The Watchman's File, by Barry M. Lando. (Still 0.99?)


"Barry Lando, an expert in Middle Eastern affairs, uses his vast journalistic experience to try himself at something completely new for him - a novel. And the outcome is an action-packed, exotic and controversial adventure that spans France, Israel and the United States. " -- Amazon reviewer

“Ed, look. Something has happened. It’s about your country and mine. It’s serious—believe me. Come!" Ed Diamond, reporter for “Focus”, America's preeminent TV news show, is summoned urgently to Israel by an old friend, Dov Ben-Ami, formerly a top official of Israel's Mossad. But before they can meet, a terrorist bomb blows Dov apart. Determined to discover why the Israeli was killed, Diamond embarks on the most astonishing investigation he’s ever undertaken. From the Dead Sea to the Old City of Jerusalem, to Tel Aviv and Paris, Washington and New York, he unravels an on-going mystery that began with the nefarious links between America’s greatest corporations and Hitler’s Third Reich. In the end, Ed attempts to thwart a deadly terrorist attack targeting Manhattan.

He’s pitted against one of the U.S.'s most powerful families and a fanatical group of right-wing Israelis, ready to kill to protect a World War II intelligence coup that is still Israel's most potent weapon and most closely guarded secret, "The Watchman's File."

ALTDORF (The Forest Knights: Book 1), by J. K. Swift. (Still free?)

"This was a terrific book! It has got knights, sword fights, druids, damsels, and heroes who stand up for justice for their people. I stayed up into the wee hours of the morning to finish it." -- Amazon reviewer

**MORGARTEN (Book 2) now available on Amazon**

ALTDORF
(Book 1 of The Forest Knights Duology)

A wild land too mountainous to be tamed by plows...
A Duke of the Holy Roman Empire, his cunning overshadowed only by his ambition...
A young Priestess of the Old Religion, together with a charismatic outlaw, sparking a rebellion from deep within the forests...
And an ex-Hospitaller caught between them all.

"Re-imagining the William Tell legend--without William Tell."

At the end of the thirteenth century, five hundred orphans and second sons are rounded up from villages in the Alpine countryside and sold to the Hospitaller Knights of St John. Trained to serve as Soldiers of Christ, they fight in eastern lands they know nothing about, for a cause they do not understand.

Thomas Schwyzer, released from his vows by the Grandmaster of the Hospitallers, returns to the land of his birth a stranger. Once a leader of men, and captain of the Order's most famous war galley, he now settles into the simple life of a ferryman. He believes this new role to be God's reward for years of faithful service fighting the Infidel in Outremer.

Seraina, considered a witch by most, a healer by some, is a young woman with a purpose. A Priestess of the Old Religion, and the last Druid disciple of the Helvetii Celts, she has been gifted by the Great Weave to see what others cannot. Her people need her guidance and protection now more than ever. For Duke Leopold of Habsburg, in his efforts to control the St. Gotthard Pass, builds a great Austrian fortress in Altdorf. Once finished, the Habsburg occupation will be complete, but the atrocities visited upon her people will have just begun.

Set in medieval Switzerland, ALTDORF, a novel of The Forest Knights, is the first book in a two-book series.
