short new book from landscape photographer Robert Rodriguez Jr that explores the art and craft of landscape photography from a holistic perspective. Based on real world experiences as a photographer as well as an instructor, speaker, and blogger, Robert distills his approach to capturing evocative images in a series of essays based on his popular Beyond the Lens blog.

Beautifully illustrated with Robert's original photographs, you'll get an inside look at the mental process Robert uses when he's in the field scouting and making his images.

While many books focus on the gear and technology, the aim here is to look inside the motivation, passion, and vision involved in successful landscape photography. Go behind the scenes as Robert explains how several images were made, how he draws inspiration from the Hudson River School of painters, and what resources he recommends for further exploration.

Kindle Free Pick of the Week - Death Will Extend Your Vacation: A Humorous New York Mystery

A clean and sober group house might not be everyone's idea of a dream vacation in the Hamptons, but the aptly named Deadhampton seems just about perfect for recovering alcoholic Bruce Kohler, his main man Jimmy, and BFF Barbara the World-Class co-dependent. (Meaning she simply cannot mind her own business.)

Even the neighbors seem kindred spirits. Down the road's a big house in the dunes owned by a clean and sober playboy with a motley crew of house guests in recovery from drug, love, and sex addictions, compulsive overeating, bulimia, and anorexia, not to mention good old-fashioned alcoholism.

Kindle Free Pick of the Week - Classic American Road Trips - Route 66

If you are fascinated by Route 66, this is your ebook.

There were long-distance American highways before Route 66 but none has endured longer in the country's psyche. John Steinbeck first dubbed Route 66 the “Mother Road” to describe the promise the highway held when thousands of poor Oklahoma and Arkansas families were blown off their farms by the Dust Bowl drought conditions of the 1930s and forced to head to California. The 2,400-mile, dog bowl-shaped roadway from Chicago to Los Angeles inspired popular songs, movies and an iconic television show that lured millions of travelers to it two lanes of concrete. Route 66 was done in by the interstate system - some of which was laid on top of the old road - and doesn’t appear on modern maps anymore but lives forever in the imaginations of any motorist with a hint of wanderlust.
